ControlCase Announces Breakthrough Developments in Card Data Discovery Scanning

ControlCase offers an agentless data discovery tool which allows scanning for different types of data, produces scalable results and eliminates false positives.

RESTON, Va., April 30, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- ControlCase, a leading global provider of Compliance as a Service (CaaS), Certifications, and IT Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) software announced the release of ControlCase Card Data Discovery (CDD) Version 6. This marks the latest upgrade to the renowned agentless data scanning platform which searches for sensitive data and cardholder data; including PAN, track data, PINs and CVVs across the enterprise, eliminating the need to run separate scans on different computers. It was one of the first comprehensive scanners to not only search for cardholder data in file systems but also in commercial and open-source databases. CDD V6 features both new and significant improvements; based on user feedback. 

Governance, Risk and Compliance

"Locating and protecting specific types of confidential information is a core component of a proactive security and data management process and is a key requirement within the majority of industry related standards and regulations, such as PCI and HIPAA" said Ashwani Kaul, President of ControlCase Technologies.
CDD finds unencrypted data across the whole enterprise from one central location. Once data and associated IT assets have been identified, we work with our clients to determine if appropriate controls have been implemented. This may lead to remediation, implementing additional safeguards or removing the data.

CDD Version 6 offers an exceptional level of customer experience with a keen focus on precision to ensure clients find unencrypted card data within their environment. New features include supporting scanning for IBM DB2 and Informix databases and SharePoint scanning via a Web interface. Additionally, CDD V6 allows scanning of images and pictures through Optical Character Recognition (OCR).
This latest version also includes significant speed and false positive algorithm improvements.

Key new and enhanced features in the CDD V6:

·         IBM DB2 and Informix database support

·         OCR support for scanning card numbers in images

·         SharePoint scanning via the Web interface

·         IBM Notes support

·         Asset based view enhancements

·         Asset based reporting for scan results

·         Email Server using IMAP protocol support

·         Support for custom BIN range scanning in Database, Linux and Exchange server scanning

 "We continue to strengthen our products and offerings; reinforcing our commitment to information security and risk management for our clients," said Kaul.
CDD is an industry leading data discovery solution, with over 1 million licences currently issued to more than 2,000 customers; including leading retailers, banks and service providers across the globe.
