New programs requiring the use of unconventional protocols are becoming increasingly more prevalent. Despite company policies forbidding the practice, employees frequently utilize peer to peer applications. Microsoft Networks and similar protocols, initially designed for LAN, are perfectly capable of working over the Internet.
Malicious applications (e.g., viruses and worms) can be utilized to transfer data across a broad variety of protocols. So supporting just SMTP, HTTP, FTP and IM is a real limitation for the majority of DLP Solutions!
The GTB Software Development Kit (SDK), based on patent-pending proprietary technology, allows Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) and OEMs to integrate the market leading real time content inspection engines, powering the GTB Inspector and the GTB Endpoint Protector, into their products.
Utilizing "on the fly" real-time content inspection, the GTB engines identify data of interest with 100% accuracy, without network or host degradation. The GTB SDK boasts a screaming fast fingerprinting engine for file and database data, having virtually zero false positives. In addition, a pattern engine with pre-built compliance dictionaries, lexical analysis and extended regular expressions is also available for accurate detection. Your system submits files for inspection and the engine responds with any data violation it finds. You may than enforce your own policy in real-time.
OEMs can use GTB SDK to instantly add to their products the following functionalities:
