AvePoint's Compliance Guardian Now Combines Risk Management, Data Classification and Protection Solutions


New components align security, privacy and IT professionals to mitigate security risks and achieve regulatory compliance for GDPR, ISO and more.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (PRWEB) June 07, 2018

AvePoint, a leader in data classification and protection solutions, announced today it has added components to its Compliance Guardian platform to create a comprehensive software solution with data discovery, mapping, classification, governance, and disposition capabilities through an enterprise risk management system.

Compliance Guardian is used by customers such as United Airlines and Texas Health Resources to discover and protect structured and unstructured data on-premise and in the cloud to proactively neutralize privacy, security and compliance violations.

60% of Organizations Unaware of Sensitive Content Within Data or How It's Used

With the exponential explosion of data being created through multiple communication systems, one of the top privacy, security and compliance challenges for organizations today is to understand where their data lives and how it moves through their organization.

This year's report, "Organisational Readiness for the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)," by AvePoint and the Centre for Information Policy Leadership (CIPL) revealed that 60 percent of respondents were unaware about the sensitive and confidential content within their data, and how it's used or treated.

New Enterprise Risk Management Component

Compliance Guardian now makes it easier for companies to understand their risk and how data moves through their organization. The platform features three components that can be purchased separately or as part of a cohesive security, privacy and compliance platform:

  • Enterprise Risk Management (ERM): Build and manage an enterprise wide risk management strategy adressing data inventories, data maps, security risk and data protection impact assessments, and implement Corrective and Preventative Actions (CAPA) controls. Schedule discovery as often as every 15 minutes to gain insight into at-risk conent or controls, to include sensitive data such as PII (personally identifiable information).
  • Data Validation and Classification (DVC): Scan, tag and classify data wherever it lives, in real time and on a schedule: file shares, Dropbox, Box, Slack, Office 365, SharePoint, databases and more. Establish data classifications, enterprise metadata schemas, and automate retention tags for records management and purpose limitations.
  • Data Protection and Incident Management (DPIM): Protect the brand and information by defining and automating data protection policies. Move, block, quarantine, redact, pseudonymize, and encypt data for full implementation of security controls to mitigate risk. Integrate with information management policies for extensive data protection. Send violations to assigned personnel in real-time: content creators, owners, compliance and legal teams, or specific user groups.

"Data is fueling our digital economy, and provides complex risks if managed improperly," said Dana Simberkoff, Chief Risk, Privacy, and Information Security Officer at AvePoint. "Our solution has the versatility to meet enterprises and SMBs where they are to achieve their data protection and regulatory compliance goals."

Compliance Guardian Supports and Accelerates GDPR Compliance

Compliance Guardian continues to address global regulations related to enterprise data use and retention, such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The platform has the capability to directly address eight GPDR articles, including data subject access requests (DSAR), data privacy impact assessment (DPIAs), the right to be forgotten and more.
