DeviceLock’s Windows 7 endpoint security protection
DeviceLock announced support for Windows 7. Delivering context-aware data leak prevention capabilities, the latest release of DeviceLock software version 6.4.1, can be installed on all Windows 7 desktops, laptops and servers for immediate protection from insider-originated data breaches.
The software enables customers to precisely control, log, shadow-copy and audit end-user access to all types of local ports and peripheral devices on corporate endpoint computers, including USB, FireWire, LPT, COM, IrDA, Removable, HDD, Floppy, DVD/CD-ROM, Tape, Modem, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and more.
Featuring local synchronization filtering technology, DeviceLock gives security administrators the ability to centrally control which types of data specified users or their groups are allowed to synchronize between corporate computers and locally connected mobile devices including Windows Mobile, Palm and, now with the release of v6.4.1, iPhone smartphones. Version 6.4.1 also adds phase-one BlackBerry device type support that includes device presence detection, access controls, and event logging.
For Windows ActiveSync, Windows Mobile Device Center, HotSync and iTunes protocols, the software can recognize and filter numerous data object types. Time-based or schedule-based policies as well as data flow directional control can also be enforced for local synchronizations to allow corporate security policies to be more flexible, precise, and dynamic.
DeviceLock also puts local and network printing under the strict control of IT security administration. By intercepting, filtering and tracing print spooler operations, DeviceLock enables centralized specification and local enforcement of user access privileges to any local, network, or virtual printers regardless of how they are connected to the computer, including any non-USB connections.
It supports true file type detection and filtering. This function works by intercepting any file system’s read/write operations with peripheral devices, performing real-time analysis of the entire binary content of transmitted data, and enforcing applicable file-type-based security policies.
It also integrates with leading encryption products from PGP, Lexar, SecurStar, and TrueCrypt in order to protect data exported to removable storage devices. In addition, DeviceLock blocks operations of USB and PS/2 hardware keyloggers.
New in DeviceLock 6.4.1 is an optional add-on component for full-text search in the DeviceLock Search Server (DLSS). DLSS is aimed at making the labor-intensive processes of information security compliance auditing, incident investigations, and forensic analysis more precise, convenient and time-efficient.
