Palisade Systems Unveils Data Security Integration for Mobile and Cloud Computing Markets

Palisade Provides Data Loss Prevention Capabilities and Information Security With Palisade SDK, PacketSure Cloud and PacketSure Mobile Security Solutions

DES MOINES, IA--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2011) - Palisade Systems, an industry leader in the Data Loss Prevention (DLP) market, announced today that cloud service providers and mobile device vendors can now integrate Palisade System's enterprise DLP functionality into their products and solutions using Palisade's PacketSure DLP solutions or by leveraging the Palisade SDK (Software Development Kit) also announced today (see link to SDK PR).

With the release of Palisade PacketSure Cloud Security and Palisade PacketSure Mobile Security, Palisade is providing cloud service providers and mobile device vendors with a key advantage by minimizing the risk associated with moving key applications and data to the web, and helps ensure the security of corporate data on mobile devices.

Palisade PacketSure Cloud Security
"With the continued movement towards cloud deployments, we realize the need to protect data wherever it resides to minimize risk and meet compliance regulations," stated Spencer Snedecor, CEO of Palisade Systems. "We've been working with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver full enterprise DLP capabilities in this environment to secure sensitive data and have had solutions running in AWS for months."

Palisade first delivered a cloud-based security solution as part of the Amazon Web Service (AWS) Solution Provider Program. Palisade provides full DLP functionality for web and email security for Amazon customers who have web, email and/or database servers in EC2 or Virtual Public Cloud (VPC) environments. Palisade's industry-leading PacketSure Enterprise DLP provides the ability to monitor data of all types, analyze it for sensitive content, and enforce corporate information security policies to prevent unauthorized use or transmission of confidential data.

PacketSure Mobile and Cloud Security solutions include Palisade's patented data capture and policy enforcement engine for monitoring, analyzing and enforcing data security policies and provides reporting and documentation for regulatory compliance purposes. This type of DLP offering is ideal for finance and healthcare providers, as well as government and educational entities seeking to leverage the scalability and flexibility of the cloud, while minimizing the risk of data exposure or data leaks.

Palisade PacketSure Mobile Security
Palisade is also engaged with Mobile device providers to protect sensitive corporate data and enable mobility for non-sensitive corporate data. Palisade's SDK enables mobile device providers to address the increased security risks that are developing due to the expansion of mobile computing capabilities.

"Companies can now ensure proper access and use of sensitive company data being used by employees through their mobile devices, as our technology enables vendors to integrate data monitoring and policy enforcement capabilities to properly monitor and analyze data, and take appropriate action to prevent unauthorized or improper use before data goes out of the network," explained Snedecor.

PacketSure DLP technology is integrated into compartmentalized mobile security solutions, and enables scanning of all data to ensure corporate data has not leaked. PacketSure DLP works by monitoring content as it flows from mobile devices over the network into the company, or to a Web or cloud application. It inspects the content to ensure that it doesn't contain any sensitive data that violates company information security policies and enforces companies' data security policies.

Pricing and Availability
Palisade customers and partners can currently use the Beta version by contacting Palisade directly until general availability is announced in Q1 2012. Pricing will be consistent with Palisade's current offerings, providing full enterprise DLP at about half the cost of other DLP solutions. Palisade SDK offerings are available immediately by contacting Palisade at 888-824-0720.
