enSilo Partners with Coalfire to Enhance PCI DSS and HIPAA Security Programs for Endpoint Security Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- enSilo, the company that protects endpoints pre- and post-infection in real time, announced today that the enSilo Endpoint Security Platform had a technical controls review conducted by Coalfire, leading provider of independent, comprehensive cybersecurity advisory services, to deliver stringent security measures required under PCI DSS and HIPAA regulations. This independent technical controls review assures businesses across healthcare, retail and financial services that enSilo's innovative security platform can help them defend employees and data from sophisticated, financially motivated ransomware, malware, cybercrime and disruptions and comply with PCI and HIPAA regulations.

enSilo's single lightweight security agent gives customers comprehensive pre-infection Next Generation Anti-Virus (NGAV) as a first line of defense and post-infection automated, blocking-enabled Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) as a last line of defense, enabling security teams to contain attacks, prevent data leakage and block malware communications in real time to stop post-infection impact.

Coalfire details enSilo's security capabilities and features in two reports available for download here: PCI DSS, HIPAA.

"Organizations that must comply with HIPAA and PCI DSS regulations face unique challenges from cyber threats, such as ransomware and zero day malware, introducing new ways to steal electronic protected health information and critical cardholder data," said Kennet Westby, chief strategist, Coalfire. "Coalfire's rigorous review of the enSilo Endpoint Security Platorm concluded that this technology fulfills crucial requirements protecting health, financial and payment data through transmission, processing and storage."


"From attackers' viewpoints, banking, retail and healthcare targets are 'where the money is' – one intrusion into inherently interconnected health records or financial systems can spearhead far-reaching damage with legal and regulatory consequences," said Elad Horn, VP of Products, enSilo. "Endpoint devices are the first assets targeted, whether these are employees' laptops, point-of-sale systems or medical equipment. These devices need strong pre- and post-infection security protection that does not slow performance or productivity. Coalfire's technical controls, reviewed against PCI DSS and HIPAA requirements, demonstrate enSilo's commitment to comprehensive security meeting the protection and operational needs of demanding industries."

The enSilo Endpoint Security Platform is a distributed, integrated suite of products working in concert to offer real-time protection against advanced targeted attacks, malware's attempts to exfiltrate, tamper or alter data, and ransomware attempts to encrypt or destroy files data. When malicious activity is detected, the enSilo Endpoint Security Platform isolates and blocks threats in real-time without impacting other legitimate programs and business processes.
