Data Loss Prevention partnership

Credant Technologies : 20 November, 2008  (Company News)
Safend and Credant jointly create "Credant Protector" for securing end points and preventing enterprise data leakage
Credant Technologies, the market leader in data protection solutions, and Safend, a leading provider of enterprise endpoint Data Leakage Prevention (DLP) solutions, today announced a partnership that will provide Credant customers with an unprecedented level of protection for their sensitive data. The partnership adds Safend's endpoint data leakage monitoring and protection technologies to Credant's data protection portfolio. Powered by Safend technology, Credant's new offering, Credant Protector, strengthens its existing security portfolio through the addition of comprehensive device and wireless port control solutions and extensive optical media (CD/DVD) encryption capabilities from Safend.

"In a climate where data can be downloaded to a USB stick or Smartphone in a matter of seconds, it has become imperative that enterprises protect their endpoints against these vulnerabilities," said Chris Burchett, co-founder and Chief Technical Officer at Credant Technologies. "It is a natural partnership for Credant, one of the world's leading data protection providers, to partner with a market leader such as Safend. The Safend Protector solution fits nicely into our portfolio, offering our customers the ability to secure their most sensitive information stored on CD-DVD drives and proactively manage port access."

According to the 2008 Safend survey, forty-four percent of organizations surveyed have only moderate policies for endpoint and port security in place and nearly 25 percent have no policies set at all. This further demonstrates the need for a comprehensive and unified solution for device and port control and data protection.

"Credant's decision to partner with Safend is further validation that our endpoint DLP solution is the leading port and device control product in the market today," said Gil Sever, founder and CEO at Safend. "This partnership offers exciting new opportunities for Safend and Credant to reach new customers as well as those in Credant's large client portfolio. We are confident that the power of the integrated Safend solution will further enable users to protect their sensitive data from loss, theft and malicious attacks."

According to a recent eWeek article by Brian Prince: "If a laptop, CD or Smartphone is stolen, encryption can be the difference between a data breach and a close call. With so much sensitive corporate and personal information at stake, a clear encryption strategy is a vital part of data protection." Today, more and more organizations are not only recognizing the need for encryption capabilities, but also the role that a comprehensive approach to data leakage prevention serves in keeping data safe on portable devices.

'Sensitive data is not simply confined to home PCs and laptops; in today's extended enterprise sensitive data travels on everything portable from Smartphones to USB sticks to iPods. In order to ensure data integrity, organizations need to look for a combined encryption and port and device control solution,' said Eric Ogren, founder and principal analyst of the Ogren Group. 'With this evolving market dynamic and clear customer need in mind, a comprehensive information protection program based on encryption and data leakage prevention will enable organizations to reduce the risk of data breaches and theft via portable storage devices.'

Driven by Safend's technology, Credant Protector delivers unprecedented encryption and device control functionality for organizations in any industry or market. Using this solution, organizations will have access to the industry's most comprehensive, secure and easy-to-use endpoint data protection and data leakage prevention technology. Credant Protector also offers the ability to monitor traffic in real time and apply customized, highly-granular security policies over all physical, wireless and storage interfaces. Credant Protector works in conjunction with Credant Mobile Guardian (CMG), the only security system that can encrypt and secure data on mobile devices across multiple, diverse platforms from a single, web-based console.
