Protegrity Data Protection Platform 9.0 improves data security and sharing

Protegrity announced version 9.0 of the Protegrity Data Protection Platform with enhanced security and data sharing features so businesses can unleash the full power of their data in increasingly complex technology environments.

Companies compete on data results, but are often limited due to data security and privacy concerns. Platform updates include new data anonymization capabilities to deliver privacy-enhanced datasets for AI/ML and unified data security for multi-cloud environments to accelerate ‘innovation.

Protegrity data protection platform enables secure cloud migration, multi-cloud deployments, data sharing and collaboration, with support for major cloud providers including Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and Oracle Cloud, through a single, simplified interface. This single, end-to-end solution manages data security across the enterprise, streamlines security operations, and closes security gaps resulting from data protection across platforms.

Most companies protect their data in walled gardens (accessible only to users of a particular platform) which inherently present gaps, complexity and risk. Protection protects the data itself, wherever it resides, reducing security risks and ensuring policy compliance.

“Moving to the cloud is essential for businesses to drive continued innovation, but security challenges and complexity prevent them from unlocking the full potential of their data,” said Paul Mountford, CEO of Protegrity. “Version 9.0 of the Protegrity data protection platform enables organizations to make protected data more accessible and more productive so they can capitalize on the power of advanced analytics. When we provide granular data protection, we shift the enterprise data security model from ‘need to know to ‘need to share’, freeing data to deliver greater business value and innovation. »

Unified, multi-cloud data security builds business resiliency and agility

Enterprise cloud adoption is the most important technology investment for business transformation, with 98% of enterprises implementing multi-cloud strategies and architectures, according to the IBM Institute for Business Value.

But cloud adoption journeys have been hampered by data security and compliance issues, slowing timelines and stalled innovation. Modern businesses need flexible security tools to support a multi-cloud strategy.

Version 9.0 provides unified data security across an enterprise’s multicloud environment. Through an ecosystem of partner integrations, we embed data protection capabilities into the tools businesses need, like cloud-managed data warehouses.

Using a single, unified data protection platform across an organization’s vast multi-cloud infrastructure ensures consistently enforced and auditable data security. The offering enables data security and privacy to be consistent and pervasive, enabling enterprises to accelerate opportunities to use data to drive better business results and gain competitive advantage.

Anonymization capabilities provide analysis-ready, privacy-protected datasets for advanced data collaboration

With new anonymization capabilities designed to integrate into data science workflows, the Protegrity data protection platform delivers analysis-ready, privacy-protected datasets that accelerate access to data while enabling broader collaboration and analysis.

Data scientists can now request privacy-enhanced datasets with an audit report that ensures the privacy policy is applied to meet the client’s risk profile. When properly anonymized, the data retains a high degree of usefulness with the assurance that confidentiality will be maintained, allowing companies to use and monetize customer datasets securely.

With the Protegrity data protection platform, businesses can share secure data to collaborate with partners, customers, and other third parties to create value while minimizing risk and maximizing results. New data sharing and collaboration options support an unlimited number of internal and external use cases.

Next-generation logging architecture enables advanced threat hunting

In 2021, ransomware rose to the third-most common reason breaches wreak havoc on organizations, supply chains and people, according to Verizon’s 2021 Data Breach Investigation Report. As the volume of sensitive data continues to grow exponentially, security threats will also increase.

The latest version of the platform introduces a next-generation logging architecture capable of handling enterprise-scale workloads at millions of transactions per second. The new logging architecture produces audit logs that can be transferred into a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) tool for further analysis.

With next-generation logging, customers have access to increased transparency of their transactions for internal or external audits and the ability to leverage Protegrity’s user behavior analytics to detect and alert on misbehaviour. unusual access. Audit logs provided to a SIEM enrich the data used by threat hunting teams and accelerate their ability to detect intruders.

“We’ve worked closely with our customers to understand their cloud strategies and data security needs to help them unlock the next level of data innovation,” said Jeffrey Breen, chief product officer and vice -Executive President of Products and Strategy, Protegrity. “The latest release of the Data Protection Platform is the culmination of Protegrity’s deep knowledge and experience in the data protection industry.”
