FAQ/Misconceptions


1. We started a P2P lab on a dedicated laptop at my company to search for disclosed files. How is what you do different than what we are already doing? Understand that when searching the P2P from one PC or multiple computers, you have a limited view of the entire network. Tiversa’s systems monitor over 1.8 billion searches a day and over 550 million P2P nodes. Our solution enables us to view the entire network and thus provide real-time, actionable information regarding sensitive file disclosures related to your organization.

2. Doesn't my firewall protect me against this threat? No. P2P applications have been designed to thwart firewalls after years of open source community development. Tiversa continues to find that current industry safeguards are not effective against P2P file sharing. All Tiversa enterprise organizations employ such security safeguards.

3. We have a policy against P2P. Why would this be a problem for our organization? As good as policy is, users will continue to use the path of least resistance. This may mean working from home or accessing corporate files from a non-work PC. Despite the safeguards taken at the corporate perimeter, they simply are not in place outside of it, which we continue to find. This puts your organization's sensitive and confidential data at risk.

4. How do we implement Tiversa's technology? Is there hardware to configure and software to install? Tiversa's solution is P2P Network Native™ requiring no hardware or software installation.

5. We currently use a DLP solution. Wouldn't this catch any sensitive data leaks leaving my corporate environment? One thing to note regarding file-sharing risk is that, in many cases, the Extended Enterprise (suppliers, contractors, remote employees, partners and agents) is actually disclosing files outside the corporate network. This occurs frequently despite the hardware, procedures and policies in place.

Imagine a key supplier, partner, or agent inadvertently sharing their entire hard drive (that contains sensitive corporate data) because they don't have the same security measures that your organization may have in place. Tiversa has identified this as a major privacy and security concern common across industries.

6. We currently utilize services that "monitor the internet". Why should we consider Tiversa's solution? There is a common misrepresentation of internet monitoring services within the marketplace. The majority of these services are actually web monitoring services that provide roughly 10% of total internet coverage (according to independent studies).

It must be emphasized that P2P file sharing networks are not part of the World Wide Web. P2P file sharing networks are an entirely separate, internet-based network with unique searches, files, and users. The P2P is extremely large. In fact, more users search the P2P for information than the World Wide Web, with over 1.8 billion searches per day occurring on the P2P networks. It is also estimated that over 550 million users have file sharing applications, and internet service providers have stated that up to 70% of internet traffic is consumed solely by P2P networks.

Organizations that utilize these web monitoring services must realize that P2P file-sharing networks represent significant risks that are not addressed by traditional safeguards.
