Protegrity Insight™ for Discovery Helps Businesses Jump Start Data Protection and Minimize Risk


a leading provider of data-centric enterprise data security solutions,
today announced Protegrity
Insight™ for Discovery
, an always available, purpose-built data
discovery, classification and analysis tool to help organizations assess
and understand their risk exposure by showing where their sensitive data
resides; analyze and address critical compliance metrics; and protect
their data at rest, in transit or in use across the enterprise and in
the cloud.

Protegrity Insight for Discovery addresses several shortcomings of other
data discovery and classification tools on the market today, including
lacking adequate insights to help prioritize necessary actions and
producing too many false positives that drain IT resources and budgets.

Security teams can jump start a data protection project by letting
Protegrity Insight for Discovery automatically identify sensitive data
wherever it exists in an organization. It does this by going through the
targeted data sources and opening as many items as possible to discover
sensitive data. Using patent pending technology, the tool examines each
opened data item to associate proper classifications (tags, labels, data
element types, etc.). Positive results are stored in a metadata
repository and given a confidence score that is then fed into a user
interface that provides an easy to understand dashboard with accurate
metrics and scorecards for a given source, across multiple sources, or
across locations from on-premise to the cloud.

When Protegrity Insight for Discovery is integrated with the full suite
of Protegrity
data security solutions
, security teams can then create and
propagate the proper data protection policies and techniques across
applications, data warehouses, mainframes, big data repositories and the
cloud. By continuously measuring and assessing exposures, gaps, and
policy violations, organizations will be able to drive more timely
actions and improve their security posture by virtue of having less
sensitive data residing in the clear.

"Organizations that do not know where their sensitive data resides find
it hard to prioritize data security and privacy risks, and regulatory
goals, and thus struggle with where to start compliance and data
security projects," said Dominic Sartorio, Protegrity's Senior Vice
President of Products & Development. "Discovery, classification, and
analysis of sensitive information enables organizations to quickly and
confidently jumpstart data-centric projects, including GDPR, PCI and
HIPAA compliance."

Protegrity Insight for Discovery was piloted within several
organizations, including one of the world's largest e-commerce
retailers, one of the largest U.S.-based healthcare providers, and a
well-known provider of commercial data, analytics and insights for

"Protegrity Insight for Discovery was installed, up and running,
scanning database tables, and finding sensitive information very
quickly. It's ability to refine the way sensitive information is
uncovered allowed us to easily adapt Insight to our data and increase
accuracy of the discovery process," said a pilot customer from a major
U.S.-based insurance provider.

Protegrity Insight for Discovery, along with all Protegrity software
solutions, is available within Protegrity
, the industry's first all-in subscription solution launched
earlier this year that bundles the company's software, support and
consulting services into flexible tiers based on how much sensitive data
is protected. For a limited time Protegrity Insight for Discovery is
also available as part of a complimentary
30-day trial
