OTTAWA, June 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Validian Corp. (OTCQB:VLDI), announced that it is first-to-market with a unique "Top Down Approach," which is the next generation of cyber security technology for the management and protection of digital information, data and assets. Traditional cyber security is based on what the industry refers to as "Ground-Up," which comprises adding layers of security on top of each other. While "Ground Up" security is necessary, it clearly is not sufficient as the onslaught of successful cyber attacks against major organizations and governments continues unabated, increasingly aimed at the hacking and theft of valuable digital information. Furthermore, the latest series of news releases regarding cyber attacks and cyber security breaches, including those by foreign governments, support that alternative cyber security approaches are relying more on detecting breaches that have occurred to mitigate losses or undertaking post-attack forensic analysis to identify the hackers or sources of the attacks. Conversely, Validian's unique "Top Down Approach" prevents attacks and unauthorized access by preventing hackers from gaining access in the first place, which is not achievable by only using "Ground Up" security, including firewalls, end user authentication and intrusion detection devices. Validian extends its protection to all points of storage, access, transfer and policy management of digital information, data and assets. Most importantly, it is not just what Validian does, rather how it does it that makes Validian's "Top Down Approach" both unique and so effective. "The continuing high profile and successful cyber attacks against major organizations and governments that are protected by the best cyber security available in the market today have now started to make these organizations and governments receptive to Validian's different approach that can prevent these cyber attacks. This makes Validian's pending release of its next versions 2.1 and 3.0 for mobile during 2013 very timely," commented Validian President and CEO, Bruce Benn.
