SAN FRANCISCO, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- enSilo, the leader in real-time data protection, today announced it has added new remediation capabilities and application communication control into its prevention of data exfiltration and tampering solution. The move brings to market the industry's first data protection product that combines real-time Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) into one effective security platform.
In its February 2016 Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms report, Gartner Inc. said: "When 44 percent of reference customers for EPP solutions have been successfully compromised, it is clear that the industry is failing in its primary goal: blocking malicious infections." In face of the inefficacy of tools attempting to block malicious infections, enSilo approaches cyber-security differently by assuming that infiltration is inevitable. The company's platform fills the endpoint protection void by preventing in real-time the consequences of attack-related activity, namely data theft and tampering, such as that seen from ransomware.
It's clear that attempting to stop intrusion into networks has failed. Enterprises are increasingly realizing that responding faster than ever is imperative, and as a result the EDR market has nearly doubled in size over the past year. Yet most EDR solutions only have capabilities to detect, identify and respond to attacks—they lack real-time prevention of data theft and tampering. enSilo further establishes itself as the most effective player in the EDR space, by not only blocking data tampering and exfiltration without interfering with employee use of the network, but by also adding new remediation capabilities, such as killing malicious processes or removing files remotely.
As part of its real-time data protection platform, the company also announced today the launch of its Application Communication Control. This new feature means companies can allow employees to run any application on their devices while ensuring that only authorized applications are able to make outbound communications, thus preventing malware from stealing data via these applications. With Application Communication Control, EPP and EDR customers are able to significantly reduce their cyber threat surface through simplified network management of authorized and non-authorized endpoint-originated applications.
"Organizations are being inundated with cybersecurity tools that are costly to maintain and create a bewildering number of alerts. Ironically, these tools don't even stop intruders or prevent data theft in the end. At the same time, organizations believe security tools disrupt normal business operations – from requiring approvals for applications to run to removing infected devices from the network following an attack," says Roy Katmor, enSilo's CEO and co-founder. "Our data protection platform is the first to place a fully-functioning EPP that focuses on preventing the consequences of an attack, together with an EDR solution, all under one umbrella."
Key benefits of enSilo's real-time data protection platform include:
- Real-time Endpoint Protection -- protects the data on the endpoint, without prior knowledge and in real-time, from theft, tampering and ransomware.
- Endpoint Remediation – allows remote remediation while consequence-related activities are contained in real-time.
- Frictionless Security – ensures that enterprise users can continue to work even on compromised endpoints.
- Reduced Threat Surface – allows users to control their endpoint-originated communicating applications.
In May, enSilo was recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in the "Cool Vendors in Digital Workplace Security, 2016" report. enSilo's 2.0 platform was rolled out to existing customers at the end of June. These capabilities are now widely available in the release of the enSilo 2.0 solution.
