  1. Industry Accolades Security Product of the Year 2006

  2. What is Assureon?

  3. What is Assureon ? Complete Solution! • Compliance • CAS • ILM & retention policies • 3rd Party Witness • Time Stamping • Version Control • Single Instance Store • File Access Control • Encryption & compression • Electronic Discovery • Disposition control • Constant file Integrity check • Disaster Recovery • Replication • File Access History (log) • Best Business Practices • Admissibility of Evidence • Real Time Data movements The tools you need to Secure, Access Control, Manage and Organize your business assets

  4.

  7. Assureon Configurations?

  8. Assureon Configurations

  9. Compliance – who needs it?

  10. Compliance : Who needs it? Public Companies (SOX, Privacy Regs) Government (DOD, NARA) Pharmaceutical (FDA 21 CFR part 11) Legal (Best Practices and Evidentiary Weight) Medical (HIPAA) Auditors (SOX) Financial Services (SEC 17 a-4) Manufacturing (SOX) Insurance (HIPAA, State Regs)

  11. Assureon & CAS

  12. Assureon & CAS • Takes a file’s 0’s & 1’s & processes it to create a unique fingerprint Example…SHA-1 produces a 160 bit output… • SHA-1("The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog") == "2fd4e1c67a2d28fced849ee1bb76e7391b93eb12" • SHA-1("The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy cog") == "de9f2c7fd25e1b3afad3e85a0bd17d9b100db4b3" • BUT single Hash could potentially give same fingerprint for two different files • Assureon’s Failsafe CAS Technology uses Dual Cryptographic Algorithms SHA-1 & MDA-5 • This gives a totally unique digital “fingerprint” of file contents… SHA-1 & MDA-5 Totally Unique Fixed Content

  13. Single Instance Store

  14. Single Instance Storage using CAS

  15. Moving the Data

  16. How Does Assureon Work? Corporate Network • File System Watcher • Multiple O/S Support • Windows (2003, XP, 2K) • Linux (SuSe, Redhat, Fedora) • Data Moving Agent • No API (works at block level) • Server Managed • 3 rules for data retention in FSW folder • Move file & Leave original • Move file & Delete original • Move file & Leave a Short Cut • Offline Journaling • Customizable by file type • Filter Driver • Makes an OS think a short cut is a file • Allows files to be opened by the OS in the correct format • Allows seamless application integration • File System Sync • Allows Scheduled Movement of Data • File Transfer Status Report Linux SuSe Windows XP Linux Red Hat Windows 2003 Linux Fedora

  17. How Does Assureon Work? All files saved to C:/Watched by FSW/ are sent to Assureon FSW scans To Assureon Can be sent once released by application

  18. Securing your Assets with Assureon

  19. Securing your assets • Encryption – • AES 256 encryption at rest • IP-Sec for transit files • Https option for management • Access Control • Based on your current Active Directory • File level access control • Company owned file not user owned • Self healing • All assets serialized in chain • No file stored in plain format • Tamper proof storage • 3rd Party Witness

  20. Securing your assets • Files are safeguarded against: • Accidental Deletion • Deliberate Deletion (Even by Administrators!) • Viruses / Worms • Software Errors • Tampering • Inserting Bogus Files • Date / Time Falsification • Hardware Failure (disks, servers, etc) • Disaster (fire, flood, etc) • Information for LIFE

  21. How Does Assureon Work?

  22. How Does Assureon Work? Single Point of Management • The GUI… • Simple & intuitive • HTML based • Platform independent • The GUI… • simple & intuitive • HTML based • Platform independent

  42. Best Business Practices & Government Regulations

  43. Best Business Practices & Regulations • USA Government Compliance Regulations • HIPPA • US - SEC 17a-4 • Basel II • Data Protection Acts EU • CA SB 1386 • Sarbanes Oxley • PIPEDA • Euro Government Compliance Regulations • UK BSI BIP008 (British Legal Admissibility Std) • Basel2 (Euro banking Standard) • EU Data privacy act • GDPdU (Germany’s Data Access & Auditing of digital docs) • Best business Practices & Legal Considerations • Retain files • Authenticate files • Secure files • Access files • Delete files

  44. Best Business Practices & Regulations • Retention Policies - Assureon can assign and enforce retention policies • How long for a file to be saved • Flexiblity is also an option with Assureon • Hard set to 3 yrs (law min.) then flexible for 1yr after • File Authentication (Immutability) • Assureon’s CAS fingerprint can guarantee whether a file’s content has been tampered with • Stratum1 time server stamp (3rd Party Witness) • Audit trails of file changes, access & disposition • Any file changes are recorded (Versioning) - only the changes are saved! • Constant integrity checking between two stores (self healing) • Serialization cryptographic chain of all files, if chain broken = missing file • Electronic Discovery (Speed & Performance) • Rich Metadata Layer for Searching • Access the information in sub-second response versus traditional tape or optical • SATA Disk Arrays – external hardened RAID6 – MAJOR advantage over competitors

  45. Data Protection

  46. Data Protection Security Breaches: • Jan '06 - Providence Home Services (OR): Backup tapes and disks are stolen • Cost from $7 million to $9 million • Nov '05 – ChoicePoint breach affects 162,000 customers • The FTC imposes with highest-ever civil penalty: $15 million • June '05 – BJ'S Wholesale Club penalized by FTC for many reasons, including "failing to encrypt consumer information." • Fines plus audit requirements for 20 years Additional Security Breaches: April 18, 2005 DSW/ Retail Hacking 1,300,000 May 2, 2005 Time Warner Lost backup tapes 600,000 May 11, 2005 Stanford Univ. Hacker 9,900 June 6, 2005 CitiFinancial Lost backup tapes 3,900,000 June 25, 2005 Univ. of CT Hacker 72,000

  48. Data Protection • Access Control • Assureon is the policy enforcement point that controls access to information • Fully integrated your current Microsoft Active Directory infrastructure • Alternatively can work with Security Certificates on differing infrastructures • Encryption of Data at Rest • Assureon uses AES 256-bit Encryption • Selective Encrypting at the File Level • For offline media (tapes) just delete key forget the Crypto file on the tape (Crypto-Shredding) • Secure Key Management • Designed to meet the standards of the Enterprise but be cost-effective for the SME market • Provides redundancy in three locations worldwide • Absolute Disposition • Assureon scrubs all online files at the end of their retention period • Assureon virtually deletes all offline files (optical, tape, WORM media) by scrubbing the files encryption key • Disposition (on & off line) is performed at the file level

  49. Case Study

  50. Case Study Initial Project: Email Archiving Business Challenge • Data growth • Compliance & legal considerations • Replication for disaster recovery Decision Criteria • Scaleable: No limit on number of objects • Content authenticity for legal & regulations • Low maintenance & ease of implementation • Cost Assureon Value • No application impact • Reduced storage requirements by 40% • Replaced high maintenance & vulnerable tape • Meets SEC and Sarbanes-Oxley requirements Opposition • EMC • Offered Centera for FREE • Brought in big guns to do deal • THEY STILL PURCHASED Assureon!
