RSA Data Loss Prevention embedded in Cisco service offerings

Cisco : 25 June, 2009  (New Product)
Services for the protection of data in motion now offered with RSA data loss prevention technology from Cisco
RSA Data Loss Prevention embedded in Cisco service offerings
Building on its Collaborate with Confidence announcement in April, Cisco has unveiled a set of solutions that concentrate on data security across corporate networks. In a world where business trends are revolving increasingly around collaboration, Cloud Computing and mobility, the latest Cisco security solutions help businesses protect sensitive customer and employee data while enforcing regulatory compliance and protecting their brands.

As part of the announcement, Cisco has partnered with RSA, the Security Division of EMC, to introduce data loss prevention capabilities that are engineered to integrate into the industry-leading Cisco IronPort e-mail security products. Cisco also announced new functionality in its Cisco IronPort Web security gateway designed to block the loss of sensitive data via the Web and FTP and a new consultative business security service that helps businesses design a preventive strategy aligning people, business processes and technology.

This announcement focuses on protecting data in motion for businesses. It addresses prevailing data-loss risks inherent in e-mail and Web-based communications, risks that are not going away. In the fall, Cisco announced findings from a global security study on data loss. Data loss through e-mail was reported to be a top concern for organizations, and seven of 10 information technology professionals around the world said that employee access to unauthorized applications and Web sites (including unsanctioned social media sites, music download software, and online shopping venues) resulted in as many as half of their companies' data-loss incidents. To help businesses protect their e-mail and Web communications, Cisco's latest offerings include:

* Cisco IronPort E-mail Security With RSA Data Loss Prevention Technology: Cisco IronPort is building on the policy management, high-performance scanning, and reporting framework of its e-mail security gateways to embed market-leading data loss prevention (DLP) technology from RSA. RSA DLP data-classification technology will be made available through a fully integrated subscription software feature on Cisco's IronPort's e-mail security products and services. The new solution provides accurate and easy-to-use content classification designed to discover and protect sensitive data before it leaves the enterprise through e-mail. More than100 predefined out-of-the-box security and governance policies are maintained and updated by RSA's Information Policy and Classification Research Team. When combined with Cisco IronPort's high-performance content-scanning engine, intuitive workflow, reporting and auditing capabilities optimized for handling DLP violations, RSA Email DLP for Cisco IronPort is a complete DLP solution for data in motion over e-mail. In addition, customers may extend these capabilities to data at rest and data in use through a tight integration with the RSA DLP Suite, enabling data loss prevention with unified management and a common information classification and policy framework for data at rest, in motion and in use. The addition of DLP functionality to Cisco IronPort's antispam, antivirus and encryption capabilities is designed to provide Cisco IronPort's customers with the most comprehensive, market-leading efficacy solution for inbound and outbound e-mail control and security.

* Cisco IronPort S-Series With Data Loss Prevention: Cisco IronPort Web security appliances enforce data-security policy over webmail, blogs and social networking sites, as well as FTP. Integration with third-party DLP products enables advanced content scanning and policy enforcement. In addition to protecting against user-initiated data loss, Cisco IronPort Web Reputation Filters and other innovative features combine to target data-stealing malware from entering the network and blocking 'phone home' data connections from existing malware.

* Cisco Data Loss Prevention Risk Assessment Service: This professional service helps businesses understand their vulnerability to data loss and designs prevention strategies that align people, processes and technology. The service consists of three phases: 1) a review of data loss prevention policy, process and requirements; 2) an assessment of the data loss prevention posture; and 3) data analysis and recommendations. The service helps businesses meet regulatory, industry and environmental requirements by identifying specific gaps between desired or required DLP capabilities and their actual postures.
