Data Protection Report Recognizes Content Protection Suite as "Champion"

Products evaluated based on stability and risk, performance, architecture, fit for purpose, ease of use, support and value.

The Workshare Unified Content Protection (UCP) suite was recognized as a "Champion" in Bloor Research's 2008 Enterprise Data Protection Bullseye report, an "independent, multi-dimensional model for comparative analysis of IT products" Workshare said in a press release.

Workshare's Unified Content Protection suite components work individually, or as a whole, to help organizations of all sizes conform to information security policies and assure compliance with government and industry regulation. The integrated data leak protection and data loss prevention features ensures compliance with both regulatory and internal policies, educates and alerts users of policy violations, blocks content where necessary, empowers users to correct the problem when appropriate, and ensures data is encrypted when e-mailed or stored locally on a laptop or USB drive. With Unified Content Protection in place organizations will dramatically reduce private, financial and confidential information leaks while educating and coaching users.

The companies Boor Research has chosen as "Champions" are large, stable organizations with a strong overall solution and vision. Workshare's data protection products were evaluated based on stability and risk, performance, architecture, fit for purpose, ease of use, support and coverage, and value. The data loss prevention features provide encryption to protect sensitive data at endpoints and across the enterprise network, for example, on laptops or in email. Leak protection detects if confidential data is at risk of leaving an organization's control, for example via e-mail or a USB drive. Workshare was singled out as a company that actively works with partners such as Utimaco, PGP and Voltage to provide a broader offering.
