Endpoint Protector 5

Server Version: 5.2.0.0

Improvements:

  • Contextual Detection is now available as a general feature for both the Content Aware Protection and eDiscovery modules. It offers an advanced way of inspecting confidential data based on both content and context. It can be configured from the System Parameters > Contextual Detection section.
    • In addition to the Predefined Content, it can also take into account the Proximity to Dictionary keywords or Regular Expressions, as well as various Thresholds.
    • For more advanced users, these settings can be defined manually (making this feature even more complex and powerful).
  • Detection of Programming Files has been greatly improved, using machine learning and n-gram detection. As a consequence, a new Source Code tab has been created inside the Policies section.
  • The Transfer Limit functionality has been extended, offering extra actions:
    • Lockdown: a restrictive action, blocking any connected device and disabling network cards, preventing any type of data transfer
    • Report Only: a permissive action that simply informs when the limit has been reached
  • Repositories for File Shadows are now available. They can be configured per Departments, helping with cross-border regulations as well as maintaining performance of the Endpoint Protector Server.
  • File Location Blacklists and Whitelists are now also available for Linux.
  • The lists containing multiple entities (e.g.: Policies, Groups, etc.) have been improved, making management of this section smoother. One visible aspect would be the infinite scrolling for the related sections.
  • The Credit Card masking in Reports and Analysis has been changed to match the newer banking criteria.
