DeviceLock, Inc., an international leader in endpoint data leak prevention software solutions, announced today the general availability release of DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite version 7.3 that extends the reach of DeviceLock data leak prevention solutions to Apple computers. The new version delivers essential device control capabilities for corporate endpoints with Apple’s OS X Lion and OS X Mountain Lion operating systems while simultaneously allowing organizations to unify DLP policy management for both Windows and Mac computers in the most simple and scalable way – natively from the Microsoft Active Directory’s Group Policy Management Console via the DeviceLock custom snap-in.
“The consumerization of corporate IT has led to accelerating Apple’s endpoint platform proliferation in the enterprise. Most often, Mac computers are used in organizations by executive managers and key specialists – exactly those categories of employees that create, process and store the most valuable and sensitive part of corporate data on their endpoints,” noted Ashot Oganesyan, DeviceLock CTO and Founder. “The newly released DeviceLock version is aimed at helping our customers to prevent the leakage of these valuable data from their Mac computers – in addition to already protected Windows PCs. Of great convenience is that DLP policies for both Mac and Windows endpoints can be uniformly managed via Active Directory Group Policies – a de-facto industry standard familiar to any system administrator.”
The DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite addresses the needs of organizations that require a simple and affordable approach to preventing data leaks from users’ Windows and Mac laptops, desktop computers, or virtual Windows sessions. The DeviceLock DLP solution is designed to effortlessly scale from small to large installations and 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. DeviceLock also supports LDAP, workgroup, virtual, and standalone Windows endpoint implementations.
DeviceLock administrators can dynamically manage distributed agents that enforce centrally defined policies that allow, block, and log data flows, as well as send real-time alerts on critical security-related events to administrators and external Security Event and Information Management (SIEM) systems.
In the same effective way that DeviceLock for Windows integrates with the Microsoft’s native data encryption solution for removable drives– BitLocker To Go, DeviceLock for the Mac integrates with Apple’s native FileVault encryption for removable media. DeviceLock customers can use Apple’s data encryption technology with DeviceLock on their Mac computers at no additional cost, which provides both functional advantages and cost savings.
The complete package delivers an unprecedented level of functionality among endpoint DLP solutions in the same, easily affordable price range.
