Data being essential for business, it is handled by both internal employees and other external stakeholders for business operation. These data are both critical and non-critical in nature. This critical data, when fallen in the wrong hands, results in enterprise’s digital disaster, financial and other intangible loss. While cyber-attacks can happen unannounced and at any point in time, the source of these data threats could be both internal and external. This nature of cyberattacks calls for an enterprise’s security admins to have visibility and control on all possible threat entrance and not just the enterprise’s perimeter.

GajShield’s all-new data security firewall provides enhanced visibility over enterprise data transactions. Its data security threat plane feature, in particular, enables organizations to get a detailed, more profound understanding of the internal as well as external threats. With detailed reports, enterprises can keep their data safe, secure and restrict unauthorized data handling, significantly improve their data security measures over the traditional next-generation firewall. Here’s a look at GajShield’s data security threat plane feature in detail and how it helps.

Exploring GajShield’s data security threat plane

The data security threat plane helps enterprises easily identify and monitor threats by providing detailed information and allowing them to control these threats:

  • Email threats

Email being the primary mode of business communication stands as the easiest and the most vulnerable entrance to an enterprise’s data vault. The data security threat plane offers visibility into the firewall’s Email Communication and reports threats within and allows enterprises to completely control this threat vector. It shows real-time data threat information and deep dives into detailed information regarding the sender, receiver, IP address, email medium, and the attachments and textual information sent in the email in the reporting system. The system automatically blocks unauthorized communication, block threats entering the enterprise and notifies the administrators of the same.

  • Data leak threats

Data leak threats involve both internal and external elements. With context-based data protection, enterprises can significantly reduce intentional and unintentional internal data leaks and prevent external data attacks. The data threat plane shows detailed information about data transactions. It provides details transactional information across all platforms such as, emails, file uploads and downloads, SaaS and access to restricted websites that can cause a data leak. For instance, enterprises can block the use of certain files, such as the enterprise’s annual report, Drawing files, code files, etc. Suppose an employee is driving a data leak by uploading the associated file on an unauthorized platform. In that case, the communication is blocked. The information regarding the uploader, the IP address, location, login credentials, device, and upload time is shown in the data threat plane.

  • Remote/WFH users threats

With the recent COVID-19 Pandemic, most employees are working remotely. They are using individual network connections and handle business data for business operation continuity. These home networks may be highly unsecured and are susceptible to hacking. Employees might also take this WFH opportunity for accessing unauthorized sites or files as they might feel that they can’t be monitored outside the enterprise’s network allowing threats to enter the enterprise via this route. However, GajShield’s data security firewall is independent of the perimeter security and applies security to the data itself. With the security data threat plane, enterprises can monitor every activity of the employee and be inform of all the threats coming from this vector. They can see the applications used, files transferred, and other activities of these WFH employees. The Data Security Firewall also allows to implement enterprise’s data security initiatives on these remote users, mitigating the risk of data threats to enterprises by restricting unwanted access malicious applications and websites and monitoring their activities while protecting them from external threats.

  • Content security threats

The context-based engine can identify the content sent and received by the enterprise’s employees. It verifies the communication against the set parameters and blocks unauthorized communications. It then provides a detailed description of the threat on the data security threat plane. For instance, enterprises can set policies restricting certain words such as ‘sales report’, ‘customer data’ and other predefined key set. The firewall can analyze and detect the keyword in data transactions and block communication involving the keyword, file type, size and other details. It can then display detailed information such as the user, file, application, and the IP address of the user uploading the file on the data threat plane, allowing an enterprise to control these communications and prevent data exploitation

Business-critical data is generated from a variety of sources. And we are aware that it is essential to monitor every bit of data to ensure data security. Having detailed information about every threat to your organization can help significantly improve your cybersecurity measures. And, if an anomaly does occur, you can resolve the issue quickly with detailed information on them. GajShield’s Data Security Firewall with the data security threat plane feature helps control and monitor every activity related to the organization’s data and provide enterprises with security beyond just the perimeter and provides visibility on the entire data threat plane.
