Leading Endpoint DLP Provider Honored in the Encryption Solution and Information Leak Prevention Categories

PHILADELPHIA, PA and TEL AVIV, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - Jun 17, 2011) - Safend, a leading provider of endpoint data protection solutions, announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named Safend a winner of the 2011 Best Deployment Scenario Awards in the Encryption Solution and Information Leak Prevention categories. This prestigious award recognizes security vendors with advanced, ground-breaking security solutions that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of information security. Safend was selected based on real-world solution deployments that are making the most positive impact on security in today's highly sophisticated and blended attacks environment.

Safend was honored for its ability to help one of the largest financial institutions in South Africa safeguard their intellectual property and customers' critical data persistently, as well as meet new regulatory requirements. The bank chose Safend's Data Protection Suite -- which is comprised of Safend Inspector, Safend Discoverer, Safend Encryptor, Safend Protector, Safend Protector for Mac and Safend Discoverer for Mac -- to meet the bank's greatest security threat of information leaks through endpoints that include USB, RW DVD, external hard drives and SD cards.

Safend was also recognized for its work with a large U.S.-based healthcare insurer who services more than 550,000 individuals in 13 counties. The insurer looked to Safend to deploy its Data Protection Suite, including its Safend Encryptor solution, in order to protect and secure sensitive customer data from internal and external threats. Safend Encryptor was able to seamlessly protect the insurer's data, without changing any of its existing end-user or helpdesk workflows, and the deployment was over in less than a month with little to no overhead.
