EdgeWave Expands Compliance Offering to Data Loss Protection for Email

EdgeWave,
a provider of Secure Content Management (SCM) solutions, today announced the
launch of its Email Data Compliance solution, which protects against
inadvertent disclosure of private or sensitive data that can occur through
outbound email data leaks. Email Data Compliance can be deployed on customers’
outbound email streams for both hosted and appliance customers, the company
said.

As
part of EdgeWave’s Messaging Security suite, Email Data Compliance uses
proprietary technology to analyze all information in customers’ outbound email
messages and prevent any private or confidential data detected to leave the
network. Such controlled information includes personally identifiable
information (PII), Social Security numbers, credit card numbers or patient
health information.

By
providing full attachment scanning on the outbound email stream, the platform
enables customers to monitor and control outbound data as required by
regulatory bodies such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards
(PCI DSS), as well as allowing compliance with various government regulations
such as Graham-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), the Health Insurance Portability and
Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the Health Information Technology for Economic
and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.

Once
the solution has been licensed, administrators can configure the policy
treatment for the financial and/or health compliance using the browser-based
administrative dashboard. Other features include Lexicons and a logic engine to
allow precise deterministic analysis, and proprietary technology analyzes and
detects data triggering compliance enforcement.

"Email
Data Compliance was a natural extension for EdgeWave’s Email Security
solutions," said Tim McAllister, product manager of messaging security at
EdgeWave. "Our development goals were simple: leverage our existing
reputation and award-winning technology, and create a solution that was easy to
use and administrate. We recognize that our customers are constantly faced with
new and emerging email challenges. With EdgeWave’s suite of messaging and data
protection solutions, we offer businesses uncomplicated, efficient and reliable
means to seamlessly address these mission-critical priorities."

EdgeWave
currently provides hosted email archiving that supports an organization’s
e-discovery, long-term retention and full-text search for employee-generated
content. This service is used both for information compliance with a variety of
industry and government regulations such as FRCP, SOX, FINRA, HIPPA and GLBA,
as well as to improve storage efficiency and associated costs.
