Data protection solutions, and in particular, Data Security Posture Management (DSPM) platforms, should be built to effectively map, monitor, and protect your organization’s most valuable asset — your data. But not all cloud data security and compliance tools offer the same advantages, and not all will be suitable for your business’s unique data requirements.

In today’s global data economy ecosystem, businesses gather and store an abundance of sensitive information about individuals inside their IT environments. Carelessness in protecting this sensitive data often exposes it to increased data breach risks, the costs of which have climbed to $4.24 million per breach, according to the most recent figures. A data breach is distinct from data exposure.

Abraham Lincoln once said, “If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I'd spend the first six of them sharpening my ax.” So what has that to do with automated data compliance? $575 Million (and potentially up to $700) in fines and compensations! That is what Equifax Inc. has agreed to pay as part of a global settlement after failing to take reasonable steps to secure its network, leading to the 2017 data breach.

A famous quote attributed to bank robber Willie “the Actor” Sutton states: “I rob banks because that’s where the money is.” Well, in recent years, as more of our data migrates to the cloud, crime follows. According to a recent report by intelligence firm IDC, 98% of the companies surveyed had experienced at least one cloud data breach 18 months prior to the study.

Making money is the ultimate goal of any corporation but not losing money is just as important. According to IBM, the average cost of a data breach is $4.24M, a substantial impact on your bottom line. And according to Gartner, by 2025, 60% of organizations will use cybersecurity risk assessment as the primary factor in choosing business partners. You cannot go any further without adequate cybersecurity solutions.

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is one of the long-standing and more traditional approaches to securing enterprise data. It can be either network or endpoint-based, each having their own unique benefits and challenges. DLP technologies have traditionally been prone to false positives, and as such, some of their best use-cases are for controlling very predictable and structured content in very specific situations.

In a security landscape defined by regular high-profile breaches compromising individual data - states, countries, and economic unions introduced laws aiming to give people more control over what businesses do with their data. A pressing security concern for CISOs, IT security, and compliance teams is ensuring that their organization doesn’t breach any rules from the increasing number of regulations protecting people’s data.

Data loss can result from a variety of vulnerabilities that are common in data storage systems. Because of their prevalence, these vulnerabilities can cause widespread data loss if not properly addressed. According to IBM, the average cost of a data breach for US-based companies is approximately $8.6 million. In addition to this, it could take more than nine months to identify that a data breach has occurred.

Sensitive data is any data that contains sensitive information. This data must be kept safe without being accessible to anyone unless they have explicit authorization to access the data. Moreover, preventing data breaches and protecting sensitive data has become one of the highest priorities in any organization. This need has been further exemplified by increased regulatory scrutiny over data collection, storage, and security in businesses.

Data security is, and always has been, one of the core pillars upon which we've built Polar Security – and we know how equally important it is to our customers. This is why we're excited to announce that we are now compliant with the System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type II standard for security, availability, and confidentiality.

Polar is the first solution to automate cloud data security & compliance - wherever your sensitive data is, however fast developers create it.

Polar’s agentless DSPM (Data Security Posture Management) platform automatically finds where your data stores are, what sensitive data is inside, and where the data is moving, to find data vulnerabilities and compliance violations.

Do you know where your sensitive data is and where it can go?

  • Discover managed, unmanaged & shadow data: Automatically detect all shadow & cloud-native data stores continuously created by R&D. See a complete inventory of your data stores.
  • Classify sensitive data: Automate data labeling & manual tasks to continuously highlight valuable & sensitive data stores at scale.
  • Map data flows: Map, follow and differentiate your potential and actual data flows to prevent sensitive data leakage and compliance violations.
  • Prevent data-at-risk: Automate enforcement of pre-emptive security & compliance controls. Receive actionable insights & recommendations to mitigate costly escalation of violations.
