Local McAfee distributor, Workgroup, has announced the availability of McAfee’s Data Loss Prevention Host 2.0. The new version includes comprehensive device management and integration with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO).
High profile data breaches continue to make headlines, impacting corporate reputations and bottom lines, says Bernadine Botha, McAfee product manager at Workgroup.
“McAfee Data Loss Prevention offers complete visibility and control by monitoring and preventing confidential data loss everywhere – at work, at home or on the road,” she adds.
“It stops information loss across networks, through applications, and via removable storage devices, even when data is disguised. McAfee has safely enabled the use of valuable employee productivity tools such as USB thumb drives by offering granular control over which devices are allowed to be used, while enforcing control over what data can be copied to them.”
Easy management through McAfee ePO enables event monitoring and incident details to prove internal and regulatory compliance measure to auditors, board members, and other stakeholders.
McAfee DLP is part of an overall Security Risk Management portfolio that customers can add without adding a new agent or console to minimise management times and costs while offering a complete security view for faster response.
“McAfee has combined comprehensive device management with flexible controls to stop confidential data from being copied onto USB devices so that employees can use them safely,” says Botha.
