In today's computing environments, the majority of new data is on endpoint devices. These devices are mobile and not always behind your perimeter security. Laptops, smart phones, MP3 players, thumb drives and other portable endpoint devices are especially vulnerable to loss and theft. Through wireless connections, endpoint devices can access networks that might not be secure.
Novell® ZENworks® Endpoint Security Management 4.1 simplifies endpoint security by providing centralized management of security policies for Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 devices. You can control a device's access to removable storage devices, wireless networks, and applications. In addition, you can secure data through encryption and secure network communication via firewall enforcement (ports, protocols, and access control lists). And you can change an endpoint device's security based on its location.
