“Because our large enterprise customers have challenged us to support myriad use cases and requirements, IQProtector delivers powerful yet extremely manageable Information Protection," said Yuval Eldar, Founder, Secure Islands.

Secure Islands today announced general availability of IQProtector™ 5.0, the industry’s leading Information Protection and Control (IPC) solution. Version 5.0 breaks new ground with its Data Interception Architecture, an open framework that enables more data to be immunized faster with 100% accuracy, based on enterprise-wide policies, independently of users, devices or platforms. Other enhancements include secure collaboration capabilities and a customizable user interface. With this release, Secure Islands delivers an industry first - a single, scalable, policy driven platform that enables organizations to classify and protect data the moment it is created, and from any user, application, location or device.

Secure Islands will be demonstrating IQProtector 5.0 at RSA Conference in San Francisco, California from April 20-23, 2015, Booth #127

Introducing Data Interception
Data Interceptors can be implemented extremely close to any data source and inspect all files that are generated or in-transit through the source with minimum dependency on the end-user or the device that uses this data. Upon inspection, Interceptors instantly immunize the data based on the organization’s classification and protection policy.

Secure Islands have made data interceptors available for:

  •     Application Interceptors are integrated into business applications at the organizations to immunize files generated or transiting through them. Interceptors are available for email servers such as Microsoft Exchange or Enterprise Content Management systems such as OpenText, and SharePoint.
  •     Cloud Interceptors immunize files uploaded or downloaded to storage, collaboration and business applications such as Box, Dropbox, Share Point online, SalesForce, ServiceNow and more.
  •     Server Interceptor: Provides server-mode data event interception and locally performed Classification and Protection.
  •     Endpoint: Intercepts data for files created or used on the device - file, web, application and email events, and locally performed Classification and Protection.

Secure Collaboration
Enhancements to Secure Islands’ secure collaboration capabilities include the ability for email users to apply protection to messages and attachments with ad-hoc permissions for recipients. Additionally, using the Exchange Interceptor and leveraging Azure Rights Management, Classification and Protection policies can be enforced outside the organization, without having to compromise or expose user identities or keys..

Enhanced Management, Improved User Experience
Finally, the Secure Islands IQProtector 5.0 features a completely new user interface, delivering better usability and a vastly improved user experience. The interface can be customized with organizational background color and logo and allows organizations to customize security message text according to their needs.

“Because our large enterprise customers have challenged us to support myriad use cases and requirements, IQProtector delivers powerful yet extremely manageable Information Protection purpose-built for today’s borderless enterprises,” said Yuval Eldar, Founder, Secure Islands. “Credit Suisse was one of those customers, which chose to invest in Secure Islands once it became clear IQProtector makes data loss, leakage or theft irrelevant. While there will never be a single silver bullet for security, Secure Islands customers have quickly become are unappealing targets for cyber criminals.”

IQProtector 5.0 is now generally available. Secure Islands will demonstrate the capabilities of IQProtector 5.0 at RSA Conference in San Francisco, April 20-23, 2015, Stand #127.
