SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GhangorCloud has received the 2017 Data Leak Prevention Solution of the Year award from Computing Security. This is the second year in a row that the GhangorCloud Information Security Enforcer has been honored with this award. Massive data breaches in the previous year have placed increased emphasis on the need for advanced data leak prevention technology and a real-time solution to stop data exfiltration.
"In today’s digital age, data is a powerful asset. It lubricates operations, completes transactions, leads to revelations, embodies intellectual property, tracks progress, and sounds alarms. As essential as this asset has become, protecting data from theft and misuse has proven to be an equal if not greater challenge." --- Michael Suby of Frost & Sullivan.
Protecting data against highly sophisticated attacks requires a generational advance in the way data in motion is analyzed and controlled. Each transaction must be scrutinized with a multi-faceted view of who is sending what to whom, and how. This needs to work in an automated framework that generates and applies policies to each individual transaction based on actor identity and clearance.
“We have a unique identity and role-based access technology which performs intelligent analysis of the required variables for the real-time identification of data leaks,” says Tarique Mustafa, CEO/CTO of GhangorCloud. “We analyze everything in flight - the Actors, the information and how the data is being transported. We automatically classify the data, and based on its security significance, we generate a unique policy to determine if both the sender and receiver should have access. This is what makes our solution so powerful.”
In a recent report, Frost and Sullivan commented on three leading solutions for combatting the difficulties of contemporary data leak prevention. " ... the state of the art in data protection has fallen short in meeting the challenges enterprises face in protecting data. We believe this gap can be closed. The three promising data protection solutions from IBM, Micro Focus, and GhangorCloud. Each is unique in the data protection challenges it addresses." --- Michael Suby of Frost & Sullivan.
