CoSoSys Endpoint Protector in AON search for data loss prevention

Global insurance company AON has implemented Endpoint Protector by CoSoSys to reduce the risk presented by the all-too-common data breaches and informational losses in the business world.

According to AON in a case study produced by CoSoSys, the organisation needed a way to secure data as well as control and restrict end user activities involving data.

With Endpoint Protector’s Content Aware Protection module, the insurance company gained an “intuitive and efficient” ability to monitor data and file transfers as well as an ability to manage customers’ confidential information in an “advanced, granular” way.

The software also complies with GDPR, HIPAA, PCI DSS and RBI requirements, the vendor said.

Endpoint Protector by CoSoSys also offers organisations the ability to control the risk presented by removable devices, such as USB keys, flash drives, smartphones, optical disk players, and other peripheral devices popular with end users.

The Endpoint Protector DLP software module dedicated to device control can limit or block the use of removable media or Bluetooth connectivity, ensuring that extraneous devices cannot connect to work computers.

Removable device use can be restricted in a granular way but assigning different levels of trust to specific devices based on their encryption level.

If encrypted appropriately as part of a granular security polity, data on removable devices can be used relatively safely — for instance, as part of an offline backup strategy that ensures files are recoverable in case of disaster, or to enable hybrid working practices.

“In this way, only removable media devices with a high level of security are allowed to connect to endpoints,” CoSoSys explained in a blog post.

“The policies that organisations can apply to portable storage devices through Endpoint Protector are not limited to devices’ level of security or global settings for all company computers. Different rules can be created for particular groups, users, or computers.”
