DeviceLock, Inc., a worldwide leader in endpoint data leak prevention (DLP) software, today announced that their DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite has been verified as VMware Ready. VMware View users can now protect their virtual endpoints with the leader in endpoint DLP software.
VMware Ready is an end-to-end partner program from VMware (NASDAQ: VMW) that showcases and recommends products demonstrating compatibility with the VMware Solution Exchange. The program allows users to quickly and easily find solutions recommended by VMware that are trusted to enhance VMware offerings. Customers can be confident that the DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite has passed verification tests designed by VMware and can be trusted to work in VMware View environments. These environments would include those deploying a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) model that provides employees secure access to corporate applications and data while using virtually any type of remote personal computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone device connected via VMware View’s Mobile Secure Desktop.
With its Virtual DLP feature, DeviceLock enforces flexible contextual and content-aware filtering controls over data flows between server-hosted virtual applications or desktops and redirected peripheral devices of remote BYOD endpoints. In addition, user network communications from within the terminal session are controlled by the DeviceLock DLP mechanisms. As a result, the isolated corporate environment on the employee’s personal device remains under corporate control, as are all data exchanges between the user’s virtual workspace and their personal device, local peripherals and the network.
“VMware View customers can now benefit from the high level of endpoint protection which DeviceLock DLP Suite has long provided to the physical desktop,” said Vince Schiavo, Chief Executive Officer, DeviceLock. “This VMware Ready verification clearly demonstrates our strategy to provide comprehensive data leak prevention for our customers moving to virtualized endpoint while leveraging their existing investment in VMware solutions.”
DeviceLock 7.2 provides advanced content-aware controls over endpoint data leakage channels from a company’s computers –whether they are laptops, desktops, servers, and now even virtualized endpoints. The Endpoint DLP Suite consists of three software modules - DeviceLock, NetworkLock and ContentLock - that together protect any sized organization from endpoint data leak threats across the widest array of threat vectors. These include:
- Transferring sensitive company data via endpoint-connected iPhones, Androids, BlackBerry, other smart-phones, iPods, iPads, digital cameras, CD/DVD ROM, USB drives, SD, Compact Flash and other forms of removable media
- Transferring company data to cloud-based file sharing solutions such as Dropbox, Google Drive, SkyDrive, RapidShare and iFolder
- Leaking company info from endpoints via social media, Skype, IM, webmail, email or printing
- Data leakage from endpoints via FTP/FTPS, HTTP/HTTPS, and other protocols
“Our mission is to make the DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite the most easily deployed, integrated, scalable and flexible software available on the market for organizations that must protect confidential data from leaking out of their employees’ computers – whether physical or virtual.” said Mr. Schiavo. “Achieving the VMware Ready reflects our company's ongoing dedication to make our endpoint DLP software the very best in its category.” For more information on the DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite and to read the product review in its entirety, please visit www.devicelock.com/products/byod-virtual-dlp.html.
