SentryBay Partners with EUC Software Innovator Stratodesk to Deliver Shield Against Cyber Threats for BYOD Environments

SentryBay | January 12, 2022

SentryBay, the UK-based cybersecurity software company, and Stratodesk, the leading global innovator in end-user computing (EUC) management and OS software, announced their technology alliance partnership. This partnership benefits companies by delivering advanced security options to prevent keylogging and screen capture on Stratodesk’s operating system layer, rather than just a connected Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) session. SentryBay and Stratodesk channel partners are now able to offer companies across all verticals an additional security layer as part of their VDI, cloud and IoT endpoint solutions to customers. As organizations move towards bring-your-own-device (BYOD) models enabling them to support the expanding hybrid workforce, the demand for devices running a secure operating system is growing. This partnership allows companies who deploy Stratodesk NoTouch OS to take advantage of SentryBay’s patented, anti-keylogging, anti-DLL injection and anti-screen scraping technology. A US-based multinational healthcare and insurance company has chosen the SentryBay and Stratodesk joint solution to ensure additional compliance and security measures are in place for devices inside the organization as well as the more compliance challenged work-from-home devices. There is much synergy between SentryBay and Stratodesk. It made perfect sense to bring our security software together with Stratodesk NoTouch OS in order to deliver an operating system fit for today’s ever-shifting corporate and remote/hybrid environment. Defending against the threat of attack on endpoints is a constant battle and our layered approach ensures that organisations can mitigate the risk of data-loss at the point of data entry. We look forward to working together in partnership with Stratodesk.” Brent Agar, VP Business Development, North America at SentryBay “Stratodesk NoTouch OS is built to be innately secure,” says Stratodesk CEO and Founder Emanuel Pirker. “Those looking to take advantage of SentryBay’s advanced, added security will benefit from the quintessential security, flexibility and remote/hybrid work friendly solution that is Stratodesk NoTouch. Our joint customers can leverage secure work from anywhere with impeccable security standards thanks to Stratodesk NoTouch OS and SentryBay Armored Client.” As the network access point of choice for cybercriminals, unmanaged endpoints such as Thin Clients, personal computing devices, and dedicated work desktop PCs are highly vulnerable to attack. Keyboards and displays are especially vulnerable attack vectors that criminals exploit in order to steal sensitive data. With SentryBay’s Armored Client fully verified and compatible with Stratodesk NoTouch OS, organizations that purchase can take advantage of its next level security benefits and be confident that their data is being securely wrapped within a micro-environment which neutralizes the impact of malware threats, in particular keylogging and screen scraping, wherever and however teams are working. About SentryBay SentryBay is a pioneer in technology that approaches security issues from a different – and more proactive – perspective. Endpoint data protection is essential to provide a secure, cloud-based IT ecosystem that avoids the weaknesses inherent in both technology and users. SentryBay’s “secure framework” within which applications can run – underpinned by multi-layered anti-keylogging technology –allows these weaknesses to be overcome. The company’s product is used by some of the world’s largest enterprises – from global banks and a central bank to small, medium and large enterprises.

Lenovo Delivers New Innovation for Resilient Edge Computing

Lenovo Infrastructure Solutions | September 07, 2021

Lenovo Infrastructure Solutions Group (ISG) announced it will be the first-to-market with VMware’s software solution for the edge running on the resilient ThinkSystem SE350 Edge Servers. The new solution will be delivered directly to customer edge sites with the VMware software solution pre-loaded on a pair of ruggedized and security enhanced ThinkSystem SE350. In addition, Lenovo also announced the enhancement of Lenovo Open Cloud Automation management software to automate the planning, deployment and ongoing management of datacenter cloud deployments all the way to edge sites. Organizations can now plan their data center cloud and edge infrastructure solutions using the same management software. Hybrid work is the next reality, accelerating the need for edge to cloud solutions and Lenovo is working to build smarter infrastructure solutions so customers can successfully navigate this hybrid workplace. “For better business continuity, improved applications and user experiences, hybrid cloud models are being deployed both in the cloud and at the edge. The new solution announced today supports this hybrid model,” said Charles Ferland, Vice President and General Manager, Edge Computing and Communication Service Providers at Lenovo ISG. “It can save up to half of the servers normally needed and takes full advantage of the built-in networking features of the ThinkSystem SE350 to further remove any other networking elements at the edge sites.” VMware's Software Solution for the edge Lenovo will be the first-to-market with VMware and its forthcoming software solution for the edge running on Lenovo’s ThinkSystem SE350. This solution will simplify networking with built-in switching and wireless connectivity, eliminating the need for external network devices at the edge and allowing for smoother and more seamless operation. VMware customers will soon be able to enjoy the same environment they want in their data center, directly at their edge locations, through ordering this integrated and pre-loaded bundle. “We’re excited to collaborate with Lenovo as customers are taking their innovation from the data center to the public cloud to the edge,” said Muneyb Minhazuddin, VP, Edge Computing, VMware. This new solution is ideal for remote sites that need to be able to process data closer to its creation and closer to users, including retail stores, manufacturing sites, and schools, to name a few. Because of the ruggedized nature of the ThinkSystem SE350, this solution will be able to sustain extreme temperatures and high levels of shock. In addition, the encrypted hard disks along with motion and tamper detection will be in place to help keep the data and device safe. Lenovo Open Cloud Automation Deployment of distant edge sites requires a management toolset that seamlessly allows organizations to automate tasks, without requiring specialized staff on-site. Lenovo has enhanced its Lenovo Open Cloud Automation software solution to now include edge-supported features, driving accelerated time to value for customers with cutting-edge management capabilities. This single interface automates the planning, deployment and ongoing lifecycle management of the physical and virtual infrastructure required to host cloud applications in the data center and at thousands of edge sites.​ Lenovo Open Cloud Automation solution has helped customers, such as T-Systems maintain its IT legacy and make it future-ready. T-Systems needed to save costs and modernize its infrastructure with an open, end-to-end automated platform that could host future workloads for customers on and off premises while maintaining its legacy environments. “Standard use cases are now 100% automated within the platform through LOC-A,” said Thomas Rumpf, CTO Private Cloud at T-Systems. “However, we are still able to customize services via highly automated blueprints, which has led to cost efficiency in the range of 30 to 40% for our clients.” About Lenovo Lenovo is a US$60 billion revenue Fortune Global 500 company serving customers in 180 markets around the world. Focused on a bold vision to deliver smarter technology for all, we are developing world-changing technologies that power (through devices and infrastructure) and empower (through solutions, services, and software) millions of customers every day and together create a more inclusive, trustworthy, and sustainable digital society for everyone, everywhere.
