Discover and Control Sensitive Data in Multi-cloud Environments: Use Case Cloud Governance
Discover sensitive data and control it. Data Governance teams stop chasing people to find out what’s going on and instead start chasing resolutions.
Cloud Governance Challenges
While developers and data scientists have free reign to capture, copy and manipulate sensitive data in public cloud environments, data governance teams have lost visibility much less control over data in the cloud.
Unknown Data Assets
Lacking programmatic discovery of data assets, the full range of data assets is unknown.
The sensitivity of the data types are not discoverable without manual investigation.
Lack of Context
Context such as asset owner, usage, and application dependencies is not known due to turnover or gaps in documentation.
Pace of Change
By the time the data assets are investigated, the list is already out of date.
