Backbone Security Announces Steganography Detection Policy for Fidelis XPS Customers

Steganography Detection Policy

FAIRMONT, W.Va., Aug. 27 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Backbone Security, the global leader in digital steganography detection tools, is pleased to announce availability of a Steganography Detection Policy (SDP) for enterprises protected by Fidelis Security Systems' flagship session-level network security solution, Fidelis XPS(TM). The SDP gives Fidelis XPS' customers the capability to detect insiders downloading digital steganography applications on their networks.

Steganography is a method of concealing the existence of data by hiding it within, or appending it to, another file. Unlike encrypting data the way cryptography does, steganography hides the very existence of the data in such a way that it is undetectable under traditional traffic-pattern analysis. Steganography is most often used for malicious purposes such as stealing information or concealing criminal or terrorist activity.

The SDP is based on hash values of file artifacts ("fingerprints") associated with over 850 steganography applications in the Steganography Application Fingerprint Database (SAFDB) developed in Backbone's Steganography Analysis and Research Center. SAFDB is the world's largest commercially available hash set exclusive to digital steganography applications and can be used to determine whether files entering or leaving an enterprise network can be associated with a particular digital steganography application or other data-hiding application.

"With this policy, Fidelis XPS customers can counter the growing threat from insider use of steganography to steal sensitive information such as PHI, PII, or other sensitive information including intellectual property," said Jim Wingate, Vice President of Backbone and Director of the SARC.

The SDP is available on a monthly or annual subscription basis. Customers can import the policy directly into Fidelis XPS' CommandPost(TM) management console, and then distribute the policy to all, or selected, Fidelis XPS sensors.
