secRMM fits into the System Center architecture since it does not require its own backend services unlike other DLP solutions that require their own databases and servers. In addition to ConfigMgr integration, it offers integration points with System Center Operations Manager (SCOM), Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS), Microsoft Intune (via ConfigMgr hybrid mode), Microsoft Rights Management Services (RMS) and Microsoft Azure (via HyperV/RemoteFx).

“As early adopters of the secRMM product, I can tell you it has worked flawlessly since day one. The support we have received is top notch and this product is so easy to deploy and maintain. We knew we had to control our USB device environment and secRMM does exactly that and provides excellent logging of all activity,” said Gary J. Martino, director, information security, West Development, LLC (San Diego, CA).
“secRMM has been a vital tool to our security minded customer base,” says Mike McCandless, VP, sales and marketing, Apricorn, Inc. “Besides being easy to setup and deploy, secRMM is an exceptionally versatile DLP tool and a must have (irreplaceable) addition to management and policy enforcement. The ability to control sensitive data and provide a complete audit trail has been invaluable for many of our customers.“
secRMM can be deployed/installed directly from ConfigMgr or Active Directory via Group Policy Object (GPO). secRMM policies can apply to both computer/device and user collections. It can be downloaded from the firm’s website, and has a 30-day fully functional free trial.
