Data Leakage Prevention Solution Protects Information Managed in the Contact Center


Recent research (1) shows a 29% increase in data breaches since 2013, with an average cost of $4 million per incident and an average cost of $158 per lost or stolen record. Other reports (2) point out that, for the first time, in 2015 security events traced to insiders have outranked security incidents by outsiders.

Altitude and Panda Security are partnering to provide an integrated monitoring and security platform that relies on big data and analytics to detect and block outsider and insider threats in the contact center. Both companies will work together to deliver endpoint protection, detection and response, data leak prevention and user/entity behavior analytics.

 “The deliberate or accidental release of sensitive data in contact centers is a problem with far reaching consequences as companies are required to comply with more regulation to take reasonable technical, physical and organizational measures to protect the security of sensitive information”, states Jesus Cuadrado, Business Solutions Manager at Altitude Software. “Together with Panda, we are bringing to the market a solution specifically designed to stop the loss of sensitive information in a contact center environment, focused on automating the protection and detection of mishandled data”.
