Enforceable Mandatory Access Control
Enforceable Mandatory Access Control (EMAC) is essential for the enterprise focused on mandating mobile data security. Pointsec accomplishes this by requiring the user to enter a valid user name and password, whether that password be fixed, dynamic or smart card generated. The operating system will not boot up unless an authorized user is properly authenticated. The access control cannot be bypassed, ensuring proprietary information remains private. Plus, uninstalling must be authorized.
 
Full Disk Encryption
Full Disk Encryption is an enterprise security requirement, and many CIOs will not deploy a security solution containing anything less.File encryption leaves security gaps,whereas Pointsec for PC’s sector by sector full disk encryption protects everything on the disk, including the operating system, all drives and resident data,temporary files, deleted files and unused space.
 
Central Administration
Central Administration is a requirement for the enterprise, no matter the software solution being deployed.
With Pointsec for PC,administrators can create, deploy, manage, and update their organization’s laptop

and desktop security policy from any administrator’s PC. Administrators are able to install and configure the software, delegate authorization throughout the network, modify the settings for local conditions, and assign the properties and authorization of individual users or groups by using profiles.
Pointsec allows simple, yet powerful, multi-point inspection of system information, group information, and individual user information.
