Code Green Networks, a leading provider of data loss prevention (DLP) solutions for protecting customer data and safeguarding intellectual property, today announced that Dupaco Community Credit Union and Class Act Federal Credit Union are among the growing list of credit unions and financial services organizations deploying its new CI-750 Content Inspection Appliance.
Launched less than sixty days ago, the CI-750 breaks the price/performance barrier in DLP - delivering enterprise-class data protection to organizations with up to 250 network users for one-third the cost of other DLP products. Iowa-based Dupaco selected the CI-750 to protect the data of over 49,000 members, and Class Act is using the product to protect member data of its affiliate network throughout the state of Kentucky.
According to the Small Business Technology Institute, SMB customers are at a clear disadvantage when it comes to choosing, purchasing, implementing and managing an effective data leak prevention solution. In addition, the complexity behind the various rules and regulations can be difficult to translate into enforceable policies. Rather than putting the onus on business owners to understand these regulations and tailor their policies to monitor for certain security infractions and specific data privacy violations, the CI-750 embeds this intelligence into dozens of out-of-the-box data policy templates.
"When we initiated our search to find a DLP product we knew first and foremost that it had to be an appliance for ease of use purposes, and we wanted to have as much functionality built into the solution as possible so we wouldn't have to absorb the cost or learning curve involved with buying multiple products," said Steve Ervolino, Vice President of Information Services and Technical Support at Dupaco Community Credit Union. "Code Green's CI-750 gave us everything we were looking for and more. The appliance packages up all these capabilities in one really simple interface, and it even includes a group of pre-defined templates that help give us a head start on building and tailoring policies that fit our unique company and industry requirements."
"Trying to integrate multiple security technologies can be overwhelming and costly for a company our size, and it's something we definitely wanted to avoid as part of our data loss prevention strategy," said Jonathan Buchholz, Vice President of Information Technology at Class Act Federal Credit Union. "Code Green was the only solution we found that delivered everything we needed in one box. Installation and configuration was easy and straightforward, and activating the integrated encryption capability was as simple as checking off a box in the policy settings. Code Green understands the needs of smaller organizations like ours, and the functionality and value we received with the CI-750 is proof of their expertise."
The CI-750 resides at an organization's Internet gateway, monitoring content flows on the corporate network and automatically enforcing data protection policies to log, alert, retain, block, encrypt or re-route transmissions across all popular Internet communications channels. Integrated on-board encryption capabilities and intuitive policy wizards further simplify deployment while advanced WebMail filtering surpasses the capabilities of traditional DLP products.
The appliance form factor maximizes throughput, adding negligible latency to TCP traffic while ensuring protection for up to 20 million elements of data stored in databases and structured files, and up to 250 Gigabytes (GB) of data across more than 400 different file formats including Microsoft Office documents, software source code, CAD drawings, image files, rich media and industry-specific application formats. The CI-750 monitors Email (SMTP), Web, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), File Transfer Protocol (FTP), online tools such as Blogs and Wikis - and all popular WebMail services including Google Gmail, MSN Hotmail, AOL Mail, Windows Live Mail and Yahoo! Mail.
