Good news for IT administrators struggling to find an effective way to manage lost or stolen laptops. Now, McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (aka McAfee ePO), an enterprise-class console for security management software, soon will be able to go further and securely disable stolen or lost laptops in order to protect the most valuable company asset: information.
This capability comes as joint effort of Intel, McAfee and Softex, that was announced last week during IDF in San Francisco, when Softex announced that has joined the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) partner program in order to develop this capability and integrates as plug-in to McAfee ePO that will be called Softex SecureDisable.
There are several reasons to it be a good news:
Softex is planning to provide this capability as cloud computing offering, hosted in their facilities or hosted on-premise in enterprise boundaries.It will allow great flexibility on how to deploy and manage this capability across the board.
Now, as never before, “road warrior” workers are able to experience service and security protection as if they were working inside corporate boundaries.
