Lumension® Endpoint Management and Security Suite
Delivered through the Lumension® Endpoint Management and Security Suite, Lumension® Intelligent Whitelisting™ is the industry's first application control / whitelisting solution that increases endpoint security effectiveness without impacting business productivity. Lumension® Intelligent Whitelisting reduces the operational headaches associated with traditional stand-alone application control / whitelisting products, and delivers the flexibility and ease-of-use that IT needs to regain control of their endpoints.
Organizations today are facing more sophisticated, targeted threats that leverage multiple attack vectors including zero-day and 3rd party application vulnerabilities, physical access through data ports and web-based attacks through the browser. Attacks such as these "Advanced Persistent Threats" (APTs) are constantly evolving to methodically deliver custom-developed malware payloads that traditional anti-virus cannot proactively defend against. In addition, Web-enabled technologies and the social business, cloud-based environment have introduced new IT risks through plug-ins, add-ons and application extensions. This risk is compounded by users with local admin accounts who inadvertently expose their PCs to vulnerabilities by installing applications for both personal and social use.
Not only are attacks becoming more targeted and sophisticated, but the sheer volume of new malware signatures is growing at rates that out-pace the scalability of traditional technologies. Today more than 2 million new malware signatures are identified each and every month1, but anti-virus solutions, on average, only identify about 19 percent of these within the first day of existence. As a result, the typical organization must now deal with upwards of 50 malware incidents every month, leading to rapid increases in endpoint TCO with rising help desk calls and reimaging costs, and lost employee and IT productivity.
Endpoint TCO Increasing Due to Malware
To address the rising volume and sophistication of malware, organizations have added numerous point products to their security stack – an approach that has quickly become cumbersome and ineffective. This approach not only adds complexity to managing and securing endpoints, but it reduces overall visibility of the environment, leading to more IT risk and increased endpoint TCO. The time is now to shift out of the status quo and into a new strategy for endpoint management and security.
Lumension® Intelligent Whitelisting™ enables your organization to:
Increase Endpoint Security Effectiveness through a robust, defense-in-depth security approach centered around application control, which eliminates un-trusted or unwanted change to endpoints and allows only trusted and known executable files to run.
Enjoy Flexible, Effective and Easy-To-Use Application Control / Whitelisting. Lumension has reengineered application control technology to overcome the traditional challenges associated with standalone point products. Unlike traditional application control products, Lumension's integrated Intelligent Whitelisting solution provides increased flexibility by enabling IT to effectively and efficiently manage change within a dynamic endpoint environment while still maintaining effective endpoint security. Software Demo: Simplifying Whitelist Creation
Enhance Visibility within the Endpoint Environment. Now IT can gain unparalleled visibility into all applications running within the endpoint environment, and identify what machines have the latest AV definitions and patches installed - regardless if those machines are online or offline.
Regain Control of Endpoints by reducing Local Admin risk. End users with Local Admin rights can introduce untold levels of risk on the endpoint and leave holes for zero-day and other malware to exploit. Gain visibility and control over cloud-delivered applications that can install without user access privileges. Eliminate known Operating System and 3rd Party Application Vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by streamlining and automating the discovery, assessment and deployment of critical patches to both online and offline endpoints.
Improve Organizational Productivity by eliminating the number of malware incidents and software conflicts that cause unplanned network downtime and increased IT burden.
Reduce Your Endpoint TCO with fewer malware-driven IT help desk calls, incident responses, and machines to reimage, and improved network performance and employee productivity.
Streamline Compliance and Reporting to simplify management and reporting across all endpoints and reducing the overall IT compliance burden.
