  • Publication number: 20140007246
    Abstract: Methods and systems for Data Leak Prevention (DLP) in an enterprise network are provided. According to one embodiment a data leak protection method is provided. A network device receives information regarding a watermark filtering rule, including a sensitivity level and an action to be applied to files observed by the network device matching the watermark filtering rule. The network device scans a file attempted to be passed through the network device by locating a watermark embedded within the file and comparing a sensitivity level associated with the watermark to the sensitivity level of the watermark filtering rule. If the sensitivity levels match, then the network device performs the action specified by the watermark filtering rule.

  • Patent number: 7739493
    Abstract: A system for facilitating secure remote access to sensitive data is provided. The system includes a plurality of electronic devices. These electronic devices are under the control of an organization. The system also includes a data router. When the data router obtains sensitive data that is to be made available to remote clients, the data router secures the sensitive data and transmits the secured sensitive data over a first communication channel to an organization-controlled server. When the data router obtains other data that is to be made available to remote clients, the data router transmits the other data over the second communication channel to a third-party server.

  • Patent number: 7701247
    Abstract: Apparatus and method for outputting data from an integrated circuit having programmable logic for Single-Event Upset tolerant operation is described. Configuration memory associated with the programmable logic is read. Bits of the configuration memory read are error checked. Buffers are cycled to select one to load and another one to unload responsive to completion of each error checking cycle of the bits. For a cycle of the error checking, a first data portion is loaded into one buffer of the buffers for the cycle, it is verified whether the bits are valid for the cycle, and a second data portion is unloaded from another buffer of the buffers responsive to the bits being valid for the cycle.

  • Patent number: 7620875
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and program storage device that provides an error correction code memory system with a small footprint and byte write operation. A memory controller virtualizes the memory controller interface, multiplexes ECC data onto the same pins as data, and stores replicated ECC data structures interleaved with data in system memory. These mechanisms enable a range of very cost effective small memory subsystems that support ECC operation in a minimum of standard commodity memory devices. ECC encoding is provided to support efficient byte write operations.
