End point data protection

January 2010 Cyber Security

Cyberoam, a vendor of identity-based unified threat management solutions, has announced the launch of its End Point Data Protection suite to secure corporate data and manage IT assets. This suite extends Cyberoam’s security protection from the gateway to the endpoint, reinforcing its presence as a complete security provider.

The extensive use of removable storage devices and file sharing applications makes end points the most vulnerable areas with research statistics showing more than 50% of data loss incidents originating at end points. The average total cost of a corporate data breach stands at $6,3 million and lost business accounts for 65% of breach costs, according to a study by the Ponemon Institute. End point data protection is thus recognised as a critical step in cutting data losses and delivering immediate ROI.

Cyberoam’s End Point Data Protection suite fills the gap for a dedicated end point security solution, supporting up to 3000 users, Cyberoam meets the data protection requirements of SMB and enterprise segments.

Says Harish Chib, VP of new business development at Cyberoam, “Blended threats do not distinguish between the gateway and the end point to gain entry. With the launch of the end point data protection suite, Cyberoam will secure organisations at the gateway and the desktop, offering a single, complete security solution.”

Cyberoam’s End Point Data Protection suite consists of four modules: Data Protection and Encryption, Device Management, Application Control, and Asset Management. With its policy-driven data protection and asset management, the suite delivers identity and group-based policy control as well as activity logging to provide comprehensive control and visibility of data transfer over removable devices, applications, chat applications, network sharing and printers.

Even as Cyberoam offers control with role-based access to removable devices and applications, its real benefits come in the form of high granularity in defining customisable whitelists and blacklists. User identity-based control over file handling, granular controls over data transfer based on user, group, time, file name, type, size, location, extending its controls outside the network in addition to creation of shadow copies ensures that Cyberoam delivers effective data security. Encryption and decryption controls of the file or removable device prevent data leakage either through loss of device or malicious transfer of data to unauthorised end points.

The Asset Management module for Windows enables organisations to take automated hardware and software inventory in addition to automating patch management, handling bug fixes across the network irrespective of the geographic location, allowing organisations to meet securitycompliance requirements.
