Daysoft Ltd. implemented Endpoint Protector to apply the same data protection policies on all workstations and to add on another security layer in order to prevent data loss and data leaks.
Different data regulations, additional security, cross-platform abilities
Device Control, Content Aware Protection, Enforced Encryption, eDiscovery modules
Easy deployment, complete control, cross-platform use
Daysoft Ltd. was searching for a DLP solution with cross-platform capabilities that allows applying the same data protection policies on all workstations.
They needed a tool that supports the compliance requirements of different data protection regulations, such as the PCI DSS.
The company was also looking for an additional layer of security to prevent data loss and data leaks.
Daysoft Ltd. is using all Endpoint Protector modules: Device Control for USB and peripheral port control, Content Aware Protection for monitoring data in motion, Enforced Encryption for automatic USB encryption, and eDiscovery for scanning data at rest.
The Device Control module was built with flexibility in mind. Policies can be applied not only on a global level but also to particular groups such as departments or people involved in a specific project or to certain computers, users, or devices. Combined with Enforced Encryption, companies can ensure that any company data copied onto USBs will be automatically encrypted with government-approved 256bit AES CBC-mode encryption. The Content Aware Protection module helps companies scan and protect data in motion with content inspection and contextual scanning of data.
“Having purchased and implemented Endpoint Protector, we are heavily implementing and making use of the Content Aware Protection module; this allows us to monitor and block sensitive data from leaving our network. Content Aware Protection blocks data being transmitted via email, web browsers, cloud services, social media, and more. This allows us to be more compliant in regards to PCI and mitigates the risk of financial penalties,” - he added.
For Daysoft Ltd., it was advantageous that Endpoint Protector offers cross-platform protection. According to the company, the easy deployment of the product and its user-friendliness are also among its strengths. Daysoft Ltd. rated Endpoint Protector’s features, granularity, ease of installation, and staff availability when calling or asking for assistance excellent. They rated the ease of use, support, and updates as very good.
Daysoft Ltd. has chosen Endpoint Protector because of its cross-platform capabilities, which include Windows, macOS, and Linux-based computers. Another reason was the solution’s easy deployment and user-friendliness.
