According to a recent press release, “Baffle Inc., an advanced data protection company, today released Baffle Data Masking and Exfiltration Control, the only masking and exfiltration solution that ties access control and usage to data-centric encryption, providing an end-to-end data protection solution. In addition to Baffle’s patented data protection that protects data in memory and in use while allowing operations on encrypted data, Baffle Data Masking and Exfiltration Control extends access control capabilities to protect data as it leaves an organization and creates a simple way for businesses to responsibly share data with third parties. Baffle Data Masking and Exfiltration Control is available today. The solution is sold as an enhancement to Baffle’s Advanced Data Protection.”
The release continues, “According to a 2018 Opus/Ponemon Institute study of 1,000 CISOs and risk professionals in the U.S. and UK, companies share confidential information with, on average, 583 third parties. Approximately 59 percent of companies say they have experienced a data breach caused by one of their vendors or third parties over that year. Baffle Data Masking and Exfiltration Control includes two features to protect businesses from common threat scenarios: (1) Data Masking: Without modifying applications, businesses can mask and protect data in test and development environments, and when sharing data extracts with third parties across the supply chain. This minimizes risks during data breaches with massive data exfiltration. (2) Dynamic Data Entitlements: Businesses can set policies that limit access to highly sensitive data, such as a human resources or customer database, based on user or organization identity to ensure data privacy and minimize the risk of data leakage.”
