In securing mobile devices, ZENworks Endpoint Security Management is superior to typical personal firewall technologies which operate only in the application layer or as a firewall-hook driver. ZENworks Security Client includes a Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) driver for each network interface card (NIC), providing protection against malicious traffic from the moment traffic enters the PC.
Security decisions and system performance are optimized when security implementations operate at the lowest appropriate layer of the protocol stack. ZENworks Security Client includes a Network Driver Interface Specification (NDIS) driver for each network interface card (NIC), providing protection against malicious traffic from the lowest levels of the NDIS driver stack by means of Adaptive Port Blocking (stateful packet inspection) technology. This approach protects against protocol-based attacks including unauthorized port scans, SYN Flood, NetBIOS, and DDOS attacks.
Additionally, ZENworks Endpoint Security Management provides users the ability, based on location, to trust or not trust specific hosts by IP or MAC address. Similarly, networking structures that use Multicast or broadcast packets can be accommodated by allowing for certain broadcast types, such as IP multicast, ARP, ICMP, 802.1x, etc.
