London, UK – 09 December 2020 – Outpost24, an innovator in full-stack cyber security assessment, today announced it has released a range of new product features to help customers simplify remote endpoint assessment whilst remaining compliant with data sovereign requirements for highly regulated industries.
Since the pandemic and the shift to remote working, Outpost24’s agent-based scanning has enabled organizations to assess remote assets and devices, with risk-based insights for greater efficiency. But for businesses operating in regulated industries such as healthcare, defense and utilities, cloud-based scanning doesn’t meet their data sovereignty needs as the storage and transfer of sensitive data are governed by stringent regulatory requirements, where all vulnerability data must be kept on premise. The Data Sovereign (DS) Agent, introduced by Outpost24, is the only solution in the market to tackle this challenge by ensuring that the Agent communicates back to secure storage in the customer’s infrastructure, and data remains within the confines of their environment.
“Our customers in highly regulated industries and countries have been struggling to improve remote working security in the pandemic. By adding this unique feature it will enable organizations regulated by strict data requirements to fully utilize our agent based scanning tool and easily keep their data within their environment to meet data sovereign requirements whilst also gaining the benefits that agents bring to endpoint security.” Bob Egner, CMO and Head of Products at Outpost24
The Outpost24 product portfolio is the only full stack cyber security assessment on the market today. In addition to DS Agents, other significant new product releases include:
- Outpost24 Portal: New Portal UI with the addition of metrics and multiple dashboards for improved user experience.
- Outpost24 Cloudsec Inspect: Container Inspection added with support for Azure Container Registries and Google Container Registries.
- Outpost24 Application Security: Improved the ability to detect 3rd party components and associated vulnerabilities in the SWAT automated scan engine.
