Absolute Software announced the launch of Absolute Application Persistence-as-a-Service (APaaS), empowering Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and system manufacturers to leverage Absolute’s firmware-embedded, self-healing device connection to strengthen the health and resiliency of their mission-critical applications.

By embedding Absolute’s Application Persistence capabilities into their software package, ISVs can continuously maintain the integrity of their endpoint applications to help ensure they remain healthy, installed, and working effectively across their entire customer base.

“In today’s work-from-anywhere environments, organizations are more reliant than ever on software - to both protect them from an onslaught of security threats, and ensure employees stay connected and productive,” said Edward Choi, SVP of Global Alliances at Absolute Software. “In order to best serve their customers and deliver maximum value, ISVs need their endpoint applications to be self-aware and capable of healing themselves if they are tampered with, accidentally removed, or otherwise stop working. This requires a different approach to application hardening and resilience - one that is built on an undeletable, firmware-embedded connection to devices and applications.”

With APaaS, Absolute is delivering a unique solution that enables ISVs to strengthen application resiliency with lower development costs and no ongoing code maintenance - and ultimately, deliver a higher return on software investments and strengthen security posture for their end customers. APaaS partners also have access to rich application health telemetry data (e.g., data on repairs and re-installs, app versions used in the wild, app integrity, and top failure reasons) that offers valuable insights into application health and performance, allowing for continuous optimization and improvement.

Additionally, building on its product integration announcement last month, Absolute has embedded its Application Persistence capabilities into NetMotion by Absolute’s Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) products – making a self-healing Zero Trust platform available to all customers using the NetMotion by Absolute product portfolio.
