Data leakage prevention solutions have been developed to prevent corporate confidential data from leaking outside the organization. They enable the detection, monitoring, and protection of data in the environments where data is stored (such as file server), transmitted (such as web, e-mail, instant messenger, FTP), and where it is used (such as user computers, USB Flash drives). Various “deep content analysis” techniques are used to detect and protect data. DLP solutions can also be integrated into content filtering solutions.
It has become increasingly difficult to keep the growing data under control. Corporate data, which can be found in many different formats and environments, must first be classified structurally based on the needs of the organization, and the degree of criticality must be determined. Necessary precautions can be taken on this basis to protect critical data.
It is possible to meet this need with data classification solutions. With these solutions, it becomes much easier to determine the class of data and to implement corporate policies. Classification solutions are critical to prevent data leakage.
Credit card information is one of the most sensitive pieces of information that needs to be properly protected in accordance with the PCI DSS standard. However, measures must be taken to protect sensitive information, not only to comply with this standard but also to protect corporate reputation and avoid exposure to credit card theft. Credit card and sensitive information discovery solutions scan all files, shared spaces, e-mails, databases, storage areas in your system to detect the location of sensitive information such as credit card numbers, identity numbers, etc., and guide you to take appropriate action.
Many precautions are taken to prevent people from accessing data that they are not authorized to do. Despite all precautions, there is a small possibility that unauthorized persons may access the data. Against this possibility, data should also be protected even if it falls into the hands of unauthorized persons. For this purpose, encryption and tokenization technologies are utilized.
Format-Preserving Encryption technologies used in this context are a group of solutions that are used to establish encryption mechanisms that do not disrupt the format by using up-to-date and powerful algorithms in accordance with data privacy policies in structural-nonstructural form or transmission, in use or at a stationary state.
HSMs are devices designed to enhance the security of encryption operations and provide suitable environments for storing sensitive information. In addition, they are used in areas such as database encryption, document signing, online banking, EFT transactions, and root key protection. The number of digital signatures that these devices can sign per second is very high. Therefore, they are used in transactions such as electronic invoices and electronic document generation for both performance and security reasons. These devices are preferred to comply with criteria such as PCI DSS, SOX.
Data deletion solutions add a layer of security to endpoint security policies by enabling the secure deletion of IT assets. All deletions are verified and confirmed through an audit trail that is protected against any changes to the data.
Data governance solutions enable full control over unstructured data and increase visibility. With these solutions, it is possible to determine who is accessing the sensitive data and how, and in accordance with access rules, it can be ensured that the employees only access folders and files within their authorization. It is also possible to classify data on a folder basis. With the machine learning feature, identifying unusual access by following the access habits of the users is an added value that such solutions provide.
In information systems, digital certificates and SSH keys have an important role in identifying the identity of assets. To avoid security risks, it is crucial to managing these certificates within a life cycle. Discovery of certificates for all IT assets and keeping their proper inventory, checking the up-to-dateness of algorithms, tracking renewal and cancellation periods are important solutions in this process. In addition, automatic generation of new certificates from internal and external certificate authorities and automatic uploading to IT assets is an important function that can be used in this lifecycle.
File-sharing platforms work to quickly meet increasing file system volumes, file sizes, and sharing needs. While meeting the increasing needs of end-users regarding file access and sharing requests, they also aim to minimize the time spent by IT departments, technological threats, and risks arising from legislation and certification.
To ensure business continuity against a possible failure and cyber attack, organizations should regularly take backups of their data and set up recovery procedures within the scope of business continuity plans. It is an important set of solutions to be able to manage this whole process through software, hardware, and cloud architecture, and an enterprise-level tool.
