The New Mexico Energy Federal Credit Union has deployed data loss prevention services provider Code Green Networks’s CI-750 content inspection appliance to protect its network against data loss.
As deployed in November 2008, the CI-750 appliance inspects content moving over the network as well as at network endpoints. Based on policies created by the credit union, the CI-750 appliance and CI Agent endpoint software blocks unauthorized transfers of sensitive data and encrypts sensitive data being sent via the credit union’s corporate e-mail system. The credit union’s CI-750 appliance integrates with cloud-based e-mail encryption key servers from Cisco Systems, according to Code Green Networks.
Richard Lipari, IT officer at the New Mexico Energy Federal Credit Union, said: We knew that data loss prevention (DLP) would give us extra protection against accidental data loss, but most of the products we looked at were far too expensive and complex. Code Green offered us a solution that did all the things we wanted at a fraction of the cost of the other systems.
Rod Murchison, vice president of marketing and strategic alliances at Code Green Networks, said: There are thousands of companies like the New Mexico Energy Federal Credit Union that work with sensitive financial, healthcare, and other types of information, and yet do not have the IT staff or other resources to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a DLP solution.
