Data loss a growing concern says CSC

Responding to what it says is growing market concern over the potential for data loss, CSC, a global provider of technology-enabled solutions and services, has launched a data loss prevention (DLP) service in collaboration with Symantec, to identify, monitor and proactively protect confidential data.

CSC says that in today’s unstable economic climate, it is imperative that enterprise organisations understand the value of their information assets and manage them appropriately as data loss can seriously threaten customer confidence, brand integrity and bottom line.

The company says its solution is an integrated part of its Protected Enterprise portfolio of
security solutions that reduces the risk of data loss and supports compliance mandates to monitor and ensure data security.

According to CSC, recent findings by leading industry research firms indicate that data loss is a rapidly growing concern for the market. It says the Identity Theft Resource Center announced in January this year a 47 percent increase in security breaches from 2007 to 2008, with “data on the move” and “accidental exposure,” both of which are addressed by a DLP solution, accounting for 35 percent of the breaches with an identifiable cause.
In addition, says CSC, the InfoPro’s “Information Security Wave 10 – Industry Profile Report,” issued in December last year, showed that FORTUNE 1000 companies were indicating DLP as a top information security pain point and a top initiative for 2009.

David Dzienciol, senior director, enterprise sales and channels, for Symantec Australia and New Zealand says CSC is one of the first partners enabled to deliver consulting and services for the Symantec DLP solution in Australia.

Dzienciol said that more than ever, Australian organisations were placing an increased focus on data loss and Symantec together with CSC offered customers comprehensive solutions and services that discover, monitor and protect confidential information wherever it is stored or used.

And, Lawrence Ostle, director, global security solutions, CSC Australia says Australia’s regulatory requirements are still significantly lighter than those of their North American and European counterparts, which paves the way for Australian businesses to implement appropriate DLP mechanisms on their own terms and timelines before regulations are mandated.

“In particular, Government and federal clients in Australia are looking to leverage the intelligence of DLP services and technologies to help them manage their compliance requirements,” he claimed.
“With DLP services, federal agencies can be provided with the assurance that the implemented controls and business processes are working efficiently and effectively.”
CSC says its DLP solution, powered by Symantec’s technology, provides clients with a comprehensive, flexible and customisable service that supports data-related regulatory compliance requirements for global organisations and a range of industries.

According to CSC, the solution, which includes centrally managed DLP capabilities, prevents
sensitive data from leaving a client’s network through e-mail or Web services, blocks the copying of such data to USB devices, CD/DVDs and local drives, as well as preventing it from being electronically printed or faxed.

James Menendez, vice president of CSC’s global security solutions organisation, says the solution expands the options that enterprise businesses have to address, what he called, “this ever-increasing challenge.”
