EMERYVILLE, Calif. -- BigFix® Inc., the only real-time IT service delivery platform that automates and optimizes enterprise computer security and management, today launched BigFix Data Leak Prevention (DLP), which provides real-time enterprise data leak monitoring, detection, and preemption of information leaks occurring from enterprise servers, desktops and mobile devices. BigFix DLP leverages BigFix's single multi-function agent, and massively scaleable universal policy enforcement architecture to protect data on all corporate computers that are both connected and disconnected from the corporate network.

BigFix DLP is part of the company's next generation product strategy called 'IT.Next,' which provides the framework for large-scale enterprises to optimize IT service delivery, and automate and enforce best practice policies and processes. BigFix DLP enables globally distributed server, desktop and mobile computers to rapidly classify and filter information in motion and in use, as well as continuously and accurately detect sensitive content at rest and stored in files. This real-time, proactive approach not only delivers the monitoring/auditing capabilities that today's rigorous regulatory environment demands, but also the capability to stop information leaks from occurring at all. The protection continues even when a PC, laptop or mobile device disconnects from the enterprise network and roams with its end-user.

"No top-level executive wants to hear that sensitive information - customer credit cards, social security numbers, bank accounts, or sensitive e-mails - may have passed into unauthorized hands. They never want to see their companies on the front page of the Wall Street Journal for that," said Dave Robbins, president and CEO for BigFix Inc. "Managing these risks, however, means patrolling the borderland where data, hardware, software, and human error intersect. Until now, data leak prevention was considered a hardware problem that could only be managed from the corporate network. Built on the BigFix Platform, only BigFix DLP delivers real-time endpoint visibility and control for highly granular data leak prevention - online, offline, and on-the-go."
