PortAuthority Technologies, Inc.,™ the leader in Information Leak Prevention (ILP), today announced expanded confidential data protection for global enterprises now available from the PortAuthority ILP appliances. PortAuthority’s new functionality includes automated discovery capabilities to help organizations locate and protect sensitive or confidential information across the network, as well as policy management support for multi-national and distributed organizations. Loss of private information by internal users, whether malicious or unintended, continues to plague organizations worldwide.

Recently, serious data breaches have occurred due to the loss of a laptop containing private customer data or confidential information. Whether unintentional, intentional or malicious in nature, the ramifications can be significant. PortAuthority helps organizations comply with state regulations and Federal requirements, such as FIPS 199 or NIST 800-53A, and corporate security policies, to discover and accurately identify private customer data or confidential information on laptops, desktops and shared drives. As a result, organizations gain visibility into unsecured sensitive data and all variants residing on endpoints throughout the enterprise to identify any policy violations.

With automated discovery features and other recent enhancements, coupled with the leading functionality already delivered in the fourth-generation version of the solution, including proven near-perfect accuracy and optional blocking on all systems, PortAuthority Technologies delivers the most full-featured solution for protecting confidential information from unauthorized distribution.

“Losing confidential information and IP is a growing concern in the industry, and our expanding customer base is looking for a solution to keep them out of the headlines as the next company with an issue,” said Mike Conley, VP of Sales at Forsythe. “PortAuthority meets this need, and is one of the primary products in our leading suite of security offerings. We see PortAuthority’s unique blend of accurate monitoring and enforcement capabilities helping our customers eliminate chances for information leaks. PortAuthority is the only product in the industry we’ve seen that couples the precise monitoring of data in motion with discovery of data at rest, and lets organizations enforce their data security policies. As we are a leading VAR, PortAuthority’s cost-effective appliance form factor is compelling for Forsythe, as well.”

PortAuthority Technologies is a growing leader in the ILP and Content Monitoring/Filtering markets. It delivers security solutions that reliably and accurately control the unauthorized distribution of sensitive information for data privacy, confidential information protection, and compliance with regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard, and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). With more than 27 patents pending, only PortAuthority stops information leaks by continually monitoring internal and outbound communications and delivering policy enforcement in a real-time and accurate manner.

For global organizations doing business in North America, Europe and Asia, PortAuthority has expanded its policy management capabilities to provide custom policy notifications, and has added coverage of international regulations for data privacy compliance. IT security staff can create custom policies and notifications by business unit and geography to meet local regulatory and security policy requirements. As a result, when organizations move from passive monitoring to selective enforcement, PortAuthority provides a scalable solution for incident management and remediation. PortAuthority has also added additional template wizards to its growing regulatory compliance policy coverage, covering more than 140 policies. These new templates include Basel II, which provides recommendations for the international standards for adequacy of a bank’s capital, and the Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA), data protection directives limiting Canadian trade with nations not providing privacy protection equivalent to the EU directives. PortAuthority’s new functionality also includes increased policy management and custom policy violation notification, and updated intuitive reporting capabilities.

“Today’s PortAuthority solution increases the gap between the information data leak prevention functionality we deliver, and other offerings in the market,” said Raj Dhingra, vice president of marketing at PortAuthority Technologies. “PortAuthority Technologies is extremely flexible and responsive to our global customers’ needs. We are pleased to continue to roll out expanded functionality that delivers ease of use and a low cost of ownership.”

PortAuthority Technologies’ growing customer base has confidence that their internal data is secure, both for customer privacy, regulatory compliance and intellectual property concerns. Unlike other industry solutions, PortAuthority Technologies’ advanced algorithms use granular data matching techniques that are resilient to data manipulation. Studies and industry feedback confirm that its PreciseID™ technology delivers the industry’s highest accuracy with the lowest false positives and false negatives. Enterprises easily integrate PortAuthority Technologies’ appliance with their existing solutions to preserve their investment, while gaining best-of-breed information leak prevention to ensure regulatory and corporate compliance.
