Tablus Brings Next Generation Content Discovery to Large Enterprises

Tablus Inc., a leading provider of comprehensive content loss prevention solutions, today (24 April 2007) announced the availability of the next generation of content discovery for large enterprises. The company's release of Content Sentinel 3 represents a revolutionary approach and the industry's most viable solution for discovering sensitive content residing on corporate networks and work stations. The solution is a vital component for the IT security architecture of today's large enterprises - many of which have tens of thousands of servers and computers containing petabytes of digital content. To truly protect customer data, corporate assets and brand equity, organizations need to first locate their sensitive content across these large repositories.

"In today's content driven business environment, where information grows by the day, companies are increasingly at risk for the loss or misuse of sensitive or confidential content," said Brian Burke, research manager of security products at industry analyst firm IDC. "Whether intentional or accidental, the data breaches gripping newspaper headlines are primarily driven by an enterprise's inability to locate, and consequently protect, sensitive information. Content discovery, or the ability for organizations to locate sensitive, at-risk content, is vital."

According to a 2007 research study sponsored by EMC Corp. titled "The Expanding Digital Universe," IDC estimates that the world generated 161 billion gigabytes of digital information in 2006, a volume of content that poses new challenges for corporate governance and compliance as well as overall corporate reputation. Organizations that do not effectively incorporate content discovery into their overall IT security architectures run the risk of non-compliance with strict state and federal policies around the protection of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and data governed by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Standard. More dangerous than facing the fines associated with a breach of these regulations, however, is the negative impact that the loss or theft of sensitive content has on brand, shareholder value and customer loyalty.

Protection of brand and corporate assets starts with the discovery of sensitive content. Many large corporations are becoming aware that the first essential step in protecting confidential information is to accurately locate it. As a result, Content Sentinel is being deployed as a key element in the overall security postures of organizations including Microsoft, Domino's Pizza and Columbia River Bank.

According to Scott Hamilton, systems administrator at Columbia River Bank, "We have all witnessed the negative impact a data breach has on the brand equity of major corporations. At Columbia River Bank, we prefer to get ahead of the problem by accurately identifying where our sensitive information resides so that we can best protect it. With the Tablus solution we have gained a better understanding of the location of sensitive information, and are able to measure and enforce policies on the protection of that content to better protect against its proliferation."

Without Content Sentinel 3, comprehensive content discovery requires the arduous process of pulling data to a central location for analysis, placing a heavy burden on network resources, adding lengthy scan times and potentially introducing security holes. Content Sentinel is the only solution with patent-pending ZettaScan Architecture(TM) that brings the software to the data rather than bringing the data to the software. As a result, it is the only viable way for large organizations to scan thousands of computers simultaneously, virtually eliminating network impact, and cutting scan time from months to hours while delivering the highest levels of precision, all right out of the box.

Other features of Content Sentinel 3 include:

  • Enterprise Management and Operations: A hierarchical deployment approach where a central Enterprise Coordinator manages policies, scan groups and results from distributed Site Coordinators. This makes the technology suited to provide enterprise-scale content discovery across multiple locations and remote offices.
  • Grid-Based Scanning: A breakthrough in content discovery, grid-based scanning is the fastest and most scalable way to analyze content in a massive data repository. With grid scanning, the analysis of large data repositories are automatically load balanced across multiple, designated machines for fast, parallel analysis of content. This guarantees unmatched performance and scalability in the largest corporate networks.
  • Agent-Based Scanning: Temporary or permanent scan agents provide constant protection by continuously scanning computers, while analyzing the content in place. In today's mobile world, agents are the only way to ensure that scans continue even when the computer is disconnected from the network. By doing the analysis in place, without having to move the content, impact to the network is virtually eliminated. Leaving the content in place also ensures that content is never transmitted without being encrypted. Results are uploaded to the site coordinator once the computer reconnects to the corporate network.
  • Incremental Scanning: A patent-pending incremental scanning approach processes only new, modified, renamed or moved files and folders on previously scanned content - typically just one percent changes on a daily basis--making frequent scans feasible in a minimal amount of time.
  • Unparalleled Accuracy: At the heart of Content Sentinel is an advanced Content Analysis Engine that can accurately identify and locate sensitive content with greater than 99 percent precision rates. Only Tablus utilizes C3 Precision Technology(TM) which includes sophisticated detection techniques and analysis algorithms, powerful multi-level content analysis and content detection built right into the product to produce the most accurate content identification rates in the industry.

"The exponential growth of digital content within large enterprises makes content discovery vital to securing today's businesses," said Anne Bonaparte, president and CEO of Tablus. "Content Sentinel 3 is designed to scale to meet the needs of the largest organizations - companies characterized by tens of thousands of servers, workstations and remote employees. It is imperative that these enterprises focus on the location of their sensitive information in order to truly secure it. Without content discovery, they are missing a primary step required in the protection of customers, brand and corporate assets."
