Safetica Data Loss Prevention: What MSSPs Need to Know

Safetica, a data loss prevention (DLP) software provider, now enables MSPs and MSSPs to offer a data security solution that drives recurring revenue, according to the company.

The Safetica DLP solution is designed to reduce the risk of data leakage – something that may cause an organization to suffer revenue losses and brand reputation damage.

As such, the solution helps address data security threats both inside and outside an organization, a Safetica spokesperson told MSSP Alert.

How Does the Safetica DLP Solution Work?

The Safetica DLP solution is a "set it and forget it" offering that helps organizations detect data security threats, establish policy rules and minimize data leakage, a company spokesperson said.

With the Safetica DLP solution, organizations can record user activity and enforce policy rules via a client application, according to Safetica. The solution automatically transfers data from network computers to a server upon connecting to a network, and organizations can evaluate all collected data and adjust settings and outputs via a management dashboard.

Ultimately, the Safetica DLP solution promotes data security and drives accountability within organizations, the company spokesperson noted. It allows organizations to track and analyze data movement to reduce data leakage and increase employee productivity, the spokesperson said.

Safetica helps organizations protect data across desktop and mobile clients, application servers and web-based consoles, the company stated. It has already created more than 1 million lines of code and 1 billion database entries and helped several MSPs extend their reach into vertical markets.

Capaxion, a managed IT services and cloud solutions provider, recently leveraged the Safetica DLP solution to help a pharmaceutical company manage data leakage, capture threat vectors and monitor Skype usage. The solution prevented data leakage and provided analytics in terms of data usage, Capaxion President Jay Bedovoy told MSSP Alert.

Technology support services provider NocDoc started offering the Safetica DLP solution nine months ago, according to CEO Staale Swift. The solution allows NocDoc to monitor the movement of client data and provide accountability, Swift said.

What Does the Future Hold for Safetica?

Safetica boasts more than 100 years of managed services expertise and is looking to "jump in the channel with both feet," a company spokesperson said.

The business as of mid-August had 10 partners in North America, the spokesperson indicated, and looks poised to capitalize on increasing demand for DLP solutions across financial services, healthcare and other vertical markets.

The global DLP market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22 percent between 2014 and 2019, according to research and advisory company 451 Research. In addition, 451 Research has predicted this market will continue to "gain momentum" in the years to come.

"DLP is back in vogue again. While compliance with data privacy regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA and SOX continue to drive DLP purchases, protection of sensitive financial data and valuable intellectual property has gained momentum in the wake of recent high-profile data breaches," 451 Research said in a prepared statement.
