Lumension Achieves Success in Whitelisting and Application Control

Lumension Security : 06 December, 2010  (Company News)
IT Security experts discuss their role in reducing IT energy consumption whilst improving security through whitelisting and endpoint application control
Despite a challenging economic environment, Lumension has announced several successes, including key industry accolades, a nod of approval for reduced IT energy consumption, and continued leadership in the advancing technology of application whitelisting.

Growing Industry Accolades

* Deloitte Technology Fast 500: Lumension was ranked 467 on the 2010 Deloitte Technology Fast 500, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology companies in the United States and Canada.
* Software 500: Lumension ranked 247 in the 2010 Software 500, a ranking of the world's largest software companies, up from 261 in 2009 and 282 in 2008.
* Inc 5,000: As a result of the company's strong revenue growth, Lumension ranked 2,283 in Inc's 2010 ranking of the fastest growing private companies in the US; ranked number 152 in the top software companies, and was one of 6 Arizona companies to make the list.
* Forrester Wave: Earlier this year, Lumension was named a leader in vulnerability management for having the strongest strategy/vision due to the company's portfolio of endpoint remediation products.

By adding enhanced Power Management capabilities with distributed Wake-On-LAN as core functionality to the Lumension Endpoint Management and Security Suite earlier this year, Lumension Power Management received validation for meeting specific requirements such as centralised control at the server level of desktop power management settings and reporting that allows monitoring and validation of energy savings. The Network Desktop Computer Power Management Software program is administered by Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) under the auspices of the California Public Utilities Commission.

To help enterprises address the rapidly expanding risk caused by the exploding volume and sophistication of malware, Lumension has launched its Early Adopter Program for the Lumension Intelligent Whitelisting solution. Lumension Intelligent Whitelisting overcomes flexibility and ease of use challenges associated with traditional application control technologies through stronger integration with other security tools like patch management and antivirus. It also assists IT administrators in applying and enforcing application policy across groups, departments, and individuals through an advanced trusted change engine. These advances and others allow for improved security without impacting employee productivity.

"Unfortunately, most IT departments have fewer resources to manage mounting costs and risk," said Pat Clawson, Lumension's Chairman and CEO. "Malware has exploded and so has the cost associated with it, including rising help desk calls, and lost employee productivity due to remediation needs. Our recent market introduction of the Lumension® Endpoint Management and Security Suite helps IT managers reduce complexity and increase visibility across IT operations and security tasks and serves as the basis for enhanced integration across Lumension application technologies. These developments position Lumension at the forefront of market leadership in helping businesses protect sensitive data and reduce endpoint cost."

Lumension has also sponsored the development of a new industry forum focused on furthering the understanding and adoption of application whitelisting technology. discusses the current and future threat landscape and debates the role application control and whitelisting technologies can play as an integral part of a modern day endpoint security strategy. Conversation is jump started by intelligent perspectives and thought-provoking insights from a panel of IT security experts including:

• Rich Mogull and Mike Rothman, Securosis analysts and bloggers
• Richard Stiennon, IT-Harvest analyst and blogger
• Larry Seltzer, contributing editor of PC Magazine and author of Security Watch blog
• Eric Ogren, founder, The Ogren Group
• Paul Henry, forensic analyst, Lumension
Toney Jennings, CEO, CoreTrace

"Our goal in supporting the development of was to provide an open, independent, and social forum where IT professionals can get different points of view and questions answered related to their adoption and use of application whitelisting within their endpoint environments," said C. Edward Brice, SVP Worldwide Marketing Lumension. "We have welcomed industry experts, competitors, and thought leaders to actively participate in online conversation to explore the use of application whitelisting technology as a means to effectively battle the growing onslaught of malware risk and associated endpoint total cost of ownership all companies are facing today."
