2 April 2014

Falcongaze Company is delighted to announce the completion of the project to introduce the SecureTower DLP system into the corporate network of Tatsotsbank which is among the TOP 10 in the Republic of Tatarstan (Russian Federation). The project was implemented in collaboration with Info-Obereg Company which is a premium business partner of Falcongaze Company.

The choice of a product to protect sensitive data of the bank was based on the tender which was attended by leading developers of data protection systems in Russia. In addition to the evaluation of commercial offers considered under the tender software was rigorously tested directly in the network of the company. When conducting tests general fault tolerance of the product and the richness of its functionality were evaluated. Particular attention was paid to the usability and the consistency of interface of data protection products. Another requirement of the customer to an information security system was that it has a valid FSTEC certificate. Following the pilot testing and the evaluation of other parameters, the security department of CJSC Tatsotsbank opted for the SecureTower DLP system which is the product of Falcongaze Company.

According to Rustam Khousainov who is the head of information security department in Tatsotsbank the SecureTower system not only suited to the objectives related to confidential information protection, but thanks to the tools of the User Activity and Reports Center modules allowed to establish a transparent system for bank employee monitoring.

"Requirements for sensitive data protection in the banking sector are among the most stringent in the world. At the same time our bank is well aware that a data leak can lead to not only economic losses but also is associated with considerable reputational risks. Therefore, when choosing information security system, we paid particular attention to functional features of a solution and our attention was also drawn to the reputation of developers and integrators in the information security market. Falcongaze Company and their partners in Kazan, LLC Info-Obereg, proved to be reliable performers, ready to respond quickly to customer needs, which is confirmed by feedback of other clients of Falcongaze Company," Rustam Khousainov commented on the implementation of the system.

"The information security issue is becoming more common in our region, and we, being integrators, naturally offer our customers the highest quality and advanced products. Given the fact that the market is in a stage of active development we have a unique opportunity to influence it working directly with customers as well as initiating activities aimed at popularizing the information security sphere. The project implemented into the most dynamically developing bank of the Republic of Tatarstan is undoubtedly an indicator of right promotion strategy for products of Falcongaze Company and potentially will give the desired push to attract new customers," said Vladimir Dorofeev, project manager in Info-Obereg Company.
