Data loss prevention vendor CoSoSys has launched a context aware tool for Mac OS X.

According to the company, this solution meets a company's content protection needs and data loss prevention (DLP) requirements and helps IT administrators to turn Macs into secure computers for the enterprise.

The tool will report file transfers to removable devices, online applications and to the cloud, and is available as a hardware or virtual appliance within the Endpoint Protector 4 centralised web-based administration console, claimed CoSoSys.

Roman Foeckl, CEO of CoSoSys, said: “Data loss prevention for Mac OS X is no longer an issue for businesses incorporating Macs into their network.

“We provide them with the first tool to solve their data loss problems on Mac endpoints, as well as on Windows PCs. Endpoint Protector 4 Content Aware Protection for Mac OS X comes as a solution to our clients' and partners' needs.”
