SAN FRANCISCO -- GuardianEdge Technologies Inc., a leading provider of data protection software for government and enterprise organizations, today announced the GuardianEdge Data Protection Platform, the first enterprise-class solution for managing the protection of information on endpoint devices. This Data Protection Platform is comprised of the GuardianEdge Data Protection Framework, which provides the required security and management services on a scalable client server infrastructure, and three core data protection applications: GuardianEdge Hard Disk Encryption, GuardianEdge Removable Storage Encryption and GuardianEdge Device Control. With the introduction of the GuardianEdge Data Protection Platform, IT administrators now have a common set of security and management services for deploying, monitoring and managing multiple endpoint data protection solutions.
Some security research suggests that more than one-third of data breaches reported worldwide were caused by the loss or theft of a laptop computer. Often overlooked, endpoint devices can be an Achilles heel in enterprise IT security, said Jon Oltsik, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. In the past, ease of management proved to be a barrier to entry for companies looking to deploy solutions to protect information on laptop computers, desktop computers, tablet PCs and removable storage devices. The GuardianEdge Data Protection Platform can help enterprises to cut the costs associated with the management of solutions from different vendors while providing a framework for a complete endpoint data security infrastructure.
The GuardianEdge Data Protection Platform minimizes the costs of administration and support, and reduces the potential for data security gaps through the alignment and integration of data protection policies. Whether machines are lost or stolen, or unauthorized individuals attempt to compromise data through malicious activity, the platform ensures that the organizations critical information is secure.
The platform relies on the GuardianEdge Data Protection Framework to enable enterprise-grade security and management services including user registration and management, policy administration, client audit and reporting, and data/encryption key recovery. Organizations can use their existing directory services infrastructure to manage user profiles, encrypted computers, encryption keys and other application-specific data, without the need to make changes to the directory schema. The Data Protection Framework eliminates the overlap and redundancy that can result from building this infrastructure around multiple uncorrelated data protection applications. This approach enables administrators to have the control and visibility necessary to administer data protection.
