Critical data protection

Ensuring protection of sensitive data is critically important for both brand reputation and compliance with regulations. Keeping sensitive and critical data out of the hands of cyber criminals is the first step, but data protection also requires knowing what data is being used within your organization, who is accessing it, and how it moves across the organization.

Organizations spend a tremendous amount of time and effort to protect critical data in known locations. But they also need to track data moving across the network to ensure critical or sensitive data doesn't end up in unauthorized hands.
