Tel Aviv & Sunnyvale, California, 28 May 2014 – Whitebox Security’s patent-pending crowd-sourcing technology allows IT and the compliance department to share secure data governance, compliance, and cybersecurity responsibilities with key personnel across the organization.
“Data is out of control,” says Maor Goldberg, CEO of Whitebox Security. “Most organizations are dealing with petabytes of information; they don’t know who can access it, who is accessing it, and whether those accessing it should be allowed to. Meanwhile, IT is under ever-increasing pressure to deliver secure data governance, often with minimal resources. WhiteOPSTM crowd-sourcing capabilities alleviate this problem.”
Whitebox Security’s patent-pending targeted crowd-sourcing technology leverages the collective intelligence across the company to protect and manage the organization’s unstructured data by asking individuals to provide input using employee and management training-free, “non-technical” interfaces.
Verizon’s recent threat report stressed the critical importance of educating employees about the urgent need for data security. By making everyone part of the security process, WhiteOPSTM crowd sourcing reinforces employees’ collective responsibility for security, further reducing training requirements. It’s also gamified to promote employee buy in.
The WhiteOPSTM solution determines who can and has accessed structured, semistructured, and unstructured data to ensure that unauthorized data breaches can easily be prevented and detected, protecting against internal and external threats and reducing corporate and management’s individual liability.
“WhiteOPSTM generates real-time alerts if unauthorized parties are accessing your data,” continued Goldberg. “It also provides 3600 forensics, so there are no ugly surprises when you’re audited, meaning you don’t have to worry about fines or lost reputation.”
