WASHINGTON -- Reconnex, the leader in data leak prevention appliances, and BigFix, the only real-time IT service delivery platform that automates and optimizes enterprise computer security, today announced a partnership to supply massively scalable, real-time data leak prevention solutions that provide global enterprises with complete data leak protection that spans the network down to the endpoint. Together, Reconnex and BigFix will provide highly adaptive data leak protection (DLP) solutions that continuously enforce compliance on every desktop, server, and mobile laptop, while simultaneously slashing costs of deployment and administration.
"An increasingly hostile threat environment, regulatory pressures, and operational demands on IT are challenging organizations to address data security issues in a timely, effective manner, said Amrit Williams, CTO of BigFix. Pervasive, real-time visibility and control from the network to the endpoint, as well as for mobile devices enables organizations to gain control and agility over an overwhelming and previously unmanageable problem.
BigFix and Reconnex complete data leak protection technologies enable total management, control, and administration of hundreds of thousands of endpoints in real time. The combined solutions will provide unified policy and administration for all areas of data loss data in use, data in motion, and data at rest. An intelligent content-aware agent can inspect data transferred to USB and other endpoint ports in real time. If a policy violation occurs, the user will be warned or the activity blocked.
Enforcing all endpoints is a very complex problem. Employees want to use data in the most efficient way whether its copying data to a USB device or sending sensitive data via IM or WebMail. Simply cutting off access to all endpoints and limiting network access would result in loss of productivity, said Dr. Ratinder Paul Singh Ahuja, CTO of Reconnex. Together with BigFix, we can deliver an endpoint DLP solution that meets the scalability needs of global enterprises, while leveraging best-in-class incident workflow and network-based prevention.
