PGP Corporation today announced general availability of PGP Endpoint, a centrally managed data loss prevention solution that provides integrated data encryption and device policy enforcement for all removable storage devices and mobile data connection technologies to protect laptops, desktops, mobile devices and ports.Ã‚Â
This enables administrators to reduce operational costs and IT resources.Ã‚Â Extending the award-winning PGP Encryption Platform, PGP Endpoint mitigates an enterprise’s risk and reduces operational costs and IT resources by protecting all types of data storage across the corporation, enabling companies to enforce security policies and maintain compliance.
As an extension of the PGP Encryption Platform, PGP Endpoint provides enterprises with another layer of security by offering an integrated encryption approach for a broader set of applications and devices.Ã‚Â PGP Endpoint provides built-in security that protects data by transparently detecting, allowing or disallowing, and if required encrypting, removable storage devices and portable device connections.
With PGP Endpoint, administrators can easily establish and enforce policies for device usage via USB, FireWire, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections.Ã‚Â Administrators can also specify and allow only authorized use of devices and sharing of encrypted data.Ã‚Â PGP Endpoint requires no change to the user experience and uses centralized policy management by enforcing consistent encryption and “whitelist” policies by leveraging existing infrastructure.
Additionally, PGP Endpoint enables administrators to review device usage logs and establish policies to monitor the content of data transferred/exchanged to and from the device.
