SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 19, 2018 /CNW/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the global data leak prevention industry, Frost & Sullivan recognizes GhangorCloud with the 2018 Global Technology Innovation Award for its fourth generation (4G) data leak prevention (DLP) Information Security Enforcer (ISE) technology. This iteration plugged the gaps in the earlier generations of DLP technology mainly by reducing the dependence on manual interaction and expanding its use case beyond accidental data leaks.
"DLP solutions were meant to decrease the risk and severity of data breaches but they could not keep pace with organizations' demand for speed, scale, comprehensiveness, and certainty. GhangorCloud ISE meets all of these requirements by offering real-time speed, unlimited scalability, comprehensive scope (content and actors), and authentic alerts," said Michael Suby, Stratecast VP of Research, Frost & Sullivan.
Significantly, GhangorCloud ISE's operational design lowers human involvement in content identification, irrespective of whether the content is structured or unstructured. It identifies and classifies sensitive information even in freshly created content. It even minimizes human engagement in DLP policy generation and enforcement by gathering and synthesizing four content dimensions, namely:
- The Actor—Who the DLP policy applies to (an individual or a device), and the actor's pre-defined organizational role
- Data Classification—Automatically accomplished in real-time without the need for pre-tagging
- Source & Destination Categorization—Where the content is being sent to and/or originates
- Communication Channel – How data is transmitted
GhangorCloud ISE's scaling is not bound by the constraints of system locations and the availability of human resources due to its human-light engagement, end-to-end automation, and environment-agnostic deployments. Deployment times are substantially reduced, and importantly, it almost completely does away with false positives. In effect, GhangorCloud reduces the pressure on organizations to hire DLP operational specialists and delivers a high return on human capital.
"GhangorCloud ISE's instances can be either on prem or in the cloud, while its centralized command control collaboration and intelligence (C4I) module enables it to provide military-style command and control capabilities with enterprise-grade scalability and usability," noted Suby. "Overall, its application diversity, scalability, and ability to optimally utilize human capital makes it a welcome addition to an enterprise's security portfolio."
