Leading information security company SearchInForm has partnered with Condyn to bring its next generation data leak prevention technology to the African market.
The benefit of the system is based on the principle – one cannot prevent what one doesn’t know about.
Therefore, it also takes into consideration social media and other communication channels used daily in organisations.
What SearchInform and Condyn are presenting to the market is the means to be able to monitor all communication channels, employee behaviour and control over technology resources and devices.
Businesses can track how communication equipment and devices are used, even if these are used outside the business.
One of the system’s distinguishing features is the architectural design. It prevents anything from being leaked – whether it is encrypted or not. The system is not linked to the Internet and even updates are done in a secure manner without opening any links into the Internet. The system is also PCI compliant which is extremely important.
The entire design is of value to any organisation, whether from an Information security perspective or even an operational point of view. The information gathered can increase productivity, structuring and much more in any organisation big or small.
Jorina van Rensburg, Managing Director at Condyn, said the system is unique because it offers data leak prevention but can also be used to strengthen various other aspects in the organisation from HR to finance.
“It can help with regards to KPI and KPA management, how much time is being spent on critical business operations and how much is being wasted, said van Rensburg.
“In tough economic times, this can be a huge saving. So, in that respect, we are emphasising its ‘money leak prevention’ value-add component.
“We are extremely excited with the SearchInform partnership. The SearchInform solution is in a league of its own when it comes to fraud and risk management in organisations and I strongly recommend that C-Level should take risk management within the organisation more seriously.”
