Endoint protection to secure against data leakage

Lumension Security : 05 August, 2008  (New Product)
Sactuary Endpoint Protection and Data Protection Suite from Lumension Security prevents the leakage of corporate data from removable storage media
Lumension Security has announced the general availability of its Sanctuary Endpoint Protection and Data Protection suite. The new release helps prevent data loss and theft by extending its powerful encrypting capabilities beyond storage devices and removable media to now include CD/DVD media to protect easily accessible endpoints.

Data breach remains the leading cause of financial loss for organizations, costing an average of $197 per record, according to a 2007 study by the Ponemon Institute. The average data breach could cost upwards of $6.3 million per incident with potential for lost business opportunity to the tune of $128 per leaked customer record. In order to prevent accidental and malicious loss of confidential data, Sanctuary provides complete control over endpoints and clear visibility into where data is stored and where it is going.

To enforce portable media usage policies, the Sanctuary suite allows administrators to require storage device encryption using built-in Sanctuary technology or PGP Corporation encryption solutions. PGP enterprise data protection solutions help organizations comply with FIPS-140-2 standards and provide centralized encryption key management and support for large secondary hard drives. Using PGP encryption with the Sanctuary technology, administrators can easily establish and enforce granular encryption policies for removable storage devices, review device usage logs, and monitor the content of data transferred to and from devices.

"Protecting data is more important than ever given the mounting security risks associated with today's mobile workforce and compliance mandates. At all times, we need to know that no confidential data leaves the premises that should not and no malware infects our network via virus-laden device or rogue application," Rob Israel, CIO, John Lincoln Health Network. "Lumension Security Endpoint Protection and Data Protection Suite allows us to be proactive, yet flexible with the data encryption and enforcement of policies around employee device and application use. What's more, this powerful solution extends our control over CD and DVD data by allowing us to reduce risk of data loss and theft by encrypting and protecting easily accessible information while enabling end user productivity."

Sanctuary Delivers Key Benefits:.

* Prevents Data Loss on CD/DVD - Extends data security beyond USB and other portable devices to include CD/DVD media. Enforces encryption for data written to CD/DVD based on user or user group, with portability to non-Sanctuary machines for secure information sharing outside of the organisation.
* Enforces CD/DVD Encryption for Removable Storage Devices - Users can simply use Secure Volume Browser to define the data they wish to encrypt and burn to the media, and then burn the encrypted data onto the media. Sanctuary Secure Volume Browser uses built-in CD/DVD burning technology, rather than third party commercial burning software.



* Recognises PGP Whole Disk Encryption (WDE) on USB storage - Recognises PGP WDE on USB storage devices and applies policy and logging appropriately, including patented Shadowing to audit data transferred to/from removable storage devices.

"The growing proliferation of inexpensive, portable media and storage devices are leaving organisations more exposed to data loss and theft," said Mike Wittig, President and Chief Technology Officer, Lumension Security. "This type of loss can cost businesses millions of dollars in lost business and customer loyalty, not to mention legal issues. In order to help enterprises shore up their defences against data leakage, Sanctuary suite prevents data loss and leakage through unauthorized removable devices. This new suite is designed to enable business productivity and ensure high levels of security by allowing organizations to establish policies that restrict unauthorised executables and control access and use of USB, CD/DVD, and other storage devices."
