Pulse 2.5: Secure Your Software by Controlling End-User Environments and Halting Hackers

Share Article

Pulse provides a world-class security manager that gives users information on hacker threats so that software can be retrieved before it is stolen

Genuitec, LLC, a founding and strategic member of the Eclipse Foundation, has released Pulse 2.5 with enhanced security features that allow IT managers and software developers to set parameters around the operation of their software to prevent code theft. The release also provides managers with real time software intelligence to prevent hacking, thereby protecting intellectual property (IP) and possible vulnerabilities.

"The easily-tailored security features in Pulse give our customers the power to choose what environments their software is allowed to operate in, thereby cutting out malicious attempts to reverse engineer or steal valuable IP," said Tim Webb, Pulse product manager for Genuitec. "We also include location control so that specific geographical locations cannot operate the software, meaning IT managers can dictate not only the operating environment but even restrict the physical locations where their software can run."

Pulse also boasts an advanced security feature called "Hacker Awareness," a setting which allows deployed software to shut itself down when being tampered with or deployed alongside non-sanctioned software. This feature notifies IT managers of the tampering attempt when connected to the central servers. Using this feature, a manager can quickly remove software off the offender's desktop - thereby protecting their IP - and also gather valuable information about the perceived criminal activity for potential legal action.

"Security is a top-line concern for every IT executive - though in many cases, the lock-down capabilities are not built into the core of the software code," says Todd Williams, vice president of technology for Genuitec. "Pulse wraps up and encrypts software with no added runtime deficits so you're protected out of the box without extra modification."

For example, if something on an end-user's environment appears to be impacting software performance or if the software is being inspected through unofficial channels, then Pulse will alert you to this behavior and the company can decide to either communicate directly with the suspect user or simply take the proactive step to completely remove it from the desktop.

"Pulse really is the most scalable and easy-to-use security software I have seen," added Williams. "Judging by the initial responses from large enterprises, I'm looking forward to delivering a previously-missing piece of mind to our customers."
