Endpoint Protector 4 wins 2016 Cybersecurity Excellence Award for Data Leakage Prevention (DLP)

Cluj-Napoca, Romania (April 20th, 2016) - CoSoSys is proud to announce that Endpoint Protector 4 has been named a winner in the 2016 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. CoSoSys' Endpoint Protector 4 was voted for best Data Leakage Prevention (DLP) product, by industry leaders, members of the LinkedIn Information Security Community, partners, customers and other stakeholders.

Endpoint Protector 4 Data Loss Prevention (DLP) for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux addresses top business security concerns related to data security, including controlling the use of portable storage devices, enforcing encryption and filtering data transfers through the most common exit channels.

"Congratulations to CoSoSys for being recognized as the winner in the Data Leakage Prevention product category of the 2016 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards," said Holger Schulze, founder of the Information Security Community. "With over 430 entries, the awards are highly competitive and our winners reflect the very best in product innovation and excellence in the cybersecurity space."

The content-aware DLP features allow organizations to create policies based on file type, predefined content and keywords, as well as monitor and block unauthorized data transfers, including computers outside the network and not connected to the server. For both situations, when data transfers are blocked or allowed but monitored, detailed tracking logs are available. This tracking provides valuable information and a document copy can be downloaded for audit. The product also scans data transfers to portable storage devices or blocks the use of these devices as required. Additionally, it enforces encryption on removable USB devices with EasyLock, ensuring documents can only be saved on encrypted devices.

"We are privileged that our product Endpoint Protector 4 won the best DLP award. It's rewarding to see how our efforts are recognized and awarded by such important information security organizations and industry leaders that voted our product as being the best solution for Data Leakage Prevention," said Roman Foeckl, Founder and CEO of CoSoSys.
