Dubai Islamic Bank deploys Symantec protection.

Dubai Islamic Bank, the largest Islamic bank in the UAE, has deployed Symantec Data Loss Prevention to enhance its protection, discovery and management of confidential data.

"We have always ensured compliance with regulatory requirements," said Saeed Belhoul, Group Information Security, Dubai Islamic Bank. "Following the deployment of Symantec Data Loss Prevention, we've seen a significant improvement in the efficiency of our security controls that are now easy to configure and the timely alerting mechanism means we're al-ways one step ahead of any potential data breach".

Banks across the region are mandated to comply with the PCI Data Security Standards, which require them to adhere to a set of specific security standards that protect card information during and after any financial transaction. This includes: the requirement to protect cardholder data; encrypt the transmission of card-holder data across open public networks; identify where confidential data is located; track and monitor all access to network resources and cardholder data; and to en-sure cardholder data is protected from loss.

Commenting on Symantec Data Loss Prevention, Belhoul said, "The technology is smart, it is able to automatically detect what needs to be protected, ensuring credit card and other important data is handled securely."

In addition to Data Loss Prevention, Symantec Enterprise Vault and Symantec Endpoint Protection have also been deployed in Dubai Islamic Bank. The adoption of Symantec Enterprise Vault Email Archiving with the Discovery Accelerator is helping the bank to lower the cost of data collection and facilitate the search and recovery process of archived items used for electronic discovery. Symantec Endpoint Protection is also deliv-ering success in protection against threats - protecting its 2,500 end users from malware all from a single, integrated console.
