A Monitor, not a firewall

This does not prevent users from sending sensitive information insecurely, but it does detect and report such breaches, so that network administrators can take action to track the perpetrators. Data leaks can often be the result of careless employees, rather than hackers - and employees can be educated to correct use of sensitive data.

Secure your passwords

Don't let your employees send passwords via insecure channels, define a password fragment as a Red Flag to detect careless network users.

What is Active Intrusion Detection?

Understanding Red Flags

"Red Flags" constitute sensitive information, be this server passwords, the company credit card, nuclear launch codes (*joke) etc. It should be long enough so that the "Red Flag" does not appear randomly in a stream of data that is completely unrelated, such as an image or video.

Also, it's recommended that you don't include complete passwords or credit card numbers as "Red Flags" since the detection software itself could be used as a vector.

What about secure data?

If the data is sent via HTTPS, a secure VPN, or otherwise encrypted, then this constitutes secure transfer, and will not trigger a warning. Secure transport of sensitive data is considered less of a security risk.

Is this foolproof?

No. It is designed to be used in conjunction with good network security policies, including Firewalls, and strong user authentication. This does not protect against hackers or careless employees, but it can help detect when a data leak occurs and allows network administrators the opportunity to quickly reset passwords before any unauthorised party uses the leaked passwords.

And how much does this cost?
