Dataguise Announces Complete Sensitive Data Governance Powered by DgSecure

A recent press release reports, “Dataguise, a leader in sensitive data governance, today highlighted the company’s unique approach to addressing the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance challenges, as well as its inclusion in a recent report by Gartner titled, Market Guide for Data-Centric Audit and Protection. Organizations now have exactly 12 months to comply with the data privacy requirements of the GDPR, which applies to any company that controls or processes the personal data of European Union (EU) citizens — regardless of that company’s physical geographic location — and brings potential fines for non-compliance of up to EUR 20 million or 4% of the violating company’s annual revenue, whichever is greater.”

The release goes on, “In the recent report by Gartner, the firm states, ‘Data-centric audit and protection (DCAP) vendors are rapidly adding capabilities organically and through acquisition, especially in response to increased data thefts and rapidly changing compliance landscape (such as the new General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] for Europe, due in 2018). Only a few vendors have already achieved broad coverage both on-premises and in the cloud’.”

It continues, “In the Market Guide, Dataguise was included among many as a Representative Vendor with capabilities to support GDPR initiatives, but was the only vendor listed as providing a full range of data-centric auditing and protection capabilities. According to Gartner, this includes simple monitoring and alerting, the ability to integrate policies across all data silos covered, data classification of structured and unstructured information, integrated data discovery of both structured and unstructured data, application user access control, data protection policy enforcement, and behavioral analytics to reduce both false positives and false negatives. The report provides a number of market recommendations to help in the selection of the appropriate data governance solution in supporting organizational needs.”
