The product is also designed to automatically block malware that attempts to connect to control servers.
OneTrust announced the launch of its OneTrust Data Discovery Partner Program, integrating solutions with partners such as BigID, Dataguise, IBM Security and Varonis.

Netsanity launched NetsanityVPN, designed to offer mobile device users a secure way to connect and communicate through the public internet without concern about logging or privacy.

Google introduced a new Chrome Extension called Password Checkup to automatically check whether a user’s passwords were exposed in a data breach, The Verge reports. The service will check any login details against a database of approximately 4 billion usernames and passwords, alerting users to any match.
