ManageEngine announced the addition of data loss prevention for endpoints, anti-ransomware and endpoint compliance capabilities to its unified endpoint management (UEM) solution, Desktop Central.
This follows a 500% spike in ransomware attacks since the move to remote work last year, according to a Bitdefender report. Also, ManageEngine’s 2021 Digital Readiness Survey found that 83% of respondents faced a surge in security risks due to remote workers.
“Organizations deployed a combination of solutions like Secure Access Service Edge, cloud access security brokers and Zero Trust. However, organizations still need to ensure the security of corporate data and prevent data loss on employees’ endpoints. ManageEngine added endpoint data loss prevention capabilities with the goal of enabling its customers to restrict the exchange of data to trusted emails, peripherals and cloud applications, all from their existing UEM environment,” ManageEngine wrote in a post.
The new addition helps organizations comply with CIS compliance for endpoints, in turn complying with PCI DSS, HIPAA, FISMA and other regulatory frameworks aligning with CIS Benchmarks.
“The pandemic changed the way we work, distributing a highly centralized workforce and later pushing organizations into a hybrid work model. Cybercriminals leverage such changes to enhance the complexity of cyberattacks. Enterprises need to make constant additions to their cybersecurity infrastructure to tackle these new threats,” said Mathivanan Venkatachalam, the vice president of ManageEngine. “ManageEngine strives to continue adding enhanced security capabilities to its UEM solution, helping organizations combat the evolving threat landscape without the need for additional agents and setup.”
