Tizor Systems Announces Mantra U Data Auditing and Protection Program for Higher Education

First Program Designed to Help Meet Data Security Needs of Colleges and Universities

MAYNARD, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 16, 2007 -- Tizor Systems, the leading provider of enterprise data auditing and protection solutions for the data center, today announced the launch of "Mantra U," a program tailored to the unique data protection challenges of colleges and universities. Mantra U is a comprehensive package of products and services that provides schools with advanced data auditing technology capable of protecting sensitive data from theft or misuse. With everything that a university needs to get a database auditing and data protection system up and running, Mantra U includes quick start data auditing templates for data theft protection and data compliance, architecture and design services, custom training courses and deployment services.

"Universities face a huge data security challenge. They need to provide easy data access to a large number of transient users while protecting sensitive personal and financial information belonging to students, alumni, faculty and benefactors stored in their databases, file servers and mainframe applications," said Joel Rosen, president and CEO of Tizor Systems. "We created this program to help schools mitigate the latest threats to data while enabling access."

As evidenced by Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, who reports thirty breaches affecting colleges and universities since January 1, 2007, institutions of higher education are a prime target for information thieves. These thieves are leveraging cutting-edge tools and tactics to access sensitive data. Colleges and universities are looking for technologies to address this problem. Tizor's Mantra, a key component of the Manta U program, is a new class of network-based, enterprise data auditing and protection solution that catches suspicious user behavior that may signal data theft and/or non-compliance with data privacy and protection laws.
