Overview

BigID aims to transform how enterprise protect and manage the privacy of personal data. Organizations are facing record breaches of personal information and proliferating global privacy regulations like the EU GDPR with fines reaching 4% of annual revenue. Today enterprises lack dedicated purpose built technology to help them track and govern their customer data at scale. By bringing data science to data privacy, BigID aims to give enterprises the software to safeguard and steward the most important asset organizations manage: their customer data.

In information security, context is king. And context is enhanced drastically when products are integrated as part of a unified platform. A Data Security Platform (DSP) is a category of security products that replaces traditionally disparate security tools. DSPs combine data protection capabilities such as sensitive data discovery, data access governance, user behavior analytics, advanced threat detection, activity monitoring, and compliance reporting, and integrate with adjacent security technologies. The Varonis Data Security Platform (DSP) protects enterprise data against insider threats, data breaches and cyberattacks by analyzing content, accessibility of data and the behavior of the people and machines that access data to alert on misbehavior, enforce a least privilege model and automate data management functions.
