Endpoint management and security suite from Lumension

Lumension Security : 02 December, 2009  (New Product)
Lumension has combined its security products into one integrated endpoint management and security suite encompassing policy enforcement and patch management
Lumension has unveiled its new Lumension Endpoint Management and Security Suite (LEMSS) that will be delivered as part of the Lumension Endpoint Management Platform and enable organisations to optimise their security and compliance posture while achieving greater agility, performance and reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). Lumension Endpoint Management and Security Suite provides a holistic approach to managing endpoint security through its single, integrated Web console, extensible single agent architecture and comprehensive asset discovery to help organisations harmonise and streamline existing workflows while reducing overall complexity.

The core management and architecture of Lumension Endpoint Management and Security Suite delivers key enhancements across a powerful set of capabilities, including:

* Redesigned and intuitive workflow-based management console for easier, smarter navigation
* Enhanced asset discovery for full network visibility and continuous control
* An extensible single agent architecture with improved, control and deployment
* Advanced implementation support for remote SQL, Windows 2008, and Windows 7

The initial release includes two of the company's leading product modules — Lumension Patch and Remediation and Lumension Security Configuration Management (SCM) with plans to release additional product offerings in 2010.

Newly enhanced Lumension Patch and Remediation reduces corporate risk and optimises IT operations by accurately and proactively eliminating vulnerability risks across all operating systems and applications. Lumension Patch and Remediation additionally delivers operational capabilities targeted at reducing the complexity and cost of endpoint management, including power policy management, software deployment and removal, desktop configuration templates and custom task scripting support. In addition, Lumension Endpoint Management and Security Suite key capabilities delivered in Lumension Patch and Remediation will include:

* A single, intuitive management console for easy patch and remediation administration across multiple platforms, including Windows, Unix, Linux and Mac OS, as well as many other applications.
* Visibility and control of both physical and virtual environments with effective management at a significantly reduced TCO.
* Automated policy baselines to ensure that patches, configurations, remediations, and other custom and repetitive tasks are continuously and automatically enforced.
* Policy enforcement to reduce desktop and system power consumption.
* Integration with Network Access Control (NAC) solutions to remediate 'non-compliant' machines to a compliant state before granting access to the corporate network.

Lumension Security Configuration ManagementLumension Security Configuration Management ensures that endpoints are securely configured and in compliance with industry best practices and regulatory mandates. Lumension SCM provides continuous assessment of policy templates including Microsoft Windows Security Guides, NIST Special Publication 800-68, Defence Information Systems Agency (DISA) Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG), National Security Agency (NSA) and Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Federal Desktop Core Configurations (FDCC).

"According to a recent Worldwide State of the Endpoint Survey 2010 by the Ponemon Institute, three of the IT security risks for 2010 were insider risks, insufficient budget resources and increasing complexity due to the lack of integration between endpoint operations and security technologies," said Mike Wittig, president and CTO of Lumension. "In the face of increasing pressure to drive efficiency, security and optimisation, organisations are responding by adding on technologies to solve new threats and compliance issues. This proliferation of technologies continues to further increase technical complexity and costs."

"Lumension's charter is to provide a unique approach to endpoint management and security by unifying operations and security tools under a single architecture to help organisations manage IT risks, optimise security and compliance posture, and reduce complexity and costs."

Lumension Endpoint Management Platform provides a flexible and scalable architecture that allows organisations to achieve lower TCO, greater agility and enhanced security and compliance posture through consolidation, optimisation and automation. This new platform will deliver the following:

* Trust-Centric Model for Comprehensive Endpoint Protection
* Scalable, Single Agent Architecture Provides Agility and Efficiency
* Enhanced Operations and Assurance via Unified Relational Content and Integrity Services
* Lumension Endpoint Management and Security Suite for Reduced TCO and Complexity

Lumension is planning on delivering upgrade options to existing customers beginning in Q1 2010. For more information, please visit the Lumension Endpoint Management Security Suite.
