Increasing the effectiveness of cybersecurity, risk and compliance is something that Dr. Guy Bunker views as a long term project rather than something that happens overnight. As the Senior Vice President of products at Clearswift, he has dedicated himself to the pursuit of information security technologies that not only protect individuals and organizations, but ones that do so in a way that fit seamlessly into a business without causing extra work or slowing everyday operations. It is with this outlook that he achieved the development of Adaptive Data Loss Prevention (Adaptive DLP) Solutions as well as the launch of ARgon; solutions that, instead of slowing business due to ‘stop and block’, enhance business. This is possible due to Adaptive DLP’s ability to automatically remove only the content which breaks policy and then send the rest of the email and attachments onwards. In the connected and collaborative world we live in today, Bunker saw the dire need of solutions that can protect company’s critical information but enable them to work collaboratively.
Bunker’s achievements not only impact Clearswift in its goal to provide strong security that enables business workflow, but also impact the security industry as a whole. The functionality that Adaptive Redaction supplies is changing perceptions in the marketplace around the effectiveness of DLP.
