EgoSecure Endpoint 5.6 now available with the new module E-Mail encryption.

Ettlingen, 05.08.2014 – The German security specialist EgoSecure presents the new version 5.6 of the award-winning solution EgoSecure Endpoint. Besides the integration of the email encryption module, which is, like all other modules, focuses on a simple operation and an intuitive administration, especially the functionality of the Mobile Device Management ( MDM ) has been extended.

After a successful three-month trial phase of release candidates, the software manufacturer EgoSecure presents the new version 5.6 of the endpoint security solution EgoSecure Endpoint. The previous version of the solution has repeatedly been in the first half 2014 – for example with the highest rating 5 stars by the Federal Association of IT Experts and Valuators Association. The follow-up version now has the new module Email Encryption, which includes the transmission of data via e-mail in the overall concept of data security for businesses and government agencies. The new module again focuses  on user and administration friendliness. E-mail can be sent and received in the usual e-mail client, without having to install additional software. The globally recognized encryption standards openPGP, S / MIME and TLS are used. “Due to the  integration of email encryption we now offer seven encryption modules, which enable us to protect all data paths, without disturbing the user at work. We call this comprehensive data protection from a single source,” explains Sergei Schlotthauer, CEO of EgoSecure.

Also within the existing modules there have been numerous improvements and optimizations. The revision for further operations, for example, expanded and there is a SSL encryption as an additional option to the already proprietary encryption of internal program communications. A new content filter now allows to block password-protected zip files. In the new version all content filters can be explicitly defined for each combination of the user and a shared device.
In the Antivirus module, the new antivirus engine 3.0 has been integrated. In the audit module it is now possible to log the Internet access regardless of the browser and application. This way unauthorized traffic to the web can also be detected. In the version 5.6 logging are possible per computers. Shadow-Copy is also possible for network share. The console includes new graphically enhanced evaluations and is also available in Spanish. In the folder encryption module a network share encryption is offered.

In addition, the functionality of the Mobile Device Management module has been significantly expanded, especially for the Android-Agent. A stand-alone installation, without a MDM server required, is now possible, for example.
