Symmetry Systems Solves Data Security Challenges and Reduces Risk with Actionable Insights

glowing data visualization overlay

Most security and compliance problems persist because organizations focus on protecting data in the wrong place—the systems and networks where it’s stored — instead of securing the data itself.

Symmetry Systems overcomes the complexity of securing data at scale by providing the answers necessary to solve your real data security problems.


Instantly know what data you have, where it’s located, who and what can access it, and what they’re doing with it—updated as it moves through your enterprise.


Maintain control of your data at scale—keeping pace with your rapidly growing data, data stores, and hybrid-cloud environments.


Align your data security policies to overlapping regulations with context around when and where the data is stored or accessed.

Data Security Based on Actionable Insights

DataGuard Platform

Maintain Control of Your Data Security Posture

DataGuard DSPM provides precise and accurate insight into the security of data across the enterprise.

Symmetry Systems Zero-Trust Data Assessments enable organizations to identify gaps and opportunities to implement Zero-Trust principles.

Why Symmetry Systems

Fine-Grained Data Visibility

Amplify your ability to know what data you have, where it is located, who or what has access to it, and what they are doing with it—and how—across your environments.

On-prem & cloud

Use Symmetry Systems’ DataGuard in any environment. We can do cloud, hybrid, and on-prem. Most DSPM solutions can only do cloud.

Identify Data Access and Activity

Drill down into unsafe data access behaviors, failed data access attempts, high-risk or destructive data operations, or dormant access roles.

Agentless scanning

Scan data across all cloud and data store types, including AWS, Azure, and GCP to track progress and understand your real-time data posture—without agents.

Risk Prioritization

Identify the controls, identities, and data most at risk or those that should be addressed with cross-enterprise priority scores.

Cloud Identity and Entitlement Management (CIEM)

Control identity, access, and privileges in the cloud with robust security tools, like least privilege permissions and data store access policies.

Accelerate Zero-Trust Adoption

Map out various user and group access levels, and make recommendations to fill gaps in security.

Reduce Supply Chain Risk

Maintain control of your data with customer-native, deployments, so nothing leaves your environments.

Symmetry Systems Data Visualization

Ensure that only the right users and technologies have the right access to the right data, and that authentication for those users is in line with Zero-Trust requirements.

Symmetry Systems Data Visualization

Enforce consistent security policies, regardless of where the data is, how it is used, or who is accessing it.

Symmetry Systems Data Visualization

Safely and securely transition your organization to take advantage of cloud and other on-demand computing resources without sacrificing visibility and control.

Gartner Cool Vendor 2022 Logo

Symmetry Systems Recognized as Sample Vendor in July 2023 Hype Cycle™ for Data Security report

According to Gartner, “As data proliferates across the cloud, organizations must identify privacy and security risks with a single product. DSPM will transform how they identify business risks that result from data residency, privacy, and security risks. Risks multiply because data locations and content are unknown, undiscovered or unidentified.”1

Symmetry Systems Data Visualization

Assess Data Risk

Step 1

Most Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) tools focus on CVEs or container scans, but miss your most valuable persistent asset—the data. Data Security Posture Management starts with a true understanding of your risk exposure, regardless of where and how it’s accessed.

Enforce Zero-Trust Controls Around Data

Step 2

Zero-Trust (ZT) security initiatives today harden identities and the network, but can still leave data unprotected. Measuring data objects’ risk via permissions and access and placing controls/remediation brings ZT to data access.

Abstract data visualization points

Automate Security and Compliance

Step 3

Prove to auditors and yourself that every identity with access to all business-critical and sensitive data is tightly controlled, monitored, and audit-logged in tamper-proof storage.
