Besides these incident lists, Vontu provides an executive dashboard and incident summaries that identify security trends within an organization. Moreover, Vontu 7 includes more than 50 new system reports. These prebuilt templates include compliance reports, such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, and PCI security standards. In addition to the breadth of reports, I liked the new multidimensional summaries. For instance, I displayed a report of all data-in-motion incidents and filtered it to see just high-severity incidents last month. I then summarized the results by business unit and policy violated to pinpoint the location of data loss risk and the precise type of risk.
On the technology side, Vontu continues to be very scalable and flexible. I really like the ability to deploy the software on existing Windows or Linux servers. Vontu 7 also adds database encryption to prevent anyone with database server administration privileges from directly accessing the Vontu database without a trace; this is especially important for overall system integrity and auditing because no one can make changes to records without the edits appearing in Vontu logs.
Vontu 7 maintains its accurate detection of security breaches, and it now handles 32 Western and Asian languages. With the exception of blocking at the end point, the various modules provide thorough data leak protection. Also important is how well Vontu integrates the modules (which were all developed in-house). The resulting centralized policy management makes the system easy to maintain while producing reports covering all possible data leak pathways.
