CoSoSys introduces Endpoint Protector Data Loss Prevention for Linux
New solution to further support enterprises and the fast growing Linux community
Cluj-Napoca, Romania and San Francisco, USA (February 29th, 2016): CoSoSys, leading vendor of Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Mobile Device Management solutions, announced today the release of Endpoint Protector DLP for Linux in Private Beta enabling protection against data leakages for confidential data on organization's Linux workstations.
Linux saw a notable increase in market share in 2015, with industry experts predicting continued growth in the coming years. As Linux has become an increasingly common operating system in the smartphone and cloud computing markets, enterprises require solutions that ensure their Linux devices and workstations remain secure.
"With a number of sectors including education, government, nuclear and aviation, relying extensively on Linux, we are pleased to announce Endpoint Protector DLP for Linux," said Roman Foeckl, CoSoSys CEO. "By continuing our work to support enterprises with mixed environments, we are able to empower organizations to protect sensitive data regardless the platform."
Endpoint Protector already runs on Linux distributions like Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, RedHat and CentOS with device control features to block the use of specific portable storage devices and prevent data loss and data theft. With the recently announcement Endpoint Protector 188.8.131.52, the content-aware DLP module is also available for Linux.
"Linux is becoming the de facto standard for security and IT infrastructures. This rate of adoption requires support in the form of technologies such as what CoSoSys is introducing today," said Mike Woster, COO at The Linux Foundation. "We look forward to increasing collaboration with CoSoSys."
The features include content filtering based on file type, predefined content (PII, credit card numbers, social security numbers, and others), and custom content with dictionaries of keywords and regular expressions. With Endpoint Protector DLP for Linux, IT administrators are now able to constantly track user data transfers to portable storage devices and the cloud as well as block certain file transfers. Based on comprehensive reports provided by the solution, organizations can detect data security incidents as they happen. The intuitive management console enables the easy implementation of the DLP policies on Linux workstations, as well as on Windows and Mac OS X, completing the data security systems.
Endpoint Protector 4 DLP for Linux runs on Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, CentOS, and RedHat distributions and it is available with server version 184.108.40.206. Since it is released in Private Beta, the client software can be requested at http://www.endpointprotector.com/linux.
