Endpoint protection for OmniAccess 3500

Alcatel-Lucent : 21 October, 2008  (New Product)
Nonstop Laptop Guardian from Alcatel-Lucent now incorporates McAfee's Endpoint Encryption for greater levels of mobile computing protection
Alcatel-Lucent has announced a joint solution with McAfee which integrates the Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian (NLG) with McAfee Endpoint Encryption, delivering a powerful mobile security solution for lost and stolen laptops. Alcatel-Lucent has joined the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance to enable smart card pre-boot authentication and "remote kill" capabilities for laptops, thereby assuring data protection and compliance.

The Alcatel-Lucent and McAfee solution offers extensive auditing and reporting capabilities to meet industry and government compliance requirements. Alcatel-Lucent's OmniAccess 3500 NLG enables enterprises to oversee the security on their mobile laptops and the data they contain 24x7, regardless of the power state of the laptop. The Nonstop Laptop Guardian leverages 3G wireless networks - CDMA, HSUPA - allowing enterprises to manage and secure mobile laptops to the same degree as desktop computers are managed and secured today. IT staff can deliver patches or software updates, track location and secure and control data to a laptop at anytime, even when the laptop is turned off. The Nonstop Laptop Guardian solution provides enterprises with improved visibility, reduced risk and increased policy compliance.

"With tens of thousands of laptops lost or stolen each year, it is important that customers have the most advanced solution available to protect their data," said Tom Burns, head of Alcatel-Lucent enterprise activities. "The combination of the Alcatel-Lucent 'always on' OmniAccess 3500 with McAfee's Endpoint Encryption will allow enterprise IT managers to protect lost and stolen laptops thanks to strong encryption with remote capabilities and GPS location for laptop recovery."

The McAfee Endpoint Encryption (formerly SafeBoot Encryption) uses powerful encryption and strong access control to prevent unauthorized access to data. A key feature of the Endpoint Encryption is its full-disk encryption, which ensures that information remains secure on mobile devices. This solution offers a number of additional features, including file and folder encryption, synchronized password changes and centralized management. Endpoint Encryption also includes reporting and auditing capabilities to meet industry and government compliance requirements, helping to reduce the risks associated with a highly mobile workforce. This solution can seamlessly integrate with existing infrastructure allowing a user-friendly solution for customer security.

"The OmniAccess 3500 Nonstop Laptop Guardian provides a new dimension to enhancing the user authentication of McAfee's Data Protection products," said Frank Jorissen, vice president international business development with McAfee's Data Protection Business Unit. "While McAfee already supports the widest range and variety of authentication devices available on the market, this card has truly unique features. The NLG behaves as a remotely controlled 'ignition key' for laptops. When lost or stolen, a remote administrator can wipe critical user keys and force the laptop to reboot to the pre-boot logon screen, keeping all data totally beyond compromise."
