Enterprise data monitoring and data security policy language patent
United States Patent and Trademark Office awarded Tizor Systems a new U.S. Patent (U.S. Patent Number 7,415,719) on August 19, 2008. The patent is for the first comprehensive data auditing policy framework that integrates easy to understand English-like rules and templates with behavioral analytics to detect and prevent data theft and data breach in real time.
Tizor’s analytics, called Behavioral Fingerprinting, detect suspicious or anomalous behavior in real time, including large data downloads, unknown or untrusted PCs or unapproved off-hour activity, in enterprise repositories such as databases and file servers. This intelligence protects data from misuse and theft because it automatically identifies insider intrusions and illegitimate data access. Unlike other complex, base lining solutions which generate volumes of false positives, Mantra’s Behavioral Fingerprinting builds a dynamic, constantly updated user profile resulting in highly accurate detection of suspicious activity.
The English-like policy language allows technical or non-technical users to create detailed compliance and security policies without the long learning curve typically associated with other tools. Complex risk management issues can now be solved by different stakeholders across the enterprise, including risk, compliance and security officers. Additionally, pre-built compliance templates let enterprises address regulations and standards, such as SOX, GLBA, FFIEC and PCI, in less time, with fewer people and at a lower total cost of ownership.
