MIGRATING TO THE CLOUD WITH SENSITIVE DATA

OVERVIEW

Cloud migration can be a risky prospect for any company. For one that handles sensitive data — whether personal, financial, or health-related data — it’s usually either a major undertaking or an outright impossibility.

With Dataguise, cloud migration is simpler and safer.

Wherever you are on your cloud migration journey, only Dataguise can give you the visibility and control you need to keep sensitive data safe. Our simple, powerful solution for sensitive data governance delivers a unique combination of detection, protection, and monitoring capabilities that is unmatched in the industry.

Before Cloud Migration: Governing Sensitive Data on Premises

Dataguise helps you get cloud-ready by finding sensitive data in all your on-premises data repositories and then protecting it via masking or encryption. Dataguise can mask and encrypt data directly or be integrated with a third-party solution you may already have in place. You can install Dataguise either on the data source or on a remote/cloud machine that is pointed to the data source. Sensitive data detection and protection is performed based on PII, PCI, HIPAA, or any other custom policies defined by your organization.

Dataguise provides comprehensive, visual reports and dashboards showing you precisely what sensitive data you have, where it is located, and whether or not it is being masked or encrypted. With this complete audit of your data, you’ll be able to migrate to the cloud knowing your exact risk and compliance positions.

For any data you keep on premises, Dataguise can continue to detect, protect, and monitor sensitive data in real time on a continuous basis.

After Cloud Migration: Governing Sensitive Data in the Cloud

Once all sensitive data on premises has been detected and protected, you can move your data sets to the cloud with complete confidence and accountability. As with data on premises, after cloud migration is complete you’ll get comprehensive, visual reports and dashboards showing you precisely what sensitive data you have, where it is located, and whether or not it is being masked or encrypted. Dataguise will continue to detect, protect, and monitor sensitive data in the cloud per your enterprise policies.

Dataguise can also help you detect and protect sensitive data in data repositories that already exist in the cloud to eliminate any compliance or privacy issues. You can install Dataguise on premises and point it to data repositories in the cloud, or you can easily spin up a Dataguise instance from a cloud marketplace, such as the Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure marketplaces.
