SaaS-Ready — Let us do the work for you

InterGuard on the other hand does not require any hardware, sets up in minutes and allows you to provide your organization with a superior solution at a fraction of the total cost of ownership of a network-based solution - and without the IT headaches.

The InterGuard Employee Monitoring Software application monitoring and blocking suite allows schedules to be set that control which software applications can be used and when. Time wasters such as Windows Media Player or iTunes can be blocked during work hours and allowed during off hours as desired. Dangerous applications, including FTP uploading or peer-to-peer programs like BitTorrent, can be permanently blocked. And of course, all activity is recorded and available to you in your online account.

Recognizing that a lot of work now gets done on mobile devices, InterGuard now offers MobileMonitor so you can monitor Smartphone emails and text messages from the same client interface you are using to monitor desktops.

Data Loss Prevention

Overview

InterGuard provides Data Loss Prevention for your organization - regardless of where your employees or your critical information reside. It can scan every file on every PC in your organization to uncover where confidential Data At Rest resides as well as prevent confidential Data In Motion from leaking out (via email / attachments, USB devices, web postings, etc.). In today's increasingly mobile world, where employees and contractors alike demand instant access to corporate assets and confidential information from remote locations, protecting that information can be extremely difficult. Traditional network-based solutions have porous perimeters. Removable media? Webmail? Instant Messaging? All these escape the control of many of our competitors. Thus, they offer only limited "data loss prevention".

InterGuard Data Loss Prevention is superior because it can identify and protect sensitive information no matter where it's being accessed. It operates preemptively to keep your organization continuously ahead of today's constantly evolving threat landscape. InterGuard is installed at the desktop level and reports back over encrypted HTTPS protocols, instead of over the network. This is crucial since it streamlines the process of detecting and blocking any unauthorized attempts to move data outside the organization. Simply put, InterGuard builds a protective circumference around each computer in your organization, rather than just network traffic. This means InterGuard is more effective and comprehensive in securing your confidential data than network-based solutions.

InterGuard uncovers your risks by scanning all of the PCs in your organization to show you where confidential information resides (Data At Rest).

InterGuard prevents confidential Data In Motion from leaking out of your organization via webmail, attachments, web postings or USB devices.

Single Agent Architecture
InterGuard's patented Single Agent architecture allow you to identify, track, and control who accesses your data, what data they access, and what they can and cannot do with that data. Most importantly, all of this is done with an application that can be deployed and configured in a matter of minutes with a minimum of allocated resources. Other DLP solutions? They can take weeks or months to install, require training courses for policy creation and create significant strains (financial and operational) on the organization.

Confidential data is often lost through errors and oversights, rather than malicious intent. For example, the wrong recipient is mistakenly added to a group email containing sensitive company financial data or customer credit card information. InterGuard not only blocks the email from getting into the wrong hands, it is also configured to “coach and educate” employees to adopt due care and best practices, as set by your company. It lets users and administrators choose the appropriate tradeoff between a high detection rate on one hand and a low level of false positives on the other.

Removable Media Monitoring and Control
InterGuard's integrated Removable Media Monitoring and Control strikes the ideal balance between protection of a business’s assets and the efficiency of day-to-day operations. InterGuard blocks the copying of any file to removable media (USB drive, iPod, external hard drive) based on the file's content, and the employee’s job function. So, an employee’s computer or user profile can be set, using InterGuard, to allow copying of email, attachments and attempts to write to removable media, but not spreadsheets with confidential company financials. This is much more targeted and so more effective than competitive solutions, which frequently employ an “all or nothing” approach when it comes to removable media.

Easy to Use and Install
InterGuard’s patented software architecture runs on computers across the organization, even those computers that never connect to the corporate network. InterGuard can be installed in minutes, without the need for dedicated hardware, and managed centrally from any web browser. It is flexible and scalable. It can operate as on-demand Software as Service, or behind your company’s firewall. InterGuard makes real-time security decisions to detect and prevent threats to the confidential data inside your organization.


Laptop Recovery

Overview

InterGuard is the best laptop protection software in the industry. It protects organizations from financial and operational impacts of laptop theft by making the contents on a lost or stolen laptop accessible to the laptop owner, but not to the thief. InterGuard allows you to identify, track, and control who accesses data on a stolen laptop, what data is accessed, and what can and cannot be done with that data. InterGuard's single agent can be installed either at the time of laptop purchase or anytime afterward. It deploys and operates invisibly. When a laptop is lost or stolen, the InterGuard agent can be activated instantaneously by the rightful owner using any web browser.

The contents on the missing laptop can now be visualized and managed remotely in real time, on that web browser, without alerting the thief. This allows the owner to retrieve any and all files from the laptop, where they can be stored centrally or downloaded to another computer. Files, or the entire hard drive, can also be deleted. The data is deleted to the U.S. government’s 5220.22-M standard featuring multiple overwrites, random characters, and write verification. Laptop Cop sends back a confirmation that the files were deleted successfully.

InterGuard also provides real-time geo-location based on wi-fi hotspot tracking, which gives a higher degree of accuracy than GPS in most urban and suburban locations. This evidence assists law enforcement in the recovery of a lost or stolen laptop, and is a far superior recovery method to simply trying to track by a computer’s IP address, which is fraught with problems. Because the IP address’ physical location can only be known by the ISP, it can take weeks or months in some cases to locate an address by this method. By that time, the computer is often in a totally different location.

Recent research shows the majority of lost or stolen laptops contain confidential company communications and information. Recent research has shown that laptop theft is now judged by CTOs to be the highest risk area for the loss of valuable company data. There are many partial solutions, including encryption and mapping data on laptops. None can restore lost data to its rightful owner. InterGuard can.
