October 15, 2012 Selects Covertix's SmartCipher

Covertix, a provider of File-Level Information Security Solutions, recently announced that its SmartCipher has been selected by, a company that provides online private sales solutions.

SmartCipher is a file-level rights management application that secures and monitors confidential documents and sensitive data, by traveling with the file, inside and outside the organization. SmartCipher automatically tags digital assets according to file location, content and context, continuously tracking and securing these assets. SmartCipher combines the advantages of Information Rights Management (IRM) and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) systems.

It is already successfully securing the digital assets of companies across Europe.

"As opposed to most available security solutions that require the document owner to activate security policies, SmartCipher provides automatic protection transparent to users" said Covertix CEO Doron Zinger. "Thus it provides the best available solution to security threats resulting from authorized users accidentally or maliciously sharing sensitive documents. SmartCipher combines the advantages of a Rights Management system with the discovery features of a DLP system."

The solution operates in two modes – Active Mode and Shadow Mode. Active Mode is the protective, file-level enforcer of an organization's rules and policies. It controls access to files, wherever they travel, and controls access whether files are online or offline.

SmartCipher's Shadow Mode performs file Tracking and file Surveillance, traveling with the file, tracking and monitoring file behavior at any point of use.

Nicolas Pellegrin, Information Security Officer at, said, "Covertix fulfilled all of our expectations. We managed to protect our business-critical information with minimal interruption to operations."

Meanwhile, Covertix has been selected by UBM Channel and CRN magazine as a 2012 Emerging Security Vendor. This annual list features the most innovative vendors who deliver easy-to-use technology and high margins to value-added resellers. Each organization included in the CRN Emerging Technology Vendor List represents a new partnership and go-to-market opportunity for solution providers looking to identify new vendor partners.
