Reconnex data-leak prevention now protects endpoints

New agent monitors all I/O activity

Reconnex on Monday announced a new component of its data-leak protection product that blocks sensitive information from leaving endpoints.

Reconnex 6.0 Endpoint Agent, slated for availability at the end of April, applies the company’s data-leak prevention analysis technology to all endpoints, preventing sensitive information from leaving the organization via any I/O activity, including copying to USB drives, sending out over Wi-Fi connections, or printing, says Faizel Lakhani, vice president of marketing with Reconnex.

The company quotes research by Enterprise Strategy Group that says 43% of intellectual property leakages happen when employees copy information from laptops to USB drives.

The new agent uses the same content-aware IP monitoring technology included in Reconnex’s existing data-leak protection components to implement compliance policies, document fingerprinting and keyword flagging. The new agent can be configured to block, alert or simply monitor unauthorized transfer of data, Lakhani says.

The new agent complements Reconnex’s existing technology that protects sensitive data at rest, meaning stored anywhere in an organization, as well as data in motion, or information being sent across the corporate network. Pricing for Reconnex 6.0, which is dependent on the number of users and which modules are chosen, starts at $25,000
