At RSA Conference 2016 in San Francisco, CoSoSys released Endpoint Protector DLP for Linux in Private Beta, enabling protection against data leakages for confidential data on organization’s Linux workstations.
“With a number of sectors including education, government, nuclear and aviation, relying extensively on Linux, we are pleased to announce Endpoint Protector DLP for Linux,” said Roman Foeckl, CoSoSys CEO. “By continuing our work to support enterprises with mixed environments, we are able to empower organizations to protect sensitive data regardless the platform.”
Endpoint Protector already runs on Linux distributions like Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, RedHat and CentOS with device control features to block the use of specific portable storage devices and prevent data loss and data theft. With the recently announcement Endpoint Protector 18.104.22.168, the content-aware DLP module is also available for Linux.
The features include content filtering based on file type, predefined content (PII, credit card numbers, social security numbers, and others), and custom content with dictionaries of keywords and regular expressions.
With Endpoint Protector DLP for Linux, IT administrators are now able to constantly track user data transfers to portable storage devices and the cloud as well as block certain file transfers. Based on comprehensive reports provided by the solution, organizations can detect data security incidents as they happen.
The intuitive management console enables the easy implementation of the DLP policies on Linux workstations, as well as on Windows and Mac OS X, completing the data security systems.
Endpoint Protector 4 DLP for Linux runs on Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, CentOS, and RedHat distributions and it is available with server version 22.214.171.124. Since it is released in Private Beta, the client software can be requested here.
