Victoria’s Plurilock Security has partnered with Vancouver-headquartered Absolute Software to pair their Application Persistence capabilities with the company’s DEFEND continuous authentication solution.
Plurilock Security is an identity-centric cybersecurity solutions provider for workforces.
Last month Plurilock was named “Authentication Solution of the Year” at the 2021 Cybersecurity Breakthrough Awards, for its DEFEND product.
The partnership, announced at the InfoSec World Digital 2021 event, aligns with Absolute’s launch of Absolute Application Persistence-as-a-Service (APaaS) and allows Plurilock to embed the power of self-healing in its DEFEND continuous authentication product.
As a result of the partnership, Plurilock will offer a new comprehensive offering called DEFEND Persisted.
With the DEFEND Persisted offering, users will benefit from the existing continuous authentication technology, now with self-healing capabilities built in. By hardening DEFEND with Absolute’s Application Persistence, Plurilock is helping to ensure that their product remains healthy, installed, and working effectively across their customer base.
“We’re proud to partner with Absolute to leverage their firmware-embedded, self-healing connection to deliver our new DEFEND Persisted offering,” said Ian L. Paterson, CEO of Plurilock.
“In a time where more workforces are shifting to remote environments, continuous authentication is critical to ensure the security of devices. Absolute’s cutting-edge Persistence® technology will help provide assurance to our customers that their devices will remain protected, and that DEFEND will continue to invisibly authenticate users, even if cyber attackers attempt to uninstall or remove it from a device.”
