Control Data sprawl and Secure Data

Organizations need solutions to strengthen their data security ‌and data privacy protection capabilities. This is especially important as the volume of data collected by businesses increases exponentially year by year and as the regulatory environment becomes more and more complex. Investing in data security programs with embedded compliance is essential to meet the myriad of compliance regulations and industry standards and help to achieve growth, all while continuing to serve as trusted partners to customers, vendors, and third-parties.

Establish Data-Focused—Not Configuration-Checklist—Governance

Too many organizations are still answering the compliance question by demonstrating control application, but fail to provide evidence of data security. And, since protection of data is the ultimate outcome, it makes sense to gather evidence at the data-level.
