Possibility of control of date leaks via Skype

On October 9, 2018 SmartLine Inc announced a release of the next version of DeviceLock DLP returning to the companies a possibility of control date leaks through popular messenger Skype.

The updating of Skype which came out at the end of August, 2018 including an option of creation of the "private conversations" protected by enciphering, more than for a month output this messenger from under control of the majority of DLP systems. Application of the Signal protocol drafted by Open Whisper Systems non-profit organization made impossible all standard methods of interception of messages, including the substitution of certificates known as man-in-the-middle attack.


DeviceLock solved this problem, using a combination of network control and the local agents controlling processes and the file system of client devices. At the same time in DeviceLock DLP not only recording, but also the full control of "private conversations" including check of a chat and the transferred files on the prohibited contents before their sending and immediate blocking of transfer of confidential information in case of its detection is implemented.

«
Aiming to provide privacy of private users, producers of messengers create gaps in corporate systems of protection. For the company, the protected messenger which suddenly received in each workplace, is only two exits: it is simple to prohibit its use or to apply a DLP system. The last option is optimal not only by opportunities, but also from the legal and ethical parties and also does not destroy the processes which developed in the company.

As a result of integration the DeviceLock DLP DLP complex works for an event management system of information security of RuSIEM as a source of events of information security[1].

DeviceLock DLP sends to SIEM systems operational information in real time under the SNMP and SYSLOG protocols, can duplicate records of magazines of event recording. Disturbing notifications can be created and be sent to SIEM systems as a result of the permitted and prohibited attempts of data transmission on different channels of network communications, data recording to removable drives, printing of documents to local and network printers, data transmission in terminal sessions through a clipboard, etc.

The DeviceLock DLP settings help to configure the mode of disturbing notifications for transfer of operational information in SIEM in real time at identification by means of the content analysis in the transferred files and documents, chats and e-mail of information of limited access. Besides, SIEM systems can obtain information on events directly from the DeviceLock DLP magazines.

For integration of DeviceLock DLP and RuSIEM the method of transfer of events from agents of DeviceLock DLP is selected from RuSIEM through the SYSLOG protocol.

In addition to information from a DLP system, in RuSIEM data from an intrusion detection system (IDS), routers, firewalls, servers and the automated jobs of users are analyzed and displayed.

«
Recently we note keen interest of customers and system integrators in integration of DeviceLock DLP into solutions of the class SIEM. As a result of integration of our DLP solution with RuSIEM mature technologies of the analysis in a uniform panel of a SIEM event system will become available to customers to a comprehensive range of the data transmission channels controlled by DeviceLock DLP.
