About Drainware

Between 2011 and 2014 we developed a Cloud Platform with DLP capabilities, now in 2020 it is Open Source. It was a very cool technology at that time, we used mongo, redis, rabbitmq, .. among other technologies. Most of the magic was inside the endpoint, written in C++.

The team was composed by:

Cristian Sandoval,

Marco Lojo,

Antonio Moreno,

among others

This product is able to identify data leaks in buffers like the clipboard, screenshot (OCR), … monitor removable devices, network units, applications (minifilter driver), cloud apps (dropbox, one drive, google drive), printer (OCR), …

It uses geolocation based on the SSIDs using google location services to track stolen devices or known when a device was located when the data leak was performed.

It also comes with a basic sandbox to freeze applications abused by exploits by detecting suspicious traces in memory like nop-sled, heap-spray, ….

One of the coolest features was the distributed search across all endpoints of the organization. It was possible to find files, emails, documents, …

Another interesting feature is that the endpoint includes a PHP interpreter to run callbacks or create validators based in regular expressions, REST API calls or whatever you can imagine. It also uses ADS, ssdeep and several fun things you will find browsing into the code.
