Data security rules offer boost to Waltham’s Fidelis Media Coverage The latest media coverage from various outlets Fidelis Security Systems Inc. is glad that the government is finally seeing things its way. Fidelis has for years been supplying a combined hardware-software appliance that does one thing — stops data leakage from a network. “Data leakage” is the industry term that covers a wide area of undesirable activity, including those data breaches experienced by TJX Cos. Inc. in late 2006. Now, with Massachusetts slowly approaching a March 2010 deadline for the new company data security regulations that were enacted last fall, and a new partnership that will add to the ways Fidelis can keep data safe, the company is poised for growth that will bring it into the black, according to Kurt Bertone, vice president of strategic alliances at Fidelis, which is based in Waltham. “The company is well-funded by top-tier venture capital companies, but we are still a small company,” he said. “Our plan is to reach cash-flow break-even with our existing funding.” Those venture capital companies include Ascent Venture Partners and Tudor Ventures of Boston, Point Judith Capital of Rhode Island, and Inflection Point Ventures of Delaware, all of which were in Fidelis’ $22 million round in April 2008. “The company has been around since 2002, but it was really bootstrapped by a couple of guys for several years,” Bertone said. Now at 50 employees, Fidelis has linked up with a Palo Alto, Calif.-based company to keep file transfers secure. The new partnership is with Accellion Inc., which makes its own appliance — one that pulls attachments out of an e-mail before it leaves a network and creates a path to it through a secure HTTP link, helping reduce the likelihood that confidential or valuable information gets sent across the unsecure Internet via e-mail. With the Fidelis XPS product’s ability to do a “deep-session inspection” — essentially find out everything there is to know about any data passing through a network — applied to Accellion’s secure file transfers, the companies can now show network administrators the nature of such a file before it leaves the network or before it gets into its endpoint network. “According to Accellion, a very large percentage of data transfer is file transfer,” Bertone said. “This brings that into compliance.” Compliance is the name of the game for companies like Fidelis, said Nick Selby, co-founder of Cambridge Infosec Associates Inc., a New York-based risk-management consultancy. But that is quickly expanding. “The wider marketplace now is anyone who deals with customer information and is concerned with customer information and the impact of breaches of data,” he said. While Fidelis’ traditional verticals have been those companies that had to deal with data security compliance, such as financial services firms or health-care companies, Bertone is anticipating an uptick from all sectors of the business world that hold customer data in any form, as new laws like the Bay State’s get enacted. “The more regulations there are, the better it is, but compliance regs are not the only drivers,” Bertone said. “There is a need to protect the image and the brand of a company.” http://www.masshightech.com/stories/2009/09/21/daily46-Data-security-rules-offer-boost-to-Walthams-Fidelis.html Predefined Rules Brief descriptions on predefined network security rules are provided in this section. Internet Group Management Protocol The IGMP used for subscription or unsubscription to/from groups of multicast users. This protocol can be misused easily and that is why it is disabled by default. We recommend you not to enable this protocol unless you run applications which use multicast technologies (typically for transmission of audio or video data through the Internet). Ping and Tracert in, Ping and Tracert out Programs Ping and Tracert (Traceroute) are used to trace route in a network (to detect response of a remote computer). This is achieved through messages of ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol). First, a possible attacker tests whether as elected IP address responds to control messages. Blocking these messages will make your computer “invisible” and reduces chance of possible intrusions. All incoming Ping and Tracert messages (from the Internet) are blocked by default. These messages are allowed from the trusted area (administrator can for example test availability of a computer by the Ping command). Outgoing Ping and Tracert messages are permitted for both areas. These methods are usually used to verify network connection functionality or availability of a remote computer. Other ICMP packets Rule for other ICMP messages (i.e. redirections, destination is not available, etc.) Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol DHCP is used for automatic definition of TCP/IP parameters (IP address, network mask, default gateway, etc.). Warning: DHCP denial might cause that network connection of your computer will not work if TCP/IP parameters are defined through this protocol. Domain Name System DNS is used for translation of computer names to IP addresses. At least one connection to a DNS server must be permitted to enable definition through DNS names. Virtual Private Network Virtual private network (VPN) is a secure connection of two local networks (or connection of a remote client to a local network) via the Internet using an encrypted channel (so called tunnel). The Virtual Private Network rule allows/denies VPN establishment through the PPTP protocol (Microsofts proprietary protocol). Broadcasts Rules for packets with general address. In the Internet, this rule is also applied on packets with multicast addresses. Some observers are concerned that new rules governing the transfer of Internet domains between domain registrars that went into effect on Nov. 12 will facilitate theft of those domains and slamming by registrars. The new rules, originally announced by ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) on July 12, were approved unanimously by both ICANNs Generic Names Supporting Organization [GNSO] and its Board of Directors. About a year ago I wrote about problems with domain registration transfers that made it all too easy to steal someone elses domain. I got a shocking amount of mail from victims of domain theft at the time and developed a low opinion of registrars. It was clear they all wanted to just bury the matter, and they dont get the benefit of the doubt from me anymore. (Register.coms Web site is scrupulously lacking in any information for press to use for contacts. There was a time when they had a contact and just moved slow on it, but they lack even this now.) So I was ready to assume the worst when I read about the new rules. They streamline certain procedures so as to facilitate transfers in cases where the registrar previously holding the domain—the registrar of record—drags its feet. It seems the real problem, as ICANN puts it, was not registrars being too easy with transfers, but those not proceeding with a timely transfer when a legitimate request came in. And more specifically, Network Solutions has a lousy reputation in this regard. (Am I now accusing them of conflicting offenses, being too lax with transfer security and not willing enough to proceed with the transfer? Let them call me up and explain it to me.) It seems that the sorts of problems I was observing have less to do with the transfers between registrars than with other security policies of the registrar, specifically changing the administrative contact information. The new ICANN policies shouldnt make the problems any worse because they still require that the registrar of record contact the owner. If the owner information is incorrect, its really a separate issue. And if there is a real dispute over a domain transfer, there is a set and orderly policy for dispute resolution.
