AppSense Unveils First Security Solution to Result from Merger with LANDESK

Endpoint Security Suite 2.0 combines Shavlik Protect with AppSense Application Manager and AppSense Insight to deliver five recommended measures to stop malware and ransomware attacks.

AppSense, a provider of user virtualization solutions for the secure endpoint, has released Endpoint Security Suite 2.0, the first combined solution to result from the LANDESK acquisition of AppSense. The new solution suite brings together Shavlik Protect with AppSense Application Manager and AppSense Insight to meet five critical measures to mitigate malware and ransomware attacks, described by the SANS Institute as the “First Five.”

“All experts agree that prevention is the best defense against malware and ransomware threats,” says Jon Rolls, vice president, product management, AppSense. “Nowhere in today’s infrastructure is that more critical than the endpoint. By combining the power of AppSense Application Manager and AppSense Insight with the comprehensive patch management enabled by Shavlik Protect, we’re delivering the industry’s only solution that addresses all five threat mitigation strategies on the SANS Institute ‘First Five’ list. As a result, we can uniquely enable businesses to protect customer and corporate data from being compromised, stolen, or held hostage.”

According to the SANS Institute, the first five critical security controls for an effective cyber defense system include:

  • Software white listing
  • Secure standard configurations
  • Application security patch installation within 48 hours
  • System security patch installation within 48 hours
  • Administration privilege restriction when users are browsing the web or handling email

Endpoint Security Suite 2.0 supports each of these five key controls to enable organizations to protect data assets against external threats from malware and ransomware as well as intentional and unintentional user actions. Application Manager contributes application control, image protection, privilege management, and file integrity checking. Protect delivers patch installation and management, while Insight reports on admin rights ownership and end user behavior. By combining these capabilities, the suite offers a layered approach to corporate information security. †
