SecureTower DLP system v6.6: basic information about the new version


Falcongaze LLC, a company specializing in information security, has announced the release of an update for the SecureTower v6.6 DLP system.

The main tasks of the system are to protect against data leaks from the company and control the work of personnel, therefore, the emphasis in the update was placed on adding controlled data transmission channels, expanding the list of supported operating systems, as well as speeding up work with intercepted data.

Learn more about the updated SecureTower v6.6:

This version adds control of Linux operating systems (Ubuntu 20.04, Debian 11, Fedora 33, Rosa R12 and Astra 1.7 and higher distributions are supported). Thanks to this, it will be possible to control the work and the information sent by an entire segment of IT specialists: system administrators, programmers, developers and engineers. This will allow the company to better understand what its specialists are doing during the day and protect themselves from leaks of technical developments and other important data.

The protocol of network interaction between controlled computers and the SecureTower server has been updated. The new protocol provides end-to-end encryption and compression of traffic. This will speed up the sending of data from controlled computers to the server and provide them with a high level of protection. In addition, the agent Network connection maintenance module was separated from the EPA (Endpoint agent control Server) and replaced with a separate Agent Proxy Server service. Now the agents send the data to the proxy server, and it sends the data to the CA. To balance the load on the network, an organization can install several proxy servers so that the agent sends data to different proxy servers in turn.

The built-in databases of categorizers of websites and applications have been updated. With their help, you can receive detailed reports, as well as restrict access to entertainment and news resources from work computers and prohibit employees from running programs and applications that should not be used in work activities.

Also, based on the categorizer, the general conditions of the combined search were expanded by category search and a similar condition was added to the security policies.

A new type of report has been added, the “User Activity Report”, which combines information from reports on browser activity and user application activity and takes into account the specified categories of applications and web resources.

Also, with the help of a trained neural network, the Falcongaze SecureTower DLP system classifies images. Now only those images that potentially contain text information are transmitted for analysis, which significantly reduces the load on the server. In addition, the “Tesseract” module has appeared – which allows you to more efficiently and quickly recognize intercepted images for the presence of confidential data in them, bank card numbers, documents, seals, and so on.

Support for commenting on security incidents has now become available, in addition to the ability to assign color markers and statuses for incidents of varying degrees of importance. This makes it easier to determine the types and importance of incidents when analyzing security policy violations.

Processing of intercepted data has been accelerated, now reports are built several times faster.

For full control of all channels of information transmission, work is constantly underway on updating messengers and social networks.networks. The following were updated: control of the web version of Telegram, correspondence and file transfer to Zoom, Zimbra web mail, Rocket.Chat, added voice communication control in WhatsApp messenger. Optimized processing of messages sent from the MS Outlook task scheduler.

The ability to specify a time zone other than the time zone of the system (computer) has also been added. This option can be useful for companies with branches in different time zones for more comfortable work with data.
