ZECURION GRANTED PATENT FOR PREVENTIVE SHADOW COPY AND CONTENT ANALYSIS METHOD BY USPTO

New York City, New York, October 7, 2015Zecurion, a leading developer of data loss prevention solutions, announced that it has been granted the patent for its unique preventive shadow copy and content analysis method by the US Patent and Trademark Office.

Removable media devices enable users to extract significant amounts of sensitive data from a data source. Moving data using thumb drives or other removable media devices has become a common practice, even among information technology and security specialists. Such data transfers go largely undetected. Once sensitive data has moved to a removable storage device it is easily removed from the enterprise and compromised. Thus companies, governments and other organizations risk losing the data or exposing it to unauthorized recipients. Further risks include violations of laws and regulations requiring audit trails or encryption when moving sensitive data.

Towards this, while encryption provides a viable solution, it has many drawbacks too. Encrypting large amounts of data can be time consuming and encryption policies are difficult to enforce. Without user diligence and willingness to comply with encryption requirements, encryption is a relatively weak security mechanism for removable media.

Zecurion’s preventive shadow copy and content analysis method solves the problem by providing a system that would automatically enforce a removable media security policy without relying on the user to take action such as encrypting data to be transferred. The method guarantees that a file will be written to the removable media only after it has been checked by control software to assure its compliance with security policies.

Alexey Raevsky, Zecurion’s CEO, said “We are very excited to be granted the patent for our unique preventive shadow copy and content analysis method. Our invention addresses the challenge that corporates face in enforcing removable media security policy. In addition, the method is completely transparent to users, enabling information security managers to achieve better success with implementation policies, while also freeing up resources to focus on other threats corporates may be facing.”
