Whitebox Securitys New Version Accelerates Compliance & Data Governance

WhiteOPSTM increases management oversight, delivers 360O forensics, and provides "What If" analysis

Tel Aviv and Sunnyvale, California, 12 August 2014 Whitebox Securitys WhiteOPSTM version 3.3 further accelerates data governance and compliance with a high-level compliance portal, simplified entitlements and identities forensics, and out-of-the-box best practices, among other features.

Data governance and compliance are critical, says Maor Goldberg, CEO of Whitebox Security. Reducing insurance liability and preventing fines and lawsuits are just a few real-world issues that WhiteOPS directly addresses.

WhiteOPS determines who can and has accessed structured, semistructured, and unstructured data, delivering secure access to ERP, CRM, SharePoint, Exchange, file servers, NAS/SAN, Active Directory, and homegrown applications, no matter the location cloud or in-house to ensure that unauthorized data breaches can be prevented and detected, protecting against internal and external threats.

WhiteOPS determines sensitive data, reviews and authorizes access, tracks data access patterns, and detects unauthorized access in real-time. It treats compliance as an ongoing process, not a single point in time, facilitating compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, PCI, ISO 27001/2, ISO 27799, among other regulations.

The new version offers a multilingual portal for senior management, including an access governance dashboard, giving a high-level overview of activities and intelligent access review. Its simplified 3600 entitlements and identity forensics deliver complete information about entitlements, roles, users, and interconnections, including a What If analysis engine for simulating permissions changes. An easy-to-use self-service for access request saves time for both IT and management.

WhiteOPS now offers out-of-the-box best practices for usage pattern-based, content, and metadata-based data classification to further streamline implementation. The entitlements integration kit allows for easy and automatic collection and analysis of entitlements from every organizational application for structured, unstructured, and semistructured data. The new version also includes application monitors for Google Drive, Alfresco ECM, Siemens Teamcenter (PLM), Hitachi NAS, and EMC Isilon.

Data is free flowing across applications and storage locations, concluded Mr. Goldberg. It needs to be protected and tracked in all its forms, combinations and permutations. Thats what we designed WhiteOPS to do. Every new feature accelerates the process.
