Reconnex Combines Real-Time Electronic Risk Reporting and Comprehensive Forensic Analysis

Monday 7 February 2005 19:58 CET | News

Radically simplifying the task of electronic risk management for Fortune 1000 corporations and large government agencies, Reconnex today announced its inSight platform, an integrated solution that can accurately identify and mitigate security threats originating from within an enterprise 20x faster than alternatives.

Consisting of the iController content registration appliance, the iGuard content analyzer appliance, and e-Risk Module (ERM) policy engines and reporting templates, the inSight platform provides a meaningful context for electronic risk that, for the first time, empowers the non-technical user with knowledge that is actionable. Beyond their legal and liability ramifications, electronic risks can quickly spiral into larger operational risk issues, including the loss of competitive advantage through the accidental or intentional disclosure of intellectual property. The inSight platform is the only solution to provide total visibility into internal risks, through its multi-faceted approach to electronic risk management: -- Register any type of confidential information for accurate detection of breaches -- Detect risks with high-speed content analysis and sophisticated policy engines for real-time alerting of policy violations -- Remediate risks with state-of-the-art forensic capabilities, allowing after-the-fact analysis of trends and events contributing to confidentiality breaches, and -- Report and quantify a companys exposure, with standardized reporting templates that communicate cost of exposures to the key business stakeholders, while maintaining a record for compliance regulations Register, Detect, Remediate and Report Electronic Risks, in Real-Time Reconnexs inSight platform provides real-time, comprehensive visibility into the information leaving an enterprise network to identify disclosures that can cause devastating financial losses and irreparable competitive damage. The inSight platform is an integrated solution of three different product components that work together in the following ways. The Reconnex iController enables organizations to register all types of sensitive or proprietary content, whether these are customer records or design files stored in a database, intellectual property stored in a source code repository, or a sensitive email created by a user. Using Reconnexs patented Document Biometrics(TM) technique that creates thousands of overlapping digital signatures to register content, the iController creates a unique digital fingerprint for each piece of information registered. The iController can fingerprint virtually any type of digital data, including graphical or textual formats, office documents, PDFs, source code, emails, images or multimedia files. The iController does not store a companys confidential information within the registration appliance; instead it stores the unique digital signatures associated with the files and securely destroys all copies of the files. The iController stores these signatures in its database repository and broadcasts updates of the signature database to all Reconnex iGuards deployed throughout an enterprise network. Armed with the signature database record from the iController and its high-speed content analysis engine, the iGuard captures and stores all the content leaving the network, resolving confidentiality breaches associated with electronic risk policies or registered content in real-time. When sensitive information travels somewhere defined as off-limits, the iGuard identifies the breach and signals an alert at wire speed. By using Reconnexs Document Biometrics(TM) technique, the iGuard can also recognize complete, partial, or cut-and-pasted content from any electronic communication. For example, if registered content were copied into the body of an e-mail, Webmail, Instant Message or another document or image file, the Reconnex iGuard would detect it. The iGuard is a passive, purpose-built hardware appliance that can be deployed off of a switch or router port, without ever impacting network performance or business workflow. It is the only solution capable of processing all content, in real-time on a
