Data port control for critical networks

Credant Technologies : 08 January, 2009  (New Product)
Protector from Credant provides control for data ports preventing information leakage from government and critical civilian networks
Credant Technologies has announced the launch of Credant Protector, its endpoint data leakage prevention solution that offers government agencies comprehensive device and wireless port control, as well as extensive optical media (CD/DVD) encryption capabilities. Credant Protector provides government agencies with an unprecedented level of protection for their sensitive data, allowing authorised government employees to utilise removable media to further the agency mission while eliminating the risk that sensitive data may be lost, stolen, or corrupted.

"Sensitive government data is a precious asset that must be protected," said Pete Morrison, Vice President for Credant. "The recent malicious code attack to the Department of Defence's (DoD) network using USB drives demonstrates that removable media can increase the vulnerability of sensitive government data. At the same time, removable media also enhances the government's ability to share information - an essential tool in protecting the homeland, supporting the warfighter, and improving the efficiency and effectiveness of government. The Credant Protector solution helps the government meet these mission-critical needs, allowing Information Technology (IT) administrators, rather than individual users, to control data ports."

Credant Protector provides the functionality to disable AutoRun/AutoPlay features for removable media suggested by the recent United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) activity notice, Malicious Code Spreading Through USB Flash Drive Devices (November 20, 2008). In addition, CREDANT Protector offers a number of key safety measures, including:

• Granular control - detects and restricts data transfers by device, device type, or serial number.
• Data awareness - inspects files by type; allows, blocks, or restricts the transfer of files to and from external storage devices.
• Extensive logging and reporting - intuitive management console provides unified management of policies, alerting preferences, logs, and custom reports.
• Flexible/intuitive policy management - defines policies for any domain, group, computer, or user.
• Built-in compliance policies - includes detailed configurations for achieving data security policies that are mapped to specific regulatory standards.
• Anti-hardware Keylogger - blocks both USB and PS/2 hardware keyloggers.

Credant Protector, powered by Safend, includes management features such as file shadowing, load balancing, management by domain, as well as options for large, matrixed government agencies to manage the entire deployment through a single server.
