AGORA SecureWare Adds Compliance Modules to its Encrypted Trust Rooms
AGORA’s cloud-based Compliance Modules simplify compliance efforts and reduce risk for highly regulated industries.
Zürich, Switzerland and Ottawa, Canada — December 4, 2019 – (BUSINESS WIRE) Swiss-based compliance and security vendor AGORA SecureWare SA announced today the launch of AGORA Compliance Modules, an innovative and easy-to-use regulatory compliance solution to complement its secure encrypted collaboration software, AGORA Trust Rooms. AGORA Compliance Modules automatically scan, categorize, classify, and audit uploaded files, immediately encrypting and securing the content. Its policy-based compliance engine allows for tightly controlled access, movement and collaboration permissions of the files on a granular scale, all controlled and defined by user and corporate-set policies.
The AGORA Compliance Module’s scanning software employs an innovative combination of key word identifiers, proximity matching and pattern recognition to provide accurate assessments of a document’s type and level of sensitivity, from national and regional modifiers to specific documentation standards and key terms by vertical. This advanced level of sensitivity for content recognition allows organizations to confidently ensure that sensitive information is secured, and that policy is automatically enacted correctly for each document.
The increasing worldwide scope and challenges associated with protecting personally identifiable information and other highly sensitive content has heightened the need for regulated industries to have an easy-to-use, customizable, scalable, and automated system that streamlines decision-making and compliance management for sensitive content. AGORA Compliance Modules provide a safety net for enterprises to ensure their data practices meet regulations set by their industry and governments.
“With AGORA Compliance Modules, organizations have ubiquitous control and visibility over their data compliance posture, including the ability to maintain ongoing content compliance lifecycle, with no effort or change in workflow placed on the user,” said Patrick Herber, AGORA’s Chief Technology Officer. “By simply dragging and dropping one’s files into an encrypted AGORA Trust Room, files are automatically scanned for sensitive or regulated content, automatically categorized and, immediately encrypted on the fly without any user intervention.”
“AGORA has delivered a comprehensive yet very easy-to-use solution for organisations who might be overwhelmed by compliance requirements. Within just a few clicks, AGORA Trust Rooms and Compliance Modules handle everything seamlessly. Fantastic!” – Martin Law, CEO AgilityIS – UK
