Security, Compliance and Privacy

Address the challenges of data security, regulatory compliance and data privacy in the cloud.

It’s not easy to manage sensitive data in the cloud

The growing list of data privacy laws, such as GDPR and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), as well as the ongoing internal and external cyber threats, present continual challenges to ensure critical data is secure, that sensitive data is kept private, and regulatory compliance is met. Your cloud infrastructure should deliver the following benefits.



Detect risks and threats before they happen, and gain visibility into the sources of attacks.



Provide intuitive access to timely and actionable information.


Classification and categorization

Identify personal data and sensitive personal information.


Alerting and remediation

Know when you are under attack and have the tools to recover quickly.



Provide access to your data only to those who need it and prevent others from access.



Know who has accessed sensitive files and identify potential compliance policy risks.
