NEEDHAM, Mass., June 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Promisec, a pioneer in Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), today announced Promisec Integrity to address challenges of securing today's increasingly mobile workforce. Promisec Integrity expands Promisec's independent enforcement of IT policy, vulnerability detection, and high-priority patching to include coverage of off-network endpoints. Delivered through a flexible hybrid architecture, Promisec Integrity combines the benefits of cloud and on-premise deployment and strengths of agentless and agent-based inspections.
"As today's threat landscape becomes more complex, enterprises need to address high risk security issues and IT policy gaps before they can be exploited. The threat surface has widened with the increase of mobile and homeworking practices," said Dan Ross, CEO of Promisec. "Particularly problematic are the endpoints that spend significant time outside the network only to return periodically into the network, at which point any compromise to the endpoint while outside of network may now have a pathway to rest of the network."
"We're excited to announce our new Cloud offering 'Integrity', which gives companies the ability to address the emerging security and compliance challenges presented with Mobile and off-network devices," added Mr. Ross.
To address this challenge, Promisec Integrity implements a new agent based capability to maintain visibility to endpoints even when they leave the corporate network. This new agent based visibility and control complements the leading agentless capabilities that Promisec has been delivering for years. Promisec Integrity continuously collects information from its deployed agents and its agentless inspection engine to populate a single dashboard for a holistic view of all managed endpoints—whether in or outside the corporate network.
Integrity's key functions include predefined inspections, which allow the customer to choose from a range of inspections that can quickly identify the highest priority endpoint security and IT compliance risks. The range of predefined inspections include vulnerability detection, unauthorized applications discovery, Windows patch validation, Windows OS end-of-support detection, and antivirus protection validation, and agent validation. Enterprises that need customization can utilize the user defined inspection function to inspect endpoints for risks unique to their environments. Integrity's high-priority patching deploys the latest patches to applications that are frequently targeted by cyber attacks, and scheduling allows enterprises to customize the frequency and timing of inspections. With dashboard view, customers receive high-level summaries of the latest status of their endpoint environment.
Blurring the historical bright lines between on-premise vs. cloud, agentless vs. agent, Promisec Integrity leverages the best of all of these to deliver a deployment model that best fits customers' existing configuration and endpoint risk profile. This hybrid architecture combines sensitivity security with convenience that cloud solutions provide. You can have it all.
Promisec is a pioneer in endpoint visibility and remediation and a leader in the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) market defined by Gartner, empowering organizations to avoid threats and disarm attacks that can lead to unwanted headlines and penalties. Promisec's patented, agentless technology assures users that their endpoints are secure, audits are clean, regulations are met and vulnerabilities are addressed proactively to ensure the integrity of enterprise IT. More globally recognized companies trust in Promisec to stay secure, compliant and operationally efficient. Visit www.promisec.com for more information.
