Secuware, a leading provider of Windows enterprise network infrastructure for government and commercial enterprises, today announced the opening of the company's North American headquarters in Sunnyvale, California.
Secuware was founded in 1998 to provide proactive security for NATO and the Ministry of Defense in Spain; the fruits of those early developments now protect the users, applications, devices, and data in almost every department of the Spanish government, as well as a growing number of global commercial ventures in Europe and North America.
"With the opening of the company's North American headquarters, US enterprises will have the opportunity to benefit from the Secuware Security Framework," stated Carlos Jimenez, President and CEO of Secuware. "We look forward to assisting commercial and government organizations in regaining control of their Windows networks."
SSF imposes a security framework that runs before Windows, protecting everything from the boot process onwards in a way that is completely transparent to end users. It's a multidimensional solution that creates closed circuits of information in which only authorized individuals using authorized devices and authorized applications can access authorized data. SSF is highly scalable and adaptable to different needs and situations: data may be allowed to change under certain conditions (for example, if it is held on a specific device and/or by a specific user and/or being used by a specific application), but applications are never allowed to change (preventing malware infections).
SSF offers a robust, stable solution through:
-- Applying 256-bit encryption to all designated data, applications, and devices -- Tight integration with Windows, directly updating the Active Directory schema -- Preventing users from connecting to unauthorized hardware devices such as USB drives -- Limiting the action that may be taken with protected information, such as screen capture or hard-copy printing -- Logging of system security events to maintain an audit trail for compliance reporting -- Strengthening internal security by separating IT and information security controls
"SSF provides a complete operating infrastructure, not just access control and encryption," noted Feliciano Rivera, General Manager of Secuware's North American operations. "The strength and simplicity of this approach has already been recognized by many government departments and large commercial enterprises in Spain and Mexico, including Telefonica, Warner Brothers and Wal-Mart. We believe CIOs in North America are ready for a trusted computing solution that means they need no longer fear reading about stolen laptops with sensitive data and unstable applications hijacked by malware on the front page of the Wall Street Journal but which does not require a huge investment of time, resources, and money to implement."
Secuware is a leading provider of secure IT infrastructure solutions for the enterprise. The company's flagship product, Secuware Security Framework (SSF) protects sensitive information on desktops, laptops, and other devices while blocking unauthorized access to local and network resources. Founded in 1998 to provide proactive security for the Ministry of Defense in Spain, the company's operations and customer base now extend to government and commercial entities across several continents.
