Safeguarding business-critical and regulated data like customer records, financial information and intellectual property is critical to the success of the entire organization. However, your goal should not be to build a fortress. Rather accept that your network will inevitably be breached from the outside and attacked from within, so you should build a layered defense strategy that helps you both minimize your attack surface and spot suspicious behavior in time to respond effectively.

In today's digital world, the problem of data theft by departing employees goes far beyond stealing the names of a few customers or a product design sketch; it can mean the loss of gigabytes of critical corporate intelligence and legally protected information like customer cardholder data. Plus, ex-employees have even more avenues for using the data they steal - they can use it against their former employers, leak it to competitors, sell it to the highest bidder or simply publish it on the internet.

Although most IT pros are aware of the benefits that technology integrations promise, many of them are reluctant to take on integration projects. They know all too well that many vendor products simply aren't designed to be integrated with other systems; the lack of an application programming interface in particular is a huge red flag. Fortunately, there are vendors, such as ServiceNow and Netwrix, that enable organizations to reap the benefits of integration without having to invest lots of time and money.

It's hard to imagine an organization today that does not rely on file servers, SharePoint or Office 365 for storing data, including valuable and sensitive information such as intellectual property and personal data. This makes these systems particularly attractive targets for all sort of attackers, from external hackers to disgruntled employees. To protect data from both external and internal threats, businesses must regularly conduct thorough data security assessments as part of their broader cyber security assessments.

Compliance regulations are designed to provide a unified set of rules or guidelines to help IT organizations implement policies and measures that deliver the required levels of integrity, security, availability and accountability of data and operations. This white paper provides an overview of various types of IT compliance, explores their basic concepts and commonalities, and offers guidelines for implementation.

Orchestrate IT security with your data at its core. Netwrix solutions empower you to identify and classify sensitive information with utmost precision; reduce your exposure to risk and detect threats in time to avoid data breaches; and achieve and prove compliance.

Data Security Done Right:

  • Consistency in the Approach. Confidence in the Results. Ensure your cybersecurity efforts are laser-focused on truly important data, instead of false positives that do not require protection. Our unified platform identifies and classifies your sensitive, regulated or mission-critical information consistently and accurately — including both structured and unstructured data, whether it’s on premises or in the cloud.
  • Reduce Risk. Prevent Breaches. Do you know if the sensitive data you store is overexposed? Who can access it? What activity is going on around it? Netwrix solutions help you answer these key questions and ensure that risk-appropriate security controls are implemented around your most critical data. Plus, the platform enables you to detect abnormal activity early and respond before a threat turns into a breach.
  • Achieve Compliance. Deliver Hard Evidence. Assess the effectiveness of the data security controls across your entire infrastructure so you can remediate any flaws before auditors come to call. Get the hard evidence you need to demonstrate to auditors that your controls adhere to their regulations and quickly answer any ad-hoc questions.

Data Centric. Laser Focused.
