Document sanitisation aided by SECURE ICAP Gateway.

With secure information so frequently coming into businesses, it is becoming increasingly vital to prevent it from leaking out.

Clearswift's new SECURE ICAP Gateway, using Apative Redaction technology, is able to automatically identifies and removes sensitive data, without the requirement for human intervention, alongside standard content filtering and data loss prevention features.

The SECURE ICAP Gateway provides advanced content filtering and data loss prevention features such as structural and document sanitisation. It can support integration with the Clearswift IG Server to provide full and partial document fingerprinting.

Heath Davies, chief executive at Clearswift said: "It is Clearswift's focus to protect the critical information of our customers. Partnering with Blue Coat ensures that the new SECURE ICAP Gateway's innovative and unique Adaptive Redaction capabilities can work in concert with anti-malware and Data Loss Prevention to provide our mutual customers with an integrated gateway solution offering. We are excited to be able to offer the SECURE ICAP Gateway solution to businesses around the world."

Clearswift has also partnered with Blue Coat Systems, a market leader in Business Assurance Technology, to fully integrate the SECURE ICAP Gateway with the Blue Coat ProxySG appliances to provide a robust, unified information security solution. As a Business Assurance Technology partner, Clearswift is working with Blue Coat to bring together the best technologies in the industry and build a superior security ecosystem that empowers business.

Blue Coat Proxy SG appliances act as a secure web gateway and provide threat protection and policy enforcement with granular controls. Via secure ICAP connections, Blue Coat ProxySG appliances provide integrated support for technologies such as Anti-Virus, Data Loss Prevention, and Identity & Access Management, allowing enterprises to build a layered defence. Connecting the SECURE ICAP Gateway to the ProxySG appliances provides an innovative gateway approach that protects inbound and outbound communications from web threats and data leaks.

Carla Arend, program director European data centre software, IDC said: "The effective protection and management of information is a core task of the IT security department. IDC believes that the key to successful implementation and operation of critical information protection solutions like DLP is to use automated solutions that scale without manual intervention, produce the lowest possible number of false positives and do not inhibit user productivity."
