Spirion Sensitive Data Platform: Solution Overview

The Challenge

Data proliferation, increased data protection and privacy legislation and data loss incidents are top of mind concerns for businesses today. Organizations are tasked with protecting their data footprint to address these challenges but find that it can be very difficult to protect sensitive data if you don’t know what you do have or where it resides within the ecosystem. This lack of data insight puts organizations at risk for data breaches, reputational damage and fines for non-compliance with data protection laws.

The Solution

Spirion Sensitive Data Platform (SDP) provides Privacy-Grade™ data discovery and purposeful classification in a highly scalable SaaS hybrid architecture, able to thoroughly scan both on-premises endpoints/servers and cloud repositories at enterprise scale. It quickly and automatically discovers, classifies, and remediates almost any form of sensitive data or personally identifiable information (PII) anywhere on-premises, in the cloud, and on all endpoints.
