K logix Introduces The K logix Data Security Quadrant(TM) on New WebsiteEnables Enterprise Organizations to Easily Evaluate and Measure Security Efforts Against the Industry; Provides Global Security Snapshot (October 18, 2011)
BROOKLINE, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/18/11 -- K logix, LLC, the leading data security company, today announced The K logix Data Security Quadrant, a simple and powerful interactive tool that lets business stakeholders, IT professionals and researchers evaluate and compare their own data protection programs against the efforts of their peers. It is completely anonymous and changes constantly based on the data supplied by contributors. The Quadrant is accessed on the new K logix website at www.klogixcorp.com.
"As we talked to clients and prospects about data security, we understood that nearly all struggled with creating a comprehensive framework that balanced policy and procedures with technology solutions. Even those few organizations that felt prepared to effectively combat and reduce data loss were still nervous of the unknown," said Kevin West, CEO of K logix.
Continued West, "Quite simply, data security is hard, but vitally necessary to the success of business. The Quadrant gives organizations an opportunity to honestly assess their current approach, and then make the necessary changes to move along a path to better data protection."
The Quadrant asks IT professionals and executives to evaluate their approach and preparedness in handling three common situations -- accidental employee misuse of personally identifiable information (PII), corporate negligence, and malicious attacks -- and then plot their organization in the appropriate spot on the grid. These quadrants include:
1. Technology-driven - Organizations in this quadrant lack security policy, but they have invested heavily in technology to safeguard data.
2. Documented - These companies have sound policy in place, but they do not have the necessary technology to enforce policies and protect against inadvertent employee negligence.
3. Exposed - Organizations that find themselves in this quadrant are in a dangerous position -- lacking in policy and technology.
4. Prepared - These companies have technology and process, and understand data security is an evolving art, and that they must be constantly vigilant.
"The goal of the Quadrant is to get people thinking about data protection. What steps does an organization need to take to reduce risk, improve security and be better prepared to face internal and external threats?" said Kevin Pouche, Chief Operating Officer of K logix. "The Quadrant asks organizations to evaluate data security in a new way. It also provides important industry insight for benchmarking purposes."
