Operationalizing Data Security

We all understand the importance of protecting data, but at the same time, our businesses are more dependent on data than ever, and speed is everything. Companies can't afford to slow down, but they also can't afford to NOT prioritize security.

To add to that, teams that are involved with protecting data operate in silos. The fact that there's minimal context shared creates a variety of problems:

  • slow and manual processes,
  • false positives,
  • intrusive solutions that don't get adoption, and
  • false attestations.

Dasera is solving these problems by providing organizations with a continuous context layer that allows them to build security and compliance into their workflows and detect risk earlier. Dasera gives you a complete picture of your infrastructure and continuously understands every moving aspect of your data lifecycle.

Once you have that context, you need to be able to detect risks or operations to improve data hygiene at the earliest stage possible with minimal human intervention. Then it's critical to deliver that feedback to the appropriate stakeholders through their preferred channels so you can unify teams and ensure adoption.

Dasera works by connecting to the cloud infrastructure to keep a real-time inventory of every database that gets spun up anywhere in the world across any of your cloud providers. Then Dasera connects to the data stores themselves to understand the contents, the schemas, the privileges, the usage of the data, and the sensitivity.

Dasera also connects to identity services to understand who your data users are, their job functions, and where they sit geographically. Dasera also connects data infrastructure, i.e., data catalogs, to understand who owns those data assets.

That data is streamed into Dasera's core platform, where it's correlated, enriched, classified, and tagged. It allows us to deliver near real-time views across data maps or answer common questions like, "who has access to my sensitive data?"

unlocking context for orchestration and automation slide_cropped

Aside from context and risk awareness, we can automate and orchestrate responses and alerts to get feedback from the right stakeholder through their preferred mechanisms. So if there's a security risk, we can get it to your SOC or your SIEM. If there's an action that the data team needs to take, we can get them a Jira ticket. And if it's an automated update that we need to push to your data catalog, we'll push the update.

Dasera will partner with you to detect risk earlier and improve collaboration among typically siloed teams, move from inspection to prevention, and help your business consume data more freely.
