Impulse Lowers Security Breach Risks from Windows Devices with New Security Compliance Functionality
By: Impulse Point
It's widely recognized that many security breaches originate from the endpoint device. A recent report from the Ponemon Institute found that 88% of data breaches were caused by simple negligence on the part of staff.¹ While there is more control for domain managed devices, it is challenging to have the same control with Corporate Owned, Personally Enabled (COPE) or Bring Your Own Device (BYOD).
SafeConnect provides the automated tools to mitigate risks with these occurrences through identification and remediation. "While most companies have security measures in place, the sophisticated nature of cybersecurity attacks continues to escalate, requiring constant vigilance. With SafeConnect, we provide awareness with our contextual intelligence and remediation to get back in compliance. We are continuously enhancing SafeConnect to leverage additional techniques for checking compliance. With the Windows Security Compliance policies, there is one view to ensure proper compliance."
In addition to its existing capabilities for real-time endpoint compliance such as OS patch level, antivirus, and system processes, this enhancement allows Impulse to address common regulatory requirements by ensuring these security measures are enabled on a Windows device:
• Lock Screen
• User Account Control
• Data Endpoint Protection
• Block USB Media
• Diagnostic and Usage Data
• Location Sharing
• Spectre and Meltdown Patch
To learn more about how you can leverage these capabilities, contact Impulse at email@example.com.
