Granularity Security Control for Virtualized Environments

Virtualization of end-user applications and desktop operating systems is driven by organizational desire for cost-effective extension of access accommodating ever increasing greater user mobility, enhanced security, and resource efficiency gains. Virtualization solutions’ security enhancements, however, may come at the expense of user productivity. For example, the typical inherent device control capabilities either provide great security in blocking all external device, which hinders the necessary business activities of the road and cube warrior, or enable an unrestricted a flow of information, which allows data to leave an organization without proper encryption. Lumension® Endpoint Security XPress facilitates a proper balance between security and productivity not only for user device data flow but for also for enhanced malware prevention.
