Code Green Networks and Centennial Software Partner to Deliver First Content Aware Anti-Data-Leakage Agent to the SMB Market


SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 6 /-- Code Green Networks, a leading developer of solutions for protecting customer data and intellectual property, and Centennial Software, a leading provider of endpoint security and audit solutions, today announced an agreement to deliver the Code Green Networks Content Inspection (CI) Agent to the SMB market. This comprehensive, PC-based anti-data-leakage solution extends content-aware data protection to individual endpoint devices.

"With the prevalence today of personal data storage devices such as USB flash drives, CD-Rs, MP3 players, and PDA's, data leakage is an organization-wide issue, no longer limited to traditional network-based vulnerabilities," said Sreekanth Ravi, founder, chairman and CEO of Code Green Networks. "Through our collaboration with Centennial Software, we are providing an automated endpoint monitoring and security solution in an affordable and easy-to-use product that is ideally suited for use in small and mid-size organizations."

The CI Agent leverages the advanced endpoint device management capabilities of Centennial Software's award-winning DeviceWall technology. Combined with the content-aware anti-data-leakage technology offered by Code Green Networks, the product delivers the most complete anti-data-leakage solution available for the SMB market. This unified solution enables organizations to effectively monitor content and enforce policies to prevent the unauthorized disclosure of sensitive files via all leakage points, including widely-used TCP protocols -- SMTP, FTP, HTTP and Web mail, as well as local data transfer ports such as USB, FireWire, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, DVD/CD-ROMs, COM and portable media devices.

Through its combination of powerful security enforcement and flexible management capabilities, the CI Agent guarantees that an organization's sensitive data is protected, both on and off the network. Featuring an intuitive, single-screen Policy Control Center, the CI Agent prevents the unwanted transfer of content to and from portable devices by automatically enforcing security policies based on a user's legitimate need to access specific device types. It provides highly granular visibility of all user and administrator device and file usage forensics.

"In combining our DeviceWall technology with the Code Green Networks Content Inspection technology, we are bringing together two acknowledged leaders in content protection. Together, we'll deliver major benefits to organizations that recognize the importance of protecting intellectual property and sensitive data," said Andy Burton, CEO of Centennial Software. "We are very pleased to announce the combined product that, for the first time, delivers a content-aware data protection solution to small and mid-size organizations that works across all leakage points -- both on the network and on the desktop."

The Code Green Networks Content Inspection Agent provides an effective technology to defend against the misuse of portable storage devices by automatically enforcing access policies, and blocking unwanted connections. It automatically records each attempted connection and audits the transfer of files to and from authorized devices. The CI Agent also automatically encrypts data copied to portable devices using the latest Blowfish and AES 256-bit ciphers. This ensures that content remains safe and that network integrity is maintained, even if those portable storage devices are lost.

The CI Agent will be generally available in March 2007. For more information about the product, please visit www.codegreennetworks.com/.
