Zecurion Prevents Sensitive and Confidential Data From Being Leaked With Latest Release of Zgate

Zgate Delivers Data Protection and Compliance Solution for Email and Social Networking

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 23, 2010) - Zecurion Inc., an information security systems leader that protects business against insider threats, announces the latest release of Zgate. This release adds new capabilities to monitor outbound traffic and block sensitive information from being compromised via social networking sites like Facebook or Twitter, in addition to email. Zecurion recognizes that social networks have become valuable business tools, but pose a significant risk for both intentional and inadvertent data leakage.

Zecurion CEO Alexey Raevsky explains, "The new version of Zgate gives our customers full-fledged DLP functionality. It controls all possible ways of data leakage via the Internet and employs cutting edge content analysis techniques. Used with other Zecurion products, it may serve as a significant part of an all-inclusive internal security solution."

Zgate prevents confidential or sensitive information from leaving the network via email or social networking. All available fields of outbound email and social networking communications, as well as any file attachments, are filtered based on established rules.

Zgate enables customers to maintain compliance with regulatory and industry mandates such as HIPAA, or PCI-DSS by identifying and restricting outbound communications including sensitive information like birth dates, Social Security numbers, account numbers, etc. IT administrators can create custom rules containing specific key words or conditions to guard against leaking confidential data.

Once analysis is complete, outbound messages may be sent, blocked, quarantined, or archived. Quarantined messages can be evaluated by an authorized individual to determine the appropriate action to take. Archived messages are stored in a fully-searchable database, providing IT administrators with a valuable security monitoring and forensics tool.

Zgate is compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 7, and with Windows Server 2003 and 2008, and with all major SMTP mail servers -- Microsoft Exchange, IBM Lotus Domino, Sendmail, Postfix, etc.
