Flexible endpoint security for law firm IT network.

Promisec : 07 November, 2007  (Application Story)
Spectator Professional to be used across US law company's network to provide clientless and flexible endpoint protection for its users in 22 worldwide offices.
Promisec has announced that the company's flagship product, Spectator Professional, has been selected by Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, one of the world's largest law firms - to secure over 5,000 network endpoints. Promisec's agentless solution surpassed the firm's requirements for iron clad security that was easy to use and flexible enough for the organisation's varied IT infrastructure.

Skadden Arps, with headquarters in New York City, was founded in 1948 and has 22 offices worldwide with approximately 2000 attorneys. Promisec's Clientless Endpoint Security Management solution provides the required security that is easy to use and versatile - key reasons the law firm chose Promisec's Spectator Professional.

Skadden Arps required a simple and elegant, yet powerful solution to control and manage their endpoints worldwide, to identify and fix deviations from its security policy without adversely affecting network performance or integrity. Promisec Spectator Professional proved to be the perfect choice to monitor who is on the network and when, ensuring the software and hardware being used on their networks is approved and making sure that there are no hidden threats inside their network.

'It is very important for us to be able to know that our endpoints are secure across the entire enterprise," said Nancy Lundergan, Manager of Security and Process at Skadden Arps. "Promisec allows us to monitor and remediate policy non-compliance across the enterprise. We are pleased with Promisec's clientless approach which is flexible, non-disruptive and quick to implement. Not having to install software on each and every PC is a major selling point.'

"Skadden Arps has a global reputation for excellence," said Amir Kotler, chief executive officer and co-founder of Promisec. "By choosing Spectator Professional, the firm has cast a huge vote of confidence for what we've achieved with our solution. It is a clear validation of our approach to an ongoing and difficult issue to manage for distributed organisations."

Prior to selecting Promisec, the company reviewed a number of endpoint security solutions, but Spectator's flexibility, the broader approach and the fact that the solution is not intrusive caused Skadden Arps to go with Spectator Professional. Promisec installs on a si! ng! le server and provides an agentless single point of management for the firm's vast network of Windows-based computer systems.

Promisec Spectator Professional CESM software provides Global 2000 enterprises with a complete security solution that protects them from threats originating within the internal network, caused by their own users, insiders or by technical mis-configuration. This software-only solution is normally installed on an administrator's desktop or on a dedicated server in the SOC/NOC (Security/Network Operations Centre) - not at the gateway.

Promisec Spectator Professional works seamlessly with existing gateway security solutions that enhance and complement each other and with third party desktop security agents in order to provide total security for both the network perimeter and the internal organization. With detection, repair, prevention and monitoring modules, Promisec Spectator Professional delivers a comprehensive solution to manage security on all organization network endpoints and servers. Promisec Spectator Professional identifies threats that have bypassed gateway or desktop security systems and embedded themselves in the network - rogue access points, USB devices or any other peripheral added to any network endpoint or server, and unauthorised processes or applications. Leveraging remote remediation technology from a centralised management console, Promisec Spectator Professional enables security administrators to remotely kill harmful processes, remove unauthorised applications or commands and reverse dangerous registry changes, either automatically or manually from their own workstation.
