When building a cybersecurity program, I start with the methodology I have developed in my twenty plus years in the industry: Focus first on the data, then the systems that data lives on, and then the identities that have access to the data and those systems.
Crossbeam is the world's first and largest partner ecosystem platform which allows our customers to sync their CRM data and discover overlaps with their partners to drive revenue. One of our values is "Trust is our business." To build that trust, we must build a secure platform for our customers.
After evaluating several vendors, Crossbeam selected Symmetry Systems’ platform DataGuard to protect and safeguard our customers' data in a system that I describe as “Data Store Detection and Response.” DSDR is like Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) for our data. Symmetry DataGuard ensures security for data flows among our AWS accounts, SREs, contractors, supply-chain services, and internet-accessible services. Additionally, Symmetry automates complex parts of compliance reporting related to cloud permissions and access to protected data.
With Symmetry Systems’ managed offering, we have developed a close working relationship with the Symmetry team that operates as an extension of our own Cybersecurity & Trust team.

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.

Bluescape has chosen Symmetry DataGuard as a key security control to gain visibility and actionable intelligence on our customer database activities. DataGuard installs quickly, runs in the cloud, and provides Bluescape deep visibility into data related risks such as exploited web services and insider threats.
Moving forward, Bluescape is very excited about DataGuard being a key vendor as they support and further enhance our risk based and compliance programs.

“Protecting data at its source is critical to ensure our client environments remain secure. DataGuard gives us the ability to add an extra layer of data security with more granular control than what is provided by our application providers. The flexibility of both on-premise and cloud configurations gives us confidence that DataGuard can support our current and future application architectures.”
