ControlGuard is partnering with Perception Digital, a manufacturer of portable hard storage and players, in an OEM agreement for Endpoint GateKeeper. Perception Digital’s line of portable hard drives will embed ControlGuard’s technology and carry the ‘Protected by ControlGuard’ seal.
The Endpoint GateKeeper broadens ControlGuard’s portfolio and addresses what the company sees as a growing security concern in the SMB environment. Perception Digital’s line of portable storage hard drives and media players are capable of storing any file types via high-speed USB and with ControlGuard Endpoint, Perception Digital says that its users will be able to control and selectively authorise which storage devices can be accessed.
“Data protection is a serious issue for companies of all sizes,” comments Israel Levy, CEO of ControlGuard. “Perception Digital is the perfect example of a manufacturer for the SMB market that recognises it must account for not only the product it sells, but the ongoing health and security of that product for its end users. This agreement is a vehicle for ControlGuard to deliver the protection that all of today’s companies need.”
