Promisec, a pioneer in endpoint security and compliance solutions, today announced the general availability of Promisec Integrity, a suite of cloud-based offerings designed to provide endpoint security for small-to-medium enterprise organizations. The solution is built on Microsoft Azure, the same enterprise-grade cloud platform that powers the largest businesses in the world.
Promisec Integrity enables IT organizations to ensure compliance, defend against cyber threats and validate endpoint integrity across all deployed security and IT endpoint technologies. The full suite of cloud-based offerings includes a “freemium” service that checks for specific advanced malware, as well as a more comprehensive security solution with patch management validation, endpoint protection validation services and unauthorized application visibility.
Promisec Integrity represents the industry’s first Software-as-a-Service offering with out-of-the-box functionalities to detect some of the most sophisticated malware and cyber threats and provide actionable insight for remediating issues and limiting business impact. Built for environments up to 5,000+ total endpoints, the solution ensures that all leading anti-virus agents are up to date and running, leading patch management solutions are deployed and operational and informs definitively when untrusted, blacklisted software is running within a company’s environment.
“Promisec’s cloud-based Integrity offering was easy to deploy and saved me time by pulling together a view of all my endpoints which immediately gave us a comprehensive view of each end user system,” said Nick Sciarra, IT Manager of Corporate Synergies Group. “Without Promisec Integrity, I would have to leverage multiple applications and inspection tools to create the same crisp understanding that Promisec can provide.”
Designed to meet the unique needs of small-to-medium enterprise environments, Promisec Integrity leverages the flexibility and scalability of the cloud to offer advanced cyber protection that is affordable, customizable, and easy to deploy and use, while retaining the same nimble agentless functionality as Promisec’s on-premise Endpoint Manager offering. The cloud solution provides a set of modular capabilities, including antivirus solution validation and unauthorized software discovery. Through the Integrity solution, customers have a single pane of glass to understand if the myriad of agents in use are deployed on every endpoint and that they are running properly.
“Today organizations of all sizes require IT solutions that move at the speed of business, and security is no exception,” said Vibhor Kapoor, Director of Product Marketing, Microsoft Azure. “Microsoft Azure offers Promisec a platform with both the reliability a cloud-based security offering requires and the flexibility to deliver the solution at the speed growing businesses need.”
“As the threat of cyber breaches continues to escalate, companies need a multi-layered approach to endpoint security that’s easy to deploy and immediately helps to assure security and compliance throughout the enterprise,” said Dan Ross, CEO, Promisec. “We are excited to move our industry leading endpoint security solution into the cloud to make it easier for companies to access, deploy and manage. Promisec Integrity provides small-to-medium enterprises with the tools they need to strategically manage their risk exposure and more intelligently respond to threats as they arise.”
Promisec is a pioneer in endpoint visibility and remediation, empowering organizations to avoid threats and disarm attacks that can lead to unwanted headlines and penalties. Promisec’s technology assures users that their endpoints are secure, audits are clean, regulations are met and vulnerabilities are addressed proactively to ensure the integrity of enterprise IT. The Promisec Endpoint Management solution provides the power of agentless visibility and remediation before these threats can have impact, ensuring endpoint security, compliance and operational efficiency. More than 400 globally recognized companies, including Amdocs, Fossil, Teva and Wellpoint, trust in Promisec to stay secure, compliant and operationally efficient.

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
