Cybersecurity Firm Provides Retroactive Security by Removing Access to Email and Files Even after They Have Left a Company's Network

NEW YORK, NY, JUNE 19, 2015 – As data breaches become more commonplace with serious consequences to personal, corporate and national security, it is clear that there is no shortage of accomplished and effective hackers ready to steal data and trade it on the open market.  These breaches end up costing businesses, government agencies and individuals billions of dollars in damages and destroying trust and reputations.

Global Data Sentinel (GDS) has the ability to provide retroactive security to remove access to email and files even after they have left a company’s network; prevent ransomware, a malicious code that locks up computer files until ransom is paid; and work across multi-devices, including PCs, Macs, Smartphones and other mobile devices, such as medical equipment, printers/scanners, and other peripherals.

According to Steven Fadem, Chairman of Global Data Sentinel, “It is clear that hackers will not be stopped until the information that they obtain is rendered useless to them because they can’t access or store it. GDS encrypts data to ensure that it is inaccessible to the hacker even after it has left a company server or has been downloaded to a computer.”

 GDS provides encryption of all data whether it is at rest, in transit or in storage.  It allows for storage of files and databases that can be integrated with existing applications. In addition, GDS has a proprietary hardware solution that integrates with its software to provide secure data streaming to and from any device. It is highly functional, detailed and intuitive for non-technical personnel to use easily. GDS clients are able to track file access, user access, adoption rates, and task management workflow with completely tamperproof auditing. It provides proprietary apps that maintain encrypted data containers on all Window, iOS and Android platforms.

“What’s clear is that yesterday’s methods of  data security – firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems, remote access, two-factor authentication, data leakage prevention – all provide an illusion of protection and false sense of security,” continues John-Philip Galinski and Nigel Walker, GDS co-founders. “GDS is a one-stop, central platform for all security needs for cloud, network, endpoint device, intra-company and intercompany collaboration, and client data sharing and control. Not only is data protected, but infinite levels of versioning, archiving control, and data destruction allow users the benefit of a true backup system, making hackers ineffective in achieving their goals.”

Global Data Sentinel was founded in 2014 with the sole purpose of bringing effective security solutions to data management and control.  GDS utilizes a number of proprietary tools to provide an integrated, centrally-managed solution designed to maintain data security, integrity and confidentiality. It is a total cybersecurity platform for all security needs for cloud, network, endpoint device, intra-company and intercompany collaboration, and client data sharing and retrieving. The GDS technology is currently in early adoption at a major television network, gaming company, consumer electronics hardware manufacturer, cloud host, pharmaceutical company, and media/entertainment enterprise, among others.
