AGF Chooses Promisec

France-based AGF selected the Promisec Spectator Professional to provide powerful enforcement of internal security policy

NEW YORK -- Promisec, Ltd., a leading provider of clientless endpoint security management (CESM) technology, today announced that France-based AGF, a leading insurance and financial services provider in more than 20 countries, and part of the Allianz Group, selected its flagship product, Promisec Spectator Professional, to provide powerful enforcement of internal security policy.

AGF will employ Promisec Spectator Professional to protect its 14,000 endpoints, providing clientless endpoint security management that arms IT managers with a centralized method to detect, prevent and repair irregularities originating from within the network’s workstations and servers.

“Compliance is important for us, particularly with respect to the processes that conform to the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) standard. With that in sight, we were looking for a comprehensive solution which efficiently detects all kind of threats on our workstations, particularly the ones circumventing our gateway solutions” says David Horvat, Manager of Information Systems at AGF. “During the tests we were impressed by the performance of Spectator Professional which enables us to be constantly informed on the violations of our security policies and to repair them. The solution’s agentless aspect was decisive in our choice because of the extreme ease of implementation and its security added value. Spectator Professional will contribute to the increased security level of our end-points and to the enforcement of our security policies”. concluded Sylvère Leger, responsible for Information Security Systems.

“We are pleased to add AGF to our customer base”. said Amir Kotler, CEO of Promisec. “The tremendous size of AGF, as well as it being a major player in the French financial sector strengthens Promisec’s strategy to offer its solutions to huge financial enterprises across the world. We are proud that such a well-known organization in France shares our security approach and has selected our solutions to secure their endpoints. We look forward to the addition of further organizations to our customer-base soon.”
