Comodo Firewall Advanced Endpoint Protection Prevents Network Intruders Using Whitelisting, HIPS

Jersey City, NJ, November 5, 2008 - Comodo Advanced Endpoint Protection now enables centralized management of the award-winning Comodo Firewall Pro, trusted by millions of users around the world. Saving significant time and money on security software, installation and day to day management tasks, ESM also enables IT staff to remotely and rapidly control endpoint usage and security policy configurations. ESM's instant set-up and management of Comodo Firewall Pro enables maximum protection against harmful threats, all from a central administrative console.

Comodo Firewall Pro recognizes more than 1,114,000 known safe executables, and its Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) challenges those it doesn't know. Through this combination of Comodo ESM and Firewall Pro, endpoints are protected in a more dynamic and comprehensive manner than ever before. HIPS monitors and controls all execution paths and prevents malware from executing. ESM remotely deploys and manages the Firewall and all security policies without the need to wait for a virus signature update from any vendor.

While competing security software companies continue to patch their software to prevent possibly disastrous threats, zero-day attackers can be exploiting known vulnerabilities before a patch can be issued. With Comodo Firewall Pro, unknown code execution is prevented as a first and most important line of defense while ESM assists by alerting the IT administrator of suspected and prevented threats and then allowing immediate management actions to occur remotely.

For a limited time, Comodo Security Solutions will provide Advanced Endpoint Protection at no charge for up to five desktops within an organization. To get a free trial of Comodo Endpoint Security Manager, please visit https://enterprise.comodo.com/security-solutions/free-trials/
