Nexor Announces Security Label Guarding on Microsoft’s Intelligent Application Gateway 2007
September 30, 2008, Press Dispensary. Microsoft certified partner, Nexor, a provider of security capability to meet the information assurance needs of the military and government sectors, announces its latest guarding technology exploiting Microsoft Intelligent Application Gateway (IAG) 2007.
In the light of increased concern over data leakage, Nexor is keen to contribute its extensive experience to solving the issue. By combining its Microsoft expertise with its in-depth understanding of guarding technology, Nexor has constructed a standards-based, security policy module incorporated into the IAG 2007 APIs to provide policy enforcement.
The IAG provides a general framework to allow authenticated remote clients to securely access data behind a corporate firewall. The addition of the Nexor IAG Security Policy Module ensures that the data being accessed is authorised for release via the remote channel. For example, a company confidential document or email may be prevented from being accessed remotely over the internet, whereas documents or emails identified as unclassified can be read via the internet.
Colin Robbins, Nexor’s CTO, comments: “This is a really positive development for Nexor, expanding our proven market position in messaging guards into the more challenging data guard arena. With Nexor’s modular architecture to security policy, we have rapidly integrated our security labelling and access control enforcement expertise to the IAG platform to solve a key piece of the jigsaw of a pan-government problem.”
IAG 2007, part of the Microsoft Forefront™ line of business security products, provides Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) virtual private network functionality, a web application firewall and endpoint security management capabilities.
