Cloud Security Service

Cloud Security

Organizations these days have a number of different distributions which are stationary as well as mobile. These organizations need to cater to the security of both the types of users. Most organizations have multiple Internet gateways and each gateway is a potential entry point for an attacker and thus, it is imperative that the security solution for an organization requires multiple point products to secure it. GajShield’s integrated and comprehensive functionality provides security and control to any user, any device, at any location thus eliminating the need for multiple point products.  As a result, the traffic from each firewall or device is simply redirected to the GajShield cloud.

An organization may have roaming users with their own devices- mobile phones or laptops along with data cards provided to them for professional usage. It is important to keep a track on this usage, to monitor that the data card isn’t utilized for personal purposes, to set policies pertaining to their use and more. In addition to this, antivirus to block malicious sites, malware, viruses and more should also be incorporated to keep a track on the mobile users.

GajShield provides an integrated, best-of-breed and comprehensive cloud functionality which allows the organizations to create common, granular policies for various areas. It has an intuitive user interface so that use of the service literally requires no training. There are three key areas of functionality, namely- secure, manage, and comply. GajShield inspects all the inbound-outbound web traffic to protect enterprises from these threats. Various features have been incorporated like roaming users comply with company policies even when they are not in network which helps us keep track of them regardless of them being in the office or mobile.

Cloud client enforces and routes all traffic securely through the cloud firewall (public or private) As a result of which, regardless of wherever the user is, all the traffic passes through the firewall which helps us to monitor all the communication or interaction whatsoever.

Besides this, Web traffic is increasingly being encrypted using the SSL protocol. If an organization selects SSL decryption policy, GajShield allows that organization to decrypt SSL traffic to detect and block hidden malicious content or outgoing sensitive information. GajShield inspects and protects the organization against known viruses and worms using signature and heuristic technologies. GajShield’s architecture provides inspection at many levels and at regular times with the speed of most competitive products, ensuring full protection without introducing latency. In addition to this, a range of spyware, including malicious Trojans, system monitors, key-loggers, and adware, which are pervasive threats and significant security risks, are effectively detected and stopped by GajShield’s antispyware. Security is ensured to the roaming users even when they are a part of an insecure network like public WiFi, etc.

Besides this, GajShield allows that organization to decrypt SSL traffic to detect and block hidden malicious content or outgoing sensitive information.

As the traditional perimeter is vanishing with enterprises connecting to their customers and partners, data leakage is becoming an expensive, burdensome problem. Employees, whether their intent is innocent or malicious, can easily send a Webmail or IM with confidential information. Information can be posted on social networks and blogs instantaneously. Private information, such as consumer’s Social Security and Credit Card numbers are protected by Government regulations and leakage creates legal liabilities and harms brand reputation. Furthermore, leaks of sensitive company information may lead into financial losses.

Several companies have emerged to offer specialized solutions to prevent data leakage. These solutions often require extensive implementation and consulting services. They are also just another point solution to be added to an already-crowded perimeter gateway. Not surprisingly, less than 5% enterprises have deployed data loss prevention (DLP) solutions today. GajShield’s DLP solution provides an in-depth visibility to the data which is sent out of your corporate asset. As a result, a number of benefits are observed like- No end point security product required, due to which significant improvement in the performance is observed, Mobile users comply to company policies even when they are not in the network which helps the organizations to secure their network regardless of the devices being used, Central policies with ease of management for mobile users and a high end infrastructure protecting cloud users.
