Press Release

Clavister has launched a new endpoint security solution to protect devices including desktop and laptop PCs, Point of Sale systems, IoT devices and other endpoints from the latest known and unknown security threats including ransomware and spear-phishing.

Clavister’s Endpoint Security Client helps organisations deal with the hundreds of thousands of new malware variants that are developed daily to attack endpoints, steal data and encrypt files. It intercepts and examines all incoming files, inspecting them both against its known bank of malicious code signatures and on a behavioural level, to filter out previously unknown threats.

The solution incorporates a Data Loss Prevention System, to prevent sensitive data such as credit card numbers and social security numbers being leaked from endpoints, and Application Control, to offer organisations tight control over which applications can be run from its endpoint devices. It is part of an integrated global security ecosystem with more than 500 million other endpoint clients, so when a single client discovers a new malware, its signature can be shared rapidly across all clients in minutes.

John Vestberg, CTO and head of product management at Clavister said: “Hackers are aggressively targeting end-users’ devices with a range of advanced threats, with the aim of then spreading the infection onto corporate networks. Clavister’s Endpoint Security Client blocks these attacks using advanced anti-malware techniques, harnessing threat intelligence from half a billion endpoint clients globally. The solution enables businesses of all sizes and across multiple sectors to protect their networks against the ever-growing number of sophisticated cyberattacks, from ransomware to zero-day threats.”

The Clavister Endpoint Security Client includes a fully featured two-way firewall with intrusion detection, antivirus and antimalware with behavioural monitoring, zero-day threat protection, application control, sandboxing, firewall, device control, content control, anti-phishing, web filtering, and user and web controls. This delivers multiple layers of security for endpoints which block the growing range of threats and attacks which target them.
