Nightfall™ uses machine learning to identify business-critical data, like customer PII, across your SaaS, APIs, and data infrastructure, so you can manage & protect it.

Our deep learning-based classifiers are trained on massive volumes of data to yield high accuracy. Unlike traditional methods, Nightfall considers the context surrounding a given token in order to accurately classify it. This means Nightfall performs well on unstructured and ambiguous data, which is increasingly common in enterprises today. Nightfall parses and scans 100+ file types, including images, screenshots, compressed folders, PDFs, etc.

Nightfall does not store or track your sensitive data. Our classifications are fed into the Nightfall platform so you can review & remediate the findings, or leverage them in your own way via our REST API.

Discover, classify, and protect your sensitive data:

  • Discover: Integrate in minutes with cloud services via APIs to monitor data without agents.
  • Classify: Machine learning classifies your sensitive data & PII with high accuracy, so nothing gets missed.
  • Protect: Setup automated workflows for quarantines, deletions, alerts, and more - saving you time and keeping your business safe.

Join some of the world's leading enterprises who trust us to protect their mission-critical data.
