In order to obtain control over the access to the confidential data of the company and to prevent data leaks, TNT Express Ukraine has implemented DeviceLock software product.
According to Ihor Tolmachov, Head of the IT Department at TNT Express Ukraine, the need for DeviceLock arose due to the company’s operations in a highly competitive market, where a leak of confidential data may inflict a lot of damage on the company. “Surprisingly, a large portion of flaws in the information security of the company was caused by insider activities, instead of hacker attacks or malware. Our task was to establish control over the information flow within the company,” said Ihor Tolmachov.
Making their choice among products that would perform this task in the infrastructure of 350 workstations and over 40 servers and routers, the management decided on DeviceLock, picking it from among the competing solutions for its simplicity and efficiency. The implementation of DeviceLock gave the IT department full control over the devices connected to workstations, the way these devices are used, and what information is copied to them. Special emphasis was made on the shadowing of data copied to external media, which gave the administrator full awareness of the specific documents undergoing certain operations. The deployment and implementation process was also quite simple, partly due to the professional technical assistance from SPro, Ltd., a certified DeviceLock dealer in Ukraine.
