As threats continue to grow and evolve, IT’s visibility into what is really happening on their endpoints is decreasing.
Scottsdale, Ariz. (PRWEB) December 01, 2011
After announcing several accolades for the Lumension® Endpoint Management and Security Suite (L.E.M.S.S.) in the third quarter, Lumension®, the global leader in endpoint management and security, continues their strong momentum in the fight against cyber attacks with their comprehensive endpoint security suite.
L.E.M.S.S. simplifies systems management, expands operational visibility and delivers more effective security through the integration of Lumension® Patch and Remediation, Security Configuration Management, Power Management and Content Wizard. Lumension® Intelligent Whitelisting is available on L.E.M.S.S. as are additional modules, including: Lumension® Application Control, Lumension® AntiVirus, Lumension® Device Control.
Enhanced Features and New Certification
With the launch of L.E.M.S.S. v 7.1 SP1 in October, a new security configuration management assessment reporting feature became available and accordingly, renewal of the SCAP certification from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) was achieved. The Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) combines a number of open standards used to enumerate software flaws and configuration issues.
In partnership with Intel® AppUp Small Business Service running on the Intel Hybrid Cloud platform, small business customers may now instantly and remotely download L.E.M.S.S. Patch and Remediation for greater security.
“The Intel AppUp Small Business Service catalog continues to expand its offerings with powerful core services, like Lumension Endpoint Management and Security Suite," said Bridget Karlin, General Manager, Intel Hybrid Cloud. "Intel is excited to work with Lumension to offer industry leading patch remediation solution across heterogeneous OS’s and configurations. This is an excellent solution for our reseller partners to provide their small business customers peace of mind they have the latest and most secure software without the need for an IT staff."
“As threats continue to grow and evolve, IT’s visibility into what is really happening on their endpoints is decreasing,” said Pat Clawson, Chairman and CEO, Lumension. “And consequently, so is overall security. An integrated endpoint management and security solution means simpler systems management, improved operational visibility and more effective security. Further validation of this idea by certification and partnership is great kudos.”
Lumension Endpoint Intelligence Center (L.E.I.C.)
Bringing together the latest information on threats, vulnerabilities and patches for improved understanding and mitigation of risk posture, Lumension has expanded the Lumension Endpoint Intelligence Center to include a number of new risk assessment tools and file validation utilities. In addition to continuously updated threat information, IT staff can now access improved data including a real-time assessment of world-wide IT risk and a product library which provides a comprehensive view into what files belong to what applications/products. Extensive new patch content for operating systems and third party applications has also been added. As a whole, L.E.I.C. brings together different silos of operational and security data to provide an intelligent understanding of and visibility into endpoint risk.
“A significant portion of endpoint security risk is found in the third-party application layer,” said Jerome Bei, Director, L.E.I.C., Lumension. “But it is of course difficult for IT to keep up with patching all of those applications. We developed L.E.I.C. as a convenient tool for IT to find the most up-to-date application intelligence information and improve their endpoint security.”
