17 July 2013

Belarusbank which is the largest bank in Belarus introduced the information security solution SecureTower developed by Falcongaze Company into the corporate network. The deployment of the system was preceded by the rigorous testing of the product and its comparison with DLP solutions from other vendors. Based on the results of the tests the security department of Belarusbank chose the SecureTower system.

The banking sector has always been the most vulnerable to the threats of data leakage. The feature of any bank is that it processes large amounts of information which in fact is one of the most powerful assets of any credit and financial institution. According to statistics, one in seven data leakage occurs in the banking sector. Therefore, ensuring an adequate level of data protection is a necessary measure for institutions operating in that area.

As one of the major participants in economic processes in the Republic of Belarus, JSC Belarusbank shows a responsible attitude to the information assets protection. In addition to compliance with regulatory requirements, the bank developed an internal information security policy.

When choosing DLP solution one of the key demands of Belarusbank was the presence of extensive functional to monitor mail servers. In any organization e-mail is one of the main channels of business communication: every day employees of companies from different areas send and receive dozens of e-mails. Given the intensity of the use of the channel the probability of information leakage via e-mail grows significantly.

"The experts of the Security Department of Belarusbank approached the choice of data protection system very seriously. The choice of DLP system for the enterprise of that level is not only a tribute to the existing requirements but also the acquisition of a tool that will be used consistently. After the thorough testing of our product the experts expressed a preference to the SecureTower system which appeared to be a reliable product that fully meets the specs," said Ivan Karanevich, a leading specialist of the exclusive distributor of the Falcongaze Company products in the Republic of Belarus DPA Company.

"The introduction of our solution into the local network of the largest bank in Belarus confirms the appropriateness of the chosen strategy of SecureTower development which is focused primarily on the quality and comprehensive approach to the implementation of the functional. The implementation of SecureTower to control 1500 workstations at the head office of the bank was done successfully in the allotted time. We look forward to further fruitful cooperation with Belarusbank which has the largest branch network in Belarus," said Alexander Akimov, CEO of Falcongaze Company.
