Protect sensitive data against internal and external threats

Managing access to unstructured data is a growing concern for many organisations. In the last several years, the majority of data breaches include theft of unstructured data. SailPoint, the leading Identity Administration and Governance provider, is now offering a solution to address data governance challenges with SecurityIQ.

An oversight of data creation on file shares or external drives by end users exposes organisations to a challenge with understanding where data is stored, how sensitive the content is and who should have access to this data.

By bringing data governance under the purview of Identity, organisations can manage access to unstructured data in the same way as access to applications and systems. SecurityIQ provides customers the same level of visibility and governance over unstructured data as they have for applications and identities to enable business and IT to jointly work to mitigate the risk of exposure across all applications, all data and all users. By addressing data governance as part of a comprehensive IDAM strategy, organisations can gain a single view into identities and their associated access privileges as a complete picture of who has access to what, how they got access, whether they should have access, and who approved it.
