Glasswall Solutions Launches New E-Discovery and Analytics Solution to Pinpoint and Eradicate File Risk

Glasswall adds to its portfolio of patented information security and risk solutions by giving comprehensive, actionable visibility and scoring of a business's entire file threat footprint

LONDON, February 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Glasswall Solutions, a UK-based information security and risk technology company, announced today the launch of its new e-discovery and analytics solution to pinpoint and eradicate targeted attacks in files. Glasswall's advanced analytics gives real-time, accurate visibility of the risk associated with every document an organisation receives, sends or holds in storage. This visibility means organisations, in the knowledge that common files such as PDFs, MS Office and Image formats are a primary threat vector for zero day threats and advanced persistent threats (APTs), can make faster, more informed decisions about whether to allow, quarantine or normalise and sanitise files used in business every day.

Information security policy is difficult to design and maintain without a granular knowledge of file risk. To be in control, an organisation needs to understand what files it has and assess the risk in order to take the right action. Glasswall's deep level analysis of file-based traffic provides a new level of risk intelligence. By using its configurable dashboard, an organisation can see an exact, prioritised picture of its current threat footprint. Glasswall believes that this intelligence will not only transform policy management but put organisations back in control of file security.

"We oppose the argument, made by some in our industry, that breach is inevitable and that organisations should focus on the speed and cost of remediation rather than well-planned, proactive defences," said Greg Sim, CEO, Glasswall Solutions. "Are we really saying we have lost the fight against cyber criminals, zero day threats and APTs? The world has identified the inadequacy of traditional signature based anti-virus security and that is why we have invested in building an analytical solution that helps organisations to focus resources, proactively maintain compliance and governance standards - and confidently assure their stakeholders around file security."

Glasswall's e-discovery and file analytics is available now. It is already being evaluated by major UK legal, public sector and insurance organisations eager to get more insight into file risk in order to take focused, practical remediation and strengthen their information security posture.
