Centia Ltd, Europes leading access solutions distributor, today announced that it has teamed with WholeSecurity, a leading provider of behavioral, on-demand endpoint security solutions. The partnership will expand WholeSecuritys global presence to the UK and provide increased distribution of its breakthrough endpoint security solutions, which safeguard PCs against threats, such as worms, Trojan horses, keystroke loggers, phishing, and other forms of malicious spyware. In the last year, the market has seen an increased demand for endpoint security due to the rise in frequency and nature of these threats, which can enable theft of confidential or proprietary information and cause costly business disruptions.
WholeSecuritys Confidence Online software tightly integrates with leading SSL VPNs, Citrix MetaFrame Access Suite, Web mail solutions, and other remote access technologies to ensure all computers connecting to the enterprise infrastructure are safeguarded against malicious programs. Confidence Online delivers on-demand protection to both managed and unmanaged PCs, including those that are not owned by the company. This enables companies to maximize the benefits of anytime, anywhere network access, while maintaining a high degree of security on endpoint PCs. As the adoption of anytime, anywhere access solutions continues to accelerate, Confidence Online fulfills a key role in overcoming concerns regarding the security of unmanaged PCs and split tunneling.
To deliver zero-hour protection against known and unknown threats, Confidence Online uses a revolutionary behavioral detection method proven by third-party testing to be more reliable and effective than signature-based solutions. WholeSecurity customers have benefited from Confidence Onlines immediate protection against the multitude of worm variants and malicious spyware released over the last six months, without having to install or update signatures. Confidence Online provides a significant cost savings by enabling a more rational and less expensive patch management process and by eliminating hours of cleanup and recovery following a widespread infection.
