By | December 10, 2006

Ingrian(R) Networks, Inc., the leading provider of data privacy solutions, today announced the availability of an education bundle designed to help the higher education market create more robust security policies using hardware-based data encryption and centralized key and policy management.

Ingrian is offering a solution brief and on-demand podcast outlining best practices to help colleges and universities create solid security policies around safeguarding student, faculty and donor sensitive information, such as social security numbers.

A major concern for any higher education institution is the exposure of social security numbers due to having distributed systems that contain these numbers and a variety of additional sensitive student and employee information. To safeguard confidential information and ensure data privacy, universities need to implement data encryption and understand the implications of deploying the various encryption solutions currently available in the market.

“Universities can take a pre-emptive strike against security breaches by tightening security policies to lock out perpetrators. Centralized key and policy management, along with centralized reporting and logging, are critical elements to achieving this and preventing data breaches,” said Karim Toubba, vice president of product management and corporate strategy for Ingrian Networks. “Ingrian DataSecure can help universities safeguard their sensitive data, and these new tools can help security and IT managers learn more about best practices for encryption so that they can make the best decisions based on their specific infrastructure.”

Through the end of August, Ingrian will offer higher education institutions special pricing for its Education i110 DataSecure Bundle. Universities and colleges are eligible to receive the bundle solution for nearly 50% off the current price until August 31, 2006.
