HOUSTON -- VolumeShield, a leading provider of endpoint security solutions, today announced the release of AntiCopy Enterprise Edition v2.5. AntiCopy protects corporate workstation and laptop computers from data theft by blocking the unauthorized use of portable storage devices and removable media, such as USB memory sticks, External Hard Drives, PDAs, iPods, and CD/DVD Burners.
Portable storage devices enable anyone to remove sensitive information -- such as patient data, sales databases, legal documents or financial records from any computer -- quickly, easily, and without detection. The proliferation of these devices presents a major security threat and compliance issue for all organizations today. According to the 2006 CSI/FBI Computer Crime and Security Survey, the top three concerns of the information security professionals surveyed were data protection, policy and regulatory compliance, and leakage of proprietary information.
AntiCopy Enterprise Edition v2.5 provides a simple and effective solution for managing and auditing access to portable storage devices across a corporate network. With an easy-to-use management console, AntiCopy Enterprise Edition enables central definition and administration of device usage policies and monitoring of device access activity.
Endpoint security presents a major security challenge for companies like ours, said Jym Hubbard, group IT security analyst for Saga Group in the UK. Being in the insurance industry, we are subject to stringent regulations regarding customer information. We needed a solution to control the use of portable storage devices. VolumeShield AntiCopy was the right solution for us because of the ease of use, effective device control and auditing capabilities.
