CoSoSys, developer of Endpoint Security, Data Loss Prevention and portable media security software, and Astaro, IT security specialist from Germany, today announced that they have signed a definitive agreement for Astaro to acquire the Romanian company and integrate CoSoSys’ complete staff into their team.

While continuing to launch new products and improve their existing range of endpoint and mobile data security solutions, the two companies will collaborate on integrating CoSoSys’ device control, data loss prevention and endpoint security solution into Astaro’s Unified Threat Management solution, the Astaro Security Gateway, and on providing a level of overall security beyond any solution currently on the market.

CoSoSys, a leading developer of endpoint security and portable storage device applications, announces the availability of My Endpoint Protector (MyEPP), the first Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application to deliver Data Loss Prevention and device control “in the cloud”. MyEPP is designed to help companies manage the internal and external security threats created by the broad availability and use of portable data storage devices without overtaxing stretched IT resources.

MyEPP uses a policy-based approach to enable businesses to manage how data can be used on all endpoints – Desktops, Laptops, Netbooks and more – from a single centralized web console, no matter where those endpoints are located. Find out more here.
