SAN MATEO, Calif, April 7, 2008 /PRNewswire/ — NextLabs(R) Inc., the leading provider of policy-driven, information risk management software for Global 5000 enterprises, announced the immediate availability of Enterprise DLP(TM) 3.0. The host-based data loss prevention system is the industry's first integrated solution with built-in conflict of interest prevention and workflow-driven remediation capability that proactively applies policy to streamline compliance and prevent data loss across endpoints, servers and mobile devices. Its unique identity-driven approach monitors and enforces who can share what data when, where and with whom. Identity-driven DLP enables real-time control over data based on role, user, device, content, application, group, and location — going far beyond traditional surveillance or content blocking solutions.

Enterprise DLP is the only solution that is able to address not only external data loss, but also prevent conflict of interest and data loss within the corporate network (insider risk) at endpoints, between groups of employees, partners and customers. Its host-based Policy Enforcers prevent data loss in real-time on endpoints, servers and mobile devices — even when offline — providing end user feedback and eliminating manual remediation. The system's unique information barrier feature enforces conflict of interest and confidentiality policies between users and groups by dynamically create virtual information barriers ("Chinese Walls") across multiple communication and collaboration channels. This virtual information barrier is critical to ensure compliance with customer contractual obligation such as conflict of interest, confidentiality, and non disclosure agreement; and regulatory requirements such as export control (ITAR, EAR) and banking and securities (ISE Rule 810 — Information Barrier).

Enterprise DLP 3.0 also provides end-users with user and workflow remediation through its Policy Assistants. Policy Assistant is used to incorporate policy education, data protection, validation, and classification into existing end user workflow allowing end-users to self-remediate or automating workflow approval processes before data loss ever occur. Built on the an enterprise policy platform that is compatible with the XACML industry standard, Enterprise DLP 3.0 offers companies the ability to apply a single set of policy and audit reports across endpoints, servers, and mobile devices for multiple platforms and communications channels. Users gain centralized visibility and easier audit as the result of the continuous compliance audit capability where required audit information, such as authorizations, activity, and policy enforcement are continuously collected which simplifies the collection of data and preparation for internal or third party audit.

Key features in Enterprise DLP 3.0 include: — Central Policy Management. The Enterprise DLP Policy Server centralizes policy and system management across all host based enforcers. Policy is created centrally and then deployed to distributed enforcers. A central system management console provides up to date health status for each host. Delegated administration allows each business organization to manage their policy with easy to use graphical tools. — Endpoint DLP for the Mobile Workforce. Enterprise DLP Enforcers run on Windows desktops and laptops to monitor and control user activities which could result in data loss, such as file copies to USB drives. Enterprise DLP Enforcers have advanced mobile features including offline support and dynamic detection of connection type, network location, and remote sessions. Policy can be defined to change permissions depending on if the user is in their home office, in a field office, on the road, or remotely connected to the workstation. Activity logs and policy updates can be delivered to offline devices, securely over the public Internet. — Fact-Based Data Classification. Enterprise DLP applies policy based a data facts, such as data source, location, attributes, content, custom tags or end user classification. Policy can be used to tag documents with attribute data when downloaded or copied, to govern its subsequent use. This capability allows policy to apply precisely to individual data objects based on their attributes to control data access, use, distribution, or to warn users to potential misdirected communications. — Identity Aware. Awareness of identity allows Enterprise DLP to prevent loss that occurs between two internal employees or groups within your organization and allow sensitive information between your employees and external partners or customers as a normal course of business. Enterprise DLP integrates with identity management, such as Microsoft Active Directory or LDAP, and network authentication to recognize employees, partners, and customers and create identity, attribute, or role-based policy that can investigate not only the data, but also the actors of an event to proactively prevent data loss. — Controls for Data Access, Use, and Communications. Policy based control to govern access and use of data based on classification across file servers, document management systems, and even desktops. Policy can also be applied to control communication between parties and data distribution over email, instant messaging, web conferencing, and audio-video calls. Additional controls include duplication, printing, embedding, copy/paste, sharing, and application that use the sensitive data. — Flexible Remediation. Pre-built Policy Assistants for common remediation procedures including policy education and warning, encryption, and approval workflow. Customers can easily add custom remediation actions and workflows to the system. — Comprehensive Enforcement. Enterprise DLP provides a comprehensive set of host-based enforcers for endpoints (Microsoft Windows and Linux), desktop applications (Office, Outlook, Office Communicator), file servers (Windows, Linux NFS, Samba), document management & collaboration (Microsoft SharePoint), email (Outlook & Exchange), and unified communications (Office Communicator, Live Meeting, and Office Communications Server). — Compliance Audit, Reporting, and Incident Response. Enterprise DLP enforcers actively collect data activity across systems and applications allowing IT to simply run reports to determine the effectiveness of policies or view activity summary, trend, and detailed end-to-end data activity, including access, use, and deletion. The central activity journal and analytics tools minimize the need to manually perform audits of data activity or policy enforcement, reducing the cost of responding to auditors, legal inquiry, or a data loss incident investigation.

"This release of Enterprise DLP 3.0 furthers our efforts to provide the most comprehensive information risk management software for the enterprises. Enterprise DLP is the first data loss prevention system with the unique capability to address difficult data protection problems like conflict of interest activities and data loss within the corporate network through our patent-pending identity-driven policies," said Keng Lim, CEO of NextLabs. "Enterprise DLP 3.0 is the most complete host-based DLP solution to support file system, Office, Internet Explorer, Outlook, Office Communicator, LiveMeeting, SharePoint, USB device, FTP, and file share in a single package."
