"It is easier to contain a known universe than an unknown one," says Brent Rickels, senior vice president at First National Bank of Bosque County. "Lumension Sanctuary, by design, allows users to run administratively approved programs only and restricts any unknown and unauthorized executables from springing to life. It addresses all of our concerns when it comes to malware protection and blocking unauthorized applications."

"The evolution of threats is requiring organizations to look at their current security strategy beyond only protecting against unknown applications and malware, to also address insider threats and targeted external threats. While a number of niche companies, such as Bit9, offer features that provide application level protection, we are seeing enterprises demand integrated endpoint security solution suites for simplified management and the highest level of protection that can grow with their organization," said C. Edward Brice, SVP of Worldwide Marketing for Lumension Security. "Our customers are choosing Lumension Security over niche vendors that only provide one level of protection because we provide a multi-faceted approach to security that can protect against unknown applications, malware, application mis-configurations, data leakage, and security vulnerabilities. In total, our solutions are designed to mitigate risks and provide operational efficiency with lower TCO and tangible ROI."
