Security & Trust

The U.S. patented Ensure technology has been developed by the same team that developed PointSec – the world leading full disk encryption software. The Ensure servers are based in the US, using mirroring and redundant back-ups for high availability. All communication between the Ensure agent and the Ensure servers is secured by TLSv1.2.

 


Trust through Education

Ensure provides an extensive, configurable educational block that can interact with your third-parties, prior to offering a voluntary download of the app. By providing comprehensive education prior to suggesting the app download, you establish the trust needed to achieve a successful roll-out.

Verify Device Compliance

The Ensure agent is a one-time download of an app. Once installed, it resides on the device and performs a compliance verification at each login. The check will report IP-address, date, time, device ID, browser, operating system and compliance status. If required, the collection of IP-addresses can be disabled. No other data is collected or stored. The check only verifies that the device is compliant, there is no management of the device. For smartphones and tablets it also checks that Android devices are not rooted.

Encryption Verification

Ensure verifies full disk encryption with a minimum key length of 128 bits. The app will check for full disk encryption regardless of if it is OS-native (BitLocker or FileVault2) or any other vendor encryption software. File and folder encryption are not approved.

Prevent Disruption

A case number is generated for blocked devices. Your support helpdesk is  able to manually verify if the device is compliant and remotely allow the user to continue the login process. This capability can also be delegated to the Ensure 24/7 technical support helpdesk team.

Set your own Security Policy

Ensure will allow you to set your own security policy, that every device has to comply with.
