DRACOON and Safe-T Cooperate to Vanquish Unwanted Data Access

Regensburg, Germany and Herzliya, Israel, June 19, 2018 – DRACOON, an enterprise file sharing expert and leader in the German-speaking market, cooperates with Safe-T, one of the leading international providers of software-defined access solutions.

The multi-award winning company from Israel offers unique solutions with its patented products to reduce attacks on mission-critical services and data.  Especially for companies with highly sensitive data, such as in the financial sector, healthcare, the energy industry, public authorities, government, and many more industries, the protection against cyber attacks is becoming increasingly important. The cooperation between DRACOON and Safe-T and the connection of both systems will make  unintentional data access almost impossible in the future.

The increasing use of cloud applications creates challenges for companies and organizations. If you want to work with data in the cloud, you need access through the firewall, for example via VPN connection. Figuratively speaking, the firewall opens the door for the user, lets him in and then checks which authorizations are available to him. At the same time, there is a risk. When opening its virtual door, the company´s internal network IP will also be visible to third parties. This scenario provides an ideal gateway for external cyber attacks.

Safe-T´s patented Software Defined Access is different. Every user who knocks on the firewall must authenticate himself. All permissions are checked by an external node (Access and/or Authentification Gateway). An internal node (controller) sets up an external connection to the external node and pulls the session in via the outbound connection.

The special feature of Safe-T´s technology: There are no open ports from outside to inside. The firewall will stay closed at all the times – it will make it impossible for third parties to access.

It also improves productivity, efficiency, security, and compliance by protecting companies from unwanted data transmission, data leakage, malware, and ransomware. Safe-T conceals data, hiding applications and services from hostile, unauthorized access. Sensitive data, applications, services, and networks remain virtually invisible, unless it involves a legitimate access.

Safe-T masks data, hiding applications and services from hostile, unauthorized access. Sensitive data, applications, services and networks remain virtually invisible. DRACOON, on the other hand, versions all stored data. If a Trojan attack occurs, all data can be recovered immediately from the Recycle Bin. The fine-grained authorization concept also specifies very specifically which users are granted access rights to which data. In addition, the reporting tool and the audit log record all data movements seamlessly.

“When developing DRACOON, data protection and privacy were deliberately taken into account right from the start, and we tailored our product to the growing threats from outside and from within, providing an optimal basis for secure collaboration,” said Marc Schieder, CIO of DRACOON and initiator of the cooperation. “It brings together a number of well-thought-out features that work together to maximize data security, allowing businesses to stay on safe ground at all times, and working with Safe-T gives us a solution that gives unwanted data access absolutely no chance,” Schieder continues.

“We are thrilled to be cooperating with DRACOON,” said Shachar Daniel, CEO of Safe-T. “By jointly deploying Safe-T Software Defined Access in DRACOON’s hybrid cloud, our customers will benefit from both secure cloud-based and on-premises application access.”

Both solutions meet the highest safety standards. DRACOON was recently the first German software manufacturer to be certified with the European Privacy Seal (EuroPriSe) GDPR / EU-DSGVO.
