The Freedom to Do More With Cloud Data

Despite the increase in cloud adoption, many organizations are still hesitant to move their confidential and highly sensitive data to the cloud. It’s not uncommon for companies to have concerns about being able to maintain the privacy, integrity, and security of their data when they migrate to the cloud or leverage cloud services. This is especially true for organizations that operate in highly regulated industries, such as healthcare, financial services, insurance, and the public sector.  

For most enterprises, the potential repercussions of sensitive data being breached or compromised in any manner can be significant and have considerable implications with regard to customer trust. This has often compelled many organizations to leave their sensitive data and workloads on-premises. However, by doing so, companies miss out on the benefits of cloud scale and agility, not to mention the cutting-edge compute capabilities that the public cloud offers.

Data contains vast opportunities to enhance customer experiences, drive new revenue streams, and foster innovation. However, many of these opportunities go untapped, underutilized, or sometimes even unnoticed when this data remains completely in an on-premises environment.

Protegrity + AWS

At Protegrity, we've seen a significant need and demand in the market for data protection capabilities that enable organizations to take advantage of the public cloud and do more with their cloud data. This is one of the main reasons that led us to team up with Amazon Web Services (AWS), the most comprehensive and broadly adopted cloud platform. We saw that many of our customers used AWS and sought ways to further enhance security and protection for their sensitive data while using cloud services. We wanted to empower customers to leverage the capabilities of the cloud while also maintaining the peace of mind that their data can be just as protected on the cloud as it is in their on-premises environment. Hence, we became an AWS Partner.

With Protegrity, organizations are equipped with advanced data protection capabilities that enable them to secure sensitive, mission-critical enterprise data on the cloud to unlock opportunities for innovation, growth, and meaningful business transformation. Protegrity helps strengthen data protection via tokenization, encryption, granular access controls, dynamic data masking, and anonymization. All of these data protection capabilities are applicable across any workload, application, or location.  

This means that organizations that have data spread across on-premises, hybrid, and cloud environments—even across multiple clouds—can maintain the same access controls and level of protection for their data across their entire environment, regardless of how complex their data ecosystem might be. With this added layer of data protection, enterprises can do more with their cloud data.  

How Protegrity Methods Protect Cloud Environments

Enhanced data protection capabilities enable data to be utilized for opportunities that truly move your business forward—from advanced analytics to fraud prevention to artificial intelligence (AI) programs. It also enables data to be freely shared with third-party vendors without compromising data security. For example, with advanced data protection, sensitive customer data can be securely shared with outside vendors to attain in-depth data insights or drive personalization programs. Added data protection capabilities also enable data to be freely used to drive advancements in digital transformation and accelerate enterprise innovation.

As an AWS Partner, Protegrity works with, supports, and provides added data protection for a number of AWS products, including Amazon Redshift, Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Athena, Amazon Kinesis, Cloud Protect API, AWS Lambda, and more.

AWS offers more than 200 fully featured services including AI and machine learning (ML), data warehousing, advanced analytics, storage, cloud-native services, and much more. With Protegrity, enterprises can fully leverage the breadth and scope of cloud capabilities from AWS with even greater assurance that even the most confidential and sensitive data has the same level of protection on the cloud as it does in an on-premises environment.  

What's Next

Our partnership with AWS is continually evolving and expanding to include deeper integrations and support for additional AWS offerings. In addition, we’re committed to providing educational resources to help empower enterprises to strengthen their cloud data security posture. We work with AWS to publish regular blogs to provide actionable best practices on the many ways organizations can enhance and fortify the security of their data on the cloud.  

We're also working with AWS on upcoming virtual Immersion Day events in which we'll be showcasing immersive, behind-the-scenes demonstrations of how our solutions work with AWS products. But you don’t have to wait for an upcoming event to get an interactive look at how our product works. If you'd like to see how our data protection solutions help strengthen the privacy, security, and integrity of cloud data, we invite you to schedule a demo with one of our team members or learn more about our AWS partnership.  

If you are a current AWS customer and are looking to enhance protection for your data, you can sign up for our solutions via the AWS Marketplace.
