Protecting Internal Data

Every day organizations make headlines for data leaks.  Accidentally leaving servers unprotected without a password, losing a laptop with unencrypted data, emailing sensitive data to the wrong person, malicious phishing and data hacks.  Data protection is available to organizations that want to keep their INTERNAL DATA… INTERNAL.

Regardless of where data is stored or how data is transferred, data protection can protect an organization’s sensitive information at rest, in transit, and in use.   There is no reason to use data protection solutions that have limitations on devices, file sizes, file types, applications, changing file names or extensions.

Apple recently made the news when an ex-employee was arrested before boarding a plane leaving the country.  How could SecureCircle have helped in the ex-Apple employee charged with stealing self-driving care trade secrets?

The 25-page “the single file” that “serves as the basis for the instant criminal charge” is apparently essential and would be under SecureCircle protection.  Apple could limit access to the file to those individuals that should have access.  Even if an employee with access decided to leave the company, access could be revoked, and any copies (including all derivatives) would no longer be accessible including any file on personal devices or in the cloud.

File access attempts are logged for detailed monitoring and reporting.  Compliance officers can review the data in real-time and execute automated orchestration responses to suspicious activity.

Additionally, SecureCircle’s data protection is not focused on files.  SecureCircle actually protects the content within a file.  When a user copies content from a protected file such as a spreadsheet and pastes the content into a presentation, the presentation will assume the same access control permissions as the original spreadsheet.  Allowing users to continue to work as usual, but automatically protecting the content.  The automatic derivative protection includes protecting files created using Save-As or even saving Word files as PDF.

Many of SecureCircle’s customers fall into two categories.  Whether protecting IP like the Apple story or compliance requirements for finance, healthcare, & SecureCircle is capable of protecting and monitoring your essential internal data.
