Anti-virus and anti-spyware is integrated into real-time data protection software release

FutureSoft : 17 March, 2009  (New Product)
FutureSoft releases DynaComm PointGuard v8.0 incorporating anti-virus and anti-spyware to provide total real-time protection against data theft, loss and unauthorised access.
The latest version of FutureSoft's flagship solution now includes an anti-virus element to complement the existing anti-spyware component. With the extra defences, DynaComm PointGuard provides a full 360-degree view of a corporation's network and endpoint security. Additionally, a new set of reports has been added to focus on spyware/virus activity and an updated interface allows more flexible access to the new report functions.

"DynaComm PointGuard's unique combination of real-time event reporting and logging, coupled with extensive and customisable management reporting ensures complete visibility to security events and policy enforcement, 24/7, tracking and logging who has access to sensitive data," explained Tim Farrell, FutureSoft's CEO and co-founder. "Even remote systems, such as on-the-road laptops, can continue to be monitored and secured, even when they are no longer connected to the network."

Critical data asset protection is, therefore, possible without over-burdening IT administrators or reducing business flexibility. In addition to its powerful endpoint security management capabilities, DynaComm PointGuard provides system administrators with a centralised, easy to use application lockdown solution that increases security and reduces cost. The database now has a smaller footprint and the update process is even more efficient for the servers as well as the users.

Now powered by Sunbelt Software's award-winning Threat database and Vipre Enterprise engine, DynaComm PointGuard also provides centralised, simple-to-manage anti-spyware and anti-virus solutions as part of its endpoint security management suite. Its pro-active cleaning technology combines simple, central management of cleaning and quarantining, with powerful threat recognition and removal. Again, even remote systems and laptops used outside of a network remain protected and are capable of automatically connecting and updating themselves as soon as they have access to the Internet.

PointGuard's granularity, therefore, enables IT managers to control access to files, applications and removable devices without harming business flexibility. Detailed reports provide a view into corporate file and device use and may signal a need for a more in-depth analysis of selected resources. Real-time system event alerts protect critical infrastructures by enabling system administrators to quickly identify down-time or other problems within the network.

The inclusion of anti-virus and anti-spyware solutions now creates a fully comprehensive solution for managing, monitoring and securing IT systems. PointGuard 8.0 now provides:

* File policy management - provide access rights and log and monitor files
* Active Registry Protection policies
* Removable device management policies
* Windows Event log monitoring policies
* File scans
* Registry scans
* System scans
* Spyware/Virus Protection policies

"This latest version of PointGuard truly provides a comprehensive, 360-degree view of a corporation's system network and endpoint security," concluded Farrell. "Organisations of all kinds, from governmental bodies down to doctor's offices can now maintain total visibility across their network, ensuring corporate assets are protected and that managers and administrators have a clear view of security issues."
