Mobile Active Defense and Palisade Systems Partnership Protects Mobile Enterprises With Full-Featured Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Corporate Data Used in Mobile Enterprises, From iPads to Androids, Just Got a Whole Lot More Secure

DES MOINES, IA--(Marketwire - May 1, 2012) - Palisade Systems, an industry leader in the Data Security and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) markets, announced today that the award-winning mobile security company Mobile Active Defense (M.A.D.) is integrating Palisade Systems' DLP technology into their Mobile Enterprise Compliance Security (MECS) Server offerings to protect sensitive data from being shared or inadvertently leaked from mobile devices and workforces.

The MECS Server extends existing enterprise and network security policies across mobile platforms with unparalleled security, complete encryption, geolocation and granular firewall controls, containerization, a suite of anti-virus & malware detection, content filtering and device management tools -- and now data loss prevention (DLP) functionality -- to provide the most secure solution for a wide range of mobile devices.

"Using mobile devices for business purposes is a way of life for many employees," explained Dr. Guy Helmer, CTO for Palisade Systems. "Our patented technology identifies sensitive content and enforces data usage policies, so companies can add additional security to their mobile devices, such as iPads, iPhones, tablets, smart phones and much more."

There are many factors to consider when looking at DLP solutions. DLP should have the ability to discover content, not just on Windows servers and clients, but on other OSes; be able to read data from complex applications such as databases; classify content when in use, at rest, or in motion and have built in advanced content matching and data detection techniques.

According to Spencer Cobb, Co-Founder and CEO of Mobile Active Defense: "Palisade Systems is an ideal partner for Mobile Active Defense. We have customers who want the additional layers of security that DLP provides. Tightly integrated with e-mail and web gateway products, we are now able to stop sensitive date over those channels and encrypt data depending on company policy via a rule set."

Rob Smith, co-founder and CTO of Mobile Active Defense, agreed and commented, "Our goal is to provide the same security to mobile device use as enterprises do to their network. Mobile Active Defense and Palisade Systems are dedicated to improving the security of sensitive information. Our partnership provides unmatched security capabilities to mobile device administrators. Organizations who are truly concerned about the privacy, compliance and network security of their mobile infrastructures will find Mobile Active Defense's implementation of Mobile DLP irresistible."

The Mobile Active Defense implementation of the Palisade technology provides in-depth, proven content analysis capabilities such as:

  • Input, open, and extract text from files in the mobile environment.
  • Analyze content of files coming into and leaving mobile devices.
  • Determine if any content matches company critical sensitive data including PII, PFI, PHI, intellectual property, structured data, and custom policies.
  • Produce an output file indicating the content types that were found, the number of matches, and the text that matched.
  • Analyze output and determine an action.
  • Provide high-speed remediation through the MECS console.
