SafeNet Announces Launch of New eSafe® SmartSuite™ Web and Mail Security Gateway

SafeNet, Inc., a global leader in information security now affiliated under common management with Aladdin Knowledge Systems, today announced the general availability of its new eSafe SmartSuite Secure Gateway for Web and mail protection and control. An entirely new gateway platform, eSafe SmartSuite offers Security that Thinks — the strong combination of intelligent protection, ease of use, and value-focused management and reporting that provides the insights today’s businesses require.

Building on the foundation of eSafe’s real-time, intelligent technology platform, designed to protect organizations from current and future threats, eSafe SmartSuite offers real-time, intelligent inspection of all inbound and outbound Web and mail traffic while delivering unmatched performance and scalability. Additionally, eSafe SmartSuite now improves productivity and management visibility, and enhances security decision-making capabilities through simple, intelligent, and value-driven monitoring, trend analysis, and reporting functionality.

A component of SafeNet’s vision for comprehensive enterprise data protection, eSafe SmartSuite delivers the first fully integrated content security and data leakage prevention solution with data aware monitoring, enabling assessment and mitigation of threats originating from data leakage. eSafe will allows organizations to detect, analyze, and prevent mishandling of information, and will be fully aware of existing risks so that they can take preventive measures to protect sensitive data.

"In the most recent reports covering Endpoint Security and Anti-Malware, Frost & Sullivan stated that it 'believes that as the secure web gateway market grows, Aladdin's focus on research and development will help them remain a strong participant in the market' and that with its renewed focus eSafe 'has got the right building blocks in place.’ The launch of eSafe SmartSuite represents the effective leveraging of these building blocks. Through its intelligent protection and value-focused analysis and reporting, eSafe SmartSuite clearly illustrates the Company's ability to meet the needs of today's business environment," said Martha Vazquez, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "Now that Aladdin and SafeNet are affiliated, the added technologies that can be integrated into eSafe SmartSuite are intriguing."

In addition to enhanced management and reporting capabilities, eSafe SmartSuite’s key features deliver valuable benefits to its customers:

  • Data Leakage Prevention (DLP) – eSafe SmartSuite now includes pragmatic data aware monitoring, enabling the detection and control of risks surrounding sensitive data in motion.
  • Enhanced Anti-Malware Protection– eSafe SmartSuite integrates dual complementary antivirus and anti-malware engines, enabling broad, best-of-breed malware protection covering every channel of incoming content.
  • Web 2.0 Applications Control – eSafe SmartSuite delivers comprehensive protection against Web 2.0 threats, while also controlling and enforcing acceptable use policies for Web 2.0 applications.
  • Insight and Analysis Tools- eSafe SmartSuite delivers “out-of-the-box” trend analysis and reporting tools that provide insight into business data, including outstanding threats and events, user activity and productivity, network and file activities, and much more.

Organizations can rely on eSafe SmartSuite to enforce acceptable use policies, protect information assets, and maintain productivity, while also providing unmatched visibility and control. Through user behavior monitoring and deep, yet easy to understand, analysis of risks and trends, eSafe SmartSuite gives security and compliance officers, CIOs, and IT staff valuable data and insight, enabling their security programs to truly align with business goals.

Bezeq, the largest telecommunications service provider in Israel, recently deployed eSafe, reporting that their business sees significant value in eSafe’s combination of powerful security and monitoring/trends that is easily used to maximize efficiency and enforce acceptable use policies.

“From past experience, businesses like ours often need to make a tough choice between protection, security, and ease of use,” said Eyal Zafrir, vice president information technology at Bezeq. “With eSafe, we are able to achieve complete protection of Web applications in a solution that is easy to use, and provides us with the reporting and analysis we need to make solid business decisions. The implementation has enabled Bezeq to become a more secure and productive organization.”

From its quick setup to a new fluid, task-oriented security management center, eSafe SmartSuite employs advanced capabilities, such as a dual security engine and data leak prevention, to help businesses support PCI, HIPAA, and SOX compliance, while allowing the customer to focus on their core business.

“As part of the new SafeNet family, eSafe SmartSuite represents the future of content security, protecting against threats while delivering the ease of use, visibility, and management insight today’s businesses need,” said Rami Shalom, managing director of the Content Security business unit at SafeNet. “In today’s market and in this challenging global economy, SafeNet understands that businesses need to do more with less, while still maintaining the integrity of their security programs. We are committed to helping organizations achieve their goals by delivering innovative solutions that enable them to effectively protect their data, support their programs, and demonstrate the value of security to the overall objectives of the business.”
