DeviceLock(R) Provides Data Leak Prevention for Skype Communications

DeviceLock Endpoint DLP Suite Software v7.2 Adds Powerful Skype Security Controls

SAN RAMON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/15/12 -- DeviceLock, Inc., a worldwide leader in endpoint data leak prevention (DLP) software, today announced that their Endpoint DLP Suite software v7.2 delivers comprehensive control over Skype communications from corporate endpoint computers to prevent insider data leaks via this globally popular service. In addition, for BYOD solutions based on remote desktop and application virtualization, DeviceLock's new Virtual DLP feature extends the reach of its Skype control to tablets or smartphones on any mobile platform.

"There's been a great deal of interest in the IT security industry lately around finding ways to secure employees' use of Skype," said Vince Schiavo, DeviceLock CEO. "We believe our ability to provide granular controls for Skype security will give organizations a way to allow employees to use Skype for increased productivity, but to do so in a safer and more secure fashion. Our customers will be able to set and enforce policies for employees' use of Skype rather than trying to block the service altogether."

DeviceLock's DLP Suite software provides the ability to set and enforce selective contextual and content-aware filtering policies for Skype instant messages and attached file transfers.

The content of outgoing Skype chat messages and attached files is monitored in real-time and analyzed for compliance with corporate DLP policy. If a violation is detected, the transfer of the outgoing instant message or file can be blocked and a real-time security alert can be sent to the DeviceLock administrator via email or an external SNMP server. Audit records of the event and the shadow copy of the message or file may also be captured and stored in the central log database for forensic analysis. Incoming message content and files can also be selectively stored in the central log database, while generating security alerts and audit log records.

On the contextual level, DeviceLock enables Skype chats and file transfers to be selectively allowed or blocked. Voice and video calls between Skype users can also be allowed or blocked based on local sender and remote recipient IDs, while also optionally enforcing time-based permissions over their Skype communications.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their backend AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT - especially in the connected home and office. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Kocher, founder and managing director of Grey Heron, explained how Amazon is extending its reach to become a major force in IoT by building on its dominant cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strat...
Two weeks ago (November 3-5), I attended the Cloud Expo Silicon Valley as a speaker, where I presented on the security and privacy due diligence requirements for cloud solutions. Cloud security is a topical issue for every CIO, CISO, and technology buyer. Decision-makers are always looking for insights on how to mitigate the security risks of implementing and using cloud solutions. Based on the presentation topics covered at the conference, as well as the general discussions heard between sessi...
For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, William (Bill) Meehan, director of utility solutions for Esri, will take a closer look at the current state of spatial technology and ar...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.
