nexTier Networks Inc (nexTier), the company that is revolutionizing information security and data leak prevention through its unique semantic analysis technology, announced that it has appointed Powerbloc Generation (M) Sdn Bhd (Powerbloc) as the authorized distributor of its Data Leak Prevention (DLP) solution for Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. The solution is to help organisations prevent malicious leaks of sensitive information and mitigate data security risks. One of the biggest challenges for organizations today is protecting ever-increasing amounts of sensitive data, and that data is increasingly unstructured and harder to discover. Leaks of sensitive data can result in monetary losses as well as irreparable damage to the organization’s reputation and credibility. Especially in the internet age, organizations are more at risk as stories about high-profile data leakages involving personal and corporate data continue to appear. While in some cases, the data leakage is unintentional, others are done maliciously. nexTier’s DLP technology is designed to address the significant limitations of other DLP products by greatly reducing deployment time and keeping data storage requirements to a minimum. It safeguards both structured and unstructured data with minimal human intervention to protect companies against both inadvertent and malicious attacks while complying with government and regulatory mandates, such as the Personal Data Protection Act (PDPA) that was gazetted in 2010 in Malaysia and came into effect in June 2012.
