Data security is important. Data-centric security is really important. It’s a fundamental shift in how to best protect sensitive data in any organization – by protecting the data itself. The latest Gartner Market Guide for Data-Centric Audit and Protection (DCAP) is a great reference to understand the market and world forces that are forcing change. It explains the fundamental shift in data security, away from single-purpose point solutions to a unified approach, wherein data-centric security policy, data classification, data discovery, and authentication are integrated and coordinated across most or all data repositories or silos. If you haven’t read the Gartner market guide, it’s worth a look. At Protegrity, we’ve been unifying sensitive data security with DCAP capabilities across the enterprise and cloud for over 15 years and we’re dedicated to continuing to innovate as leaders in the space. The Gartner DCAP market guide rigorously goes through security across numerous data silos (databases, file storage, big data, Software-as-a-Service and Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and all the DCAP capabilities, evaluating how each representative vendor meets the criteria set forth.
