Data breach remains the leading cause of financial loss for organizations, costing an average of $197 per record, according to a 2007 study by the Ponemon Institute. The average data breach could cost upwards of $6.3 million per incident with potential for lost business opportunity to the tune of $128 per leaked customer record. In order to prevent accidental and malicious loss of confidential data, Sanctuary provides complete control over endpoints and clear visibility into where data is stored and where it is going.

Using PGP® encryption with the Sanctuary technology, administrators can easily establish and enforce granular encryption policies for removable storage devices, review device usage logs, and monitor the content of data transferred to and from devices.
"Protecting data is more important than ever given the mounting security risks associated with today's mobile workforce and compliance mandates. At all times, we need to know that no confidential data leaves the premises that should not and no malware infects our network via virus-laden device or rogue application," said Rob Israel, CIO, John C. Lincoln Health Network.
