DeviceLock« 6.2.1 just released!

SmartLine Inc, a worldwide leader in endpoint device control security, today announced the availability of DeviceLock« version 6.2.1.

What's New in DeviceLock« 6.2.1 (versus 6.2):

  • Added support for Microsoft Windows Vista. Now DeviceLock« Service and management consoles can be installed and used on Windows Vista. DeviceLock« Service natively supports both platforms: 32-bit and 64-bit. DeviceLock« management consoles are available only as 32-bit applications and can be used on 64-bit platforms in the emulation mode.

  • To control Windows Mobile devices on Windows Vista, DeviceLock« now supports Windows Mobile Device Center (WMDC).

  • Added integration with TrueCrypt. TrueCrypt is free open-source disk encryption software. DeviceLock« detects encrypted TrueCrypt disks (USB Flash Drives and other removable media) and applies special "encrypted" permissions to them. Using these "encrypted" permissions you can, for example, allow writing only to encrypted removable devices and deny writing to unencrypted media.

  • Added real-time monitoring of DeviceLock« Services across the network. DeviceLock« Enterprise Server can now monitor remote computers in real-time, checking DeviceLock« Service status (running or not), policy consistency and integrity. The detailed information is written to the Monitoring log. Also, it is possible to define a master policy that can be automatically applied across selected remote computers in the event that their current policies are suspected to be out-of-date or damaged.

  • Now in DeviceLock« management consoles it is possible to create a custom MSI package for DeviceLock« Service. This feature allows administrators to create their own MSI packages and deploy DeviceLock« Service instances across the network with predefined policies.

  • DeviceLock« Service now adds itself to the exception list of Windows Firewall on Windows XP/Server 2003/Vista.

  • DeviceLock« Enterprise Server can now extract files from shadowed CD/DVD images. When the "Unpack ISO images" parameter is enabled, all files are extracted from CD/DVD images upon delivery to the server and stored in the database separately (one record per file).

  • Improved the data post-processing of CD/DVD burner shadowed files.

  • Now DeviceLock« Service and DeviceLock« Enterprise Server are set to use specific TCP ports. These are 9132 and 9133 thereafter. If these ports are unavailable on the local computer, then other ports will be allocated dynamically.
