"The deadline for GDPR compliance has already passed, so now companies have to prove that they comply with all the requirements in order to avoid huge fines and loss of customer loyalty.

We are ready to meet the growing interest in DDC tools with a solution that empowers customers to gain a high-level view of what's going on with their sensitive data to improve the effectiveness of their security strategies, set security priorities and reduce cyber threats," said Steve Dickson, CEO of Netwrix.
