Q How does your product help in protecting sensitive data effectively & easily?
Our product features specialized modules which clients can pick and choose from based on their needs:
Content Aware Protection allows companies to decide which sensitive data can leave computers by creating policies based on predefined content or compliance regulations. It also logs and reports transfers of important documents. By enabling the Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) functionality, it is possible to inspect network traffic at an endpoint level, block access to specific websites, or whitelist specific domains or URLs.
Device Control is the most granular solution of its kind on the market, allowing administrators to block or limit the use of portable storage devices based on criteria such as device type or serial number as well as based on time or network policies.
Enforced Encryption automatically encrypts any USB devices connected to network endpoints, ensuring data can only be saved on encrypted devices.
eDiscovery offers the possibility to scan sensitive data at rest stored on employees’ endpoints based on specific file types, predefined content, Regular Expressions, GDPR or HIPAA-protected content, and more. Based on the scan results, remediation actions can be taken such as encrypting or deleting data.
