Lumension Security(TM) Announces Availability of Podcast About Evolving Threats to Proprietary Government Information and Best Practices for Data Protection

Vice President of Federal Solutions Outlines Emerging Security Challenges, Essential Components to a Sound Data Protection Strat

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 04/29/08 -- Lumension Security(TM), Inc., a leading global security management company formed by the combination of PatchLink® Corporation and SecureWave® S.A., today announced the availability of a podcast titled, "Protecting Agency Data from Loss or Theft." The podcast features a discussion with Steve Antone, Lumension's vice president of federal solutions, about evolving threats to sensitive information, best practices for implementing an effective data security strategy and how Lumension's best-of-breed endpoint security solutions help government agencies protect information. The podcast is available online at: http://www.lumension.com/request_form.jsp?id=135140&metadataId=135140.

"Thanks to an increasing number of telecommuters and advancements in removable storage media, today's network perimeters within government agencies and commercial organizations continue to dissipate. In addition, most high-profile security incidents involve some sort of insider improprietary, from accidental loss of information to malicious activity," said Antone. "As a result, IT administrators face new security challenges and the need for creating sound data protection strategies is further exacerbated. By setting over-arching policies for acceptable device use, deploying additional layers of security to understand the content's sensitivity and implementing strong encryption, organizations can safeguard against the loss or theft of proprietary information."

Lumension Security's Sanctuary Device Control is the industry's most complete solution for addressing the security challenges posed by the use of removable storage media. Sanctuary enables organizations to create a whitelist of allowed devices, denying all others by default and protecting against data leakage, introduction of malware and other threats. Sanctuary's ability to granularly define permissions and its comprehensive logging capabilities allow administrators to enforce acceptable device-use policies and gain visibility into who is accessing what data and where it is being moved.

"Lumension's Sanctuary has long been the industry's leading device control solution, but we are always seeking ways to improve our offerings to meet evolving data security threats and compliance requirements. As a result, we have expanded Sanctuary beyond its core capabilities to help government agencies and other organizations ensure that their data is secure," said Antone. "Lumension has formed several key partnerships in this area, including with PGP to bolster the encryption on the information itself.

"In addition, we have partnered with Websense to inspect content to determine its sensitivity level. By integrating the best-of-breed functionality from PGP and Websense into Sanctuary, Lumension offers a comprehensive, multi-layered solution for complete data protection."
