Array Networks Partners with SentryBay to Provide Anti-Spyware for Array DesktopDirect Remote Desktop Access
Prevents key logging and screen capture on remote PCs and mobile devices for enhanced security
London – August 17, 2011 – Array Networks Inc., (TWO: 3664) a global leader in application, desktop and cloud service delivery, today announced a partnership with SentryBay® to provide SentryBay’s EntryProtect anti-spyware capability for Array’s DesktopDirect™ appliance-based remote desktop access solution. DesktopDirect enables secure access to office PCs or virtual desktops from any device and allows employees to work from any location. With EntryProtect, Array’s solution can now prevent key logging and screen capture on remote devices for greater security.
EntryProtect is a multi-layer, patent-pending approach to spyware that provides end-to-end protection for all users. With EntryProtect running on DesktopDirect, anti-spyware is controlled and maintained by corporate IT in the network and not on end user devices, making sensitive data such as user names and passwords safe from unauthorized capture when entered into Web applications.
“We are pleased to be working with Array Networks to integrate EntryProtect anti-spyware capabilities into the DesktopDirect product line,” said Dave Waterson, CEO of SentryBay. “Incidences of spyware are growing dramatically and our technology enables IT departments to rest assured that users are not inadvertently transmitting critical company information when they are working remotely.”
“As attacks become more sophisticated, companies who deploy remote desktop technology for access have to consider new attack vectors, and capturing key strokes and screenshots are among the few vulnerabilities affecting remote desktop access,” said Jeff Wilson, principal analyst, security at Infonetics Research, Inc. “Array’s addition of SentryBay’s technology to their remote desktop solution adds a critical new layer of protection.”
DesktopDirect remote desktop access technology is ideal for large scale deployment because it is easy to use, deploy and manage. It also inherently poses very little risk of data leakage since information accessed is only a projection on the screen. However, spyware remains a concern with remote desktop in general as users still control local keyboards and monitors. Array’s partnership with SentryBay eliminates this risk, making DesktopDirect that much more compelling as a secure solution for remote desktop access.
“Adding anti-spyware capabilities to DesktopDirect provides another level of security for our leading remote desktop access solution,” said Lior Rapaport, product line manager at Array Networks. “Building on our reputation for providing industry-leading secure access solutions, adding EntryProtect to DesktopDirect enables remote users to gain access to corporate applications with full confidence that they are not being monitored by a malicious agent.”
EntryProtect is now included as an integral component on all DesktopDirect remote access solutions.
