Mindbridge Delivers Open Source Information Monitoring Service to Unisys


Unisys to use MindGuard(TM) to gain real-time corporate sensitive data visibility on workstations and servers

EAGLEVILLE, Pa., Sept. 12 / / -- Mindbridge Software (http://www.mindbridge.com/), an open source business innovator, announces that Unisys has purchased MindGuard for up to 2,000 workstations and servers. The software as a service (SaaS) solution allows trusted administrators to search and monitor servers, workstations and laptops for the existence and location of corporate sensitive data. With MindGuard, Unisys can perform real-time searches for social security numbers, customer account numbers, credit card numbers, project plans and forecast and other proprietary data.

MindGuard reports queried search results back to company executives so that they can review and remediate those results as necessary.

John D. Frymier, director of corporate information security at Unisys, highly values MindGuard's security monitoring capabilities. "MindGuard lets us be proactive in monitoring servers and workstations for interesting and/or prohibited data and take remediation steps as necessary. We also benefit from MindBridge's capabilities for upgrades, installs and other operations, reducing labor time and costs."

MindGuard's robust data search capabilities, developed using open source technology, helps companies and executives stay in front of the data monitoring curve, says Anthony Gold, vice president and general manager, open source business, Unisys.

"The Mindbridge solution helps alleviate what I call 'the CIO conundrum' - the ability to use cutting-edge technology such as open source software to achieve solutions quickly to create measurable business value and gain an edge in the marketplace," Gold adds.

Coming to an agreement with Unisys was a collaborative process says Rick Puckette, CEO, Mindbridge, "We began testing MindGuard at Unisys early on in our development cycle because we wanted to gain their perspectives on data, process and resourcing. With their input, we've been able to develop our service capabilities and features to more closely align with Unisys-specific usage requirements. We look forward to continued collaboration with Unisys in the development of MindGuard, and to a mutually prosperous working relationship moving forward."
