Guide to protecting data in transit.

Network Box : 20 May, 2008  (New Product)
Free guide available from Network Box on how to reduce the risk of data loss for confidential information in transit
Companies can reduce the risk of losing their confidential data thanks to a new guide from managed security company, Network Box. The Guide to Safe Data Transit provides quick, easy-to-understand tips that help businesses protect their confidential information.

Recommendations in the guide include: using the right kind of remote access; the need for sandboxing when using third-party terminals, such as hotel and internet café terminals; encrypting portable devices, such as CDs, DVDs and USB sticks; encrypting FTP and the need to phase it out in favour of secure FTP, IPSec or SSLs; the need for businesses to draft data appropriate encryption policies; and risks posed by https and http websites.

Not only is data loss damaging to the reputations of the people and companies involved, it can have other far-reaching implications, such as leaving businesses open to financial attacks from hackers, or causing intellectual property to land in the hands of competitors. Employees themselves also have reason to worry, with the proposal of legislation that could see individuals who negligently disclose personal information imprisoned for two years.

Simon Heron, Internet Security Analyst, Network Box, says: "Data loss is grabbing the headlines like never before but the frustrating thing from a security perspective is that many of these breaches could have been prevented by using readily-available technology and simple common sense.

"The guide gives businesses practical advice on how they can ensure the safe transfer of data so that they don't become the next high-profile story."

The guide can be accessed from the Network Box web site.
