Secure Access

Absolute Secure Web Gateway Service Add-On

Deliver a secure browsing experience for all – desk, mobile, or hybrid workers.

Protect against online security threats and infections

Unless employees are well trained and very careful, one inadvertent click can allow threat actors to exploit an employee’s device and gain a foothold to move laterally across the corporate network. Organizations need to protect against active threats, block access to inappropriate websites, and to prevent unauthorized data egress from employees’ devices. The Absolute Secure Web Gateway Service add-on module (powered by Ericom) helps address these challenges and rounds out Absolute's Mobile Security Service Edge capabilities.


Enhance end user productivity with a fully secure, native browsing experience for all – mobile, deskless, remote, and hybrid workers.

Protect users and your organization from sophisticated viruses, malware, credential theft, social engineering, and zero-day attacks.

Defend against data loss or leakage.

Secure Access FAQ

Absolute Secure Access is one of the company’s core product lines, which was added through the acquisition of NetMotion in July 2021. The product portfolio provides resilient network connectivity for users to securely access critical resources in the public cloud, private data centers, and on-premises. These products allow users to transition from an optimized, secure tunnel to a resilient Zero Trust approach, without impairing productivity or admin controls.

Absolute Secure Access encompasses three products:

  • Absolute Core provides security and confidentiality for data in motion by means of encryption and access controls. It also offers benefits to the end user, such as making tunnel and network sessions resilient and optimizing streaming video and audio.
  • Absolute Edge provides a software-defined perimeter via Zero Trust Network Access, creating a context-based, logical access boundary around an application or set of applications – wherever they're hosted. It shields applications from the Internet, making them invisible to unauthorized users. Access policies are enforced at the endpoint, avoiding latency and any data transgression.
  • Absolute Insights for Network™ offers diagnostic and experience monitoring capabilities across endpoints and network, allowing organizations to proactively monitor, investigate, and remediate end user performance issues quickly and at scale, even on networks that are not company-owned or managed.

Absolute Secure Access packages are offered in two flavors, Absolute Core™ and Absolute Edge™ (formerly called Complete) with the included products as outlined below. Regional variations might be available.

  • Absolute Core
    • Secure, optimized tunnel
    • Policy enforcement
    • Network Access Control (NAC)
  • Absolute Edge
    • Includes Absolute Core
    • Absolute ZTNA
    • Absolute Insights for Network

For Absolute Edge customers, Absolute offers the Absolute Secure Web Gateway Service (powered by Ericom) add-on module that tightly integrates with the extensive policy capabilities in Absolute Secure Access. It strengthens an organization’s security posture while improving end user experience.

Customers can easily upgrade their subscription between Absolute Core and Absolute Edge. Capabilities are additive and enabled via a software license key.

The Absolute Secure Web Gateway Service is an add-on module that tightly integrates with the extensive policy capabilities in Absolute Secure Access, strengthening your organization’s security posture while improving your end user experience. It preserves a natural browsing experience for mobile, deskless, remote, and hybrid workers while defending organizations from viruses, malware, malicious code, zero-day threats, and data loss or leakage. It safely inspects, scrubs, and inoculates Web content in a cloud container before delivering it safely to the user’s Web browser. The Absolute Secure Web Gateway Service extends the same level of protection normally only associated with office or hybrid workers to mobile, deskless, and field workers.

The Absolute Secure Web Gateway Service is available for free trial and purchase as an add-on module to Absolute Edge on-prem or SaaS.

Absolute Secure Access supports Apple® iPad and iPhone devices (iOS 11 and later), Apple MacOS (10.13 and later), Android devices (running on Android 5.0 or later), Android for Work, Samsung KNOX, Windows Pro Tablets, laptops, and other devices running Windows 8, 10, and 11.
