Palisade Systems, a leading provider of outbound content security and compliance enforcement solutions, today announced that its PacketSure appliance has been installed at over 50 banks to proactively prevent confidential account information, such as account, credit card, and debit card numbers, from leaving the organizations' networks.
PacketSure is a layered defense in safeguarding bank customer information and provides the necessary controls and reports for ensuring compliance with the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard, and the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
PacketSure's layered defense provides visibility, communication policy enforcement, and content monitoring and filtering. By gaining visibility to communication protocols being used by employees, including Instant Messaging (IM), SMTP e-mail, Web Mail, and Chat, banks are able to implement corporate communication policies and enforce those policies by eliminating unwanted communications channels. PacketSure's third layer of defense then monitors for private information leaving on those protocols approved for employee use.
"PacketSure does an excellent job of enforcing both our bank's network security policy and protecting confidential client account information," said Derrick Montplaisir, Systems Engineer at First National Financial Services. "PacketSure blocks both inbound and outbound security threats, locks down unauthorized application use, and protects private data from leaking out of the network."
"Palisade Systems has established itself as the leader in content monitoring and filtering marketplace," said Kurt Shedenhelm, president and CEO of Palisade Systems. "Adding our 50th banking customer is a testament of how well PacketSure monitors and blocks sensitive data from leaving the network and enforces policies for compliance of corporate policies and industry regulations."
