NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Dec. 11, 2006 -- True to its corporate philosophy of developing technology that is at least one generation ahead of all its competitors, GTB Technologies today unveiled Version 11 of its flagship product GTB Inspector, the only information leak prevention solution that delivers SSL decryption while blocking peer-to-peer application traffic and detecting multi-field structured data.
For the first time ever, organizations can decrypt and inspect transmitted data in SSL encrypted connections. The decryption and inspection is done transparently for both sides of the connection. A transmission containing confidential data, violating policies, can be stopped immediately or flagged for review. To expand the implementation of the revolutionary technology even further, GTB Technologies is considering licensing its SSL decryption feature to qualified OEM partners as a separate product from GTB Inspector.
The new Version 11.0 incorporates a host of other new features and improvements, including peer-to-peer traffic blocking which eliminates exposure through rogue peer-to-peer applications; integration with the enterprise directory for more convenient and flexible policies creation; and the addition of another detection engine and extension of the existing one, providing more options to the customer’s CSO staff.
The product is available for worldwide deployment and is starting at $30,000, plus a per user charge.
“GTB Inspector gives us peace of mind,” said Rexford Aniag, network manager at Picatinny Federal Credit Union, Dover, Del. “It takes a lot of administration time off my hands, and the more time I can spend away from security, the more time I have to improve my network.”
According to most recent market research, security breaches typically cost companies an average of $180 for each lost record, with the average total cost per company reaching more than $4.5 million per breach and potentially exceeding $20 million. In addition, more than 70 percent of the increased recovery costs reported between 2005 and 2006 were due to increased expenditures on notification phone calls, compensation packages such as discounted services, etc. What’s more, individuals affected by security breaches can significantly harm a corporation’s reputation, customer satisfaction and loyalty: almost 20 percent of those adversely affected terminated their relationship with the company and another 40 percent were considering terminating their relationship.
“GTB Inspector is the only solution on the market that can prevent data leaks from enterprise network in realistic settings,” explained Uzi Yair, GTB Technologies CEO. “It achieves that goal by covering all network protocols and file formats and using proprietary algorithms for precise data detection with virtually zero false positives. As a hardware appliance that is transparently installed on the network perimeter, it proactively detects and blocks any attempts to transmit confidential data from the corporate network to the Internet in violation of the corporate policy.”
The GTB Inspector has a number of unique features, distinguishing it from its competition:
• protection of both structured and unstructured data*
• resilience to data manipulation, including copy-n-paste, excerpting, format conversion, re-typing and reformatting
• no duplication nor storage of protected data on the GTB Inspector -- not even for a short time
• novel, patent pending data scanning algorithms, ensuring virtually zero false positives rate
• coverage of all network protocols -- not only email, web or instant messengers
• protection of text or binary data stored in databases, spreadsheets or plain files of any format
*"Structured data" includes social security, credit card and bank account numbers; customer names, email addresses, employees’ salaries and the like. Unstructured data includes intellectual property and any electronic documents, including company plans, reports, memos, drawings, etc.
In addition, GTB offers a Data at Rest Manager that allows companies to discover exposed confidential data on the servers, desktops, laptops and removable media.
The new version focuses on the unique requirements of large organizations: scalability, reliability and distributed deployment. To meet them, GTB Inspector can be deployed in clusters with support for load balancing, redundancy, failover and automatic data replication. Future increases in traffic can be accommodated by installing additional devices without interruption.
