nexTier Networks brings document DNA analysis to data loss prevention

nexTier Networks announced new DLP products designed to help SMBs mitigate data security risks. The new Compliance Enforcer 100 and 200 appliances leverage nexTier’s DLP algorithms with semantic DNA analysis for advanced accuracy, automated security policy management and compliance reporting in a single, centralized administrator’s console.

One of the biggest challenges for companies today is protecting ever-increasing amounts of sensitive data, and that data is increasingly unstructured and harder to discover. Access to sensitive documents needs to be tightly controlled.

Compliance Enforcer enables organizations to identify and protect their information no matter where it is located in the enterprise by automatically discovering sensitive information and applying semantic intelligence to determine what the document’s content is, who can access what data, and where it can and cannot be sent to enforce business policies and compliance.

The product is now available as a 1U or 2U rack-mountable server appliance. The appliances proactively protect information at the gateway, departmental level or across the enterprise, delivering a simple, plug and play approach to DLP. Built from the ground up to significantly reduce deployment time to less than an hour, Compliance Enforcer cuts configuration and initial set-up time to minutes and eliminates the requirement of on-going manual pre-tagging and pre-processing of sensitive data. This reduces both short and long-term total cost of ownership.

Using nexTier’s identity and role-based contextual DLP paradigm, the Compliance Enforcer leverages existing enterprise directories (LDAP, Active Directory, RADIUS, Human Resources databases) and other information repositories for fast and consistent policy deployment.

Compliance Enforcer products are now shipping as pre-built and pre-configured appliances and start at US $30,000 for 100 users.
