Pointsec Expands Portfolio

Pointsec Mobile Technologies’ new Device Protector solution extends its enterprise data protection to include complete port and storage device management, effectively preventing sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands.

“The risk of data loss through unprotected ports and plug and play storage devices is a serious concern among all organizations in possession of confidential data,” said Erik Johannisson, CTO at Pointsec.

Pointsec Device Protector protects both removable storage media and email in transit by providing automatic real-time encryption. Users will now be able to control their employees’ use of personal removable media devices such as Bluetooth smartphones, USB drives, digital cameras and music players, that have wired or wireless connections to their PCs.

The product effectively prevents or limits data transfers to these devices through a configurable security policy and content filtering to ensure that corporate IT infrastructure cannot be used for illegal distribution of copyrighted content or installation of malicious software.
