Covelight Systems Enhances Security Features for Flagship Percept Privacy Protection and Fraud Management System
User Audit Data and Reports Now Encrypted for PCI-Compliant Installations
CARY, NC-November 1, 2005 â€” Covelight Systems, an innovator of solutions for privacy protection and fraud management, today announced the availability of Covelight Percept 2.6, now supporting the Payment Card Industry's (PCI) data encryption requirements.
The Covelight Systems Percept Privacy & Fraud Management System is a self-contained appliance that monitors Web application traffic, tracks each individual user, and compares individual user activity with individual and group norms to detect policy violations and suspicious activities as they occur. It also continuously audits user activity for regulatory compliance, and provides forensic data for incident investigation.
New with Percept 2.6
"Percept 2.6 stands out as a unique solution to TrueCredit because it provides monitoring in real-time at the application level and provides more actionable intelligence than what is available with traditional IDS solutions," said Scott Metzger, chief technology officer of TrueCredit, a division of TransUnion, who uses Percept for their customer service application. "This is specifically relevant for managing risk with insiders."
Percept encrypts forensic data on the appliance using the AES 256 CBC cipher suite. The advanced encryption standard (AES) was adopted by the U.S. NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) in November of 2001, and since 2003, has been approved by the US National Security Administration for the protection of classified information.
Percept 2.6 is available immediately.
Covelight Systems is the technology leader in privacy protection and fraud management for Web applications, and offers the only product with the capability to detect identity fraud, account fraud, insider misconduct and hacker attacks.
