Endpoint encryption through IT adminstration console.

Credant Technologies : 14 April, 2008  (New Product)
Integration between Mobile Guardian and Altiris enables endpoint encryption tasks to be performed through a management console.
Credant Technologies has announced the integration of its Credant Mobile Guardian solution with Symantec's Altiris endpoint management platform. For the first time ever, IT administrators can use the Altiris management console to encrypt, audit, and protect the data residing on enterprise endpoints. The integration of Credant encryption with Symantec endpoint management solutions allows IT administrators to seamlessly deploy and manage data protection and encryption enterprise-wide, to establish and change encryption policies, and to generate end user reports directly from the Altiris management console.

This partnership between Credant and Symantec and the integration of Credant encryption with the Altiris management console addresses the growing business imperative to protect sensitive data residing on PCs, laptops, removable media and smartphones. Additionally, it further simplifies the control of critical data by providing management and security within a single environment. Credant engineered its endpoint data security solution to "protect what matters" while ensuring that the security does not interfere with operational processes and is totally transparent to the end user.

The integration will also enable companies to quickly locate unprotected corporate notebook computers and automate the deployment and provisioning of encryption through a single management console. This helps protect vulnerable endpoints, safely encrypts lost or stolen data, and secures enterprise desktop computers, laptops, smartphones, and removable media, from emerging threats, both external and internal.

"The need for enterprises to more easily secure corporate and customer data is front and centre for companies today, and new regulations demand wide scale and auditable compliance," said Bob Heard, CEO of Credant Technologies. "Now that Credant Mobile Guardian is integrated with Symantec's Altiris endpoint management platform, customers can easily manage endpoint encryption without deploying yet another management console," he added. "This solution fits the needs of large, dispersed enterprises, whose IT administrators can rely on Altiris technology to help automate the deployment of data protection to thousands of desktops and notebook computers without changing patch management, application deployment, or any other element of their endpoint management process."

Credant made use of the Altiris Developer Program and the open Altiris architecture to develop this integration. Symantec's Altiris solutions offer IT lifecycle automation solutions designed to help IT organizations manage, secure and support IT assets while promoting confidence in IT service delivery. Symantec solutions help reduce enterprise costs of owning, operating, securing and supporting technology by automating management tasks.
