Verdasys Announces Advanced Data Protection Support for Citrix ShareFile
WALTHAM, Mass. --(Business Wire)--
provider of Enterprise Information Protection (EIP) solutions including
data protection managed services for global 2000 and mid-sized
companies, has announced support for Citrix ShareFile
in its Digital Guardian Enterprise Information Protection Platform.
Digital Guardian® extends the ShareFile security model with unique data
classification, data event monitoring and flexible data controls,
including file encryption, protecting data across the enterprise.
Digital Guardian with ShareFile delivers advanced data
loss prevention (DLP), data usage control, mobility and
collaboration to organizations in highly regulated businesses,
government and intellectual property-centric industries.
Citrix ShareFile is an enterprise follow-me data solution that allows
users to sync and share data from any device. Digital Guardian is a
scalable and extensible data security platform that monitors,
classifies, controls and encrypts sensitive information on desktops,
laptops, servers, virtual environments and mobile devices. Digital
Guardian is capable of classifying data based on content, context and/or
user input, tagging files accordingly -- a data-centric approach which
allows for differentiatedpolicies that provide effective controls,
without breaking business processes. With Digital Guardian support for
ShareFile, enterprises can, for example, see users moving data to
unapproved media such as personal cloud storage (e.g. Dropbox (News - Alert)), USB
sticks, and CD/DVDs and can block and redirect these data movements to
ShareFile as appropriate.
According to Verdasys CEO Jim Ricotta (News - Alert) "Digital Guardian and ShareFile
are ideal for any enterprise with sensitive information such as customer
data or intellectual property requiring a more secure alternative to
consumer-style file-sharing services -- one that protects information
based on its sensitivity and the context of its use even after it leaves
the control of ShareFile. This allows mobile users to work with the
information they need from any device, anywhere and anytime."
Jesse Lipson, VP and GM, Data Sharing, Citrix added, "Many organizations
are seeking end-to-end protection of sensitive data. With Digital
Guardian and ShareFile, they can secure such information across
environments without disrupting employee and partner collaboration."
Digital Guardian utilizes end point agents to enforce data access
control policies using multiple mechanisms including user warnings and
blocking, as well as encryption. Digital Guardian's enterprise key
management capabilities enable information to be transparently encrypted
and decrypted as it is used in normal business processes. Encryption
ensures that sensitive data is secure once out of ShareFile, on an end
user device and beyond.
Sensitive files copied to ShareFile can be transparently encrypted by
Digital Guardian based on classification-driven policies. Users can
access encrypted files transparently on environments with a Digital
Guardian agent, including:
Windows desktop, laptops, servers
Citrix XenApp delivered applications
Citrix XenDesktop virtual desktops
Mobile devices (e.g. iOS)
If a user moves information to an unauthorized environment, Digital
Guardian ensures it is encrypted and cannot be accessed.
Digital Guardian support for Citrix ShareFile is available immediately.
