DeviceLock today announced Version 6.4 of its endpoint security software. The new release adds file-type detection and filtering capabilities.
The basic premise of the software is that it “allows you total control over who has access to what on peripheral devices,” said’s director of sales for the Americas. DeviceLock allows users to capture files and forensically dive into them later, he said.
The new release lets users “look deep into the file and discern the true file type,” regardless of what the file is named, he said.
DeviceLock’s file-type detection and filtering capability can detect about 3,800 file types and can be customized to add new file types, the company said.
The new version also offers automatic policy-mode switching, where it’s possible to centrally define a set of permissions to be applied when a computer is disconnected from a corporate network.
“Now you can differentiate when an endpoint is directed to a well-protected network versus when it’s undocked or just out on the Internet,” Matthiesen said.
The product also offers some graphical reporting capabilities. Collected data, presented in a grid-column format, can be converted into a report and e-mailed, the company said.
