Company Overview

How we got here

Founded in 1993, Absolute was originally a platform to 'track-manage-trace' computers for the education sector.

In the early 2000s, we began to partner with device manufacturers. We had the privilege of being factory-embedded within the BIOS level of their firmware, making Absolute nearly impossible to remove.

This was a big step for us. But at the time, we had no idea how big it was.

That privileged position created something the world hadn’t seen yet: true resilience for a software agent. Whenever someone attempts to remove or reconfigure Absolute, it reasserts itself on the next boot sequence.

This technology, now called Persistence, allowed us to offer more and more value to our customers. Today, Absolute users can see all of their devices from a single pane of glass, remotely query and remediate them at scale, and even extend Persistence to the rest of their mission-critical applications, enabling true resilience across their organizations.

Absolute helps governments, corporations, agencies, educational institutions, and more to stay resilient in the face of growing and ever-changing cyber threats.
