Perimeter E-Security announces Web Security client for Macs
Perimeter E-Security, a provider of cloud security services, says their cloud-based SaaS Web Security solution now supports Mac OSX. The solution allows organizations to enforce acceptable use policies, reduce security risks and curb abuse of network bandwidth.
Filtering Web traffic and protecting against Internet threats, the solution complements Perimeter’s Network Security suite, providing a single, comprehensive service that simplifies how organizations secure their networks for Mac and PC users wherever they are, eliminating the need for costly on-premise equipment and support, according to Andrew Jaquith, chief technology officer, Perimeter E-Security.
"In the age of bring-your-own-device (BYOD), organizations are subject to new threats that further tax their security resources. Apple, long a consumer focused brand, has become the most valuable company in history. Enterprises can no longer afford to ignore Mac security," he says. "Historically, Macs represented only a small percentage of malware threats, and as a result, very few security software programs were developed to negate the threats. However, as organizations continue to expand policies allowing for employee owned devices, many of them Macs, the threats are increasing and creating issues for security departments. To combat this, Perimeter has built a Macintosh version of their SaaS Web Security solution to ensure employees enjoy the same level of protection whether they are operating a Mac or PC."
The Web Security solution is also available as part of Perimeter’s suite of secure cloud messaging solutions. For more info go to www.perimeterusa.com .
