Woburn, MA (PressExposure) November 25, 2009 -- Cyberoam, a vendor of identity-based Unified Threat Management solutions (UTM), today announced the launch of its Endpoint 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 provider of comprehensive security solutions.
Founded in 1999, Cyberoam is owned by Elitecore Technologies Limited, an Indo-US corporation with 400+ employees. Cyberoam's family of identity-based UTM appliances offers complete protection against existing and emerging Internet threats, including malware, viruses, worms, Trojans, spyware, phishing, pharming and other attack vectors.
Cyberoam's Endpoint 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 transfers over removable devices; applications; chat applications such as Skype, MSN and more; network sharing and printers.
Cyberoam's Endpoint Data Protection suite fills the gap for a dedicated endpoint security solution for small to mid-size businesses (SMB/SME) with existing solutions considered too highly priced and targeted at enterprises. Supporting up to 3000 users, Cyberoam meets the data protection requirements of both SMB and enterprise segments.
"Blended threats do not distinguish between the gateway and the endpoint to gain entry," said Harish Chib, Cyberoam Vice President, New Business Development. "With the launch of our Endpoint Data Protection suite, Cyberoam will secure organizations both at the gateway and desktop, offering a single, complete security cover for organizations."
Even as Cyberoam offers comprehensive control with role-based access to removable devices and applications, its real benefits come in the form of high granularity in defining customizable 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; and extending its controls outside the network in addition to creating 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 unauthorized endpoints.
The Asset Management module for Windows enables organizations to take automated hardware and software inventory in addition to automating patch management, handling bug fixes across the network irrespective of the geographic location, and allowing organizations to meet security compliance requirements.
Pricing & Availability: Available today, prices start at US$75 per license for the Cyberoam Data Protection Management Suite, which includes device control, application control, asset protection and data protection and encryption.
