New York's Astor Services For Children & Families Selects CoSoSys to Protect its Endpoints

Bronx-based non-profit organization Astor has chosen Endpoint Protector to secure its network against portable storage and lifestyle device threats

San Jose, CA, July 22, 2009. CoSoSys, vendor of the most innovative and effective applications for portable storage devices and endpoint security solutions, has been recently selected by the Astor Services For Children & Families to protect its network from the threats embedded by portable storage and lifestyle devices. Astor has selected the Endpoint Protector solution to increase its security and protect their network from both inside and outside threats and to comply with specific regulations of the State of New York.

Founded in 1953, Astor promotes the well-being of children, adolescents and their families through a range of programs that prevent and treat emotional problems and facilitate healthy development. The NGO has 300 PCs in its network and aimed to completely secure all USB devices in their environment. Moreover, as Astor is funded by the State of New York, they needed to prove compliance with Confidentiality and Privacy regulations. Endpoint Protector was the perfect fit for their requirements.

“We strongly believe Endpoint Protector is the best endpoint security solution in the market and also is the most flexible when it comes to costs. By implementing it, we succeeded in creating a safe environment, while taking full advantage of the portable devices our day to day activities required,” explained Glenn Ungaro, Astor Network Security Manager.

“As the risk of data loss, data leakage and data theft increases every day, both businesses and NGOs need to proactively monitor and regulate the use of portable devices, especially since they are currently vital to an efficient work flow. Endpoint Protector enables such companies to both secure their network and comply with local, countrywide and industry standards regarding data breach management and IT governance,” concluded Roman Foeckl, CEO of CoSoSys.

Endpoint Protector is a best-of-breed DLP (Data Loss Prevention) and removable media device control solution designed to minimize internal threats, reduce data leakage risks and proactively control devices connected to the endpoints. It allows IT departments to proactively take control of the device internal use, while tracking all data transferred in or out of the protected network and enforcing encryption of the data in transit on portable devices. Endpoint Protector is available as a free 30 day trial or online demo at http://www.EndpointProtector.com. Endpoint Protectors low TCO and support for both Windows and Linux Server Platforms makes it an excellent choice for NGOs and businesses alike.
