Wiesbaden, Germany – 23 November 2022 – comforte AG today announced a new Secure Data Analytics solution designed to empower organizations to leverage cloud-based analytics tools without compromising on security or compliance.
Cloud-powered data analytics platforms like Snowflake, Amazon Redshift and Google BigQuery are fomenting a quiet revolution by unlocking customer and market insight to drive better informed business decisions.
However, the data used by such tools often contains personal and financial information that is highly regulated by laws such as GDPR and CCPA, as well as industry regulations.
Some organizations mistakenly apply traditional controls to these cloud environments, and/or place too much trust in their providers’ built-in protections, which can create additional security and compliance risk.
Others might mandate project owners anonymize or mask sensitive data, or not use it at all, meaning projects cannot deliver on their expected business value or are indefinitely delayed.
Comforte’s new Secure Data Analytics solution takes a different approach, helping organizations to optimize their use of cloud-based analytics in a fully secure and compliant fashion.
It does this by:
- Continuously and automatically discovering and classifying all sensitive information (eg PII, PHI etc)
- Protecting this data in a way that can be used by authorized users in analytics tools (eg format-preserving encryption)
- Protecting data before it enters the cloud and keeping it protected throughout its lifecycle to ensure compliance
- Enabling a more automated approach to data protection which reduces manual toil and costs and simplifies data and security management
“Leading global organizations including some of our largest customers are migrating more and more of their data ecosystems to hybrid and multi-clouds. But doing so increases complexity and the risk of non-compliance with rigorous data protection laws,” said comforte CTO, Henning Horst.
“In order to unlock insight and optimize the value of their data to drive innovation-fuelled growth, these enterprises must empower their data analytics teams with streamlined solutions which preserve data utility without incurring extra security or compliance risk.”
