Safe-T’s Box (News - Alert) 5.0, a data exchange platform, is now available from the Israel-based company, offering increased protection of sensitive data. In addition, the version can secure data in business applications, data repositories and cloud services.
Safe-T says the version is “the only secure data exchange solution that does not require sensitive data to be stored in the DMZ” -- Demilitarized Zone or perimeter network. The products from Safe-T are targeted to such sectors as financial, healthcare and manufacturing.
Looking at the benefits, the Safe-T platform features RSAccess front-end technology, which means there is no need to open incoming ports in the firewall. That reduces the threat of data breaches and makes regulation compliance simpler.
Also, files are not exposed to an external threat during data scanning because it is performed in an isolated network segment that is not in the DMZ or local area network.
In addition, Safe-T Box 5.0 enables business applications, such as Microsoft SharePoint, Oracle (News - Alert) and Salesforce, to share data with users and other applications across enterprise and cloud storage solutions. It has, too, different methods of authentication such as SAML, Open ID, Active Directory, LDAP and a built-in authentication server.
Shared data is monitored, and users can get audits and keep track of who accessed data and when they did it, the company said. Another feature is an advanced, secure mail gateway which provides email attachment data scanning for viruses and malware.
"With heightened online collaboration and the rise in enterprise mobility, sensitive corporate data is highly vulnerable," Ronen Kenig, vice president of Marketing and Product Management at Safe-T, explained in a statement. "At Safe-T we are committed to developing easy to use [technology] and implement tools that enable IT managers to enforce security policies efficiently and effectively while preventing the high cost and brand erosion caused by data breaches."
