RANCHO SANTA MARGARITA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Security threats are a critical business risk to all organizations, regardless of size or industry. Trying to protect just the network is not adequate. Today’s organizations need a new solution to effectively defend against increasingly targeted and sophisticated cyber security attacks.
Advanced threats are becoming more commonplace but current security strategies haven’t kept pace. According to The Global State of Information Security® Survey 2014, a worldwide study by PwC, CIO magazine, and CSO magazine, detected security incidents have increased 25 percent when compared to the previous year, yet many organizations are relying on yesterday’s technologies.
“We are defining true data centric security,” said Mark O’Hare, Chief Executive Officer, Security First Corp. “We’re committed to providing the new standard for data security software that allows our customers to safely and securely transmit and store data in any storage medium, including cloud. Our SPxSHARC™ solution renders data unreadable, unusable, unintelligible, and totally protected should and when your network protection fails.”
According to the 2014 Gartner Report “Big Data Needs a Data-Centric Security Focus,” more than 80 percent of organizations will fail to initiate a consolidated data security policy across all their data silos by 2016. This results in potential non-compliance, security breaches and other financial liabilities, not to mention the unquantifiable damage to a company’s reputation.
“Unfortunately, it’s fast becoming ‘when’ and not ‘if’ a security breach happens, and today’s solutions focused solely on network or perimeter security are no longer good enough. It’s time that we protect what these intruders are really after – your company’s data – beyond the firewall, at the data level,” explained O’Hare.
Security First’s patented SPx (Secure Parser extended) technology is at the core of it’s flagship product, SPxSHARC. Providing provably secure data protection (FIPS 140-2 certified) alongside cryptographic random bit splitting, SPxSHARC renders valuable data invulnerable to brute force attacks and provides superior data protection in all storage environments, including cloud. No large, expensive key storage systems are required and SPxSHARC’s multi-tenancy features allow for improved shared storage and consolidation.
SPxSHARC also allows businesses to maintain compliance with the myriad of regulatory requirements within their industry, including HIPAA, HITECH, FISMA, FERPA, Sarbanes-Oxley and PCI.
SPxSHARC currently has two server-based offerings – Secure and Advanced Secure – all providing “provably secure” data centric protection that easily fits into current environments with no infrastructure changes required.
