Verdasys has launched two new managed service offerings for information protection.

According to the company, this launch is of the first enterprise data loss prevention (DLP) solutions to be offered as managed services. It said Verdasys Managed Service for Information Protection (MSIP) and Verdasys Information Protection as a Service (IPaaS) will provide businesses with on-demand data protection technology hosted within its secure facilities.

It claimed that MSIP offers a fully managed enterprise information protection solution, while IPaaS allows end-users to deploy and manage their own enterprise data policies with no additional setup or infrastructure costs.

The technology behind both MSIP and IPaaS is Digital Guardian, Verdasys's platform solution. Offering layered, contextual risk insight and data-centric policy enforcement, Digital Guardian provides complete protection of intellectual property, trade secrets and privacy data in highly collaborative and regulated industries, the company said.

According to Verdasys, both hosted solutions continuously monitor data, application and system access and usage whether end-users are online, offline or in virtual environments, and applies their company's specific risk-based policy controls to adhere to data governance and compliance rules without impeding normal business operations.

Jim Ricotta, CEO of Verdasys, said: “The idea of offering enterprise DLP as a managed service originated with one of our large customers. Since its implementation over four years ago, the program has become so successful that other customers asked us to make it available to them.

“We see a tremendous potential for the managed services model to help our clients implement advanced information protection that can cost-effectively manage the biggest risks to their critical data.”
