As the only vendor embedded in more than 600 million devices, Absolute is uniquely positioned to empower organizations to prepare for, respond to and fully recover from a cyberattack. When the worst-case scenario does happen and organizations fall victim to threat actors’ nefarious tactics, Absolute Ransomware Response assures businesses can remediate, eradicate and fully recover from the attack – and in turn, mitigate prolonged downtime, financial loss and reputational damage. The solution ensures the highest-level of endpoint security, giving customers the resiliency to maintain control amid chaos and the reassurance that their mission-critical applications are safe, even when starting from ground-zero.

Absolute Ransomware Response enables organizations to assess their ransomware preparedness for endpoints, monitor endpoint cyber hygiene across the entire device fleet, and expedite endpoint recovery. Ultimately, Absolute Ransomware Response improves customers’ confidence in being able to prepare and quickly recover endpoints from ransomware attacks. In the stress of incident response, Absolute provides one less thing to worry about, facing threats together. Amid economic uncertainty, political unrest, and the accelerated adoption of “work-from-anywhere,” ransomware has become more prevalent, more sophisticated, and more capable of disruption than ever before. Organizations must plan for ‘when’ – not ‘if’ – they are successfully breached and bolster their preparedness and recovery efforts to all endpoint devices.

How we are different

- Ransomware is one of the biggest threats to businesses worldwide. In 2021, an organization suffered a ransomware attack every 11 seconds, and it’s expected there will be a new attack every two seconds by 2031, leaving businesses incapable of accessing critical data and unable to operate.
- Absolute Ransomware Response enables customers to expedite recovery from the expensive and prolonged negative consequences of falling victim to a ransomware attack through its unique, embedded self-healing technology. It helps avoid lengthy shutdowns, improves employee productivity during recovery, minimizes support costs and financial losses, and reduces the reputational damage caused by outages. Data shows the average cost of a data breach in 2022 is $4.35 million, up 13% since 2020. This technology mitigates the detrimental loss companies face in a ransomware attack.
- Absolute Ransomware Response equips businesses with the capabilities to keep operating even while under attack. This includes communicating with end users with compromised devices, freezing endpoints to preserve evidence for litigation purposes, and limiting further spread of infection. It also assures that endpoint security or other device management tools that were rendered inoperable are functioning under distress, and executes custom workflow and task automation commands to expedite device recovery leveraging a library of hundreds of custom scripts (e.g., re-imaging devices, shutting down a particular port, quarantining devices).
