Absolute

What is Absolute?

The Absolute platform is a cloud-based Endpoint Visibility and Control solution that allows you to see all your devices and applications, secure your data, and prove compliance.

Why Should You Use the Absolute Connector?

The Absolute connector provides visibility into the assets in your environment. You can use this visibility to:

  • ensure assets are managed per your security policies

  • derive relationships between assets, users, applications, and data

How Does This Connector Work?

Lucidum executes read-only requests to the Absolute REST API and ingests only meta-data about Absolute devices. Lucidum does not retrieve any data stored on your assets.
