With the 4.0 release of Enterprise DLP, we are the first vendor to combine the analysis of identity, event context, and data content to precisely detect data at risk based on the relationship between the user, recipient, communication channel and the data content.
San Mateo, CA (PRWEB) January 28, 2009
NextLabs®, Inc., the leading provider of policy-driven information risk management software for Global 5000 enterprises today announced the latest release of Enterprise DLP, a data protection software suite that addresses the challenges of confidentiality, compliance, and data loss for highly collaborative enterprises.
Traditionally, companies have needed to implement and manage several independent proprietary technologies and multiple sets of manual policies and procedures to protect data. This piecemeal approach is ineffective and costly for companies who rely on efficient collaboration between employees, partners, and customers. With this latest release of Enterprise DLP companies can now have a comprehensive solution with a single set of policies to proactively protect data as it is used, shared and stored based on user identity, business process context, and data content. Enterprise DLP 4.0 offers an integrated suite of applications to address:
Endpoint Data Loss Prevention
Proactive prevention of data loss that occurs through removable media (USB, CD/DVD-R, Bluetooth, FireWire, and others) and networks channels (email, IM, web, ftp, etc.). Provides policy enforcement based on identity, context and content to prevent data loss without getting in the way of legitimate business collaboration.
Application and Device Control
Allows organizations to safeguard data by whitelisting approved executable or software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and USB or FireWire removable devices such as flash drives or network adapters. Granular policy can limit the set of applications that can be used by different roles to access, edit, or distribute specific classes of data and limit storage of a sensitive data to approved removable devices.
Role Based Access and Document Control
Control access and use of documents on File Servers, Microsoft SharePoint, Linux servers and workstations, and Microsoft Windows desktops and laptops. Granular document permissions can limit duplication, file sharing, clipboard actions, printing, and screen capture and control documents using access expiration, file tagging, file encryption, and hidden data removal (metadata cleansing).
Unified Communications Control
Control sharing of information across communication and collaboration channels including e-mail, IM, Microsoft SharePoint, Microsoft Office Communicator, and Microsoft LiveMeeting. Flexible policy prevents sharing of data with unauthorized recipients, without limiting legitimate collaboration activity.
Enterprise DLP is able to make end users more productive by eliminating manual procedures and allowing users to self-remediate using Policy Assistants. Policy Assistants interact with the user, warning them of possible mistakes and automating data protection remediation workflows. The product includes several prebuilt Policy Assistants, such as data classification, encryption, Microsoft RMS, hidden data removal, and others. This user-centric approach makes end-users more productive and improves user adoption. Other solutions take an administrator-centric approach requiring costly incident management processes that hinder business productivity and frustrate end-users.
Enterprise DLP brings together four data protection applications on a single policy server, reducing management and audit costs by four times. "With the 4.0 release of Enterprise DLP, we are the first vendor to combine the analysis of identity, event context, and data content to precisely detect data at risk based on the relationship between the user, recipient, communication channel and the data content." stated Andy Han, NextLabs' VP & GM of Products. "Other existing solutions are unaware of identity and lack automated workflow to help users, which leads to deployments with too many false-positives and poor end-user acceptance."
