SAN DIEGO, July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ESET®, a global pioneer in IT security for more than two decades, today announced the launch of ESET Remote Administrator (ERA) Virtual Machine® for Microsoft Azure. The product enables IT administrators to drill-down into endpoint security environments at any time, allowing for ongoing security management and quick problem remediation.
Every second is critical amidst a cybersecurity incident such as a data breach, making the ability to remediate risks quickly and easily paramount to a business's success. The availability of ERA Virtual Machine for Azure expands the options for businesses who want to manage their ESET security solutions from the cloud, regardless if the devices they manage are also in the cloud or on-premises. Physical and virtual desktops and servers can be managed easily, regardless of if it's a Windows, Mac or Linux OS, or an Android or iOS mobile device.
"Addressing the real-life problems of security administrators at small companies or large enterprises has always been a priority at ESET," said Gerald Choung, vice president of sales and marketing at ESET North America. "ERA for Microsoft Azure streamlines security management for businesses of all sizes, saving precious time and resources for IT professionals."
Deploying ESET Remote Administrator in the cloud delivers a solution that is easy to manage and doesn't demand additional resources. It delivers full visibility and control 24/7 even in the event of on-premises downtime or server crashes, which in turn minimizes risk, enhances compliance and shortens remediation times. By providing the pre-configured virtual machine with ERA Virtual Machine for Azure, ERA is available for virtually anyone with internet access. For small- to medium-sized businesses, the product represents a cost-effective alternative to on-site ERA deployment.
As seen with previous versions of ERA, this platform-independent, remote management console has been built to provide superior usability, improve security, and lower the overall cost of implementation and management. It boasts a built-in task management system to minimize downtime, while enabling actions to be performed automatically based on dynamic group membership, even when endpoints are offline and not connected to ERA.
"In today's security landscape, it's extremely important that businesses have robust security solutions that are easy to access and manage," said Tim Rains, director, security, Microsoft Corp. "Microsoft Azure provides the benefits of cloud scale, agility and reliability for businesses who want to manage their ESET security solutions from the cloud with ERA Virtual Machine.
The availability of ERA Virtual Machine for Microsoft Azure is an exciting addition for businesses looking for comprehensive, user-friendly security solutions."
