DeviceLock, Inc., an international leader in endpoint data leak prevention (DLP) software, today announced that its DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite has renewed its verification as Citrix Ready®. The Citrix Ready program helps customers identify third-party solutions that are recommended to enhance virtualization, networking and cloud computing solutions from Citrix Systems, Inc.
DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite once again completed a rigorous verification process to ensure compatibility with the latest version of Citrix XenApp® and XenDesktop® products that are unified under the FlexCast® Management Architecture to ensure joint solution compatibility.
Citrix users can be confident that DeviceLock DLP is trusted to provide data leak prevention for virtual endpoints and applications in Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop environments. These environments implement various types of “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) initiatives for securing employee access to corporate applications and data while utilizing any kind of remote personal computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone device connected via Citrix Receiver.
“Since 2012, when DeviceLock DLP was originally verified as Citrix Ready, our company has been providing Citrix customers the same effective data leak prevention for their virtual endpoints that DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite has offered to physical desktops,” said Ashot Oganesyan, DeviceLock CTO and Founder. “The renewed Citrix Ready verification demonstrates our long-term commitment to deliver the best endpoint DLP solution to our customers at the virtualized desktop (VDI/DaaS) and application levels.”
DeviceLock’s Virtual DLP features extend the reach of DeviceLock data leak prevention capabilities to a variety of virtual computing solutions and use-cases. These include shared application sessions, hosted shared/VDI desktops, streamed desktops (Desktop as a Service-DaaS), as well as local virtual machines on hypervisors.
Virtual DLP enforces flexible contextual and content controls over data flows between server-hosted shared application/desktop sessions and redirected peripheral devices, ports, and the clipboard of remote terminals and BYOD devices. It is important to note that strict content-aware controls can be applied to the shared redirected clipboard operations and difficult to secure “mapped drives” while the context and content of network communications from within the user session are monitored and filtered by DeviceLock DLP mechanisms. As a result, data transfers from the virtual corporate environment on the employee’s personal device remain under strict corporate control while in session, as are data exchanges between the business workspace and the native OS, applications, and peripherals on the typically unmanaged device.
“The DeviceLock DLP differentiation for Citrix-based virtualized environments,” pointed out Oganesyan, “is based on its ability to protect not only endpoints in all FlexCast desktop virtualization models but also in multi-user XenApp application sessions with individual DLP policies independently enforced for every user in a session. Ask your internal virtualization expert about the difficulty in securing ‘mapped drive’ communications while in session, and DeviceLock DLP’s uniqueness stands out.”
The DeviceLock Endpoint DLP solution addresses the needs of organizations that require a simple and affordable approach to preventing data leaks from corporate Windows and Mac laptops, desktop computers, and virtualized Windows desktops and applications. DeviceLock DLP implements and effectively coordinates a full-featured set of contextual and content-aware controls over data-in-use, data-in-motion, and data-at-rest that is designed specifically for preventing information leaks from endpoints without unnecessarily interrupting normal business processes. The DeviceLock DLP solution is designed to effortlessly scale from small to large installations and to simplify DLP deployment and management such that it can usually be performed by in-house Windows administrators using the Microsoft Active Directory’s Group Policy Management Console or DeviceLock’s companion consoles. The complete package delivers an unprecedented level of functionality among endpoint DLP solutions in an easily affordable price range.
