The Endpoint Data Protection Suite from Cyberoam is a full-feature, full-function suite that consists of four modules, which include data protection and encryption, device management, application control and asset management. The data encryption and protection module allows for control over document transfer and read-write access to files, as well as shadow copy protection and print controls. The device management module controls access to removable media, such as USB storage devices, as well as many other types of removable storage.
The application control module controls use of applications, such as instant messaging, peer-to-peer and FTP utilities. The final piece of the suite allows for asset management and inventory control across the enterprise network. We found this product to be a simple install and easy to manage. The installation process consists of running an executable installer on the server and providing the SQL server information for the backend database. After the installation is complete, agents can be easily deployed using the included agent deployment tool.
Once the installation is complete and the agents installed, all policy configuration and deployment is done through a management console application. We found this console to be easy to use and intuitive to navigate. Setting up policy was also quite easy. The policy engine allows for very granular or very broad policy by creating various computer and user groups.
The groups can be pulled directly from Active Directory so they can either be the same as they are in Active Directory or modified specifically for the use of the product. Documentation included two PDFs. The first was an installation guide, which provided detailed initial setup and configuration steps and instructions, including database prerequisites. The second was the administrators guide, which included instructions for how to configure policies and advance program features.
Both guides included many screen shots and step-by-step configuration examples. Cyberoam includes the first year of basic support in the purchase of the product. After the first year, users must renew a support subscription to continue using the phone and email support. Keeping your eyes on the asset management prize.

Cyberoam Launches Endpoint Data Protection
It's now turned its attention to endpoint security. Its Endpoint Data Protection EDP software is split into four modules, with the device control option handling workstation ports and devices. Application control determines what software users can run, while asset management provides full inventory and vulnerability assessments. The data protection module applies encryption to removable storage devices, runs shadow copies of data being transferred to removable devices and controls file transfers for IM and email. The Management Suite covers all modules, but you can choose any as they all run from the same console.
