Egnyte Protect Platform Provides Unique and Effective Cloud-Based Approach to Data Classification and Security
Egynte, a player in the cloud enterprise content management space since 2007, has recently emerged as a multi-faceted Software as a Service (SaaS) offering, providing data classification and security options for businesses looking to identify, classify, and protect sensitive data.
The full Egnyte Platform emphasizes data classification, regulatory and compliance management, and data protection. Egnyte Protect is the most recent addition, building upon the established Egnyte Connect platform, which provides a single collaboration platform that pulls together the business’ full gamut of content as it moves throughout the organization.
Egnyte Protect provides users with the tools to embed data security seamlessly within current business operations. Core features from a security perspective include:
- Ability to identify malicious insiders
- Prevention of accidental data loss
- Mitigation of ransomware
Additionally, Egnyte Protect provides organizations with the necessary support to ensure all regulatory obligations are met, an increasingly integral feature due to the global advent of data privacy laws. Capabilities include:
- Inventorying and securing of sensitive data.
- Enforcement of data retention schedules.
- Alignment to data classification and retention schedules for data minimization best practices.
- Pre-built workflows that enable easy DSAR response procedures.
- Scanning of unstructured data repositories to ensure compliance with relevant regulations.
Egnyte’s SaaS platform provides a centralized, integrated view of the organization’s content, enabling a collaborative and security-focused environment.
Egnyte has taken its experience in content management and identified a gap that exists with respect to appropriate data security measures and controls. The Protect platform’s emphasis on supporting adequate data security throughout the six stages of the data lifecycle, is a logical next step for users already leveraging the Connect platform for data classification. Protect’s increased scrutiny on discovery and application of protection standards to sensitive personal data, provides organizations with the tools they need to stay on top of data privacy laws and compliance regulations.
Organizations seeking a streamlined solution for data classification as well as security of their data, should examine the Egnyte Platform for a cloud-based, automated approach to data classification and protection.
