As Georgia's third-largest credit union, Georgia's Own has more than $1 billion in assets and more than 120,000 members representing over 400 sponsoring companies. As the company's 260 employees have increased their interactions with third-party consultants over the years, Georgia's Own faced growing concerns about the security of outbound information. Based on extensive research into data loss prevention technology and solutions, Georgia's Own Credit Union selected Code Green's CI-1500 Content Inspection Appliance.
"We have been evaluating DLP technology since its infancy a few years ago, and the primary requirements for us were highly flexible data inspection capabilities, ease of administration, and price," said Scott McCall, chief information officer at Georgia's Own Credit Union. "The CI-1500 appliance makes it easy to classify and inspect our SQL-based data, and we believe that as a company, Code Green has the best approach to evolving DLP capabilities over time."
After deploying the CI-1500 appliance, McCall's staff created content inspection policies for the system based on SQL queries of the institution's database that produced highly specific descriptions of sensitive data. Based on these policies, the Code Green appliance performs ongoing content inspection to ensure that no sensitive data can be transmitted outside of the network via web mail, e-mail, or other means. Corporate e-mail is encrypted using the CI-1500's built-in e-mail encryption engine and integration with ZixCorp's (NASDAQ: ZIXI) encryption key server.
"Code Green's exclusive focus on data loss prevention technology has allowed us to deliver superior content inspection capabilities with greater ease of use and simple, value-based pricing," said Rod Murchison, vice president of marketing and strategic alliances at Code Green Networks. "As customers like Georgia's Own Credit Union have found, our efforts have resulted in solutions that quickly and cost-effectively eliminate data loss concerns."
