Data Loss Prevention

Endpoint Protector’s core feature set is built around advanced DLP features such as deep packet inspection to break encryption for the purpose of directly inspecting content for sensitive information as it leaves the network.

Which features are available in Endpoint Protector depends on the modules purchased; they have seperate modules for device control, content-aware protection, enforced encryption, and eDiscovery.

CurrentWare’s data loss prevention software is focused on USB control to prevent data leaks to removable media devices, web category filtering to block web-based data egress points, and user activity monitoring to identify high-risk user behavior such as attempts to use blocked peripheral devices.

Employee Monitoring

While Endpoint Protector is an excellent DLP tool, its lack of monitoring features leave a significant gap in your data loss prevention strategy—detecting insider threats.

Without clear visibility into employee computer activity your organization is at risk of data loss to high-risk computer usage such as using unauthorized applications and visiting malicious websites.

Web Filtering

Web filtering is an essential component of any  DLP strategy. Blocking high-risk websites such as unauthorized cloud storage services and malicious websites ensures that data is not leaked to these egress points.

Unfortunately, Endpoint Protector’s web filtering capabilities are limited. While the Content Aware Protection module can be used to deny access to URLs and domains this method of web filtering is not scalable as you must manually add new websites as they emerge.

CurrentWare’s web filter BrowseControl includes a web category filtering database with millions of URLs across hundreds of categories including social media, file hosting, and virus-infected sites.

In terms of setup and deployment, Endpoint Protector’s greatest strength is its near 1:1 feature parity between Windows, Mac, and Linux, whereas CurrentWare is only available for Windows machines. This operating system diversity makes Endpoint Protector a great option for multi-OS environments.

Endpoint Protector Reviews

What Endpoint Protector Customers Like

Granularity & Compatibility

Endpoint Protector has compatibility with all major operating systems. Endpoint Protector’s granularity on who or which computer gets what policies makes it easy to apply Endpoint Protector to many use cases.

Source: Capterra Reviewer, 2021

The best part of endpoint protector is that it works on all three platforms i.e., Windows, MAC, and Linux. Also, there is a single pane from which you can manage everything.

Source: G2 Reviewer, 2022

In the Mac space, CoSoSys is probably the market leader, because of the level of detail that they’ve put into the platform is very significant.

What Endpoint Protector Customers Are Mixed About


The after-sales service is not that great. We faced some issues with the solution and want some customization for the same but [we were] not getting support.

Source: G2 Reviewer, 2022

Technical support has been fantastic. They get back to me quickly. They’re willing to schedule video conferencing so that I can share my screen. They’re willing to bring on a level-two support technician to look at the details. They’re able to supply everything for me support-wise.

Source: PeerSpot Reviewer, 2021

There is a language issue occasionally and you have to over explain things, but it depends at the end of the day what type of solution you are looking for and what their commercials look like.

What Endpoint Protector Customers Dislike


The learning curve is pretty steep to get the policies setup correctly. Make sure you team has someone to set this up and have the machine to host the software. That was the only piece we were missing is we had to scramble to find a machine powerful enough to host the solution.

Source: G2 Reviewer, 2020

The initial setup was complex…It took more than a month to deploy because I had to source all of the equipment. They have a very good “how-to” document on deploying the software but once we got to that point, it was not the software causing a problem but rather, it was a hardware compatibility issue.
