Fidelis Expands Fidelis Extrusion Prevention System Family

Fidelis XPS Connect includes purpose-built document decoding, content analysis, and content policy definition technologies via a network based, programmatic interface called the Simple Content Inspection Protocol (SCIP)
WALTHAM, Mass. and BETHESDA, Md., April 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Fidelis Security Systems, the leader in next-generation data leakage prevention (DLP) solutions, today announced the extension of its award-winning Fidelis Extrusion Prevention System(R) product line with the release of Fidelis XPS(TM) Connect. This new product leverages the core architecture of Fidelis XPS' patented Deep Session Inspection(TM) platform, including purpose-built document decoding, content analysis, and content policy definition technologies via a network based, programmatic interface called the Simple Content Inspection Protocol (SCIP). Fidelis XPS Connect enables technology vendors of complementary security solutions and Fidelis XPS customers to connect to these leading-edge technologies in order to add content-awareness to their applications with minimal development time, effort, and expense.

"There is a growing demand in the market for security solutions that can enforce policy decisions based not only on the context of an activity, but also on the content of the activity," said Peter George, President and CEO, Fidelis Security Systems. "The unique architecture of our award-winning Fidelis Extrusion Prevention System powers Fidelis XPS Connect--enabling technology vendors to satisfy that demand within their customer base while delivering next-generation, content-aware security solutions quickly and with a minimal investment in development."

Data management and security applications--such as endpoint security, intrusion prevention, access management, messaging, encryption, database security, data discovery/classification, and storage management--or any components of the IT infrastructure that lack the content analysis capabilities necessary to make policy-based decisions regarding the storage, transfer, or movement of enterprise data may utilize Fidelis XPS Connect to easily add business-critical content awareness to non-content aware solutions or applications. Enterprise customers benefit by adding content awareness, or extending their content policies, to internally developed applications and holistically managing all their content-aware security solutions from a single content policy management point.

"As data breaches continue to rise, large enterprises need to be assured their critical business data is secure--no matter what application it's flowing over," Yorgen Edholm, president and CEO, Accellion. "As a premier provider of managed file transfer solutions for the enterprise, giving customers the content-awareness that Fidelis XPS Connect provides as their files move through our system is a unique advantage."

Fidelis XPS Connect is available in two models: Fidelis XPS Connect and Fidelis XPS Connect+. Fidelis XPS Connect includes an integrated Fidelis XPS CommandPost management console, making it an ideal system for development, demonstration, evaluation, and solutions with moderate performance requirements. Fidelis XPS Connect+ is a high-performance system that is the right choice for Fidelis XPS customers with high content analysis performance requirements. Both products are packaged and sold as integrated appliances, complete with hardware, operating system, and application software.
