Data and IP protection

Citrix helps healthcare customer provide a patient-friendly screening option

Safeguard sensitive information from theft and loss, and IP from infringement and misappropriation

Intellectual property (IP) and other sensitive business data are prime targets for attacks. Information like trade secrets, customer records, business plans, and financial data are highly valuable to cyber criminals, state actors, hacktivists, and in some cases, even malicious insiders.

Traditional security products aren’t enough to ensure enterprise data is protected from theft, loss, or alteration. IT and security teams need a proactive approach to security.

Control data and grant access to IP based on each user’s needs while ensuring privacy, achieving compliance, thwarting attacks, and preventing data loss or alteration.

Data loss

Organizations across industries have sensitive business information such as business plans, financial information, classified data and privileged communications, customer information, or personnel records—and it’s all at risk for exploitation, loss or accidental sharing. Intellectual property, such as copyrights, designs, patents, and trade secrets that are unique to your organization, sometimes can be accidentally shared by a well-intended employee or maliciously through an attack or insider theft.

To fully secure your organization against data loss, organizations need an intelligent, comprehensive security solution that provides access on an as-needed basis, enables tracking and data monitoring, and offers the ability to quickly disable user credentials. Ensuring that enterprise data is protected from leaks or hacks is crucial because a data breach can quickly result in loss of trust and reputation, penalties or fines, and lost revenue.

Legacy apps

In a typical organization, there is technology sprawl – application sprawl, network sprawl, and more recently cloud sprawl. Services built on multiple cloud infrastructures and SaaS apps are used in conjunction with business-critical legacy and custom applications built on-prem in the last 25 to 30 years.

Many organizations still rely on legacy desktop and Windows applications for their operations and will for years to come. Yet, updating and upgrading such applications is challenging, costly, time consuming and may not be worth the investment. IT will need to securely deploy these apps to users without re-writing the apps, including to users current and mobile devices, through virtualization.

Because Citrix has designed XenApp 6.5 with its customers’ information security in mind, the solution protects DSME from potentially damaging leaks of proprietary CAD drawings or designs. Rather than storing sensitive design work on employees’ individual computer desktops, all project data remains in secure central storage. This allows external design partners to collaborate securely with internal design teams without any data leaving the Daewoo environment. We are making efforts to strengthen our global competitiveness by securing our own design technology.
