Oxford, United Kingdom, 19th December, 2008 – Secerno, the technology leader in data security, today marks the launch of Secerno DataWallTM for SMEs with the announcement that Let Check, the UK’s most advanced tenant referencing company that provides instant credit checks and real-time verification on a wide range of personal ID, is now a customer. The release of Secerno DataWall 3.2 includes two new entry level versions of Secerno’s award-winning active database control solution targeted at SME and departmental scale deployments. Secerno DataWall for SMEs provides the exact same capability as the large enterprise version but is tailored for the exacting needs and limited budgets of smaller scale enterprises.

Through this solution – delivered to them via one of Secerno’s reseller partners, Preventia – Let Check is certain that database attacks are stopped before they lead to data loss, prevent internal policy breaches and drive down the cost and complexity of protection and compliance, all without interrupting the business or degrading performance.

Secerno DataWall now brings enterprise-class database security to SMEs with a low total cost of ownership. It provides multi-layered policies that map to specific business dynamics to control how time, location and users access the data. In addition to this, Secerno’s patent-protected, unique technology, SynoptiQ™ Engine understands the true intent of every SQL query and analyses with fine precision and total accuracy every query sent. Its zero-defect policy enforcement provides confidence since it ensures that legitimate business transactions will not be blocked.

Riz Gohir, Managing Director at Let Check, comments, “Our customers are our number one priority, so ensuring their personal data is protected on our databases is vital. We’re delighted to be able to rollout Secerno DataWall across our organisation, as it will provide robust protection to sensitive customer data and give us peace of mind that any unauthorised activity is caught, before it becomes a problem. ”

Emmanuel Nkwenti, Head of Marketing, Let Check added, “Our philosophy is to work with the best to maintain and compliment our standards and strategy. In this regard a partnership with Secerno made perfect sense. Their multiple award-winning proactive and analytical VMware security solution is the cream of the crop in the database security market”.

Nick Peaster, Sales Director at Preventia adds, “We have seen an increased demand from SMEs for better monitoring and protection of databases. Given the current economic climate, businesses are on edge and realise even more that their data is their lifeline, so it’s great to finally have a solution like Secerno DataWallTM to provide SMEs with an effective tool to protect their data.”

Steve Hurn, CEO of Secerno, concludes, “SMEs face exactly the same threats to their databases as larger organisations. They need to know that their data is safe and they also want to invest in solutions that will scale and provide protection as they grow as a business. This version of Secerno DataWall specifically meets these needs and we are delighted to welcome Let Check as a customer.”

Secerno DataWall™ creates createsccdd a rich understanding of application-to-database behaviour, imperative when building security from the ground-up.

About Secerno

Secerno, headquartered in Oxford, UK, is an established provider of active database control. It delivers the world’s most advanced and comprehensive intelligent activity monitoring and database policy enforcement solution: Secerno DataWall™ - now uniquely available in both a hardware and virtual appliance.

Secerno DataWall™ is designed to stop threats before data is lost or compromised (instead of simply monitoring and reporting after the damage is done). It accurately and actively blocks all threats to your data, even from trusted and privileged users. It offers the highest levels of protection against these threats and optimises compliance auditing, as well as delivering the ability to improve the security of applications.

At the core of Secerno DataWall™ is the patented SynoptiQ™ Engine, based on break-through research into efficient grammatical clustering. The SynoptiQ Engine uses Semantic Clustering™ to cluster queries automatically and intelligently into an Intent-Based Model™ of database environments; so they are distilled into meaningful information for efficient human review and automatic generation of a zero-defect policy that identifies with fine precision and total accuracy every kind of query that is allowed to reach a specified database – and specifies the actions to be taken on out-of-policy activity.

Uniquely, Secerno enforces a 100% positive security policy of only approved behaviour, providing the option to either log, alert, block or substitute database requests. Policy Channels™ enable strategists and administrators to add new and complex layers of rules that map policy to a company’s specific business needs.

Secerno offers protection to customers across industries including financial services, healthcare and pharmaceuticals, retail, and government agencies and departments. The company is funded by UK investors Amadeus Capital, Eden Ventures and SPARK Ventures. For more information, go to
