Internal Threat Protection Adds a New Layer of Security to SMBs' Clouds

Cloudwrangler Adds InterGuard From Awareness Technologies to Its Suite of Hosted Security Services for Businesses

ENGLEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - Feb 22, 2012) - Verecloud, Inc.® creator of the Cloudwrangler™ Marketplace for businesses, announced today the addition of InterGuard, a suite of complete internal threat protection technologies delivered through the Cloud with one agent download and one user interface. The first of its kind, InterGuard is offered as both a complete suite or as individual modules. Cloudwrangler is offering Web Filtering, Data Loss Prevention, Employee Monitoring and Laptop Recovery for just $13.99 per user per month; a savings of up to 38% per user per month. Or, businesses can buy Web Filtering, Data Loss Prevention and Employee Monitoring for only $11.99 per user per month. Also, the modules are available as individual services through Cloudwrangler; InterGuard's flagship module Web Filtering is just $1.38 per user per month so it's a very accessible offering for small to medium sized businesses.

For many businesses, the biggest liability lies in the fact that they must protect valuable personal customer data, such as credit cards, social security numbers or other billing information. Furthermore, companies must protect their proprietary information, sales contracts and other assets from being stolen or sold by a rogue employee. With InterGuard, businesses can operate with the security of knowing that nothing can leave their network or a company computer without their explicit knowledge and permission. This is a new level of threat protection that is quickly becoming a standard business operations tactic. "Companies now have a simple, cost effective solution to control one of the greatest threats and distractions to their business. With the flexibility to choose services on one platform and user level controls, they can ensure employees are productive while the business is protected," said Brad Hoffman VP of Operations at Verecloud.

InterGuard is deployed undetectably either remotely over a network or on individual computers. Businesses now have access to four unique threat protection technologies through one agent download and with one simple user interface. InterGuard's Web Filtering module allows businesses to keep users from accessing restricted sites and monitors/records use. This is the first web filtering application that provides full functionality both on and off a network, with no hardware required. The Data Loss Prevention module stops sensitive data from leaking via email, webmail or USB. It allows businesses to quickly identify and address data security vulnerabilities, gaps in acceptable use policies and inappropriately stored data. The Employee Monitoring module records and blocks all computer activity outside of the company's acceptable use policies. It helps companies identify top performers, correct under-performers, eliminate potential liability issues, and conduct investigations on abuses of company policies. With Laptop Recovery, businesses can protect critical data on computers on or off their network. It can locate lost or stolen laptops using geo-location and delete or retrieve critical data. Together, the four modules create a comprehensive layer of internal threat protection for businesses and their customer data.
