Endpoint management solutions developer Promisec has upgraded its flagship product, Promisec Endpoint Manager. The automated, agentless software solution provides SMBs with full visibility and control of endpoints and servers. With the new version, Promisec Endpoint Manager provides increased automation and remediation across a wider range of endpoints, including UNIX/Linux and Windows 8.
“As technology becomes more advanced, the volume of endpoints and the variety of platforms that IT organizations need to not only manage, but keep up to date and secure, has grown dramatically,” states Promisec in a press release submitted to ChannelPro-SMB. To address this, Promisec has expanded its capabilities to include the ability to inspect and provide intelligence on Unix/Linux systems, Mac (version 10x and above), and Android as it currently does for MS Windows systems.
It also added the ability, through integration with Nmap Security Scanner, to detect the OS fingerprint of operating systems (Microsoft, Unix/Linux systems, iOS, Android, VOIP, etc.). The solution will support Windows 8 and Server 2012.
“Promisec Endpoint Manager 4.8 helps companies optimize existing investments, retire unproductive products, increase productivity, meet compliance requirements, and more,” the press release adds.
With this new release, Promisec Endpoint Manager (formerly known as INNERSpace) now includes such features as:
- Inventory Module – Organizes items that are recently introduced or changed in the network to provide IT managers with full visibility.
- Enhanced Compliance Intelligence – Detailed reporting capabilities include PCI DSS reports, with plans to incorporate HIPAA, SOX, and other standard industry functions.
- Automation Enhancements – Automation enhancements enable IT managers to create commands and tasks. For example, organizations can identify applications they do not want users to have, and those applications will be automatically uninstalled.
- BYOD Support – Through integrated fingerprint identification, SMBs can identify mobile devices that exist on networks, enabling them to manage and enforce BYOD.
“Today’s IT managers are faced with evolving challenges, shrinking budgets and persistent threats, and as such must be ready to maximize existing investments and handle anything that comes their way,” said Dan Ross, CEO of Promisec. “Organizations now understand that the real vulnerabilities lie within the endpoints, which is why we have been hyper focused on delivering an endpoint solution that supports multiple platforms. We’re thrilled to be able to provide UNIX/Linux support and enhanced automation and reporting benefits to our customers in our new version of our agentless solution.”†
