SecureAge's SecureData Complements Microsoft SharePoint with Automatic Protection for Sensitive Data

Singapore, 08 May 2012 - SecureAge Technology, a developer of military-grade, enterprise data security solutions, announced today SecureData is successfully tested for use with Microsoft SharePoint, automatically protecting sensitive data for corporate users at work, at rest and in motion, all without user intervention. SecureData is a single, cost-effective solution that independently provides synergistic protection for any concern in data security and data access visibility for SharePoint repositories, servers, applications, and databases.

Microsoft SharePoint is a powerful yet flexible collaboration platform for enterprises, small and large. Many enterprises have found locally and cloud-hosted SharePoint solutions to be great at developing internal communities, document and knowledge sharing, and business intelligence. With the right configuration, SharePoint may be a great way for teams and colleagues to get a jumpstart on information and knowledge access, as well as developing and growing an intelligence footpath that simply works.

"Customers now demand for the ability to create their own customized collaboration environment out of standard building blocks. These tools are becoming increasingly vital and inseparable for business across all management layers. Unfortunately this dependency also creates security concerns as collaborative environments have also become the main repository for business critical documents and other key sensitive data. As a result, proper security and data loss prevention measures is a firm requirement and by no means a luxury, " says Ang Poon Wei, Senior Market Analyst, Enterprise Infrastructure, IDC Asia/Pacific.

"SharePoint may be a convenient collaboration platform although it does require technical proficiency to reduce data security challenges to the minimum," said Dr Teow-Hin Ngair, CEO, SecureAge Technology. "Very often, security breaches are the result of negligence by irresponsible employees and sniffing of sensitive data by curious administrators. Such security concerns can be fully addressed by SecureData for SharePoint, a single and cost-effective way of securing data for SharePoint servers, applications and databases. Organizations no longer resort to deploying various security solutions, which are extremely costly and can be unmanageable."

Secured Document Management
SecureData for SharePoint, with its proprietary 3P (Proactive, Pervasive and Persistent) data protection technology, ensures that data stored in the SharePoint repositories is automatically encrypted without any user's involvement; and the data is continuously encrypted at work, at rest and in motion. Data is encrypted from the point it was first created to the point it gets modified, moved, or copied to other storage media, including USB flash drives, external hard drives, or uploaded to SharePoint server. SecureData is so seamless and transparent that users do not have to consciously invoke cumbersome security measures to get their work done. It also relieves an organization's burden of educating their employees how best to use SharePoint. Most importantly, it prevents unwanted sniffers from stealing useful information and mitigates the risks of data leakage.

Secured Document Sharing
SecureData for SharePoint enables secure file sharing between SharePoint users. Users simply create a shared folder in a SharePoint document library and specify a list of legitimate users in which the data will be encrypted for. This ensures that only authorized users with the right key is able to access and decrypt the files in the SecureData shared folder. Hence, curious administrators or any other sniffer attempting to open the encrypted files, will only see randomized files that are undecipherable without the proper user encryption key.

Secured Database
SecureData for SharePoint tightly integrates proprietary 3P data protection with Application Binding to securely encrypt all the content databases on the server machine. Application Binding allows SharePoint users to specify rules that bind SharePoint databases to only SharePoint Application, thereby preventing any other application from accessing the databases. There is no avenue for administrators to copy out or snoop for sensitive information when performing backups.

Visibility of SharePoint Application and Data Access
SecureData for SharePoint provides a complete data access audit log to continuously monitor the movement of SharePoint application execution and data access. The audit trail provides detailed information of every file accessed by the SharePoint application, moving of information to external devices, file ownership information, and blocked operations. If the log shows activities that deviate from pre-determined application execution or data access, administrators will be able to derive comprehensive intelligence from the logs to help accelerate any forensic investigation. This also helps to mitigate the risk from advanced malware by allowing easy and fast identification of potential threats that are in progress.

Availability
SecureData for SharePoint is commercially available immediately through biz@secureage.com.
