In this age of advanced persistent threats (APTs) and targeted attacks, it is more important than ever to have streamlined, repeatable processes to secure organizational networks.
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 04, 2014
Lumension, a global leader in endpoint management and security, today announced availability of the latest version of its award winning Lumension® Endpoint Management and Security Suite (L.E.M.S.S.) v8.1. This latest release adds new features and functionality to improve overall ease of use for IT security teams, enhancing the efficiency and manageability of patch and endpoint rollouts, and expanding platform support across the entire suite.
L.E.M.S.S. is ideal for businesses that seek greater security, improved visibility and increased operational efficiencies at the endpoint. This bundle includes patch management, anti-virus, device control, content wizard and power management capabilities. L.E.M.S.S. Enterprise offers added protection against targeted attacks with the addition of application whitelisting and configuration management capabilities to the suite. Both are available as subscription and perpetual licenses.
“In this age of advanced persistent threats (APTs) and targeted attacks, it is more important than ever to have streamlined, repeatable processes to secure organizational networks. This release will better enable Lumension customers to efficiently plan, deploy and report on their patch roll-outs – as part of an effective security strategy that starts with reducing the attack surface using a proactive approach to application and operating system (OS) security patches, along with a proactive approach to endpoint security with application whitelisting,” commented Dee Liebenstein, VP Product Management at Lumension.
The latest release includes Custom Patch Lists which simplify the workflow by ensuring the exact same list of patches is used for test deployments, production deployment rollouts and vulnerability analysis reporting. In addition, customers can now optimize patch content set-up for their organization with the Patch Content Browser. This feature enables users to create and view Custom Patch Lists along with existing default patch views and system views to optimize patch content set-up for their organization.
In addition to patch management improvements, L.E.M.S.S. v8.1 now streamlines the process of adding endpoints to groups. The completely redesigned Endpoint Membership Dialog now includes search and filter features to seamlessly find endpoints to be added, as well as the ability to import a list of endpoints.
L.E.M.S.S. v8.1 also delivers enhanced module capabilities and expanded platform and agent support, including:
- Lumension Patch and Remediation Module: Support has been added for CentOS Linux 7, Oracle Enterprise Linux 7, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite).
- Lumension Device Control Module: Includes better device detection capabilities to ensure proper device identification and control.
- The entire suite now supports Microsoft SQL 2014.
