Nightfall AI: The First AI-Native Enterprise DLP Platform

Legacy DLP solutions never worked. They're point solutions that generate an overwhelming number of false positive alerts, and block the business in the process. But no longer. Enter: Nightfall AI, the first AI-native enterprise DLP platform that protects sensitive data across SaaS, generative AI (GenAI), email, and endpoints, all from the convenience of a unified console.

Nightfall named a "Data Security Solution of the Year"

We’re thrilled to announce that Nightfall was selected as the “Data Security Solution of the Year” in the 2024 Data Breakthrough Awards. With enterprises scrambling to stay on the cutting edge of innovation, it’s all too easy to lose sight of data stewardship. In addition to SaaS apps, email, and endpoints, now enterprises must also safeguard their generative AI (GenAI) applications, including both custom and third-party GenAI tools.

What is Policy Orchestration?

As an organization’s data volume grows, so does the need to manage its access and governance consistently and securely. The proliferation of vast and siloed data spread across diverse applications, multi-cloud and hybrid environments, and formats over the last few decades has made it difficult to control data access and governance. In order for structured data to be effectively utilized, it needs to be combined and enhanced in a way that supports both operational and analytical tasks.

The Definitive Guide to Endpoint Data Loss Prevention

Backup and recovery solutions, anti-malware tools, data encryption tools, and network security tools—how much protection is really enough to prevent endpoint data loss? In this article, we’ll go over everything you need to know about endpoint data loss prevention, including the types of DLP, specific activities you can monitor, how endpoint DLP software can help, and more.

10 Data Security Best Practices: Simple Methods to Protect Your Data

Data security is more important than ever because of an expanding cyber attack surface, frequent supply chain attacks, and evolving AI threats. The global average cost of a data breach reached an all-time high of $4.45 million in 2023, according to the 2023 Cost of a Data Breach Report by IBM Security. In this article, you’ll discover the main data security strategies and 10 methods of protecting data that apply to most industries.

Data Exfiltration: Risks, Detection & Prevention Strategies

Companies today face a wide range of potential threats to digital security. From cyber attacks with malicious intent to internal threats from negligent employees, IT and security teams face remarkable challenges in the modern enterprise environment. Add to the equation that many companies now operate under a hybrid model in which some employees may use personal devices for work purposes, and it’s exceedingly complicated to establish ironclad security policies and incident response plans.

Cloud computing - The first step to an effective data modernisation strategy

Many organisations realise the benefits that lie within the data they collect daily. This modern approach to data empowers businesses to leverage data for innovation and monetization while at the same time enhancing security and privacy. While this may seem like a conundrum as companies have traditionally buried their data deep into IT architecture to prevent it from being accessible, even by the employees, today it is possible to have the best of both. This process starts with the cloud.

Securing AI with Least Privilege

In the rapidly evolving AI landscape, the principle of least privilege is a crucial security and compliance consideration. Least privilege dictates that any entity—user or system—should have only the minimum level of access permissions necessary to perform its intended functions. This principle is especially vital when it comes to AI models, as it applies to both the training and inference phases.

How Product Security Helps To Protect Your Data at Egnyte

One of the critical challenges for organizations today is securing their data. Organizations must incur the cost associated with proper design, development, and maintenance of systems and their appropriate safeguarding and monitoring. One way to reduce and optimize these costs is to choose tools that operate in a Software-as-a-Service model. Choosing tools in such a model helps shift some of the responsibilities and costs to the vendor.
