DeviceLock Extends DLP Solution to Mac OS X

DeviceLock, a provider of data leak prevention (DLP) software for endpoints, today today released DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite version 7.3, a new version that extends support to Mac OS X-based computers.

DeviceLock, a provider of data leak prevention (DLP) software for endpoints, today today released DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite version 7.3, a new version that extends support to Mac OS X-based computers.

According to the company, the new version delivers device control capabilities for corporate endpoints running Apple’s OS X Lion and OS X Mountain Lion while simultaneously allowing organizations to unify DLP policy management for both Windows and Mac computers from the Microsoft Active Directory’s Group Policy Management Console via the DeviceLock custom snap-in.

“The consumerization of corporate IT has led to accelerating Apple’s endpoint platform proliferation in the enterprise. Most often, Mac computers are used in organizations by executive managers and key specialists — exactly those categories of employees that create, process and store the most valuable and sensitive part of corporate data on their endpoints,” Ashot Oganesyan, DeviceLock CTO and Founder said in a statement.

DeviceLock said its solution addresses the needs of organizations that need a simple and affordable approach to preventing data leaks from users’ Windows and Mac laptops, desktop computers, or virtual Windows sessions.

DeviceLock’s DLP solution is designed to scale from small to large installations and simplify DLP deployment and management such that it can usually be performed by in-house Windows administrators using the Microsoft Active Directory’s Group Policy Management Console or DeviceLock’s companion consoles.

DeviceLock also supports LDAP, workgroup, virtual, and standalone Windows endpoint implementations, the company said.

Additionally, DeviceLock administrators can dynamically manage distributed agents that enforce centrally defined policies that allow, block, and log data flows, as well as send real-time alerts on critical security-related events to administrators and external Security Event and Information Management (SIEM) systems.

Similar to how DeviceLock for Windows integrates with Microsoft’s BitLocker To Go, DeviceLock for the Mac integrates with Apple’s native FileVault encryption for removable media. DeviceLock customers can use Apple’s data encryption technology with DeviceLock on their Mac computers at no additional cost, which provides both functional advantages and cost savings, the company said.

Based in San Ramon, California, DeviceLock says it protects more than 5 million endpoints across its customer base of more than 70,000 organizations.
