Safe-T Launches RSAccess Solution to Revolutionize the Traditional Role of DMZ
Disruptive Secure Front-End solution minimizes cyber-attacks by eliminating data exposure in the DMZ and holes in the firewall
HERZLIA, Israel, November 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ –
Safe-T, a provider of secure front-end and enterprise collaboration solutions,
announced today the launch of its disruptive front-end perimeter security solution,
RSAccess Secure Front End. Using Safe-T’s patented technology, RSAccess eliminates the
need to store sensitive data in the DMZ (demilitarized zone) and to maintain incoming
firewall ports, which can expose the internal network to cyber-attacks. RSAccess reduces
the risk of cyber-attacks and simplifies network configurations resulting in reduced
operating expenses and the costs associated with data loss.
In response to a rising number of cyber-attacks, many organizations have added a DMZ
to prevent outside users from gaining direct access to company confidential data. However,
this approach can put sensitive information that resides in the DMZ at risk. Moreover,
organizations usually deploy a reverse-proxy solution that maintains incoming firewall
ports from the DMZ to the internal network of the organization thereby exposing the
internal network to cyber-attacks.
Utilizing two nodes, one on each side of the firewall, RSAccess receives requests and
streams data, rather than the traditional method of storing sensitive data in the DMZ.
RSAccess inspects and controls incoming traffic on the application layer to detect and
mitigate attacks of viruses, Trojans and malware both on clear channels and encrypted
channels such as HTTPS.
RSAccess paves the path to the elimination of the traditional role of the DMZ and
improves security by closing incoming firewall ports, preventing hackers from accessing
the internal network and eliminating sensitive data from the applications servers and
database in the DMZ. This technology can also be used to secure connectivity between
classified networks in the organization without exposing one sub-network to another.
Providing an immediate cost savings by eliminating duplicated application licenses and
the hardware costs of front-end servers, RSAccess also introduces operational efficiency
by eliminating the need for constant data synchronization between the internal application
servers and the servers at the DMZ.
ECI Telecom currently uses Safe-T’s RSAccess to tighten its DMZ security and enable
secure sharing of sensitive information with its 2,400 employees, suppliers, partners and
customers across the globe. Yuval Illuz, Head of Global Infrastructure and IT Operations
at ECI Telecom commented, “With RSAccess we were able to eliminate some of our web
front-end servers in the DMZ, which resulted in a reduction of files storage in the DMZ, a
cost reduction of applications servers and licenses and also worry-free secure
collaboration with outside parties. Safe-T’s innovative solution has improved both our IT
security and efficiency.”
“At Safe-T we are committed to revolutionizing the way organizations utilize the DMZ.
With RSAccess organizations can take a fresh look at the way they deploy and secure
applications, and eventually to eliminate the expensive applications’ front-end servers
and databases from the DMZ, while keeping their sensitive data inside the organization,”
said Ronen Kenig, VP of Marketing and Product Management at Safe-T. “Our strategy is to
provide sophisticated systems that protect enterprise data, and are also easy to use and
deploy to bring value to our customers.”
