A Way to Prevent Insider Threats

With the growing number of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies being implemented at work, companies are now more concerned about their data security than ever before. As much as a company can trust their employees and coworkers (and we realize that Non-Disclosure Agreements exist for a reason), no company should ever go without data leakage prevention measures. Have you ever worried about accidental or worse, malicious internal data leakages? Once it spreads, it is an arduous task to find the source of the leakage and can lead to inefficiently containing it. This can ruin a company’s reputation for a long time.

Especially those companies that share their important confidential data via file servers throughout the company. Yes, there are benefits to using file servers such as efficient data sharing, collaboration, and the works. However, file servers today come with little too inefficient monitoring capabilities, security, and protection. There are solutions to these current issues that have been brought up in multiple IT discussions such as file encryption, physical isolation of the file server, and antivirus vaccination software.

But these solutions can only curb the dangers from accidental data leakage. How can a company know when a malicious data threat is on the way before it happens? The key is to be prepared and prevent potential data threats. A new copy protection software for file server has been released into the market by Brainzsquare called SECUDRIVE File Server.

Copy Protection to prevent files from being copied and leaked
By applying copy protection to the file server connected to the network drive, administrators can prevent registered users from copying the file to the local disk drive, or other outside sources. Prevention of screen capturing and printing is also included. So even if there was a malicious attempt or accidental cause to copy the data out of the file server and distribute it without authorization, you’d be covered.

A simple User Interface that detects and keeps current file server settings
Don’t fear, file server administrators! By installing SECUDRIVE File Server onto the file server, fill out the file server information and it will automatically detect your current file server settings (users, shared folders, etc.) and keep them when setting up. Registering new users, or new shared folders and setting sharing policies and copy protection policies for each user is simple with SECUDRIVE File Server.

Brainzsquare offers 30-day trial versions of SECUDRIVE File Server on their website.

Secudrive File Server Released

Brainzsquare releases a new file server security solution with copy protection technology, Secudrive File server. SECUDRIVE File Server makes it possible to prevent files from leaving the file server due to unauthorized copying, as well as audit how the files are handled by utilizing a detailed event log. The software runs after installation and opens in the existing windows file server while keeping the current file server settings.

San Jose, CA- June 12th, 2013– Brainzsquare releases a new file server security solution with copy protection technology, Secudrive File Server (SDFS). SDFS makes it possible to prevent files from leaving the file server due to unauthorized copying and audit how the files are handled by utilizing a detailed event log, while keeping the easiness of file sharing among users. The software runs after installation and opens in the existing windows file server while keeping the current file server settings. SDFS supports Windows local and AD accounts.

A specific user who installs the client program of SDFS can get access to a shared folder on the file server only if the administrator allows the user to handle files in the folder. Copy protection functions of SDFS includes disabling of the copy to local disk function and printing (or allowing printing with a watermark), screen capture prevention, disabling network transfer via email and messenger programs, and disabling copy to CD and USB flash drives. If an administrator allows a certain user to copy a file stored on the file server, a copy of the copied file can be securely backed up onto the file server to use for auditing purposes using the backup file function of the SDFS.

The file log records usage, date, time, file server, and the users that accessed the files, for easy file management by administrators. SDFS gathers only useful file logs relating to the users’ actions by eliminating logs that do not relate to the user. For example, the file log does not record temporary files that are created when an application program reads a file, therefore administrators can audit and track the route of leakage quickly and efficiently.

“Many organizations are storing their important and confidential files in file servers to share the files with internal and external coworkers. But the level of security for file servers is generally pretty weak. SDFS has strong security functions that is easily installable and can be used with ease. I expect SDFS to become one of the most popular file server security solutions to contribute to secure file sharing and cooperation of TFT teams and SMBs,” says Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare.
