How Enforced Encryption Works?

Description

Enforced Encryption allows IT Administrators to extend their Device Control policy and make sure all confidential data transferred to USB storage devices is automatically encrypted. The solution can be used on both macOS and Windows computers.

Hi! My name is Natalie, and today we’ll take a look at the Enforced Encryption functionality of Endpoint Protector.

The Enforced Encryption functionality is enabled from Device Control, by assigning the “Allow Access if device is Trusted Device Level 1+” right to USB Storage Devices, - on Global/Group/Computer or User level. As soon as the user connects their USB device to their computer where the Endpoint Protector client is installed, the encryption application called EasyLock will be automatically pushed onto the device, prompting the user to define a password for the application.

After the EasyLock application has been successfully installed on the USB, the user can copy files from their computer inside the encrypted container of the device, this way making sure those files are safe and not accessed by any other person that might get a hold of the USB drive, without knowing the password.

Using the Enforced Encryption functionality gives the administrator the possibility to centrally manage the encrypted devices, by changing user's password, resetting the device, sending messages etc.

Compared to FileVault or BitLocker, the EasyLock encryption application is cross-platform, - so a user can encrypt files on a Mac and decrypt them on a Windows machine.

That was the Enforced Encryption functionality of Endpoint Protector.
Thank you for watching!

How eDiscovery Works?

eDiscovery scans and identifies the confidential information in organizations’ endpoints and allows Administrators to take remediation actions like encrypting or deleting data at rest. It addresses both internal and external threats – unauthorized employees storing sensitive data on their computers and attackers which manage to bypass the network defense and try to get a hold of the company’s records

How Content Aware Protection Works?

Content-aware data loss prevention is a data loss-prevention measure that involves awareness of the context or content that is being protected. This module enables the dynamic application of policy based on the content and context at the time of an operation. These tools are used to address the risk of inadvertent or accidental leaks, or exposure of sensitive enterprise information outside authorised channels, using monitoring, filtering, blocking and remediation features.

How Device Control Works?

See how you can lockdown, control and monitor USB and peripheral ports to stop data theft and data loss. Our Device Control protects against data loss by monitoring and controlling data transfers from PCs to removable storage devices such as USB drives.

User Remediation - Endpoint Protector by CoSoSys

User Remediation is an important new feature that can be applied to your DLP policies in Endpoint Protector 5.4.0.0. If enabled, your users will be able to override the DLP policy, adding a justification for doing so.

Currently available for the Content Aware Protection module, this feature significantly improves the experience for your end-users and reduces the time your admin team spends responding to tickets and requests to bypass a policy restriction.
