AppSense, the global leader of secure user environment management (UEM), today announced that its continued success in delivering next generation endpoint security solutions is the topic of a new 451 Research report, “Knocking Some (App)Sense into Endpoint Security.” The report, released on February 4, 2016, outlines AppSense’s unique approach and discusses how the company’s products fill the expanding gap in endpoint protection amidst a growing barrage of malware attacks.
“AppSense has an improved approach to preventing unauthorised app execution with its Application Manager product that it believes will give it an upper hand in the battle for returning peace and (mostly) freedom from malware to the endpoint,” said Adrian Sanabria, senior security analyst, 451 Research in the report. “…AppSense has much more to offer than just an endpoint security offering. Its products are mature, widely deployed and proven.”
“Anti-virus technology alone cannot adequately defend against today’s malware and it’s clear additional defence-in-depth techniques are needed. The challenge with traditional and even some ‘next-generation’ endpoint security solutions is that they devastate the user’s experience and are extremely difficult to manage,” said Jed Ayres, Senior Vice President of marketing, AppSense. “The main driver behind our success in endpoint security is that we have the ability to help prevent, detect and respond to these potentially devastating threats before they cause significant and irreparable harm to organisations.”
AppSense provides a wide range of endpoint security functions including:
- Application control through whitelisting and blacklisting with Trusted Ownership®
- Granular Windows Privilege Management for a practical approach to least privilege practise
- Network Access Control to contain risk exposure
- Desktop software licence compliance and enforcement
- Granular visibility into security and privilege activities in a live environment
451 Research’s Sanabria will also be the featured speaker during tomorrow’s webinar, “Trusting Users (for a change).” The live webinar on February 9, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. EST will cover how new tools for application control are emerging to give users more freedom than ever.
