Cyberoam Launches Data Protection Security Software

Endpoint Data Protection suite consists of four modules
WOBURN, Mass., November 23 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 family of identity-based UTM appliances offer 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."

Speaking about opening new opportunities for channel partners, Chib said, "Cyberoam is one of the few companies offering data protection and asset management in a single solution globally, meeting customer demand for a comprehensive, easy-to-manage solution. Our endpoint solution opens a whole new opportunity for channel partners for revenue generation and expanding the customer base. In fact, a poll of our global partners revealed that 59% wanted endpoint data protection including asset management from Cyberoam in their portfolio."

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, 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.

The extensive use of removable storage devices and file sharing applications makes end points the most vulnerable areas with research statistics showing more than 50% data loss incidents originating at endpoints. The average total cost of a corporate data breach stands at $6.3 million and lost business accounts for 65% of breach costs, according to a study by the Ponemon Institute. Endpoint data protection is thus increasingly being recognized as the critical immediate step in cutting data losses and delivering immediate ROI.
