Cyber-Ark enhances security of files in-transit

Cyber-Ark Software announced version 7 of its Sensitive Information Management Suite to support secure file exchange environments.

The suite isolates sensitive data sent over the Internet, enabling organizations to securely exchange sensitive information with their business partners, customers, suppliers and subcontractors using ad-hoc, manual or automated file transfer through a single platform.

Version 7 includes capabilities to securely send emails from any browser for increased mobility, expanded enterprise integration for its Secure Email Manager solution with Data Loss Prevention (DLP) software, and enhanced monitoring of system health for quicker recovery and streamlined system management.

Making the Case for More Secure File Sharing According to Gartner, by 2015, 50 percent of midsize and large organisations will deploy solutions to manage large file attachments for emails, file exchange portals, file sharing and collaboration, and file access and management via mobile devices.

Cyber-Ark provides an alternative to common file exchange technologies like email and FTP that are being increasingly scrutinised by auditors and vulnerable to attackers. Within the last year, organisations like Yale University and Acer suffered data breaches by failing to secure their FTP server.

Sensitive Information Management in Action Cyber-Ark customers choose the Sensitive Information Management Suite to support a variety of business uses including secure unlimited sized attachments over email, file exchange portals, file sharing and collaboration with external parties, support for mobile device users, and file transfer automation for business-to-business integration.

“Whether the catalyst is compliance, cybersecurity or protecting file sharing in increasingly mobile environments, global organisations are making secure file exchange a greater priority based on well-known weaknesses with existing technologies, and easy-to-exploit vulnerabilities,” said Roy Adar, vice president of product management, Cyber-Ark Software.
