iSheriff Endpoint Security
The iSheriff Endpoint Security Service is a cloud-based Endpoint Security platform offering advanced anti-malware technology that protects your organization’s endpoint devices from malware, secures & controls applications being used by end users and protects against threats from removable media (e.g. USB drives).
Why do I need Endpoint Security?
Securing your organization from threats should be simple yet robust. With the increasing amount of malware, more sophisticated security threats, and increasingly complex security solutions, IT administrators face a daunting task in managing security.
Over 60,000 new pieces of malware are released daily, and over 75 million unique threats are currently in the wild. While the majority of these attacks are coming through Web & email, the endpoint is the only other vector for malware infection into an organization. With users connecting a variety of devices to their endpoints, the risk of getting infected is very real. Effective Endpoint Security must detect and block malware before it can get onto your network, or onto other users’ endpoint devices.
However, blocking malware is not all that is required. Preventing the use of applications that commonly exhibit vulnerabilities or those used to share files with external parties can drastically reduce the amount of malware reaching your endpoints, as well as enabling the administrator to enforce the usage of corporate standard applications and acceptable use policies.

The Web 2.0 environment presents dynamic security challenges due to new technologies such as Ajax, along with the growing trend of the browser serving as the new operating system. Effective Internet security solutions must be able to analyze Internet content in real-time and reliably classify the nature of that content. This is especially true of Web threats.
Traditional antivirus solutions, which rely on constant and timely updates to remain effective, are insufficient against the latest Internet security threats. iSheriff applies a cohesive, multifaceted defense against Web threats by adopting a unique three-stage approach to security:
iSheriff Web Security employs iSheriff’s patented dynamic data modelling engine to analyze and predict the presence of malicious code and browser exploits.
- Real-time detection of active script anomalies
- Traffic monitoring, analysis and benchmarking to detect changing patterns
- Data modelling compares data patterns against known models to ensure authenticity
- Constant behavioral analysis of site content
- All data modelling and real-time content analysis is performed in over a dozen languages
In real-time, iSheriff can actively prevent Web threats by using data correlation across both Web and email for millions of end users around the world.
- MIME-based identification of file types to prevent download or activation of misrepresented files
- Dynamic classification of Web content means that once a site is identified as a threat, it is blocked immediately
- iSheriff services dynamically share threat intelligence across both Web and email traffic
- iSheriff can dynamically access the status of URLs and prevent access to infected portions of popular Websites
iSheriff threat analysis provides complete content analysis in microseconds, with no discernable delay in delivery of Web content.
- High performance antivirus scanning is applied to reliably detect known malware
- Code analysis of suspicious files reveals potentially unwanted applications
- Outbound connections are constantly monitored and traffic to known botnet servers is disrupted and reported on
Easily control the use of specific applications on your endpoint devices, such as remote access programs, browsers, messaging applications, and P2P sharing.
Application usage can significantly increase the risk of infection or data loss. While most applications are innocuous, many applications allow for the transfer of significant amounts of data over a secure channel. This can result in data infiltration, data leakage, policy violations and device infection. iSheriff provides the ability to easily control the use of specific applications on your endpoint devices, such as remote access programs, browsers, messaging applications, and P2P sharing.
If unmonitored or unmanaged, these applications can become a serious security and policy issue for your organization. With iSheriff, you can easily set application control policies that manage which users can access which applications, giving you the ability to match your application control policy with that of your security policy. This will ensure that users remain productive and protected.
Some of the applications that can be controlled include:
Remote Access Apps
- Google Talk/Chat
P2P and File Sharing
The proliferation of multiple device types is only increasing. Couple this trend with different business needs among end-users, and a one-size-fits all approach won’t cover your protection needs. With iSheriff, all of your Windows, Mac and Linux devices can be protected and centrally managed through the iSheriff Cloud Console.
The iSheriff Cloud Console gives an administrator the ability to control all policies on all devices. Since iSheriff is 100% cloud-based, these policies can be updated to protect users – whether they are on the network, at home, or even on the road – all through a single console.
Users can be easily grouped based upon business needs and policy requirements. With simple to deploy LDAP integration, you can use your existing groups to control user policy for even greater simplicity.
The Directory Services supported include:
- Microsoft Active Directory
- Novell e-Directory
- Apple Open Directory
- Lotus Domino Directory
- Oracle Internet Directory
- Open LDAP
- Sun Java System Directory Server
- Generic LDAP Directories
Policies can be differentiated for each user or group. This allows the admin to choose what action should be taken in the event of an infection, whether or not the user is made aware of the infection (silent remediation), as well as several other options.
Since the iSheriff Cloud Console is based in the cloud, rather than residing on a server on the internal network, the client receives policy updates in minutes, even when off-site. In the event that the device is offline, the update will be received when it next connects to the Internet. This approach ensures that policies and protections are always up-to-date.
