Provider of Security Policy Management Expands Enforcement Platform to Third Party Products and Wireless Access
Fremont, CALIF. – December 4, 2001 – Sygate Technologies today announced the release of Sygate Secure Enterprise (SSE) 2.2. With this new version, Sygate extends its security protection with new Host IntegrityÃ¢â€ž? and Wireless EnforcerÃ¢â€ž? features. Security administrators can now use Sygate’s trusted solution to enforce required protection and security settings across previously unchecked elements of the network.
“These product enhancements are the result of collaborative relationships with our Fortune 500 customers,” said Babak Salimi, Product Director for Sygate Technologies. “They recognized that the power of the Sygate Secure Enterprise policy enforcement platform could be applied to other measures like anti-virus, reducing the overall operations and administration costs of protection.”
Sygate’s new Host IntegrityÃ¢â€ž? feature offers policy enforcement of third party point solutions. SSE 2.2 employs Host Integrity to enforce anti-virus protection, the first of a series of products to be managed by Sygate’s enterprise solution. Sygate Wireless EnforcerÃ¢â€ž? is an important extension of Sygate protection as the inclusion of wireless devices in the business community becomes more prevalent. The Wireless Enforcer blocks wireless access to corporate networks if the security agent engine is not active, is absent, is not current or has been tampered with.
“The network tether is being stretched to new places, while at the same time the power at the endpoint has become awesome. The result is that exposure of corporate information is at an all time high. The platform expansion in SSE 2.2 significantly increases the network independent control that administrators have over their security policies,” explained John DeSantis, CEO of Sygate Technologies. “With this new release, Sygate continues to deliver the most comprehensive security policy enforcement solution for enterprise protection.”
