Zone Labs Updates Integrity Security Policy Enforcer

Zone Labs on Monday unveiled a new version of its Integrity endpoint policy enforcement software -- Integrity 5.0 -- that adds additional integration with products from Check Point, which is in the process of acquiring the San Francisco-based security firm.

Integrity 5.0 ensures that endpoint systems -- laptops, desktops, and even mobile devices -- are meeting security policies established by the IT department before access to the network, either from within the firewall or remotely from outside the perimeter, is allowed.

Boasting increased integration with Check Point's popular line of virtual private networking (VPN) access and firewall products, Integrity 5.0 guarantees that only systems meeting security policies can connect remotely via VPN, said Fred Felman, vice president of marketing for Zone Labs.

"Integrity allows administrators to deploy and manage a very flexible set of alternative rules if a client is out of compliance with policies," Felman said. Those rules can be set to, for instance, shut down the client completely if it doesn't meet security specs, redirect the client to a reference system that will automatically download the necessary security patches the client lacks, or require it to connect to a "sandbox" server disconnected from the overall network.

Integrity 5.0 also boasts new certifications with a wide range of 802.1x-enabled devices, including those from Cisco, Microsoft, Aruba, Funk, and Enterasys, said Felman.
