Hybrid-Cloud Security Starts with Data

DataGuard helps you protect what matters.

Using Symmetry DataGuard, cloud-security teams tighten IAM policies around data, incident response teams know precisely what data objects are involved in a breach, and governance teams audit every access across every data store.

Data Security Posture Management

Most security and compliance problems are about data flows — from sensitive data objects to risky identities.


Cloud mis-configuration.
Did an external account write malicious data into a datastore? Can contractors and vendor identities access customer data in the clear?

Least-privilege IAM policies. My organization has a complex web of IAM policies — what data is at risk from service roles used by vendors, contractors, CI/CD tools, internet-facing applications?

OWASP attacks on applications and APIs.
A bug-bounty finds a critical CVE. Which specific data objects may have been breached — which specific users should be notified of a breach?

Credential theft or Account take-over.
What data objects were stolen using an identity? How can I reduce the blast radius with data-centric IAM policies?

Zero-trust applies risk-based controls and multiple-factor authentication to identities.

Symmetry Systems brings Zero Trust principles to data.

Give your security team real visibility with DataGuard


One hour is all you need to install DataGuard as a sealed, read-only service in your cloud.

Builds a deep graph of data objects,  identities, and all permissions and  actions from identities to data objects.

Unifies permissions and actions across AWS, GCP, Azure, and on-premise Deployments.

Graph analysis and machine-learning to power detection-response, compliance and IAM remediation.

“We believe Symmetry Systems has an innovative, modern approach to data security that our clients will benefit from. Data is the backbone of any organization, and it is more important than ever as businesses continue to move workloads to the cloud that they have data stored securely with visibility into where it is stored. Offering unified visibility across hybrid cloud environments is a top priority for Accenture in helping our clients minimize risk with a solution that has security built in from the start.”

3 Steps to hybrid-cloud security

Start with a Data Risk Assessment

Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) tools focus on CVEs and container scans and miss your valuable persistent asset — data.

Place Zero-Trust controls around data

Zero-Trust (ZT) security today hardens identities and the network (ZTNA). Measuring data objects’ risk via permissions and accesses and placing controls/remediation brings ZT to data access. 

Automate SOC2 and privacy assessments for cloud assets

Compliance requires that you prove to auditors that every access to all sensitive data has tight access controls, is monitored, and is audit-logged in tamper-proof storage.

“Seven Bridges is a leading biomedical data analytics company, focused on genomic precision medicine, and uses Symmetry DataGuard to secure genomic and clinical data on the cloud.Symmetry’s key innovation is to map out data risk from dormant data and IAM permissions, as well as analyze data flows across our dynamic AWS environment. We found DataGuard a highly effective tool to collaborate with our devOps team, and are placing data firewall policies into code that enable stronger data security and help with achievement of our compliance audits.”
