RSA, The Security Division of EMC, and Lumension Team Up To Help Businesses Better Secure Sensitive Data

By building DLP technology into the infrastructure, RSA and Lumension plan to be able to offer customers a complete data protection solution

BEDFORD, Mass. and SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC) and Lumension, a global leader in endpoint management and security today announced the execution of an agreement to help organizations better protect sensitive information and share it in a more secure manner. The businesses plan to work together to further expand information-aware capabilities into the IT infrastructure by embedding parts of the RSA Data Loss Prevention Suite into Lumension products.

Organizations are faced with the challenge of explosive digital data that needs to be secured and managed, along with increased collaboration and support for mobile and open devices and platforms. There are point solutions that can address these challenges, but they require that multiple policies and technologies be pulled together and independently managed, which is costly and complex. To help address these issues, RSA and Lumension plan to work together to provide the market with a more robust and comprehensive data protection solution that will be designed to help provide greater data security with less complexity, reduced total cost of ownership, and less impact to business productivity. By building DLP technology into the infrastructure, RSA and Lumension plan to be able to offer customers a complete data protection solution from gateway to endpoint with common policies and common classifications of sensitive data.

"Organizations are looking for ways to leverage their existing infrastructure to prevent threats that originate externally and internally," said Charles Kolodgy, research vice president for Security Products at IDC. "The collaboration between RSA and Lumension is designed to provide organizations the capability to deploy granular policies on permissible data protection activity on the endpoints without the need to install multiple agents resulting in simplified security operations and management."

As part of their technical agreement, Lumension will license the RSA Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Suite software development kit (SDK), with the goal of building RSA DLP classification technology and expert RSA DLP policy libraries into future versions of its Lumension Device Control product module. The RSA DLP SDK would also be engineered to enable Lumension endpoint security products to work seamlessly with the rest of RSA's DLP offerings for networks and datacenters. The goal of the resulting integration and collaboration would be designed to deliver the following capabilities:

-- A Common DLP Policy from network gateway to storage to endpoint and onto removable media such as USB devices and recordable CD/DVD ROM. -- Comprehensive content awareness across data transferred off the endpoint and onto removable media. This would enable organizations to not only apply policy to file types but to also apply policy to data within file types such as social security numbers etc. -- Ability to define highly granular polices on permissible activity and data types on the endpoint without impacting organizational productivity. -- Single console, single agent solution that increases visibility across data location, policy and movement while reducing administrative burden.

"Companies continue to struggle to protect sensitive data across the enterprise," said Christopher Young, senior vice president of products at RSA, The Security Division of EMC. "RSA is continuing to expand our ecosystem of DLP partners that can help solve this problem, by building security into the infrastructure as opposed to bolting on costly and complex point tools. Our relationship with Lumension, along with our strategic partnership with Microsoft and Cisco are designed to help customers protect sensitive information as it moves within and across organizational boundaries."

"Today, businesses need more agility in ensuring their workforce can be as productive as possible. However; agility no longer needs to come with an increased risk of data loss or breach," said Rich Hlavka, senior vice president of business development for Lumension. "This collaboration with RSA will eventually provide our customers with enhanced data protection capabilities from content aware device control to a complete end-to-end DLP solution that leverages market leading DLP technology from RSA, and superior endpoint management and security solutions from Lumension. We believe this new enhanced solution will be providing superior data loss protection with less TCO while affording maximum business productivity."
