October 5, 2010 — GigaTrust Connects the Best of Both Security Worlds – DLP and ERM


GigaTrust announces the availability of the GigaTrust DLP Protector and RMS plug-in for Symantec DLP

Herndon, VA — October 5, 2010 — GigaTrust, the market leader in Enterprise Rights Management (ERM) content protection software solutions that enhance and extend Microsoft’s Rights Management Services (RMS), today announced product availability of the GigaTrust DLP Protector and GigaTrust RMS Plug-in in support of the Symantec Data Loss Prevention 10.5 solution.

According to Gartner, “Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) continues to be the strongest overall enterprise DLP capability”. The continually growing data lose prevention market has complimentary ties with ERM. Enterprises that use DLP to filter email traffic can automatically protect documents containing sensitive content with an RMS template without the need to involve the end user. The DLP discovery features that search across file servers or enterprise-wide desktops and laptops can invoke the GigaTrust RMS Plug-in to automatically protect infringing documents. Integrating Microsoft’s RMS with DLP control provides enterprises with content that is not only protected at rest and in transit, but now while in use.

“Organizations want to extend their protection of sensitive data by leveraging their investments in enterprise rights management controls and combining it with data loss prevention,” said Rich Dandliker, Director of Product Management at Symantec Corporation. “The integrated GigaTrust Plug-in for Symantec Data Loss Prevention provides content protection from Microsoft RMS using the policies and control of our solution.”

The GigaTrust DLP Protector and the GigaTrust RMS Plug-in for Symantec Data Loss Prevention 10.5 link Microsoft RMS to Symantec DLP to leverage the existing investment and deployment of Symantec DLP in the enterprise as the use of Rights Management is launched and expanded inside and outside the organization. It is a total solution that ensures persistent content protection and data loss prevention.

GigaTrust DLP Protector and GigaTrust RMS Plug-in for Symantec DLP provide:

  • Server-based plug-in in support of the Symantec DLP solution, which offers discovery at the client end-point, server, and network
  • Seamless integration
  • Connection between RMS policy and Symantec DLP Smart Response Rules
  • Automatic protection of files that have been moved to a designated network file share for storage and redistribution
  • Assignment of a unique protection policy to each file share with the option to include the share’s subfolders
  • Automatic application of templates—each template includes a list of predetermined users and RM rights which are then applied to all documents in the designated folders
  • Examination of content to administer all functions, including Stop, Send, and Notification
  • Flexible choice between blocking a file, allowing a file to pass through, or applying rights protection before a file is delivered

“Clients are looking for continuous and interwoven security solutions that offer full protection,” said Darryl Worsham, V.P. of Business Development and Partner Products at GigaTrust. “The GigaTrust DLP Protector and RMS Plug-in for Symantec DLP provides the seamless solution needed to bring together the leading RMS and DLP venders in a more unified way.”
