Challenge

Already back in Windows NT times the Erich Utsch AG restricted the access to removable media. Over the years, this has been realized by utilizing different products, from AV-integrated applications to custom solutions. However, one challenge could not have been solved: Removable media access, controlled on a user basis.

Additionally, the usage of Linux Systems within separately secured environments is steadily increasing.

Solution

With the Endpoint Protector module “Device Control” both challenges could be solved. After the first contact with sales and delivery of a trial license as well as the virtual appliance the integration into the environment was done by the Erich Utsch AG within a short period of time. Due to the clearly arranged management website, the implementation of user-based authorization was possible without any problems. After a short test phase, the policies were set to active.

The Erich Utsch AG rated Endpoint Protector.14 on a scale from 1 to 5 (1 being “poor” and 5 being “excellent”), offering the highest point to granularity, ease of installation, support, and updates. Jörg Voosen said the following about the cooperation: “The Endpoint Protector Team is consistently friendly and helpful, the cooperation is based on partnership and an equal footing”.

Results

Erich Utsch AG has chosen Endpoint Protector for its Device Control module, helping them to monitor their employees’ activity in a flexible virtual environment.

With the Instant Clone technology currently deployed, our employees get a freshly assembled virtual machine with each login, when they log off, the used desktop gets deleted immediately. To ensure an efficient Device Control, the identification on a user basis is indispensable.
