Endpoint Protection
InfoWatch Endpoint Protection module includes two local security agents – Device Monitor and Print Monitor – that
are installed at users’ workstations and help preventing accidental and deliberate corporate data leaks via local
printing, portable devices, removable media and communications ports usage. When the data is copied to portable
devices, removable media or sent to a printer, the Endpoint Protection Module makes shadow copies of all the files
(including text extraction from graphic formats – OCR). This data is then sent for analysis to the InfoWatch Traffic
Monitor Server. Thanks to Microsoft Active Directory integration, the security agents can be centrally installed at all
employees’ workstations either with Microsoft Active Directory or with own remote installation tool. InfoWatch
Endpoint Protection module supports application of security policies to users or user groups from the corporate
