Protegrity Adds New Data Protection Platform Features

Protegrity | March 15, 2022

Protegrity, a pioneer in data-centric security, recently launched version 9.0 of the Protegrity Data Protection Platform, which includes enhanced security and data-sharing capabilities to help organizations unleash the full potential of their data in increasingly complex technological contexts. Companies compete on data results, but data security and privacy concerns frequently hinder their ability to compete. New data anonymization features for delivering privacy-enhanced datasets for AI/ML and unified data security for multi-cloud settings to expedite innovation are among the platform upgrades.

With support for leading cloud vendors such as Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Oracle Cloud delivered through a single, streamlined interface, the Protegrity Data Protection Platform enables secure cloud migration, multi-cloud deployments, data sharing, and collaboration. This single end-to-end solution handles data security throughout the company, simplifies security operations, and eliminates the security gaps that arise when data is protected across platforms.

Most businesses keep their data secure in walled gardens (available only to users of a certain platform) that are filled with flaws, complexity, and risk. Protegrity safeguards data wherever it is stored, reducing security risks and ensuring policy compliance.

"Moving to the cloud is essential for businesses to drive continued innovation, yet security concerns and complexity are slowing them from unlocking the full potential of their data. Version 9.0 of the Protegrity Data Protection Platform empowers businesses to make protected data more accessible and productive so that they can capitalize on the power of advanced analytics. When we deliver precise data protection, we alter the enterprise data security model from 'need to know to 'need to share,' unlocking data to deliver greater business value and innovation."

Paul Mountford, CEO, Protegrity

Added Features Are:

  • Unified, Multi-cloud Data Security Empowers Business Resilience and Agility
  • Anonymization Capabilities Deliver Privacy-enhanced, Analytics-ready Data Sets for Advanced Data Collaboration
  • Next-generation Logging Architecture Enables Advanced Threat Hunting

Jeffrey Breen, chief product officer and EVP of product and strategy, Protegrity said that "We've worked closely with our customers to understand their cloud strategies and data security needs to help them unlock the next level of data innovation. The latest release of the Data Protection Platform is a culmination of Protegrity's extensive knowledge and experience in the data protection industry."

Egnyte AEC Data Insights Report Shows Rapid Increase in Data Storage and Signals Potential Challenges

Egnyte | August 16, 2022

Egnyte, the most secure platform for content collaboration and governance, today released its AEC Data Insights Report. The study is based on an analysis of data trends among more than 3,000 customers in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) industry, which has experienced exploding growth in data volume and usage. On average, Egnyte’s AEC customers increased storage by 31.2 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2017 to 2021. While Egnyte serves a diverse range of industries that require varying amounts of storage, the average AEC firm stores more data in the platform than customers in other industries like Real Estate, Retail, Manufacturing, and Life Sciences. According to the report, the typical AEC firm manages 149 percent (2.49x) more files than the cross-industry average. In addition, AEC firms interact with these files on a more frequent basis than other sectors, which can lead to several usability and management issues. “The flood of AEC data that is collected, shared, and managed throughout the design and build process – coupled with the high level of engagement in terms of link and document sharing – can make it difficult for firms to secure their content effectively without disrupting productivity. “The findings of our study, in line with other industry reports, indicate that AEC firms are coming to rely on data storage at a rapid rate. The industry will need to address the challenges associated with this pace of growth by leveraging data management tools like workflow automation and internal/external risk management.” Ronen Vengosh, Vice President of AEC at Egnyte Egnyte’s AEC Data Insights Report also identifies the following key trends: Data sprawl is a growing challenge. The number of individual files stored by AEC firms grew by 23.4 percent CAGR from 2017 to 2021 as they rely on larger file types from various sources, such as drone footage and 3D imagery. Usage patterns vary widely across disciplines. General Contractors share files at a higher rate than any other discipline (Architecture, Engineering, Owners, and Specialty Contractors). Data security issues vary by company size and discipline. Egnyte flagged a staggering growth of ‘high-severity’ data issues from Q4 2020 to Q4 2021, a 325% increase across all AEC domains. The full report findings, as well as best practices in data management, can be found here. Egnyte’s AEC practice will also discuss the results during a webinar on Aug. 18, 2022, joined by industry experts from Brasfield & Gorrie, AON, and AXA XL.

P360, a leading technology developer for pharmaceutical companies, today unveiled that its BirdzAI data and analytics platform has been enhanced with four powerful new pre-built modules for Master Data Management, Insights & Analytics, Sales Operations and Marketing Operations. With these enhancements, BirdzAI’s next-generation ecosystem supports pharmaceutical commercial operations with rapid, end-to-end data management capabilities, including the ingestion, storage, processing and analysis of data derived from commonly used sources like first and third-party prescription data, specialty pharmacy data feeds, CRM systems, marketing interactions reports and more. “With BirdzAI’s new modules, we are giving pharmaceutical commercial operations the ability to generate insights, efficiencies and cost savings never before thought possible. “To do this, we first develop a state-of-the-art master data management ecosystem.

The robust yet flexible solution integrates easily with any commercial operations workflow and creates a single source of truth by bringing all an organization’s sales and marketing data sources together into a state-of-the-art Master Data Management ecosystem.
