Kazeon Announces Data Security Solution

Dec 19, 2006

Kazeon, a provider of data privacy and security challenges, has announced a comprehensive Data Security solution consisting of products and services to help organizations identify security risks. The Kazeon IS1200-ECS, coupled with a new Risk Assessment Service for Non Public Personal Information, is designed to help organizations prevent sensitive customer information from making its way into the wrong hands.

The IS1200-ECS scours laptops, desktops, and corporate networks for non-public personal data located anywhere on the network, red-flagging sensitive data that is at risk and/or in non-compliance with industry regulations. The new Risk Assessment Service is designed to enable companies to identify risks within their environment and take action. Kazeon's IS1200-ECS is designed to ensure that sensitive, business critical, and confidential information residing on desktops, laptops, and corporate networks is identified and managed. Kazeon can enable companies to discover sensitive information irrespective of physical location. Kazeon monitors and discovers sensitive data residing on network shares, laptops, and desktops. Kazeon can open hundreds of file and document types, including PST files, MS Word documents, Adobe PDF, and more. The Kazeon Risk Assessment Service is a two-week program during which Kazeon consultants will utilize the IS1200-ECS to index and search up to 5 terabytes of information for social security numbers, credit card numbers, and client account numbers. The system flags non-public personal information and Kazeon consultants then provide reports that alert companies to potential security risks. The service is available at a cost of $17,500, which includes the installation and de-installation of the IS1200-ECS.

The IS1200-ECS includes accelerator templates for healthcare, financial services, high tech manufacturing and data privacy. Accelerator templates enable customers to proactively mitigate risk for specific regulatory and business requirements such as HIPAA, SEC 17a-4, SOX, and the PCI data security standard. The IS1200-ECS is a product that can extract information residing within hundreds of standard and non-standard file formats. Additionally, the IS1200-ECS supports information extraction from file types regularly used in insurance and healthcare, including the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) format standard, which is commonly used in medical imaging within the healthcare industry. The Kazeon Risk Assessment Service and IS1200-ECS are currently available.
