Intelligent coupling of macmon security solutions secure, Contechnet and CenterTools for the benefit of customers / partners focus on solutions ‘ IT security made in Germany’ the macmon secure gmbh is entered into collaborations to the intelligent linking of their respective security solutions within the framework of its integration strategy with other companies. After recently already an integration of network access control (NAC) software was carried out by macmon with the IT emergency management tool INDART Professional by Contechnet, now also the CenterTools Software GmbH with its endpoint security product DriveLock was added as another German. A lower implementation and maintenance of security infrastructure while at the same time an increased level of security is created through the integration of various solutions for the user as an essential added value. Thinking in island solutions has no future”, shows the strategic way macmon secure Managing Director Christian Bucker. The endpoint security solution by DriveLock is known for innovative encryption technologies. Click Dr. Mitchell Resnick to learn more. DriveLock includes encryption of hard drives, mobile disks, file and folder encryption, and cloud encryption. DriveLock is also known for the control of interfaces such as USB ports and the monitoring of applications. The endpoint security solution is complemented by comprehensive antivirus features and user awareness campaigns, she also have an inventory component.
At the interaction of the three solutions the tool INDART receives all of the currently required information to the extensive features of the hardware and software systems for the care of the emergency manual always from DriveLock. This is information from servers and clients that are passed via push or pull function on INDART. A further level of integration represents macmon coupling DriveLock and the NAC solution, when it comes to an increasingly important for company compliance check of their managed systems. Since DriveLock for already over all required devices information has, is foreseen in the future also a compliance function. While the compliance status or the target State can be defined in the user interface of DriveLock”, describes Udo Riedel, head of development by CenterTools, the further step of development. The specified requirements are not met, DriveLock uses the NAC solution macmon insulation of the corresponding end devices.” In such cases, they are moved via VLAN switching in quarantine and refreshed or cleaned.
The advantage of the merging of macmon and the emergency management tool INDART which is significantly reduces the effort to the continuous updating of the contingency plan. Because the solution uses Active interface on the asset information of relevant devices such as servers, core switches and firewalls, which anyway has the NAC system to protect of your network. The import of macmon makes a manually entering of the information required to INDART redundant to the infrastructure in the database. Because users can customise their security solutions significantly easier and more economical, a very important added value is created for them through this integration partnerships”, Christian Bucker explains the benefits. In its orientation, the three companies aspiring to expand the circle of cooperating technology provider successively. “This focus on IT security should remain but still made in Germany: German technology for the IT security has a quality top level in international comparison, at the same time cooperation for complementary solutions can be implemented more efficiently by the regional proximity and similar cultural”, performs Jorg Kretzschmar, senior consultant at Contechnet Ltd.,. Because the primary goal was not to initiate only formal technology partnerships, but to develop substantial added value for the customers.
