Tablus Updates Enterprise Content Security Solution

Tablus, Inc. announced the latest version of their content security solution, Content Alarm 1.1. Content Alarm monitors all outgoing traffic at the network perimeter and accurately identifies sensitive content leaving the network in email or email attachments, HTTP posts, FTP transmissions and other traffic protocols. Content Alarm employs an advanced Linguistic Analysis Engine to determine if data leaving the network matches any content that has been designated as protected. Because Content Alarm monitors content transmission instead of document access, it can detect a wide range of violations, e.g., if paragraphs of a strategic plan are pasted into an outgoing email message. Content Alarm looks at all traffic exiting on multiple protocols, not just email. Completely non-intrusive and transparent to end-users, Content Alarm tracks email attachments, FTP file transfers, HTTP posts and more. Sophisticated policy tools support audits of all or only selected activities. For example, certain transactions, such as data transmissions to a specific destination can trigger an audit. Content Alarm 1.1 is currently available. www.tablus.com
