We discussed earlier why organizations need Sensitive Data Intelligence. Now, let’s look into some of the recommended features that will help organizations choose the most effective SDI solution.
An effective SDI solution must have the following features:
The ability to identify hundreds of personal and sensitive data attributes across regulations, regions, and industries:An effective SDI solution can identify hundreds of personal and sensitive data attributes across multiple systems and platforms of the same organization and across industries such as healthcare, financial, education, and government. It also can cater to a wide range of privacy regulations.
Petabyte scale data discovery:An effective SDI solution can optimize data scan performance. It has a built-in elastic scaling feature that spins up new nodes based on available data, time, and cost. Such scanning allows organizations to scale and support the petabyte volume of data assets, even if these assets are spread across multiple organization systems.
Enhanced data detection efficacy:An effective SDI solution with in-built natural language processing, artificial intelligence, and machine learning techniques greatly improves its ability to discover sensitive data with extremely high efficacy rates.
Policy & Workflow engine:An effective SDI solution has an in-built policy and workflow engine to enforce security and privacy policies across any cloud environment.
Integrated data security and privacy management:An effective SDI solution can address various privacy and security functions from a single dashboard.
Flexible deployment models:An effective SDI solution has flexible deployment models to cater to all kinds of organizations, including those with adequate data security infrastructures and those with none.
