Centennial Software, developer of IT asset discovery and endpoint security solutions, has launched new version of its award-winning endpoint security software, Centennial DeviceWall 4.6, available in a Standard or OEM-specific Content Aware Editions.
The new editions not only makes DeviceWall the complete endpoint security product for the enterprise, but has also been optimised for content management and filtering (CMF), data loss prevention (DLP) and other security suite vendors, allowing them to quickly and easily integrate endpoint security functionality into existing security products.
New to 4.6 are enhancements to encryption, device support, policy management and more.
“As hackers look for more ingenious ways to infiltrate corporate networks, it is important that companies account for endpoints on the network,” said Drew Dressler, at Anchor Financial Mortgage Company.
“DeviceWall allows us to manage the connection of any portable storage device on the network and track what information is moved where and when. This type of functionality allows us to stay compliant with state and federal regulations, no matter what state we do business in. Any issue with our data in the wrong hands could cost us thousands in fines and retribution. Once DeviceWall was deployed on our network, I immediately knew it would be a permanent choice in my security profile.”
Recently named the “Recommended” product by SC Magazine in a May 2007 group test of USB security products, DeviceWall enables IT managers to centrally manage and protect their networks from the threats associated with portable storage devices such as iPods, USB sticks and smart phones.
The new product has been optimised to allow OEM partners such as CMF and DLP vendors to quickly and easily augment existing security solutions and bring new products to market fast. This includes branding packages, sales and marketing infrastructure, and support for other OEM and channel partners.
DeviceWall 4.6 also includes:
- A new user-based policy view that expands on the existing device-based view
- Per-user and per-device class logging controls
- Greater granularity and control of emerging device types
- MS SQL 2005 and MS SQL 2005 Express support
“Our research shows that four out of five organisations still do not have the effective measures in place to protect against threats associated with portable storage devices like the new SillyFD-AA virus which copies itself to a USB stick and propagates by auto running when reconnected to another PC,” said Howard Waterson, Asia Pacific Regional Manger at Centennial Software.
“The new release of DeviceWall not only addresses the evolving threats our existing customer base faces, but has been designed so it can be used by OEMs to complement an existing product.”
