About Endpoint Protector and CoSoSys

The history goes like this. CoSoSys is the company and Endpoint Protector is our main product. Back in 2004 when the company was founded, Endpoint Protector did not exist. It was released in 2008 and it was then when we began to make the switch and bring Endpoint Protector forward. It better expresses the kind of solutions that we offer, protecting companies’ endpoints against data threats like theft, loss or leakage. We are true believers in the saying “A good product speaks for itself”, so our mindset and our branding respect it.

Fun fact on our brand

It does not happen that often, but when it does, it makes us smile – the most common spelling mistake for our company name is CoCoSys. The correct name is CoSoSys. It is an acronym for Controller Software Systems.
