First Tech Credit Union Deploys Code Green DLP Solution

Ease of Deployment, Ease of Management, Pricing Were Key Factors in Decision

SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2008) - Code Green Networks, the leader in comprehensive data loss prevention solutions that can be deployed quickly and cost-effectively, today announced that First Tech Credit Union of Portland, Oregon, has deployed the CI-1500 Content Inspection Appliance to protect its network against data leakage. The credit union's director of information security programs made the decision based on favorable recommendations from other financial institutions that are using Code Green solutions and on the cost-effectiveness and ease of deployment compared to other solutions on the market.

"DLP is an emerging technology, and I couldn't see spending $150,000 on three or four different pieces of hardware and spending weeks or months to get it deployed," said Rob McGee, Director of Information Security at First Tech Credit Union. "With Code Green, we got a solution we could deploy in a day."

Code Green Networks' Content Inspection appliances and Content Inspection agents offer an all-in-one solution that inspects and protects secure content on the network, in storage, and at network endpoints, and includes built-in e-mail encryption that integrates from leading encryption servers from Cisco, Voltage, and Zix. With all-in-one design and robust content inspection capabilities, Code Green's DLP solutions can be deployed and in operation within hours, offering customers a total cost of ownership less than half that of competing solutions.

"At Code Green Networks, we don't believe that implementing highly effective data leak prevention should be a major production involving hundreds or thousands of man-hours, several pieces of hardware, and multiple server licenses," said Rod Murchison, vice president of marketing at Code Green Networks. "When companies in finance, health care, and other industries really compare our solution with the complex, modular, and expensive systems offered by other vendors, they see that we provide the same or better DLP capabilities with outstanding simplicity and cost-effectiveness."
