Resilient Security for Asplundh’s Growing Mobile Workforce
Asplundh Uses Absolute Secure Endpoint to Protect its Distributed Workforce, Data, and Devices
International vegetation management enterprise, Asplundh, relies on more than 35,000 service professionals across North America. The nature of their full-service business requires 95 percent of the company’s workforce to be mobile.
Managing Growing Number of Devices
Asplundh has grown significantly in the past ten years, organically and through acquisition. With such a large distributed workforce, the devices being used also increased and required better protection to harden their endpoint security posture.
This challenge led the IT team to seek a solution to help them see and manage the growing number of devices in their fleet, secure the endpoints that are regularly off the corporate network, and maintain compliance when users disable security tools or install incompatible software.
How They Did It
Increased Visibility Across All Endpoints
By activating Absolute Secure Endpoint on more than 7,000 of their endpoints, Asplundh gained uncompromised visibility across its device fleet.
Safeguarding Applications, Devices, and Data
In addition, if a negligent user or external attacker tries to disable or remove a security application, Absolute Application ResilienceTM technology automatically reinstalls it. When a device is lost or stolen, IT can now track its location to recover it or remotely wipe the data on it.
Self-Healing Applications Minimizes Risk and Ensures Compliance
With Absolute Secure Endpoint, Asplundh can now ensure critical security applications covered in the Absolute Application Resilience catalog have self-healing capabilities on all endpoints, no matter the location, which provides a resilient layer of protection, helping to prevent a security compromise.
Keeping Devices Safe and Secure, No Matter Where They Are
Just one at-risk device could leave Asplundh vulnerable to both severe brand damage and costly non-compliance penalties. Absolute Secure Endpoint helps them rest easy that their data is secure, no matter where the device is located.
For the Asplundh team, Absolute Secure Endpoint:
- Makes both hardware and software inventory management easier for Asplundh, increasing its efficiency and accuracy
- Ensures critical security applications covered in the Absolute Application Resilience catalog have self-healing capabilities on all endpoints, no matter the device’s location
- Gains better visibility into devices and improved its device recovery and data protection capabilities
