Comguard Introduces BeyondTrust PowerBroker DLP 4.0 to Middle East and North Africa
Comguard, a Dubai based leading value added distributor for IT security products and solutions in the Middle East and North Africa region, today announced the availability of the industry’s first and only data loss prevention (DLP) solution with real-time, distributed artificial intelligence from BeyondTrust. This is the latest development in the relationship between the two companies, providing advanced security solutions to customers in the MEA region.
PowerBroker DLP v4.0 provides organizations a “zero-touch” solution to secure critical data without writing a single rule. It is the simplest, most flexible and easiest to deploy data protection solution for physical, virtual and mobile devices.
This significant new offering includes Active Profiler DX, BeyondTrust’s patent-pending technology that intelligently monitors and profiles ongoing user behaviour and activity, in order to then identify suspicious activity. Active Profiler DX learns the normal behavior of each user in the enterprise, automatically detecting and preventing data leak threats, and eliminating the costly process of continuously discovering and classifying data. PowerBroker DLP is also context- aware, an integral capability that is part of BeyondTrust’s vision to provide organizations contextual knowledge and actionable intelligence to optimize security and reduce the risk profile of their IT Infrastructures.
According to a recent April 2012 Gartner report titled, How to Communicate Enterprise Content-Aware DLP Value to Your Senior Executives to Ensure Project Funding, content-aware DLP spending continues to grow in this expanding market as documented in Gartner's yearly Magic Quadrant for content-aware DLP. The main reason for the increase in DLP usage is to provide a means of addressing internal and external compliance initiatives leveraging content and content awareness. No other existing solution set is capable of understanding content and its context of use at the time of an operation.
"In line with our continual efforts to bring world class technology to the Middle East region, we are pleased to introduce PowerBroker DLP to our customers,” said Jayadevan K, Senior Vice President, Value Business at Comguard. “With this latest offering from BeyondTrust, enterprises can defend against intentional or accidental disclosure of sensitive data and detect and mitigate Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).”
PowerBroker DLP enables IT departments to centrally define, audit and manage their sensitive data and compliance policies, as well as enacting measures including alerts, encryption and blocking to safeguard intellectual property and confidential data. PowerBroker DLP now also offers One Click Compliance with easy-to-use templates to enforce HIPAA, GLBA, SOX, and other critical regulatory frameworks.
"With PowerBroker DLP v4.0, organizations can stop data leaks in their tracks using our easy to deploy, cost-effective solution," said Andrey Kolishchak, Senior Director, Program Management, DLP at BeyondTrust. "In addition to delivering leading-edge DLP functional, Active Profiler DX offers intelligent, automated data protection that is simple to deploy but incredibly effective."
PowerBroker DLP also features a newly enhanced dashboard and management interface to provide clear visibility into how data flows over the network and spot suspicious activity at a glance while easily managing all of the powerful DLP capabilities, including Active Profiler DX. The solution also tightly integrates with Microsoft Group Policy (GPO) and Active Directory (AD) to provide seamless deployment and management within existing AD and GPO structures.
