Gartner Market Guide

“By 2020, data-centric audit and protection products will replace disparate siloed data security tools in 40% of large enterprises, up from less than 5% today,” according to Gartner. “Security and risk management leaders must use data-centric audit and protection products to mitigate threats and compliance issues to critical data.”

“Protegrity welcomes its inclusion in the latest Gartner ‘Market Guide for Data-Centric Audit and Protection’,” said Suni Munshani, CEO of Protegrity. “Companies are breached daily even when they turn on every security feature across the separate products they use. Silo-based security is failing at an alarming rate because it doesn’t scale, is hard to implement across multiple silos, and offers inconsistent protection. That’s why organizations need to take a data-centric approach to data protection.”

The Protegrity Data Security Platform is designed with a modular deployment architecture and centralized controls. The Enterprise Security Administrator (ESA) provides central control of policy, key management, auditing and reporting. The policy created and maintained in ESA is deployed to points where data is secured with Protegrity’s data protectors and gateways that provide blanket protection in complex, heterogeneous environments, utilizing various data protection methods, including Protegrity Vaultless Tokenization (PVT), encryption and masking.
