NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 07/30/14 -- Bayshore Networks®, which is setting the standard for operational and security policy for the Internet of Things, today announced that it has extended its Pallaton policy engine with advanced features for High-Value Intellectual Property (IP) Protection. The new features are already being deployed at Fortune 100 enterprises, defense industry contractors, and global media firms.
"Crown jewel protection concerns are now being driven from the board level," said Francis Cianfrocca, Founder & CEO of Bayshore Networks. "This has led us to focus on inspecting corporate document content at an extremely deep level."
Bayshore's High-Value IP Protection solution is based on the Bayshore SE (Secure Enterprise) platform. Because it inspects content at line rate, Bayshore SE mitigates rogue insider and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) to sensitive IP. Its content inspection performance has been benchmarked at faster than 10 Gbps. While traditional Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solutions prevent sensitive content from crossing network boundaries, Bayshore SE provides unprecedented visibility and access control by evaluating the content moving through network choke points.
The key differentiator for Bayshore SE is the flexibility of Pallaton's policy evaluation and enforcement. This flexibility enables enterprises to track usage patterns and to create classifications by people, by document, by traffic, or even by metadata. Customers can create content around any of their classifications and then create policy around it.
Pallaton inspects data transmitted across the network as a result of access to file-repository Web applications, Windows file shares, NFS mounts, email attachments, FTP sites, etc. Inspection is performed at high speed with more detailed reporting than current DLP solutions.
Pallaton rules are quickly configurable -- particularly for organizations that already track their own data content categories. Pallaton inspects Layer 7 content and makes rules-based decisions dynamically, in real-time, enabling policy evaluation to become policy enforcement. With its advanced new features, Pallaton's user-configurable rules have been extended to inspect outside content; competitive solutions offer bundles of signatures that are difficult to customize.
Pallaton's application-layer inspection capabilities now enable it to inspect every level of every document in an archive. Pallaton can extract and inspect content from multi-level archives such as Zips, Tarballs and shell codes, and utilize the customers' existing YARA rules. YARA is a popular tool that helps security professionals identify and classify malware.
