CoSoSys Introduces Geofencing for iPhones, iPads and Android Devices in Endpoint Protector 4 Update

New Endpoint Protector Upgrade Brings Innovative Features to Further Secure Data on Computers and Mobile Devices

Cluj-Napoca, Romania (October 27th, 2014) - With the evolution of businesses and users needs, CoSoSys, a leading developer of cross-platform Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Device Control and Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions, today announced the release of a suite of new and innovative features for the Endpoint Protector 4 platform.

"We have added location-based Mobile Device Management policies which represent a major industry milestone to bring us closer to the cutting-edge of MDM technologies. At the same time, our Data Loss Prevention solution contains new features that will help both administrators and users to do their job without compromising data security," said Roman Foeckl, CoSoSys CEO.

The new Endpoint Protector version brings updates for functionalities and administration options for all modules: Device Control, Content-Aware Data Loss Prevention and Mobile Device Management (MDM). IT Administrators now have the capabilities to create location-based policies for MDM with Geofencing. This feature unlocks the contextual MDM policies, helping IT Administrators establish company-wide restrictions for the use of camera, AirDrop, iCloud, and other functionalities within the perimeter of the company only. As a result, management and mobile data security becomes significantly more flexible for administrators and less intrusive for the users. Apps and WiFi settings can be also pushed when employees enter the range of the Geofence.

In addition to the Geofencing capabilities, Endpoint Protector includes enhanced Content Aware Protection capabilities that provide the threshold functionality needed to create a company-wide Predefined Content Policy. The threshold defines up to which number of violations a file transfer is allowed. For example, if the threshold is setup to 5, a file containing 4 credit card numbers will be allowed for transfer, while a file containing 5 or more credit card numbers will be blocked. With the threshold level set, redundant inspection of data is reduced. Additionally, advances have been made to reduce false positives, with the exclusion of file extensions to be inspected and shadowed.

Helping companies to prevent data losses on Macs remains a top priority for CoSoSys. Therefore, Endpoint Protector supports Mac OS X Yosemite for Device Control and Content Aware Protection. Moreover, Linux compatibility for Device Control has been extended to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS to continue enabling Linux community to prevent data loss. For more updates, visit the Release Notes section:
