Comodo Security Solutions announces the release of its Comodo Endpoint Security Manager 1.5 software. Comodo Endpoint Security Manager is integrated with Comodo Internet Security, rated #1 in proactive security by Matousec.com, an independent security testing authority. Comodo Endpoint Security Manager 1.5 combines the unparalleled malware prevention of Comodo Internet Security software together with powerful central administration features for businesses with dozens to thousands of PCs. New in version 1.5 are breakthrough features, including Auto Sandbox Technology™, and a limited warranty to repair PCs damaged by malware.
Businesses of all sizes are increasingly targeted by hackers, with a disturbing trend of attacks directed at specific personnel or groups, such as corporate finance staff with access to electronic banking systems. Starting in mid 2009, small businesses, local governments, educational institutions and not-for-profit organizations began reporting staggering financial losses due to malware attacks. These mounting losses are due in part to weaknesses in conventional PC security solutions that have long relied on a “blacklisting” approach that blocks only known threats from executing. Because most threats are unknown at the initial point of contact, they are unlikely to be blocked by conventional security software. Coupled with the fact that many users do not keep their computers or security software regularly updated, it’s no surprise that businesses continue to encounter financial loss and other problems stemming from malware infection. Comodo Endpoint Security Manager, with Comodo Internet Security, has been engineered to obliterate this trend.
Melih Abdulhayoglu, Comodo’s CEO and Chief Security Architect said, “The cost of ineffective PC security in the business community is staggering. In addition to direct financial losses due to cybercrime, businesses are increasingly burdened by high IT staff costs to remediate malware infections and administer security software, increased equipment costs to replace infected PC’s, and losses to employee productivity due to slow or unavailable PCs.” Abdulhayoglu explained, “As a result, businesses are actively seeking better protection. Through its unparalleled ability to prevent virus and other malware infections, Comodo offers businesses what they really need, at a fraction of the price they’re currently paying for an ineffective product.”
Comodo Endpoint Security Manager 1.5 redefines PC security for businesses by shifting the protection paradigm from conventional detection to proactive prevention, providing unparalleled superior protection. With core security provided by Comodo Internet Security 4.0 and its Default Deny Technology™, only those files that are on the safe “whitelist” of over 15 million files are allowed to run and access critical system resources or information. All other files are either blocked, because they are known to be unsafe, or automatically “sandboxed” if their safety is unknown. While sandboxed, an application is closely monitored and given limited privileges, it can only write to a virtual file system and registry. Comodo’s unique, patent-pending Auto Sandbox Technology™ relieves users and administrators from having to make difficult decisions about which applications to block and which to allow, this makes the product both easier to use and more secure than competitive alternatives. Default Deny Technology™, working in concert with fully-featured antivirus and firewall components allows Comodo Internet Security 4.0 to provide the strongest protection against viruses and malware of any other PC Security solution available today. No other company provides this automated sandbox feature today.
The key features included in the Comodo Endpoint Security Manager 1.5 package are:
