01 Jan OnSystem Defender Provides Friction-Free Endpoint Protection
UMBC has been working with OnSystem Logic for the last two years and has been able to watch the product mature and develop into a truly impressive tool for preventing malware from gaining a foothold into a system. We first deployed the tool within our own division, one of the more complex and difficult groups on campus due to the large and diverse set of applications we utilize. After that, we have begun rolling the software out to our higher-risk departments across campus that work with financial or student data.
According to Jack Suess, VP of IT, “OnSystem Defender provides friction-free endpoint protection for UMBC’s high-risk desktops,” that other solutions can’t achieve. Most other tools securing our endpoints focus on reactive measures, all of which can be either bypassed or disabled by new zero-day malware. The in-depth understanding of the applications and their behavior within OnSystem Defender provides a new level of assurance that no level of external or traditional protections can provide. In addition to the higher security gained from OnSystem Defender, the deployment of the tool has been seamless. Unlike other endpoint protection tools, which often require custom configuration due to the variety of applications we use, the rollout of OnSystem Defender was friction-free and eased any concerns from our end users and our client services team regarding adding end-point protection onto their machines.
