EL CERRITO, Calif., April 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- DefiniSec today announced General Availability of SSProtect, its suite of data protection and management components that combat today’s most advanced Cybersecurity threats. SSProtect combines established protection techniques with patent-pending innovations offered by the KODiAC Cloud Service Architecture, together offering practical protection without significant impact to end-user workflows.
“We have been working for almost 2 years to realize the vision of true application-independent data protection with real effectiveness.”, said John Poffenbarger, Founder and CEO. “We have achieved this by combining security, availability, early detection, and event visibility together into a single set of services that offer ongoing data exposure risk visibility that is critical when responding to security incidents.”
This release includes SSProtect :Foundation, comprised of the following components:
Provides fine-grained two-factor authentication while insuring sensitive plaintext is only accessed by authorized processes. Also includes Honeypots, which provide early warning of potentially malicious behavior on host computers.
Manages in-place encryption, which allows protected files to retain their original personality, minimizing the impact to existing end-user workflows.
Manages cryptographic keys required for seamless, automatic sharing of protected content. This allows end-users to share protected files using Email, SharePoint, network mapped drives, file sync & sharing software, USB thumb drives – all while retaining protection.
The following optional extensions are also a part of this release:
Manages cloud-based data access event information storing what, when, where, from whom, for how long, and how data is accessed. On-demand reports provide instant data exposure risk insight, answering, “How bad is it?” almost instantly – invaluable during Incident Response.
A complete policy-based mail protection solution for Microsoft Outlook email clients, built entirely using :Expand, a programmatic interface extending SSProtect to external applications.
Provides seamless inline cloud backup and restore of protected content, without impact to end-users. Offers one-touch restoration of any version of any file, or an entire end-user archive. This permits users to recover damaged or sabotaged files, remediating the impact of Ransomware.
A Disaster Recovery solution providing privileged Administrators offline, secure access to a potentially complete archive of the entire Organization’s history of protected data.
SSProtect uses a self-service deployment model and can be setup for use in minutes, not hours or days. End-users are able to work with protected files and documents almost exactly as they have before, minimizing the learning curve while providing a high degree of protection.
Poffenbarger continued, “Our goal is to remove traditional barriers that stop organizations from deploying protective controls. By providing a solution that’s easy to use, deploy, and manage, we aim to make nation-state adversaries and organized crime rethink their strategies. Today’s release along with items we have on the drawing board set the stage for a new era where data owners regain control of their information.”
