12th May 2021 – It has been announced today that NetMotion Software, a leading provider of connectivity and security solutions, has signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by Absolute Software Corporation, a leader in Endpoint Resilience solutions.
Absolute is an endpoint-centric security company and a leader in Endpoint Resilience solutions. NetMotion brings a network-centric security platform with a proven ability to maintain a resilient connection across networks. This enables users to securely access organisational resources on-premise or in the cloud, whilst moving through corporate, home and offsite locations without the need to reconnect or re-authenticate. With the addition of NetMotion, Absolute will offer a next-generation solution that combines Endpoint Resilience and network continuity, delivering secure access while enhancing both the security posture of the organisation and the end-user experience.
Christopher Kenessey, NetMotion’s CEO, said of the news:
“As the world moves away from legacy networking models, and organizations aggressively adopt cloud-based services, there is an increased, urgent demand for zero-trust secure access solutions. This acquisition presents Absolute with a compelling opportunity that will help solve the issue of user-degraded experience while meeting new, and continuously evolving, expectations for resilience across both endpoints and network security. Together, Absolute and NetMotion will empower IT and security teams with the visibility, control and advanced intelligence needed to deliver a seamless and secure digital user experience on any device or network, anywhere.”
