Protegrity Recognized as Representative Vendor in Gartner’s Market Guide for Data-Centric Audit and Protection

Protegrity identified as a vendor operating across all five data silos and offering solutions in all five DCAP capabilities profiled in the report

STAMFORD, CT – January 13, 2016 – Protegrity, the leading provider of data-centric enterprise data security solutions, announced that it has been identified as a representative vendor in the Gartner “Market Guide for Data-Centric Audit and Protection” report.1

Gartner identified Protegrity as a vendor operating across all five data silos (database, files, Big Data, Software-as-a-Service and Infrastructure-as-a-Service) and offering solutions in all five DCAP capabilities profiled in the report (integrates policies across multiple silos, data classification is integrated, integrated data discovery across silos, application layer PAM, and data protection policy integration).

By 2018, data-centric audit and protection products will replace disparate siloed data security tools in 25 percent of large enterprises, up from less than 2 percent today,” according to Gartner. “Organizations that have not developed data security governance to apply consistent policies and security controls across data silos need to act.

“Protegrity is proud to be included in the latest Gartner ‘Market Guide for Data-Centric Audit and Protection’ report,” said Suni Munshani, CEO of Protegrity. “Companies are using data to improve operations, create markets, better service customers, and transform existing business models, but they can only do so successfully if they protect their sensitive data across the enterprise whether on premise, in the cloud, and anywhere in between.”

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.
