SkyRecon's StormShield Provides Unified Endpoint Threat Protection for Network-Complex Organizations

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - November 26, 2007) - SkyRecon Systems, the premier provider of unified endpoint security solutions, today announced that a new White Paper commissioned by SkyRecon and produced by IDC, "Key Issues Around Endpoint Security," describes its StormShield Security Suite as "a unified method for handling the multiple threats and issues associated with network endpoints."

SkyRecon's StormShield unified endpoint protection product is the first in the industry to provide a single-agent solution with real-time defenses designed to protect an organization's endpoints and the critical business data that resides on them. StormShield's multiple protection layers address every aspect of endpoint and data protection: intrusion prevention, application control, device control, content encryption, all through a single agent and single management console.

StormShield's key focal points are the following:

Integration. The single, lightweight StormShield agent secures endpoint connectivity, the operating system, applications, and sensitive data from attack while controlling unauthorized user operations.

Behavior-driven prevention. Since antivirus/antispyware solutions rely on signatures, hackers have both the numbers and time on their side. To counter this, StormShield secures the PC using proven behavioral technology, not signatures, to automatically detect and block suspicious or dangerous activity.

Role-based policies. Dynamic policies can be deployed to prevent unauthorized removal of sensitive business data using removable storage devices. Policies can also be applied to mobile laptops to restrict access to business applications while connected to public hotspots without a VPN session.

"The popularity of laptops in business dramatically increases the potential for a security breach and data theft," said Ravy Truchot, SkyRecon CEO. "Companies need to recognize that securing their mobile endpoints and protecting the data they contain is a very different challenge from that which is required to secure their internally-managed desktops."

"IT security policies can no longer be contained at the physical perimeter of the organization; they must also account for the virtual perimeter encompassing an organization's mobile devices, the users of those devices, and the data that they have access to," said Truchot.
