By | January 23, 2006

PHILADELPHIA Jan. 23, 2006–Safend, a leader in endpoint security, announced today that Pechanga Resort and Casino, located in Temecula, California, will utilize Safend Protector and Safend Auditor to secure their 1500 network computers from potential data theft and virus invasion.

“As the largest resort and casino in California, we handle a high volume of private financial and personal data,” said Gilbert Mendoza, Network Security Administrator for Pechanga Resort and Casino. “Of all the solutions we researched, none offered the granularity of Safend; enabling us to define who in our organization will be connected to devices such as printers, iPods, DVD drives, etc. Other solutions only allowed us to turn everything on or off. Safend allows flexibility while providing us with device monitoring capabilities.”

Safend Protector provides comprehensive and tamper-proof endpoint security software, controlling data access from the physical ports of enterprise endpoints, including USB, FireWire, WiFi, Bluetooth, Infrared (IrDA), and CD/DVDs. Included with Safend Protector is Safend Auditor, a free analysis tool that provides a list of all devices that are or have been recently connected.

“We´re very pleased to provide Pechanga Resort and Casino with a solution to their security concerns,” says Dor Skuler VP of Business Development for Safend. “Given the unique issues they face in the gaming industry, their feedback as a part of our design partner program will prove invaluable in our continuing efforts to meet evolving customer needs.

The resort is California´s first resort and casino to be awarded the AAA Four Diamond rating, retaining the honor for four years running. Pechanga Resort and Casino offers 522 luxurious hotel rooms and suites, non-stop casino action, eight exceptional restaurants, entertainment and health club.
