Protect critical data

Data provides a critical foundation for every operation of your organization. Protecting and using it securely is central to a zero trust strategy.

Unfortunately, cybercriminals also see the value of data and seek to exploit security vulnerabilities to put your information at risk. Data security solutions, whether on premises or in hybrid cloud environments, help you gain greater visibility and insights to investigate and remediate threats, and enforce real-time controls and compliance.


Discover data security vulnerabilities in real time Does your security team know where your critical data resides and who has access to it? The key steps in protecting sensitive data include automating visibility, controlling access policies and implementing ongoing monitoring to discover vulnerabilities and risks before they become breaches. Protect critical data with secure solutions What valuable data is at risk in organizations like yours? Personally identifiable information, personal health information, payment card information, intellectual property and more. An integrated suite of capabilities can tackle cybersecurity gaps in on-premises or hybrid cloud deployments. Help simplify regulatory compliance Addressing the growing number of privacy mandates is difficult enough; keeping up with reporting can be another hardship for your team. Simplify the process with automation, analytics and activity monitoring.
