New Silicon Valley Company, GhangorCloud, Promises to Redefine Information Security Governance and Regulatory Compliance Enforcement

GhangorCloud's Information Security Enforcer Offers Information Security and Compliance Capabilities That Far Outpace Any Traditional Data Security Solution in the Market

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2015) - GhangorCloud, the company redefining information security compliance and the "cloud and collaboration age" data leak prevention (DLP), today announced its official company and product launch. Founded by Silicon Valley security veteran Tarique Mustafa, GhangorCloud is backed by a stellar team, board, and advisors that include leading authorities from companies like Symantec, McAfee, Trend Micro, Cisco, Juniper, Alteon, and Array Networks. GhangorCloud's groundbreaking information security and compliance solutions protect data based not only on contextual and conceptual reasoning but on unique Identity & Role based GRC paradigm that enable Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) protection.

One of the biggest challenges that organizations face today is protecting ever-expanding amounts of sensitive data, which is increasingly unstructured and harder to discover. Theft, misuse, and unauthorized disclosure of sensitive information by company insiders are also growing problems further exacerbated by the emergence of Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs). GhangorCloud's next-generation solutions -- including the Information Security Enforcer (ISE) family of turnkey appliances -- use a powerful correlation engine and security algorithms to identify, classify, and protect large volumes of information in real-time with unprecedented accuracy via a single centralized administrator's console.

"In this era of new threats posed by APTs and the proliferation of unsecured Web Applications conventional means of information security are both insufficient and often irrelevant in many scenarios," said Tarique Mustafa, CEO, GhangorCloud. "A foundational paradigm shift is imperative in order to provide an effective means of information security on-premise and in the cloud, which is where GhangorCloud comes in. We offer the most powerful 'Best of the Breed' industry-recognized solution that enables and enforces information security and compliance far and beyond any traditional data security solution."

The company's patented (and patent pending) technologies allow enterprises, businesses, and government departments to reduce administrative tasks related to data protection from days to minutes, mitigate the risk of data breaches and internal malicious threats, automate compliance requirements, and proactively protect information throughout the organization. The rapid deployment of GhangorCloud's solutions also lower the cost of compliance and reduce total cost of ownership, eliminating the expenses associated with hundreds and thousands of hours of manual document tagging. GhangorCloud provides its information security service to any corporation, including social networks, media companies, social OnDemand companies, and cloud companies.

GhangorCloud also announced the immediate availability of its "Information Security Enforcer" Version-1.5, the industry's first and only solution to provide comprehensive protection of data throughout the enterprise eliminating the need for manual pre-tagging of information. In addition to its ability to drastically mitigate data compliance and leakage risks -- including malicious theft, accidental leakage, and misuse of mission-critical information -- the company's flagship product is also the first and only solution to provide complete enforcement of industry regulations, including HIPAA, GLBA, SOX, PCI, and PII. A 4th-generation information security and compliance solution with sophisticated APT & DLP features, GhangorCloud's Information Security Enforcer (ISE) is designed to be flexible enough to adapt to new compliance requirements, ensuring continued protection and compliance as threats and attacks evolve.

Key features and differentiators of the Information Security Enforcer (ISE) solution include:

  • Identity & Role driven Authorization - The Information Security Enforcer (ISE) solution provides a unique patent-pending Identity and Role-based paradigm which enables highest levels of controls over users' access rights to the relevant content, data, and information within the enterprise. The ISE leverages pre-existing data in the enterprise to seamlessly emulate the organization structure. The end-user actions are automatically evaluated and permitted/denied based upon their authorized roles and "Security Clearance Levels."

  • Segmentation of Duty driven Policy Enforcement - Segmentation of Duty (SoD) reduces an enterprise's exposure to fraud and conflict of interest. The ISE solution has built-in support for SoD driven policies which are automatically generated. The patent-pending Automated Policy Synthesis technology automatically creates relevant, highly granular and easily understandable policies for the entire organization, whether it is for 1,000 users or 100,000 users. The enterprise benefits from the reduced complexity, deployment time, costs and incidence of false positives.

  • Governance & Compliance driven Security Enforcement - The ISE solution has been built from the ground up to be a Real-time Security Enforcement solution that can automatically and in real-time identify and protect confidential data as per various industry compliance regulations such as PCI, PII, GLBA, SOX, FERPA, HIPAA-HITECH, NERC, FISMA, PDPA etc. It is designed to be flexible and adapt to new compliance requirements in the future.

  • Automated Data Identification & Classification - The ISE solution provides the unique ability to automatically identify, categorize and classify the relevant content, data and information that needs to be protected in real-time. Automated Identification and Classification of confidential and sensitive data/information is performed -- even for newly created "Virgin" data/information.
