SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Code Green Networks, a leading provider of data loss prevention solutions for protecting customer data and safeguarding intellectual property, today announced the availability of the CI-750, its new Content Inspection Appliance designed to bring enterprise-class data loss prevention to smaller organizations and branch offices of large distributed enterprises. The CI-750 combines award-winning features from Code Greens mid-sized business appliance, the CI-1500, in a package designed specifically to meet the challenges of organizations or locations with fewer than 250 network users.
Data protection is a huge concern for organizations of all sizes today with the average cost of a data breach now exceeding $100 dollars per customer record and over $1 million dollars per incident, according to The Ponemon Institute.
Similarly, the latest 2006 CSI/FBI Computer Crime and Security Survey found that data protection ranked as the most critical issue over the next two years, leaving smaller enterprises unprepared and at a clear disadvantage with significantly fewer resources to deal with the problem. In addition to security concerns, both small and large distributed branch offices are grappling to comply with stricter guidelines set forth by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for protecting personal information and recent amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (FRCP) regarding the protection of electronic communications for e-Discovery purposes.
Large enterprises have a critical need for data loss protection solutions, but so do smaller businesses that face significant risks from the loss of sensitive and confidential information, said Michael Osterman, President, Osterman Research. For these small businesses the low cost, plug-and-play installation and enterprise-class feature set of a data loss protection appliance can protect the organization while imposing virtually no additional management burden on IT.
