Ecora Releases New Version of DeviceLock Endpoint Security Solution

Key new feature allows devices in USB White List to be assigned to users and groups

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. -- December 22, 2005 -- Ecora, a leader in change and configuration management software solutions supporting IT control, compliance, and security, today announced the latest version of its endpoint security solution, Ecora DeviceLock V 5.73, that allows the USB White List to be assigned to users and groups

The new USB White List feature now permits users to “White List” a single, unique device while locking out all other devices of the same brand and model, as long as the device manufacturer has supplied a suitable unique identifier (such as a serial number). Devices in the white list can now be assigned to users and groups providing more granular control over which users have access to what USB devices on their computers. One user can be allowed to use a certain device while another user can't use it on the same computer.

"With so many low cost personal and portable storage devices now available, including popular products such as MP3 players and USB Flash drives, organizations are having a difficult time controlling endpoint security," said Alex Bakman founder and CEO of Ecora. "This latest version of DeviceLock delivers even more flexibility to administer an endpoint security policy. Administrators can now specify certain approved USB devices and grant access to specific users to effectively control the use of these devices."
