Protecting intellectual property and gaining customer insight are top concerns for financial services companies
Concord, MA (PRWEB) March 20, 2006 –-
The world’s first outbound and inbound email monitoring appliance designed to stop data loss, protect privacy, and manage inappropriate employee behavior for organizations and departments with 5000 or fewer employees was announced today by InBoxer (http://www.inboxer.com), a leader in language-based email filtering.
The InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance, which is currently in test nationally at financial services, health care, and other organizations, can be installed quickly and without a re-design of a corporate network or a lengthy assessment. Compliance officers, corporate legal counsels and HR professionals can quickly analyze email content and find risky messages with minimal IT involvement. The Anti-Risk Appliance can be used to review previously processed messages (e-Discovery) and users can create alarms in real-time to identify messages as they are sent.
“Protecting intellectual property and gaining customer insight are top concerns for financial services companies,” said Richard Fleischman, president and founder of New York-based RFA, which serves over 300 hedge funds globally with both on-site and remote IT services. “The InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance will give our hedge fund managers the ability to protect their assets and to analyze what their clients are saying.”
“The confidentiality and safeguarding of our donors’ information is a critical component of our overall data security strategy. By protecting our donors we help to ensure their privacy and at the same time provide a blood supply which we use to meet the needs of 50 plus hospitals we serve across Southern California. Many businesses and organizations like ours need to comply with regulatory issues and provide data security,” said Andy Thoren, IT Manager for the San Diego Blood Bank. “The InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance gives us the real-time response and reporting flexibility we need to make sure that all of our employees and business processes adhere to our electronic usage policy.”
While the InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance is scaleable enough to support large organizations, it was designed specifically for the needs of departments and small to mid-sized organizations that do not want to change their corporate infrastructure. Once proper permissions are granted, customers can complete installations in minutes by plugging the appliance into the local network. End users simply log-into the web-based interface and see a dashboard that is updated in real-time using AJAX technologies. End-users can use pre-defined displays or they can easily customize the display in real-time. Users can also create reports and alarms just by instructing the appliance to memorize the display.
“There are more than one-million U.S. establishments with 100-5000 employees,” said Roger Matus, InBoxer chief executive. “They have the same concerns about protecting intellectual property, maintaining personal privacy, and managing employee behavior as the bigger firms. But, until now, automated systems have not met their needs. With the InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance, these companies can quickly and easily protect themselves with the flexibility needed to allow compliance, legal, and HR professionals to see exactly what they need.”
InBoxer finds risky messages that other systems cannot, because of its award-winning, proprietary, language-based technology that rapidly classifies messages by risk type. With the InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance, organizations can monitor a broad range of risks, including the following:
- Objectionable / Acceptable Use
- Personal content
- Privacy violations (personally identifiable information), such as account, social security, and credit card numbers
- Confidential documents and intellectual property leaks
- Medical terminology (to show HIPAA compliance)
- Productivity wasters
- Excessive network traffic
- Violations of communications restrictions.
A demonstration of the InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance is available at the http://www.EnronEmail.com web site. More than 500,000 emails sent to and from 176 Enron company employees from 2000 to 2002 -- and released by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) -- are categorized and available for easy, free, on-line searching using the appliance.
The InBoxer Anti-Risk Appliance comes in three configurations with prices starting at less than $5000 and comes with a 21-day money-back guarantee. Shipments will begin in April.
