American National deploys data loss prevention solution

American National Insurance Company has implemented a data loss prevention solution from Vontu in a bid to stop the loss of confidential information such as policy-holder data and other privacy-related information.

By CBR Staff Writer

Vontu says its data loss prevention solution, Vontu Prevent, is the only solution on the market that proactively prevents data loss over email and the web. The vendor claims its software integrates with email message chain and web infrastructure technologies, blocks communications containing confidential content, and routes messages to an encryption gateway for secure delivery, enabling enforcement of enterprise-wide encryption and archiving policies.

According to Vontu, at American National, Vontu Prevent will analyze email traffic and route messages containing confidential content to PGP Corporation’s PGP Universal for encryption and secure message delivery.

By preventing the loss of policy-holder data, American National will be demonstrating compliance with state and federal regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) and a growing number of privacy-related regulations.

Charles Addison, CIO of American National Insurance Company, said, At American National, we take a proactive approach to protecting the private information of our policy holders. The Vontu Prevent solution is a key component of our strategy. To meet the highest degree of compliance with both our own data security policies and state and federal regulations, we need a solution that can accurately detect confidential data, prevent it from leaving the network and redirect it, if necessary, for secure encryption. Vontu met all our requirements.
