A recent press release reports, “BigID Inc., a leader in personal data protection and privacy, and Ionic Security Inc., a pioneer of high-assurance data trust, today announced a partnership to enable organizations to automate policy enforcement and auditability driven by data intelligence. The partnership removes barriers to cloud adoption for organizations struggling with compliance, allowing them to take a consolidated and granular approach to protecting sensitive data by integrating BigID discovery and classification with the Ionic Data Trust Platform’s real-time policy management. Together, BigID and Ionic provide an automated, accurate, and scalable solution that identifies, classifies, and enforces data control policies over sensitive personal information and other critical data. This reduces the risk of unauthorized access and ensures compliance with the growing body of data privacy and protection laws and regulations.”
The release goes on, “Business opportunities—in conjunction with infrastructure and operational costs—drive the investment in cloud technologies and multi-cloud IT strategies, yet many organizations struggle to reduce risk by properly identifying sensitive data, applying appropriate policy, and enforcing the necessary security and access controls when migrating workloads to cloud storage, or pursuing multi-cloud strategies. Key data privacy regulations such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) expand the impact of those risks and the scope of data that must be protected.”
