NEEDHAM, Mass.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Promisec, a leading provider of actionable endpoint management solutions, today announced the availability of a free, downloadable and automated security inspection for up to 100 endpoints. Addressing the need for holistic endpoint visibility, management and security, Promisec is announcing this free inspection tool to bring clarity as to what is really running, or not running, on endpoint computing devices. The free inspection process produces results in about five minutes, with all data stored locally on the administrator’s machine to assure privacy and confidentiality.
“Lacking real-time visibility across all endpoints is a constant challenge for IT security teams when assessing vulnerability”
Based on thousands of scans conducted over several years with companies of varying sizes, Promisec found that, on average, more than 20 percent of endpoint devices contained undetected risks including disabled antivirus agents, missing hot fixes and service packs unauthorized software running and much more. As endpoints become the target where attackers seek to exploit vulnerabilities, security and IT professionals must have complete agnostic real time visibility into their endpoints to assure they are protected and meeting compliance requirements.
Companies who choose to download and run the free inspection tool will learn key insights about the status of 100 select endpoints, including:
- Whether their designated anti-virus program is installed, up to date and running properly
- The presence of unauthorized black listed items such as P2P, hacking tools, or remote controls
- The status of Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager or Systems Management Server
Armed with this information, IT security and operations professionals can make informed decisions about the state of their endpoint security, and whether to increase visibility and security efforts accordingly. Promisec enables real time visibility into endpoints without installing any agents that can impact network bandwidth or the performance of the endpoints being inspected.
The announcement comes on the heels of a notable upgrade to its flagship solution, Promisec Endpoint Manager 4.9, a fully automated enterprise-class agentless software solution providing organizations with total visibility and control of endpoints and servers, providing increased security and compliance and making managing complex IT operations simpler and more efficient. The full solution currently manages millions of endpoints across enterprises in a myriad of industries. It provides full visibility of endpoints across an enterprise, including multi-platform support for MS Windows, Unix/Linux systems, Mac and Android.
"Lacking real-time visibility across all endpoints is a constant challenge for IT security teams when assessing vulnerability," said Dan Ross, CEO of Promisec. "The best defense against potential breaches and attacks is to know the current state of every potential point-of-entry. That’s why we are proud to start offering free inspections to arm IT teams with valuable truths about where they are exposed, reveal potential risks, and help them make the business case to invest in a consolidated management and reporting tool."
