Promisec Ltd., a leading provider of clientless endpoint security management (CESM) technology, announced today that its Spectator for Enterprises(TM), has been selected by King's College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in London to secure its 3,000-endpoint network. Promisec's agentless solution helps the hospital to significantly reduce endpoint administrative and security tasks and increase the productivity of IT staff as well as that of endpoint users, while decreasing its exposure to internal threats, both malicious and accidental.
King's College Hospital is one of the United Kingdom's largest and busiest teaching hospitals. The hospital chose Promisec's Spectator Professional for Enterprises due to its clientless approach to detecting potential endpoint weaknesses and ability to remediate identified threats. Promisec also enabled a layered approach to internal network security through its centralized third-party management platform to ensure compliance with security policies and software licensing.
"Promisec Spectator gives us comprehensive visibility into endpoint activity and greater control over our network," said Derek Farlow, ICT Security Manager at King's College Hospital. "Its clientless approach makes deployment quick and easy, and the software's versatility enables us to secure our endpoints simply while enforcing that security across the entire organisation from a single point in our network."
After reviewing other endpoint security solutions, King's College Hospital purchased Spectator for Enterprises to manage more than 3,000 network endpoints and ensure that internal network compliance initiatives are satisfied. Spectator for Enterprises is installed on a single server and provides agentless single point of management for the organization's extensive network of Windows-based computer systems.
King's College Hospital needed a solution that would be able to identify and fix deviations from its security and software usage policy without adversely affecting its network performance. Due to the number of different people using the network it was difficult to keep track of users' activity and the software and hardware used on their workstations. The solution had to complement the hospital's existing IT infrastructure without involving any major changes to the status quo due to the limited resources available . Spectator for Enterprises' was the ideal choice because of its complete range of threats addressed, its ease of deployment and simple yet powerful operation.
