The Solution

Aadhar Housing Finance Ltd. is using our Device Control and Content Aware Protection modules.

With Endpoint Protector, Aadhar Housing Finance Ltd. protects sensitive data such as personally identifiable information (PII), financial information, and other key documents. The solution also helps the company with RBI compliance.

The Device Control module offers a number of tools that allow organizations to control or block unauthorized devices. Besides blocking transfers of confidential data to removable media, it also prevents malware proliferation, which is a leading cause of data corruption and data loss.

Our solution helps financial institutions become compliant with the RBI regulation by setting policies to prevent sensitive customer data from being transferred over the web. These policies are often predefined, especially when it comes to PII that has to be protected under most data protection regulations. With our product, removable devices such as USB storage devices, printers, and ports like WiFi, Bluetooth can be monitored and managed. Endpoint Protector’s granularity offers companies more setting options for the type of data they want to protect.

In the Content Aware Protection module, filters can be enabled based on file type, predefined content, custom dictionaries, Regular Expressions, etc. Filters based on predefined content block documents containing sensitive information like credit card numbers, and other PII.

Endpoint Protector can be deployed using various cloud service providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Besides its easy deployment and management, it has a short learning curve and a user-friendly interface.
