Palisade Systems Offers Managed Data Loss Prevention Solution
Data loss prevention specialist Palisade Systems announced PacketSure
Managed DLP, a data loss solution specifically designed for managed service
providers at the midmarket level. Already implemented with particular LightEdge
Solutions customers, PacketSure Managed DLP was specifically designed for
customers who use network solutions through a managed service provider and
require DLP as an additional managed service.
PacketSure Managed DLP has already been deployed to
customers, and is available for additional managed service provider
deployments. The company is also offering a free five-day security analysis for
potential enterprise customers. Christian Renaud, CEO and president of Palisade
Systems, noted MSPs serve as outsourcing IT agents for enterprise networks,
with integration and certification of Internet security for applications and
content. "Palisade Systems continues to expand its reach and focus on the
small- and medium-sized enterprise with PacketSure DLP," he said. "This product
will allow us to partner with managed service provider partners and provide a
new group of customers with data loss prevention needs."
The product analyzes the content of files and data being
transmitted in real time, identifies confidential information and blocks,
quarantines, or re-routes to for encryption, with the solution offered in two
flavors: a monitoring service designed to provide organizations the visibility
into data leaving their network by delivering scheduled reports, and a managed
service for organizations that wish to remediate proprietary data before
leaving their network.
"LightEdge Solutions is committed to being the single point
of administration and management for all aspects of the network and providing
the best and most comprehensive managed services for our customers," said
LigthEdge's vice president of engineering, Travis Thompson. "By offering Data
Loss Prevention to our hosted networking and IT services, we are able to
continue to differentiate LightEdge in the market and offer our customers the
highest level of security on their network."
Palisade argues that as the market for managed services is forecast to grow about 20 percent annually and become more competitive, MSPs will need to have all the necessary components to fulfill their enterprise customer needs. Peter Christy, a principal at Internet Research Group, said as more business is transacted electronically and as the regulatory penalties are strengthened, the need for effective data loss prevention increases. "By providing a DLP solution through Managed Service Providers, Palisade Systems is leading the industry providing this solution alternative that is particularly attractive to the SMB segment that Palisade serves," he said.
