Lifeboat, a global distributor for virtualization, security, application and network infrastructure, now has a distribution deal with OnGuard, the developer of Intelligent ID, Lifeboat said in a press release. Intelligent ID is software that provides continuous endpoint monitoring and management particularly to protect companies against insider threats, which are one of the most looming threats to data security within an enterprise.
“The insider threat stands as one of the top challenges facing an organization’s security,” said Jim Mazotas, CEO of OnGuard Systems, in the release. “We are excited to expand our reach in the cybersecurity market through our distribution agreement with Lifeboat and their vast network of technology partners.”
Intelligent ID is a customizable suite of monitoring products that includes Data Loss Prevention, Identity Activity, Productivity Analysis and Infrastructure Monitoring, according to the release. Features of the software include advanced DLP (data loss prevention), infrastructure monitoring and productivity analysis.
Intelligent ID’s various components work together with the company’s Sensitive Data Crawler product to locate and report where data has moved over time. By monitoring endpoint file and user activity across the network and alerting administrators to abnormal or risky behavior in this way, the software can stop data loss at the source, identify and control insecure workflow practices, and protect a company’s resources and IP from misuse, according to OnGuard.
OnGuard continues to develop additional features and components to Intelligent ID to make it more comprehensive and user-friendly, Mazotas said. Intelligent ID is also fully compatible with VDI or Citrix environments.
Lifeboat will promote OnGuard Systems’ Intelligent ID solution together with the company’s extensive lines of security, virtualization, and network and infrastructure management products, the company said.
“We’re excited that OnGuard Systems chose Lifeboat as their first North America distributor of Intelligent ID,” said William R. Botti, executive vice president at Lifeboat Distribution. “Intelligent ID’s scalable solution makes comprehensive coverage available for any size organization and is a valuable addition to our security portfolio.”
He said that Lifeboat’s partners can now offer a cost-effective and quick-to-deploy solution to protect their customers from a multitude of insider threats and to help ensure PCI compliance, and also expand the Intelligent ID sale to include professional installation services once certified on the software.
