Vente-privee.com Selected Covertix SmartCipher[TM] for Data Leaks Protection
EVEN YEHUDA, Israel, October 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Covertix, an innovative provider of File-Level Information Security Solutions, announced that Vente-privee.com, a global leader in online private sales, has successfully implemented its SmartCipher™ solution to protect its sensitive information.
Information leakage prevention is one of Vente-privee.com priorities. The company needed a security solution that provides control of business data traveling outside the organization's perimeter by email, USB or other mobile device.
Covertix SmartCipher is an independent data-centric security system that protects and monitors sensitive data by traveling with the files inside and outside the organization. The system automatically tags digital assets according to file location, content and/or context, without any involvement of the user, and attaches a patented 'smart policy' to each file, which continuously tracks and secures it. If sensitive information is copied, printed, burned to a CD or downloaded to a USB, the system can either issue an alert or block the activity.
"As opposed to most available security solutions that require the document owner to activate security policies, SmartCipher provides automatic protection transparent to users" said Covertix CEO Doron Zinger, "thus it provides the best available solution to security threats resulting from authorized users accidentally or maliciously sharing sensitive documents. SmartCipher combines the advantages of a Rights Management system with the discovery features of a DLP system."
Mr. Nicolas Pellegrin Information Security Officer at Vente-privee.com said: "Covertix fulfilled all of our expectations. We managed to protect our business-critical information with minimal interruption to operations."
Vente-privee.com founded the online sales event concept and is the global leader in the sector. Specializing in selling brand overstock since 2001, online sales are exclusive to its 16 million members in Europe. With 1,600 employees in 8 European countries, vente-privee.com generated 1.073 billion Euros in gross turnover in 2011. In 2011, the website was launched in the United States in partnership with American Express.
Covertix develops next generation Data-Centric Information Security solutions that provide enterprise organizations with independent file-level surveillance and control, protecting sensitive data wherever it goes, both inside and outside the organization. http://www.covertix.com.
