AMES, IA -- (April 20, 2009) -- Palisade Systems, a leading provider of data loss prevention products and services, announced today the quarterly results of their 5-Day Secure Assessment Program. From January through March 2009, Palisade's PacketSure data loss prevention appliance uncovered over 525,000 compliance violations.

The assessments, which are performed at no cost, analyze data loss and other security compliance vulnerabilities at small to medium size U.S. businesses, including healthcare, education, financial services and government entities. The program is designed to help organizations understand the frequency, method(s), and remediation options of data loss occurring on their networks.

How the program works: Following an in-depth five-day assessment period using Palisade's PacketSure appliance to collect information, a report is produced documenting the data leakage that occurred. Below are the registered data leaks uncovered by PacketSure while performing the assessments in January, February and March of 2009. "The most recent results from our 5-Day Secure Assessment program shows that there is a clear need in the SMB market for better DLP solutions to protect their sensitive data," said Christian Renaud, CEO and President of Palisade Systems. "In this kind of economy more than ever, the slip of a credit card or social security number into the wrong hands could be devastating. Palisade's 5-Day Secure Assessments expose the extreme amount of data leakage occurring across industries that could be prevented with an appliance such as PacketSure."
