Through our Early Adopter Program, we are committed to fostering a deeper relationship with those customers that want to be on the leading edge of endpoint security software technology and solutions,
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 14, 2011
Lumension®, a global leader in operational endpoint security, today announced the launch of its Lumension Early Adopter Program (L.E.A.P) for the Intelligent Whitelisting software solution. As malware continues to grow in volume and sophistication, it is vital that organizations employ the proper measures to protect end-user data and endpoints, especially as evidence grows that relying on antivirus as a standalone security defense is wholly ineffective. Lumension® Intelligent Whitelisting delivers a more dynamic, operational application whitelisting solution by integrating both blacklisting and whitelisting technologies, along with patch management, resulting in a more effective endpoint security solution that won’t negatively impact organizational productivity.
L.E.A.P. is aimed at providing early adopter customers who wish to move ahead of the market curve with access to innovative pre-General Availability (GA) software technologies along with increased support from a dedicated team of experts from Lumension’s software development and professional services organizations.
“Through our Early Adopter Program, we are committed to fostering a deeper relationship with those customers that want to be on the leading edge of endpoint security software technology and solutions,” said Pat Clawson, CEO of Lumension. “All Lumension customers will ultimately benefit from this program as additional feature enhancements and overall application improvement will inevitably result.”
“We are thrilled to join Lumension’s Early Adopter Program to prevent the use of unauthorized applications or devices and further protect our client’s endpoints by staying ahead of the unknown threats,” said William Bell, director of information systems at PhoenixNap. “Lumension’s innovative approach to intelligent whitelisting provides us a single, seamless view into our network and gives us a new level of visibility into the network than was previously possible and we look forward to continuing our education through Lumension’s stellar support team.”
The rollout of this program comes just after the release of Gartner’s “Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms” report**, which for the first time positioned Lumension as a Visionary. According to Gartner, “visionaries” are vendors that “invest in leading-edge features — such as advanced malware protection, data protection and/or management capabilities — that will be significant in the next generation of products, and will give buyers early access to improved security and management.”
**The Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms was written by Peter Firstbrook, John Girard and Neil MacDonald and published December 17, 2010. Gartner's ID number for the report is G00208912. Gartner clients can access the report from gartner.com.
Inclusion into L.E.A.P. is by invitation only. Interested parties can find out more information and apply for the Intelligent Whitelisting Early Adopter Program. General Availability (GA) for Lumension Intelligent Whitelisting will be in April 2011.
