Symantec has announced new additions to its Endpoint Encryption 7.0 system designed to help enterprises improve access control across a number of devices.
The security firm said that the updated software offers improved scalability, and a combination of access control and encryption tools allowing administrators to see any attempt to access a device.
Administrators are provided with an easy to use interface as well as recovery tools to allow them to access devices remotely.
"The number one way in which companies are losing confidential information is through theft or loss of laptops and storage devices," said Steve Morton, vice president of product management at Symantec.
"As a growing array of endpoint devices are granted access to corporate resources, the need to properly ensure security and encryption on each of these endpoints is more prevalent than ever, as these technologies will help businesses mitigate the increasing risk of information loss."
Symantec Endpoint Encryption now supports Novell eDirectory and includes disk recovery and other administration tools to make risk management and access rights simple and easy.
The firm has also improved encryption for removable devices, which represent a significant route for thefts and losses, according to Symantec.
The system is designed to protect all data on devices including USB, FireWire, Compact Flash and media players.
