Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 22, 2008
Aurora, a leading IT company offering state-of-the-art security and compliance solutions for business critical applications, has partnered with Lumension Security™, Inc. to deliver comprehensive data protection and endpoint protection for its customers.
Lumension Security is a recognized, global security software company that provides unified protection and control of enterprise endpoints for more than 5,100 customers and 14 million nodes worldwide.
By combining Aurora's state-of-the-art data security and compliance solutions with Lumension Security's best-of-breed, policy-based solutions, customers will be able to mitigate risks and fully protect business critical data while ensuring compliance needs are met.
"Protecting customers' critical data goes a long way, especially in today's fast changing threat landscape," said Aurora CEO Philip de Souza. "It's not about protecting just what's visible to the eye, but ensuring organizations proactively and consistently assess threats within the environment, mitigate risks, and comprehensively guard data from theft and loss. By adding Lumension Security's superior endpoint and data protection solutions, we are poised to deliver an end to end protection that very few companies can deliver today."
"Aurora is a very unique partner in that they understand the evolving security landscape and how cybercriminals are changing their methodologies to steal corporate information," said Scott Van Horne, vice president of Sales for Lumension Security. "By adding Lumension Security to their security arsenal, they are offering their customers better means of locking down and preventing data theft and loss on portable devices, removable media, and storage devices. Lumension Security also provides another layer of protection through its integrated vulnerability management that covers threat assessment, remediation, validation and compliance reporting on top of data protection. Our goal is to help customers prevent brand damage through the loss of any confidential, proprietary information, a goal we share with Aurora."
Data breach remains the leading cause of financial loss for organizations, costing an average of $197 per record, according to the Ponemon Institute Study 2007. The average data breach could cost upwards of $6.3 million per incident and potential lost business opportunity to the tune of $128 per leaked customer record. Statistics show that 75 percent of Fortune 1000 companies fell victim to accidental and/or malicious data leakage.
"Working with Lumension Security offers a new capability for Aurora to address the critical issue of data loss," said de Souza. "Lumension Security was awarded a US patent for its data shadowing technology, which enables data leakage prevention (DLP) on its flagship Sanctuary Device Control product for endpoint security. Combined with Aurora's security solutions for email and web traffic, we are now able to offer our customers an end-to-end solution for all of their security needs."
