Senforce Unveils Encryption to Combat Threats

Senforce unveils Endpoint Security Suite 3.5, which enables customers to mitigate risk associated with stolen or lost data on removable devices

DRAPER, Utah -- Senforce Technologies® Inc., the leader in endpoint security management, today launched the powerful next generation Endpoint Security Suite 3.5 (ESS 3.5) incorporating the new Senforce Encryption Solution. The Senforce Encryption Solution included in ESS 3.5 enables customers to mitigate risk associated with stolen or lost data on removable devices including laptops, flash drives and USB storage devices such as thumb drives. ESS 3.5 also protects against Thumbsucking, the newest removable storage device threat. Thumbsucking (www.thumbsuckingthreat.com) is a method in which employees use unauthorized USB devices such as thumb drives to "suck" critical data from the endpoint, thereby putting organizations at risk for data leakages.

Building on the industry’s first comprehensive endpoint security suite, ESS 3.5 now includes new capabilities for file and folder encryption requiring authorization prior to viewing stored data. ESS 3.5 also includes Wi-Fi control, application control, personal firewall, and anti-virus and anti-malware policy control. The system easily manages encryption keys throughout the enterprise via the distributed security policy, making data protection enforcement transparent to the end-users and easy for administrators.

“There are constantly breaking news stories involving stolen or misplaced laptops and USB devices, which hold sensitive corporate data,” said Ed McGarr, vice president of marketing for Senforce. ”Organizations must take proactive measures to ensure their end point devices are protected and safe from malicious threats that can result in the exploitation of critical data.”

The Senforce Encryption Solution is a key component of Senforce’s award-winning, next generation ESS 3.5. Using the ESS 3.5 central console, a security administrator can quickly and easily define a comprehensive corporate endpoint security policy. The policy is captured in XML, encrypted and distributed to all of an enterprise’s endpoint devices enabling enforcement of the policy regardless of the device’s location and connection status.

“Organizations today are feeling the business impact of insecure endpoints and realize the need to implement a strong and enforceable endpoint security strategy,” said Charles Kolodgy, IDC research director. “As organizations become increasingly mobile, it is critical to provide encryption for removable devices as part of an overall endpoint protection strategy to secure data from increasingly sophisticated threats.”
