EdgeWave Expands Compliance Offering to Data Loss Protection for Email

EdgeWave Email Security (Powered by Red Condor) Now Includes Email Data Compliance to Monitor and Protect Private Information via Outgoing Email

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 28, 2011) - St. Bernard Software, Inc. DBA EdgeWave (OTCBB: EWVE) (OTCQB: EWVE), a leader in Secure Content Management (SCM) solutions, today announced the official launch of its new Email Data Compliance solution, which protects against inadvertent disclosure of private or sensitive data that can occur through outbound email data leaks. Email Data Compliance can be deployed on customers' outbound email streams for both hosted and appliance customers.

As part of EdgeWave's award-winning Messaging Security suite, Email Data Compliance uses proprietary technology to rapidly analyze all information in customers' outbound email messages and prevent any private or confidential data detected to leave the network. Such controlled information includes: personally-identifiable information (PII), social security numbers, credit card numbers, or patient health information. By providing full attachment scanning on the outbound email stream, Email Data Compliance enables customers to easily monitor and control outbound data as required by regulatory bodies such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), as well as allowing compliance with various government regulations such as Graham-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.

Deploying EdgeWave's Email Data Compliance couldn't be easier. Once the solution has been licensed, administrators can configure the policy treatment for the financial and/or health compliance in a matter of minutes using the browser-based administrative dashboard. Additional benefits include:

  • Unprecedented accuracy - Lexicons and logic engine allows precise deterministic analysis
  • Low Latency - Proprietary technology rapidly analyzes and detects data triggering compliance enforcement

"Many companies and organizations are governed by federal and state regulations and other rules that mandate controls on disclosure and privacy," states Roy Miehe, CEO of MSP Portal. "Violating these rules can damage a company's reputation. It costs business, and can result in massive fines being levied against it. Email Data Compliance is a critical component of any email security platform, and something our customers require to do business. EdgeWave has once again responded to customer demand, and delivered a solution in the easiest and most effective way possible."

"Email Data Compliance was a natural extension for EdgeWave's Email Security solutions," said Tim McAllister, Product Manager, Messaging Security at EdgeWave. "Our development goals were simple; leverage our existing reputation and award-winning technology, and create a solution that was easy to use and administrate. We recognize that our customers are constantly faced with new and emerging email challenges. With EdgeWave's suite of messaging and data protection solutions, we offer businesses uncomplicated, efficient and reliable means to seamlessly address these mission-critical priorities."
