Credant Technologies and Safend have announced a partnership.


The agreement will see Safend's endpoint data leakage monitoring and protection technologies added to Credant's data protection portfolio. According to a 2008 Safend survey, 4 per cent of organisations have only moderate policies for endpoint and port security in place and nearly 25 per cent have no policies set at all.


Credant's Protector offers encryption and device control functionality for organisations as well as monitoring traffic in real-time and applying customised, highly-granular security policies over all physical, wireless and storage interfaces.


Chris Burchett, co-founder and chief technical officer at Credant Technologies, said: “In a climate where data can be downloaded to a USB stick or smartphone in a matter of seconds, it has become imperative that enterprises protect their endpoints against these vulnerabilities.


“The Safend Protector solution fits nicely into our portfolio, offering our customers the ability to secure their most sensitive information stored on CD-DVD drives and proactively manage port access.”


Gil Sever, founder and CEO at Safend, said: “This partnership offers exciting new opportunities for Safend and Credant to reach new customers as well as those in Credant's large client portfolio. We are confident that the power of the integrated Safend solution will further enable users to protect their sensitive data from loss, theft and malicious attacks.”
