Axiomatics offers fine-grained policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering

CHICAGO, Oct-05-2017 — /EuropaWire/ — Axiomatics, the leader in fine-grained dynamic authorization, today announced that KuppingerCole has profiled its data-centric dynamic authorization suite in a recent analyst report titled, “Executive View – Axiomatics Data Security.” The report sheds light on two flagship products; Axiomatics Data Access Filter for Multiple Databases and Axiomatics SmartGuard™ for Big Data, both of which apply an Attribute Based Access Control mechanism across different types of data stores, and centralizes policy-based authorization rules for access to the content within these data stores.

KuppingerCole’s Executive View describes the solutions in detail and offers advice to IT professionals looking for data-centric security. The Axiomatics Data Access Filter offers policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering for relational databases. Implemented as a database proxy, the product intercepts all connections to the database from any user or application and analyzes every SQL statement for potential violations of applicable security policies. In accordance to the ABAC approach, the authorization service may query multiple attribute sources for additional context information needed for a fine-grained access decision.

SmartGuard™ for Big Data (the most recent addition to Axiomatics’ data security portfolio) extends ABAC-based dynamic authorization to Hadoop Big Data stores. There’s a growing need to ensure consistent fine-grained access control and maintain regulatory compliance for Hadoop. These infrastructures often comprise multiple loosely coupled components, and Big Data stores are used to store massive amounts of data from numerous sources with multiple applications accessing them simultaneously. Utilizing ABAC for transparent dynamic access control to a Big Data store for multiple analytics applications allows enterprises to combine all the benefits of a single data warehouse with the traditional siloed approach, where each application has access only to its own data silo.

“For years, we have been tracking the information security market. As data security threats rise, Axiomatics continues to lead by offering solutions that help companies with fine-grained policy-based access control and dynamic data masking and filtering. Axiomatics Data Access Filter for Multiple Databases and Axiomatics SmartGuard™ for Big Data are a natural expansion of the company’s comprehensive suite of dynamic authorization solutions,” said Alexei Balaganski, lead analyst for KuppingerCole and author of the report. “Whether deployed standalone or as a part of an enterprise-wide ABAC infrastructure, these products provide an additional dynamic security and access control layer around multiple data stores transparently and without any application changes.”

“Our relentless focus on solving the toughest problems in data-centric security, have made Axiomatics the choice for IT professionals and companies looking for data security solutions to complex big data environments,” said Gerry Gebel, vice president of business development at Axiomatics. “We are honored to have such a distinguished analyst like KuppingerCole continue to review our suite of products. Their reports further underscore its commitment to delivering cutting-edge information on data security in the era of digital transformation.”

SafeDNS Web Filter Outperforms OpenDNS

Alexandria, VA, September 23, 2015 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — SafeDNS (https://www.safedns.com/) web filtering service is awarded Approved Parental Control Product by AV-Comparatives, a world leading test lab of online safety and antivirus solutions.

SafeDNS filtering system has been reviewed along with five other parental controls and got awesome scores from AV-Comparatives (http://www.av-comparatives.org/parental-control-reviews-2015/).

Having been vigorously tested in real-world environment SafeDNS web filtering solution shows great results in AV-Comparatives Parental Control Report of 2015. According to this report SafeDNS blocks over 98% of pornography. With zero rate of false positives (false alarms wrongly produced when trying to access expressly child-friendly domains) SafeDNS filtering system clearly proves its efficiency without overblocking its users.

SafeDNS test results outperform those of 18 similar products reviewed last year by AV-Comparatives (http://www.av-comparatives.org/parental-control-review-september-2014/). Overall result of SafeDNS web filtering service is significantly higher than the average score of all the products in last year’s Parental Control Report.

SafeDNS beats most of the competitors including OpenDNS, recently acquired by Cisco. Though OpenDNS is often regarded globally to be the leading developer of cloud web filtering solutions SafeDNS obviously surpasses it in general AV-Comparatives assessment as well as in blocking particular categories of harmful content online.

SafeDNS has proved to be a very reliable tool for blocking pornography which is the same or better than the 13 of the other parental controls tested last year. Many competing solutions in AV-Comparatives report are less efficient than SafeDNS in filtering out other child-unfriendly online resources (such as Abortion, Gambling, Hate or Weapons).

The company has achieved these outstanding results by constantly improving its products and service offering its customers sophisticated web content filtering solutions which provide customers, from home users to telcos, with an easy way to manage and control web access and an additional layer of online security against malware, phishing and botnets.

Company Bio: SafeDNS is a start-up founded in 2010 for developing cloud based web filtering solutions. In 2013 SafeDNS launched commercial version of its service for home, educational and corporate users. In 2014 SafeDNS released its web filtering platform for ISPs and mobile operators.

SafeDNS filtering servers are located throughout data centers in North/Central America, Europe and Asia. Every day the company processes over 2 billions queries from users of its filtering service. Now SafeDNS products and cloud service are used by more than 300 telcos, 4 000 organizations and tens of thousands of home users and about one million of anonymous free users worldwide.

Free PDF Protection Tool

While some companies struggle to protect their PDF eBooks and PDF documents from unauthorized access, many are protecting their PDF documents and files easily and inexpensively. Largely because they have mastered the proven (but little-known) process of protecting their PDF documents with quick and efficient PDF protection methods.

That’s the opinion of BookGuard Pro, PDF eBook security company, and designer of this new free tool, the PDF Protection Analyzer.

“Small and medium sized businesses and individual PDF publishers today need solid, reliable information on what works in PDF security- and what doesn’t,” says Roger Hall, PDF security specialist. “As a freelance online author and PDF security specialist, I have hundreds of people contacting me asking questions such as:

– How can I structure my PDF security process to protect my PDF so my new PDF eBook won’t be copied?
– How can I get more cost-effective results from PDF security?

“I designed the free PDF Protection Analyzer, to give these folks some of the answers. What makes this PDF tool different is this: it’s not based upon theories or untested ideas. Each of the methods built into the PDF tool has been thoroughly tested, and proven in real-world online book and PDF document launches.”

Unlike many of today’s PDF services, Hall points out, this new PDF process tool has been released at no charge. “A lot of companies and individuals can’t afford to hire online security consultants. And it takes time to read an entire security book, listen to a CD or attend an online security seminar,” notes Hall. “This free PDF Protection Analyzer has been created for them, and takes less than 2 minutes to get.”

PDF protection methods analyzed in the free PDF tool include:

– how PDF passwords may be easily compromised
– why PDF security, PDF wrapping and live monitoring of PDF access is essential for most commercial PDF documents
– where to get effective, free help on boosting your PDF protection

Customers need to know that they can grow without having to deal with multiple IT and data security partners.
