Covertix Announces New Classification Engine
Individuals can easily classify data assets on the fly with a simple interface to protect them internally or externally at rest or in motion.
Covertix, a leading data-centric security provider, is releasing version 3.10 of SmartCipher™, its real-time dynamic data discovery, classification, governance, control, and encryption solution.
The real-time policy engine spreads the power of classification across the organization. Individuals can classify documents as they are being created or used, in addition to the policies provided companywide by the IT team.
Covertix SmartCipher is completely scalable to any size enterprise requirement, protecting information used and created across and within departments for both the simplest and most complex corporate processes. Exceptionally granular or automated classification are available within the SmartCipher discovery engine and completely customizable based on who, what, when, where, and how.
A single classification – such as confidential – can have multiple policies, such as HR confidential; legal confidential, with access and editing capabilities by internal and external parties, but without allowing any copying; or even IT confidential, where IT personnel can administer security but not see the content of the materials they are securing. Furthermore, SmartCipher can protect information leaving the organization “on purpose,” such as ensuring the security of customers’ own records upon their receipt.
Documents can be protected within any environment in which they are being used – Microsoft Office applications, Google Docs, Google Drive, SharePoint, DropBox, Box, Citrix, Outlook, Office 365, SalesForce, and any browser.
Covertix SmartCipher™ easily imports existing classification and policy structures. If a document contains metadata, such as credit card numbers, it and any documents like it can be automatically classified. Users can select both policies and classifications, while IT admins can determine overall policy structure.
“You cannot protect information until you can classify it,” says Tzach Kaufmann, Covertix founder & CTO. “SmartCipher protects the information immediately upon classification, by person, action, location, context, and more.”
Governance receives an extra boost with this version, as documents can automatically receive customizable water marks and headers display the policies, such as “for internal use only.” Email, too, receives an extra layer of protection where both the messages and the attachments can receive the same or different policies. Colored frames quickly and easily inform the contents’ users about the specific policy classification of files in use, no matter the type or location.
Administration is simple, with one screen for all operations. Users can see the permitted operations, such as copy, paste, print, share, etc. within a specific policy, the internal and external groups who can or cannot perform these actions, and the usage conditions, such as the inability to change the file name or access parameters, such as devices, locations, and times. The “What If” capabilities allow policies to be tested, and policies easily revert to previous versions if the administrator makes an error.
The new version streamlines integration with multiple platforms, such as cloud-access security brokers, IAM, EFFS, and more.
SmartCipher 3.10 will be available this quarter.
