The Covata Data Security Platform provides persistent discovery, protection, and control of unstructured sensitive and compliance-regulated data no matter where it is stored or how it is used. By combining multiple data security technologies into a single solution and securing data at the object level, not only does the Covata Data Security Platform greatly reduce the impacts of a data breach, but it also decreases operation costs by improving information governance and eliminating the need for existing point solutions.
The Covata Data Security Platform includes the ability to locate and identify sensitive files in Cloud and data centre file shares. Using pre-configured and customisable sensitive data type definitions, customers can use Covata Data Discovery to quickly and easily understand where sensitive data resides in platforms such as SharePoint, Office 365, Google Drive, and legacy file shares.
The Protect pillar of the Covata Data Security Platform provides data security measures such as object-level encryption, automated key management, and permissions management. Data encryption ensures that unauthorized users cannot steal usable information. The permissions management allows businesses to define authorized access, even preventing the exposure of sensitive information to IT administrator accounts.
