The population of remote employees has surged due to the coronavirus pandemic, and along with this, the need to work securely from home has gained momentum. Organizations opting for Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solutions need to consider taking proper data security precautions.
Desktop-as-a-Service solutions such as Amazon WorkSpaces promise improved enterprise security, as there is no sensitive data on end-users’ devices. However, there’s still a risk that users will store documents locally. Companies can address this risk with a Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution that allows them to monitor and manage the movement of data from DaaS platforms to devices.
Hosted on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform, Amazon WorkSpaces offers organizations an easy and secure way to provide virtual desktop environments for employees. As the data and applications are stored in Amazon’s secure cloud, some of the security issues that have arisen from the quick shift to remote work, are solved. Users can log in from wherever they want, removing the need to store data on portable storage devices. However, companies are advised to utilize dedicated security solutions to address all the challenges they might face.
Endpoint Protector, our enterprise-grade Data Loss Prevention solution, helps create a more secure environment when companies opt for Amazon WorkSpaces and ensures that sensitive data will not leave the AWS platform. Check out some of the benefits our DLP solution brings:
Prevents data loss
Our solution provides powerful, multi-layered protection for confidential data residing on virtual desktops as well as efficient data leak prevention. With Endpoint Protector, companies can easily monitor and control the movement of data. It also prevents data from accidental shares, sending it to the wrong recipient or saving it on unauthorized computers.
Endpoint Protector offers an advanced way of inspecting sensitive data such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or Intellectual Property (IP) based on both content and context. Our DLP product protects data in motion ranging from file type to predefined content based on dictionaries, regular expressions, or different regulations.
By choosing Endpoint Protector, you can keep up with the compliance requirements of various data protection regulations such as the GPDR, PCI DSS, HIPAA, CCPA, and more. It is easy to define sensitive data and protect it from compliance violations. Our solution provides predefined compliance profiles, and it also gives the possibility of defining customized compliance templates.
Minimizes insider threats
With Endpoint Protector, you can reduce the risks of malicious and inadvertent insider threats, thus preventing financial, legal, and reputational damages. Our DLP software ensures that confidential information such as customer data or sensitive business data is protected and that unauthorized users can’t share it or save it locally. It also offers valuable insights about what data is being transferred where and by whom.
Easy setup and short learning curve
Endpoint Protector can be up in 30 minutes, and it does not require advanced technical knowledge to run. By having a modular format, it offers data protection tailored to your needs and allows you to mix and match its features. The solution can be deployed hassle-free and managed from a single, user-friendly dashboard.
The built-in security features of Amazon WorkSpace aren’t sufficient to truly protect your sensitive data. If you’re looking for an industry-leading DLP solution to ensure that your data is safe, we invite you to get in touch with us and learn how we can support you in your efforts.
