Aktau International Sea Trade Port protects information with Falcongaze SecureTower

30 April 2015

Falcongaze Company reports on the implementation of the SecureTower software, designed for information security and data leak protection, into the corporate network of Aktau International Sea Trade Port.

The Sea Port of Aktau is located on the east coast of the Caspian Sea. Due to its favorable geographical position Kazakhstan, as in the days of the Great Silk Road, continues to serve international transport corridors from North to South and from West to East, thus connecting promising regions for the development of trade relations. Aktau port is a modern multipurpose terminal which is under the control of the national company Kazakhstan Temir Zholy and is an important link of multimodal logistics chain.

Aktau port operates in accordance with international standards, not only in terms of maritime safety, but also information security. The protection of data related to the provision of logistics services to the companies engaged in transportation of goods through the port, as well as the safety of information related to the construction of strategic facilities in Aktau International Sea Trade Port, is one of the most important tasks of the information security department in Port of Aktau.

In addition to the requirements of the international law of the sea an integrated management system is applied in the port, uniting the three systems: a quality management system, environmental management system and management system for occupational health and safety.

"Development is one of the keywords, by which the activity of Aktau International Sea Trade Port can be characterized. Due to the fact that the company is constantly implementing projects of varying complexity, cooperating with our regular customers and increasing the number of contracts, we needed a truly effective tool that can provide complete safety of information about cargo carriers and freight, the data contained in the accounts, shipping and freight documents as well as any other information intended for internal use only. Thus the solution that we were looking for became the SecureTower DLP system from Falcongaze Company. With built-in SecureTower and easily customizable information security rules that allow to analyze the circulation of corporate documents and dissemination of data in the company network, we have an opportunity to monitor all channels of communication, ranging from instant messengers to e-mail, and detect violations of security policy. We care about our reputation and keep confidential customer data well protected," said the representative of Aktau International Sea Trade Port.

"Our company has such extensive experience working with organizations in one way or another connected with sea theme that it’s time we allocated a separate segment in our target market. We are happy to direct the accumulated experience in this field to cooperation with Aktau International Sea Trade Port, which will allow to protect the port against leaks of critical information and, hopefully, will be long and fruitful," said Yuriy Guziy, the head of sales department in Falcongaze Company.
