It will also enable compliance with the increasingly complex network of privacy laws and regulation.Computershare will deploy the Vontu solution globally across its operations in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.

"Our ability to effectively manage and protect privacy data is critical to Computershare and demonstrates our commitment to protect our client's privacy information. In addition to our robust Information Security Program, Vontu's Data Loss Prevention suite will give our customers confidence that their privacy information is protected," said Donna Durkin, information security officer, Computershare. "We looked at other data loss prevention solutions and spoke with several Vontu customers and found that Vontu could provide support for a high degree of risk reduction in our business and deliver unmatched service for our global teams. Further, the integrated product suite offers comprehensive management information reporting and incident response capabilities."

Managing shareholder accounts for more than 14,000 corporations worldwide, data loss prevention is an essential component of Computershare's information security strategy. Computershare has licensed globally the entire Vontu Data Loss Prevention suite including Vontu Network Monitor and Prevent, Vontu Network Discover and Protect, and Vontu Endpoint Discover and Prevent. Additionally, the Vontu Enforce Engine will provide the centralized platform for data loss policy management, detection, workflow and remediation that enables Computershare to define policies once and enforce them worldwide. The Vontu solution will help Computershare guard against malicious and unintentional data breaches -- whether data is stored on the network or on a disconnected endpoint -- and will prevent data from exiting any network gateway or endpoint.
