Xbridge Systems Partners With nexTier Networks On DLP

XbSecure uses nexTier technology to provide real-time monitoring, control, and protection of confidential data
(Mt View, CA) February 22nd 2010 - Expanding its market strategy and capabilities, Xbridge Systems has entered into a strategic partnership with nexTier Networks to deliver XbSecureTM, an Advanced Content Aware DLP solution to the Data Security market segment.

The XbSecureTM product from Xbridge Systems is powered by nexTier Networks' award winning, patent pending, 4th generation DLP technology. nexTier Networks creates next generation DLP monitoring, control, and protection technologies for data in motion throughout the enterprise. XbSecureTM utilizes nexTier technology to provide real-time monitoring, control, and protection of confidential data in a manner and depth of analysis that has yet to be realized by the Data Security Market.

Ray Williams Jr., President and CEO of Xbridge Systems, has founded over 60 companies in Silicon Valley, and is excited about the combined product offering that will be created by this partnership. Ray said: "When we combine Xbridge Systems' mainframe expertise and data discovery capabilities with nexTier Networks' revolutionary DLP technology, this strategic partnership between nexTier and Xbridge will enable a cost-effect extension of this DLP technology to protect the mainframe environment, enabling the first truly enterprise-wide compliance solution to meet PCI, HIPAA, SOX, and other data security directives."

Ray Williams has a legendary track record of creating and investing in companies that provide disruptive technologies to a marketplace. From co-founding Amdahl with Gene Amdahl in 1967, to pioneering revolutionary medical technologies, Ray has consistently identified critical market trends, and believes strongly that current methods to secure sensitive information in "open systems" fall far short of nexTier's advanced DLP capabilities, and none have the ability to effectively translate into adequate protection of mainframe environments.

"Currently, over 60% of business critical data resides on the mainframe." Ray continued: "With that percentage continuing to grow, and with enterprise data storage requirements increasing at an exponential rate, there will soon be an avalanche of need for a cost-effective DLP solution to properly secure the mainframe. We believe these expanded security requirements will materialize much sooner than many may expect, and the strategic partnership between Xbridge and nexTier will place us in the ideal position to provide the most secure, robust, and cost-effective enterprise-wide DLP solution to the market."
