The leading alternative to Sophos Device Control
SAMSUNG R&D Institute
Samsung’s R&D Institute needed a DLP solution that could help to manage insider threats and monitor employee activity related to data transfers.
Samsung’s R&D Institute chose Endpoint Protector by CoSoSys because of its multi-OS capabilities. Besides Windows, Endpoint Protector efficiently safeguards sensitive data on macOS and Linux-based operating systems. What’s more, Endpoint Protector is the only enterprise DLP to offer same-day support for the latest macOS releases, closing any gaps in protection when new OS updates are made.
The team uses Endpoint Protector to control peripheral devices connected to employee machines (USB drives, smartphones, and more), and scans and protects data in motion with content inspection and contextual scanning. This prevents data leakage and data loss through various exit points, including web browsers, email clients, and applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Skype, or Dropbox.
