Lumension has announced enhanced data protection and vulnerability management solutions.


Launching at Infosecurity Europe 2009, the next version of the Lumension Endpoint Suite now offers new benefits including validated encryption capabilities, an expanded OS platform, virtualisation support and extended reporting and database optimisation.


Meanwhile, according to the endpoint security company, the Lumension Vulnerability Management Suite, which incorporates Lumension Patch and Remediation and Lumension Scan, has been designed to optimise IT operations' patch management efforts.


New enhancements and key benefits include deep Linux and Unix coverage, optimised management of Windows and non-Windows patches, enhanced inventory visibility for virtual machines and network access control integration.


Dee Liebenstein, senior director of product management at Lumension, said: “Our goal behind the enhancements to our products is two-fold. First and foremost, we are continually evolving our product features and functionalities to further empower enterprises to simply security management and keep threats at bay.


“Second and equally important is to enhance PC power management capabilities through these product upgrades. Given the budgetary pressures, more organisations are realising that the greatest savings come from employing power management features.”
