Our superior fingerprinting foolproof algorithm discovers, fingerprints & profiles all of the devices, using a sophisticated algorithm which goes beyond the user agent fingerprinting which can be easily spoofed and hence not reliable
Redmond, WA (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
“i7 Networks”, a mobile security startup, announced the general availability of their flagship product PeregrineGuard in the CITE conference (Consumerization of IT in Enterprise) from IDG which is currently happening in San Francisco. PeregrineGuard monitors BYODs (Bring Your Own Devices) in enterprise LANs and offers a complete security solution through few simple steps executed seamlessly across wireless networks, without intruding on user privacy or affecting the user experience of the device.
Announcing the launch, i7 Networks CEO Manjunath M Gowda said: “Security and Compliance are major issues in today’s enterprises especially in those forward thinking enterprises where employee gets their own devices and apps to work, be it accessing just the emails or accessing all of sensitive corporate data.”
Foolproof fingerprinting of all such devices, knowledge of them and about their presence, and profiling of these devices to log, store and record on what they did while at enterprise is critical info for any enterprise be it form the compliance angle or be it from the security angle.
Unauthorized, unmanaged device existence and unauthorized device access are major threats for company confidential info leakage and also source of all malwares, and here is where PeregrineGuard comes handy. It checks all of such devices, such access including any malicious traffic as well as providing device vulnerability rating, and puts a smile for both the compliance and the security officer!
“PeregrineGuard offers the enterprise IT manager an easy and effective way of securing the network by providing probes that scans the entire network, and using its patent-pending sophisticated discovery & fingerprinting algorithm which goes beyond easily-spoofed-user-agent-fingerprinting can detect presence of any devices including unauthorized, finger print them, and also do access control. As it doesn’t require any change of infrastructure, it can be easily deployed and provisioned in a matter of minutes. Being agentless (no agent or client on a mobile device nor any provisioning for on-boarding), it is highly scalable, truly cross-platform, and no dependency on the vagaries of the OEMs, carriers or the OS providers for being effective, and also the issue of intruding into user’s privacy or changing the user experience of the device doesn’t arise at all,” Gowda said.
The product is offered in three versions—PeregrineGuard Standard, PeregrineGuard Lite, PeregrineGuard ActiveSync. The Lite version does complete device discovery, advanced fingerprinting and profiling of all the devices in the network, while the Standard version adds the policy enforcement module on top of it and the ActiveSync module helps secure the Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync connections of the devices to enterprise exchange server.
