Stopping Security BreachesInside the Network
InfoExpress' CyberGatekeeper LAN software designed to help enterprises prevent security breaches from inside the network as well as stop unauthorized use of company machines.Enterprises looking for a way to prevent security breaches from inside the network and to stop unauthorized use of company machines will have a new alternative soon when InfoExpress Inc. releases its CyberGatekeeper LAN software. The system is based on the premise that any action not expressly permitted under a companys security policy is malicious. This is hardly a new concept, but instead of passively monitoring user activity and producing alerts and reports for administrators, CyberGatekeeper LAN enforces policy and prevents users from acting in ways that are prohibited. The solution comprises an agent on the end-users devicebe it a desktop, laptop or handheldand a server-side component. When a user logs onto the network, the server recognizes the agent and performs an audit of the client machine, checking for compliance with the corporate security policies. For example, if the policy dictates that all machines must have a specific anti-virus client running and be updated with the latest definitions, any PC that does not conform to the policy will be denied access.
If users cant access the network, they are placed in a sort of quarantine area where they can download and install whatever software is required before being allowed full network access.
