Endpoint Protector 5

Server Version: 5.1.0.0

Due to the improvements included in this release, it is highly recommended that the Endpoint Protector Server and the Endpoint Protector Client versions are properly correlated!

Improvements:

  • To give the Administrator a better overview on the users, additional information like Employee ID, Computer ID, Team, etc. can now be saved, displayed and used in search filters. These can be filled in either directly by each user through the Endpoint Protector Client or by the Administrator, from the Endpoint Protector UI.
  • In addition to the standard Device Control Rights, the administrator can create fallback policies for Outside Network and Outside Hours circumstances.
  • The Offline Temporary Password section has been improved and provides an enhanced experience for both the users and the Administrator. Changes range from more information in the automatic emails that provide a more seamless process to UI changes to both the Server and the Client. The section has been completely redesigned and additional changes also include:
    • The Universal Offline Temporary Password is now available and offers access rights in isolated networks or, in circumstances when quick access is required and the Administrator is not available.
    • The authorization of an Offline Temporary Password can now be restricted also to a specific user or to a user and computer combination, making it more restrictive (or permissive).
