By | October 19, 2006

Protegrity, a provider of enterprise data security management solutions, has released the Defiance 4.2 Software Security suite, the industry’s first-ever integrated security platform to protect databases, files, & web applications in a single offering.

“The chief security officer today is challenged to define enterprise-wide data security policy, ensure enforcement and demonstrate controls for operational risk management across the organization,” said Gordon Rapkin, president & CEO of Protegrity. “The Defiance 4.2 release gives the CSO a single management platform and a common-sense way of defining and enforcing enterprise-wide security policy with a comprehensive compliance and management reporting capability. In addition, this release enhances our strengths in database, file, and web application protection.”

The integration of Defiance DPS data protection, Protegrity VPDisk file security, and Defiance TMS web application threat management, in this integrated suite release, delivers on Protegrity’s Data Security Management strategy of end-to-end protection. With Protegrity’s Defiance Enterprise Security Reporter, security administrators now have the proactive power to view and manage security events at all data protection points, throughout the data lifecycle.

With compliance reports, active dashboards and detailed audit reporting, security officers can now demonstrate the efficacy of their security policies and reduce the number of days required with auditors to satisfy their assessment of the adequacy of internal controls; having all the information they need in one central interface.

Along with this unified control point for reporting and auditing on security events, Defiance 4.2 builds on Protegrity’s Intelligent Escalation functionality for enterprise-wide security response. Events detected by any 4.2 element — DPS, VPDisk or TMS — can trigger alerting and an intelligent threat management escalation at enforcement points, for true protection of sensitive data across the entire organization.

Defiance 4.2 also delivers expanded enterprise protection of, and support for, databases and applications on IBM iSeries (AS/400), and IBM z/OS DB/2 mainframe environments.
