The company provides a robust Endpoint Data Leak Prevention (DLP) suite, which evolved from their highly sought after USB port control product. The full content and network protocol aware DLP solution fits right into any organization’s network environment. “We do this through our direct integration into Microsoft Active Directory Group Policy. Our architecture is lean, requires no additional hardware, is eminently scalable, and is very easy for Windows MCSE’s to deploy, maintain, and manage due to their familiarity with the native AD and group policy management tools,” says Matthiesen. DeviceLock DLP provides both contextual and content-based controls for maximum data leak prevention at a reasonable upfront cost as well as for the lowest total cost of ownership in its category. “With DeviceLock, security administrators can match user rights to job function with regard to transferring and otherwise handling data on managed computers and accessible network storage,” he adds.
DeviceLock also keeps a close eye on virtualization technologies delivering Windows and Macintosh OS’s as VDI, DaaS, or BYOD projects. “Our Virtual DLP recommendation for how to use DeviceLock on hosted virtualized systems to solve customer data security challenges is a well thought out and deliverable strategy versus relying solely upon limited device-based MDM solutions,” claims Matthiesen.
DeviceLock is one of the few remaining pure-play DLP specialists for the endpoint DLP category, and yet it integrates with many top commercial and open source encryption technologies.
DeviceLock further differentiates itself by its unique combination of contextual security controls and content-filtering rules. DeviceLock’s solution manages and delivers content-aware and network-aware Data Leak Prevention security to endpoints natively via ‘out-of-the-box’ Microsoft Active Directory Group Policy Objects. “In short our solutions can be summed up in a short string of adjectives: better, deeper, broader, lighter, easier, and cheaper, as compared to others,” asserts Matthiesen.

Moving forward, with the recent release of an eDiscovery module for Data-At-Rest DLP search and remediation, DeviceLock aims to keep innovation as a priority. The company also plans for feature enhancements of the Endpoint DLP Suite in the areas of virtualized OS security for VDI, DaaS and mobile BYOD to extend their leadership in Virtual DLP.
