This module prevents data leakage and data loss through various exit points, including web browsers, email clients, and applications such as Microsoft Outlook, Skype, or Dropbox. It also allows controlling internet access and uploading facilities.

For Samsung R&D Institute, it was advantageous that Endpoint Protector offers cross-platform protection. The company chose our solution because, besides Windows, it can efficiently safeguard sensitive data on macOS and Linux-based operating systems. It also provides feature parity, meaning that macOS and Linux-running computers get the same level of protection as those running on Windows. What’s more, Endpoint Protector offers zero-day support for macOS, meaning that it is compatible with newly released macOS versions, and data protection can continue as usual.

Samsung R&D Institute rated Endpoint Protector’s features, granularity, staff availability when calling or asking for assistance, support, and updates as very good. The ease of installation and ease of use of the product was rated as excellent by the company.
