About ZLT Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH & Co KG
Since 1993, the ZLT Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH &
Co KG (ZLT) has been developing, manufacturing and
marketing Zeppelins of New Technology.
Based on the technology introduced by the very company
founded over 100 years ago by Count Ferdinand von
Zeppelin, ZLT has kept intact the business combination for
airship development and manufacturing to this day,
preserving the memory of the world famous airships
the early 20thcentury.
About 100 Windows XP workstations within ZLT offices, all
with interfaces and ports such as USB or CD/DVD devices,
have been available for easy access by all users. Accidental
loss or deliberate data theft of company data via standard
interfaces through the endpoints was theoretically possible
for everyone. Our challenge was to prevent this from
The use of portable programs and even executing files and
applications from portable storage devices needs to be
controlled and monitored carefully. Additional protection
against the introduction of malware such as Stuxnet
(Conficker) by such devices was also required by ZLT.
The ZLT Zeppelin Luftschifftechnik GmbH had been using
for quite some time the Endpoint Protector 2009 software
solution to ensure the security of their PC interfaces.
Other software solutions that were evaluated in the process
have been DeviceWatch, DeviceGuard and Safend.
By using the Endpoint Protector Hardware Appliance for the
central management of all interfaces and ports, the internal
protection of the company network and the transparency of
user activity in connection with portable device use has
become even easier for the IT department.
Administration and management are rendered extremely
easy by the intuitive Web-based reporting and
administration interface. Through its device control
and data loss prevention features such as file tracing
shadowing, the appliance provides a consistent record of all
activities, allowing an ongoing investigation of any activity
related to port and portable device use and possible reporting
to the company's management in the event of irregularities.
