Founded in 1993 as a response to the problem of laptop theft and loss, Absolute Software has become a leader in Endpoint Resilience™ solutions and remains the industry’s only undeletable defense platform, embedded in over half a billion devices. Since the early 2000s Absolute has partnered with top device manufacturers to install the software at the BIOS level of their firmware, giving Absolute a highly privileged position within the cybersecurity sector.
Enabling a permanent digital tether between the endpoint and the enterprise that distributes it, Absolute provides IT and security organizations with complete connectivity, visibility, and control, whether a device is on or off the corporate network, and empowers them with self-healing Endpoint™ security to ensure mission-critical apps remain healthy and deliver intended value. Absolute currently boasts over 13,000 global customers, 140 patents, and 500 million endpoints.
Absolute Software’s ARR as of March 31, 2021 was $120 million, representing a 19% increase over the previous year. Additionally, Absolute recently acquired NetMotion Software, Inc., a leading provider of network connectivity and security solutions, for $340 million. Christy Wyatt, the President and CEO of Absolute, has said she believes the acquisition better positions Absolute to provide customers with “resilient, autonomous endpoints and self-healing mobile network access.”
