Provilla LeakProof 2.1 Boosts Privacy

Provilla released the latest version of its flagship LeakProof intelligent data leak prevention solution

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- Provilla, Inc., a leading provider of ultra-accurate, intelligent endpoint solutions for data leak prevention, today released the latest version of its flagship LeakProof(tm) intelligent data leak prevention solution, which delivers enhanced privacy and compliance support for customers. Provilla LeakProof 2.1 adds new features to make it easier for organizations to ensure privacy and demonstrate compliance with a broad range of federal, state, and EU regulations.

"Data leak prevention is rapidly becoming a much sought after technology as organizations gain a better understanding of the essential role it can play in helping them achieve compliance with an assortment of regulatory requirements," said Glen Kosaka, vice president of marketing for Provilla. "It is insufficient to close the barn door after the horse has left. To really ensure privacy and compliance, you must stop breaches of data-in-use, not just audit them. As demonstrated by our proven track record with both end-user and OEM customers, no other solution on the market today can match the breadth of coverage, accuracy, and performance of Provilla LeakProof."

Improved Privacy and Compliance Support
Customers can speed their privacy and compliance policy implementation with LeakProof's new pre-defined policy templates, which contain best-practice rule sets designed to address a variety of compliance initiatives such as Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard, Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), among others. Saving time and effort, these templates can be used out of the box or modified to fit an organization's particular needs, such as deciding whether to audit the action, educate the user, or block the action.

Provilla LeakProof 2.1 includes additional intelligent validation modules that help reduce the possibility of false positives. The new modules can be used to verify ABA routing numbers, Canadian social security numbers, and Japanese JCB credit card data, in addition to the current validation of U.S. social security numbers and general credit card data. Provilla's intelligent validation modules go beyond simple pattern recognition by actually verifying these entities to reduce false positives and enhance the user experience. Standard validation modules are being added continuously and are included in the annual subscription for LeakProof 2.1. Customized validation modules are also easily added for specific customer deployments.
