The dangers surrounding information leakage are well known, and continue to gain significance in today's market
Rome, NY (PRWEB) August 27, 2009
ITT Corporation (NYSE:ITT) today announced that its file inspection application, PuriFile®, has been successfully integrated with Trusted Computer Solutions' (TCS) SecureOffice® Trusted Gateway System™ product. The combination of these two products allows for the enhanced rapid, multi-directional transfer of any data type between numerous security levels, such as unclassified, secret, secret releasable, and top secret/sensitive compartmented information networks.
ITT's PuriFile software is a file inspection application that performs deep analysis of various Microsoft Office file formats, and discovers information within and about files that would otherwise go un-noticed in typical review processes. TCS's Trusted Gateway System product is the most recent in a continuing series of government and commercial systems to use ITT's PuriFile application for deep content inspection of files before transfer.
"The ability to utilize PuriFile from within the Trusted Gateway System provides our users another layer of protection and security," stated Brad Wilson, vice president of product development at TCS. "Combined with the ease of having all virus scanning, dirty word searching, and content validation statuses available within the guard interface, data movement and tracking is highly streamlined."
"The dangers surrounding information leakage are well known, and continue to gain significance in today's market," said Scott Patrick, director of ITT's Cyber Assurance Department. "PuriFile automates many of the steps necessary to detect and correct these problems, thereby improving security, especially when mated with Trusted Gateway System."
The PuriFile inspection tool exists as a stand-alone product, but the availability of an Application Programming Interface (API) allows it to be easily incorporated into a wide variety of transfer and inspection systems. PuriFile also provides additional tools and mechanisms for easy integration into existing active directory systems for user identification. This integration capability is of greatest interest to customers requiring enterprise deployment of PuriFile, such as the recent purchase by the U.S. Department of Defense.
