And this is exactly what a Texas based firm has been doing over the past twoyears since its inception. iScan Online, founded in 2012 with its cloud based data breach prevention platform has been enabling organizations to identify potential data breaches before they even occur. The combined intelligence driven platform identifies unprotected sensitive data at rest along with the security threats and vulnerabilities that affect the host where the data is stored. Along with the vulnerabilities and breach risk count by host, the combined intelligencealso helps organizations to visualize and calculate the potential liability in dollars for each endpoint at risk, thus facilitating remediation by taking action on a priority basis.
A Pioneer in The Data Breach Prevention Space
In most data breach attacks, data at rest is left exposed on critical endpoints and thus has become an open gateway for attackers. Many companies have tried to address the threat of a data breach with various legacy tools such as vulnerability assessments and DLP
The firm’s data breach prevention platform offers to be of great service with its highly scalable cloud infrastructure and multi-tenant features. With the powerful iScan cloud console, organizations can now gain instant view into the potential risk of a data breach and manage one to one million endpoints effortlessly. Its host based technology helps inspect the critical endpoints of the unprotected data at rest and of the security threats and can be deployed using any existing systems management, software distribution or remote monitoring and management tools along with web application, Wi-Fi access points or VPN connections.
iScan Online Data Breach Prevention Platform currently supportsWindows Desktop - Windows XP to Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2003 to Server 2012, Mac OS X - 10.6 and higher, Ubuntu Linux - 12.04 and higher, Redhat Linux - RHEL 5 and higher, Centos Linux - 5.x and higher, Apple iOS - 5.1 and higher, Android - 2.3 and higher endpoints.

On the future roadmap from the words of Carl Banzhof, CEO, iScan Online, “We look to expand our foot print into mid-size and enterprise accounts and continue to expand our product offerings to include services that compliment and extend the data breach prevention lifecycle”.
