New solution offers an automated workflow to discover, protect and control your data using encryption and access controls
Thales has announced CipherTrust Intelligent Protection, a new solution that further simplifies operational complexity and boosts data security efforts with automated processes that discover, protect and control critical data anywhere, building on the success of the CipherTrust Data Security Platform.
Organisations can use CipherTrust Intelligent Protection to safeguard all sensitive information without the added cost and complexity of traditional data protection products and services. The new solution automatically protects at-risk data with encryption and robust access controls, once the sensitive data has been discovered and classified based on vulnerability and other risk profiles.
CipherTrust Intelligent Protection is a solution configuration within the Thales CipherTrust Data Security Platform that works together with CipherTrust Manager, CipherTrust Data Discovery and Classification, and CipherTrust Transparent Encryption –an all-in-one solution that delivers a unified approach. CipherTrust Intelligent Protection addresses the evolving challenges of regulatory compliance by facilitating accelerated time to compliance with automatic data protection controls. It also offers easy-to-use, pre-programmed tools to quickly and effectively secure unstructured sensitive data on-premises and in the cloud.
Thales’s 2021 Data Threat Report found that the use of cloud-based infrastructure exposes new risks as an organisation’s data footprint expands and raises concerns about operational complexity. Less than a quarter (24%) of respondents said they have complete knowledge of where their data is stored. Configurable policies with built-in templates to rapidly discover and classify unstructured sensitive data can be used to protect data on-premises and in the cloud.
Todd Moore, VP Encryption Products at Thales, said, “Increased operational complexity demands simplified security procedures, and CipherTrust Intelligent Protection makes it significantly easier for companies to safeguard data proactively based on known vulnerabilities and data privacy regulations, which reduces overall business risk. Intelligent Protection provides the automation so customers can confidently take data security measures into their own hands with an all-in-one solution.”
Data privacy laws and regulations are never static – new ones appear regularly and existing ones often get enhanced, making it difficult for you to keep pace. An integrated and automated solution helps eliminate blind spots and human error, making a considerable difference in complying with various regulations.
Finding a way to rapidly identify data compliance gaps and potential security risks is of paramount importance. Using the high performance and accurate discovery engine is an extremely useful way to find data subject to regulations that organizations may not realize even exists. CipherTrust Data Discovery and Classification provides risk-based guidance on what specific data to encrypt. Linking this discovery process to CipherTrust Transparent Encryption provides organizations with a fast track to automatically uncover and close security gaps.
