You’d think so given the name…
You might not have heard of them yet, but you will. Soon. They’ve got their eye on you.
Formed in the Czech Republic in 2007 by Jakub Mahdal, Safetica Technologies as it has been known since 2011 offer a data loss prevention (DLP) solution and we have to say, it’s excellent.
Put very simply (in their own words), ‘Safetica prevents data leaks so your customer data doesn’t land in someone else’s hands.’
Put slightly more techy, Safetica:
- Covers all data leak channels
- Identifies suspicious trends and activity
- Saves businesses the costs of repairing a data breach
- Reduces personnel costs
80% of businesses experience a security incident every year. The average cost to put it right
is around £3 million and two-thirds of SMEs go out of business within six months of a data breach.
Who Is Safetica?
As we said, the company formed in 2007 and in 2011, the first iteration of Safetica DLP was released. Very quickly, the company partnered with investor Ondřej Tomek who put in $1 million for R&D. In 2015 they raised $1.5 million for product development and took on CEO Petr Žikeš.
What’s of most interest to us at Koncise is that Safetica have partnered with award-winning endpoint security company ESET to bundle their tech with ESET’s antivirus products, immediately opening up a 180+ country market.
Like we said, you may not have heard of them yet, but you will do.
What Does It Actually Do?
We know we repeat the same messages all the time and forgive us for beating this particular drum again but if a message is worth hearing it’s worth repeating…
Your business critical data is your most important asset. You really don’t want it getting into the wrong hands because if it does, you’re screwed.
Prevents Data Loss
It safeguards key company data as well as providing BYOD security for employee-owned devices. No data in a company’s protected zone can sneak out on these devices. Employees are prevented from utilising key data to start their own businesses or give vital information to a competitor.
Safeguards Misdirected Files
It prevents misdirected files from getting into the wrong hands, either inside or outside an organisation and alerts management to potential dangers.
It identifies socially engineered attacks and blackmail attempts at the initial stages, preventing them from damaging your company.
Encrypts Data To Prevent Misuse
Important data is protected even if laptops & flash drives are lost or stolen. The whole disc or selected files remain encrypted and unreadable by the thief.
It controls printer use, applications and limits excessive online activity. It identifies changes in productivity (as it diminishes) to reveal potentially dangerous trends on a timely basis.
