New features help to block and log data leakage in specific smartphone and tablet synchronisation programmes
Safend, a provider of endpoint data protection and leakage prevention offerings, has introduced new enhancements to its Safend Data Protection Suite.
The new Safend Protector for Mac is a Data Protection Suite that controls and generates audit logs for physical port access and removable device access to Leopard and Snow Leopard Macs, the company said.
Safend Data Protection Suite includes upgrades to Safend Inspector, which inspects and filters data in motion, whether transmitted via email, Web, physical ports or other methods.
Safend Inspector can block and log data leakage in specific smartphone and tablet synchronisation programmes, such as iTunes, using Safend’s Content Aware Application Control Technology.
Safend vice president of product management Edy Almer said with the Data Protection Suite’s ability to protect Macs and manage the Content Aware Application Control channel, organisations no longer have to prohibit usage of devices that were previously deemed risky for the enterprise.
