Dataguise Aims to Prepare Users for GDPR Compliance Challenges with a Suite of Capabilities

Dataguise is preparing users for new data privacy requirements by offering a full range of data-centric auditing and protection capabilities.

Dataguise’s platform now includes simple monitoring and alerting, the ability to integrate policies across all data silos covered, data classification of structured and unstructured information, integrated data discovery of both structured and unstructured data, application user access control, data protection policy enforcement, and behavioral analytics to reduce both false positives and false negatives.

Dataguise DgSecure provides this functionality for sensitive data on premises and in the cloud, without requiring customers to write a single line of code.

GDPR, which was passed to strengthen and unify data protection for all individuals within the EU, requires organizations to take technical and organizational measures in the orchestration of industry-standard information security frameworks.

Organizations now have exactly 12 months to comply with the data privacy requirements of the GDPR, which applies to any company that controls or processes the personal data of European Union (EU) citizens—regardless of that company’s physical geographic location—and brings potential fines for non-compliance of up to €20 million or 4% of the violating company’s annual revenue, whichever is greater.

“It is critical that enterprises operating in the EU establish a comprehensive sensitive data governance approach to accelerate compliance with this new regulation,” said Manmeet Singh, CEO of Dataguise. “DgSecure is one of the few data security and compliance platforms capable of operating seamlessly across a broad range of IT environments on-premises and in the cloud. This flexibility allows individual business units, sharing a common data source, to set their own data access policies while maintaining centralized policy control and/or decentralized control with broad policy guidance from a central entity. The solution will play a critical role for global organizations determined to maintain the highest levels of GDPR compliance.”
