Updates to application control, usability, DriveLock Operations Center, Microsoft BitLocker, EDR and much more
DriveLock, a leading global provider of IT and data security solutions, today announced its new Release 2019.2 with a wide range of extensions and enhancements. The new additions include optimized malware defense functions, a new DriveLock Pre-Boot Authentication (PBA) for BitLocker, and BitLocker To Go for the mandatory encryption of external USB storage media.
Additional enhancements facilitate the creation of security awareness campaigns; provide more transparency and control over user devices via Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR); and deliver a range of innovative and user-friendly administrative and visualization options within the DriveLock Operations Center (DOC). For the first time, the Release 2019.2 combines the various elements of data protection and endpoint protection along with endpoint detection and response.
“We’ve added some significant extra developments to our product, especially in the areas of encryption and security,” says Anton Kreuzer, CEO of DriveLock. “Our vision is a fully-integrated, zero-trust platform that works in accordance with the principle ‘never trust, always verify’. Our new Version 2019.2 also includes enhancements to application and interface control. In addition, it extends Microsoft BitLocker management with SSO as well as EDR, and that’s crucial to the identification of ongoing attacks.”
DriveLock Operations Center – extended for cloud and on-premise
Version 2019.2 includes the extended DriveLock Operations Center (DOC), which is also available to on-premise customers. The modern, web-based interface provides multiple options for the administration and visualisation of all of the hardware, software, licenses, permissions and activities in the corporate network. The range of views and dashboards for security awareness, application control and BitLocker are ready for use immediately and provide security professionals with all the widgets they need. That way, they always have up-to-date information about the current state of their environment.
The new version also enables them to carry out centralized and simplified management tasks. For example, security teams can visualize group memberships in the EDR view, assign new groups to a computer, and control or manage group-specific policies. They can also create various security alerts sorted by priority, category and degree of severity. This is another way they can constantly monitor all the endpoints in the company.
With the Release 2019.2, DriveLock has also updated its Managed Security Services so that customers who have opted for a cloud solution also benefit from all their functions.
