SentryBay, the United Kingdom-based cybersecurity software company announces today that it has added to its Armored Client products a solution designed to address the client-side security gaps of Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop and Windows 365 – while harnessing the strengths of Intune.
Users of endpoint devices that connect to any virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) system are at risk of cybersecurity attacks, particularly from keylogging and screen capture malware, such as AgentTesla.
This new version, ‘Armored Client for AVD & W365,’ combines SentryBay’s patented EntryProtect technology, with an agent that secures VDI sessions. The agent uses the features inherent in Microsoft Intune UEM to enforce the use of enterprise-grade security tools on each endpoint. This means users experience seamless security, reducing risk of a breach even via screen capture malware. A unique whitelisting facility for web conferencing software such as Microsoft Teams provides full protection of the session without any compromise to user experience.
SentryBay is targeting this product at information officers and security teams using, or administering, Microsoft VDI solutions across multiple sectors including insurance, finance, health care and call centers. These industries will benefit from the efficacy of the Armored Client in meeting compliance and regulatory requirements
Among its advantages, the new version of Armored Client is active from the moment that a user logs into the device, and it requires no user interaction. Security teams can deploy it through a simple MSI file via Intune, or other UEM platforms.
