Dig, a prominent leader in cloud data security, has made a groundbreaking announcement today regarding the expansion of its Data Security Platform. This expansion signifies a resolute commitment to safeguarding sensitive data stored across diverse enterprise environments, encompassing public cloud, software as a service (SaaS), database as a service (DBaaS), and on-premises setups. Of notable importance is the fact that Dig's data security posture management (DSPM) and data detection and response (DDR) capabilities are now fully deployable to protect data residing in Office365, alongside on-premises systems. This makes the Dig Data Security Platform a truly unique DSPM solution capable of securing data, regardless of its location.
According to Dan Benjamin, the co-founder and CEO of Dig Security, modern enterprises are embarking on a journey to migrate their data operations to the cloud. However, many still retain on-premises components, resulting in a complex and fragmented toolchain that has posed significant challenges in terms of management and security. With the extension of DSPM and DDR capabilities to on-premises environments, Dig Security aims to empower its customers with unparalleled visibility and a comprehensive data security framework, ultimately helping them safeguard sensitive information and fortify defenses against potential cyberattacks.
This expansion brings several noteworthy advantages to users, including the consolidation of disparate tools used for data security and compliance risk management across various environments. Dig simplifies data management and policy application, reduces tool complexity, and accelerates response times. Furthermore, Dig's cloud-native, agentless approach ensures easy deployment within minutes, requiring minimal permissions. This eliminates the need for businesses to invest months in evaluating and implementing different tools while managing complex toolchains, delivering rapid time-to-value.
Dig's enhanced platform also addresses data blind spots across the entire data estate, whether in the cloud or on-premises, thus mitigating risks related to data exfiltration, ransomware, and compliance breaches. With real-time capabilities, Dig empowers businesses to detect and respond to incidents swiftly, enabling them to contain breaches or violations immediately, thus limiting their potential impact.
This significant expansion of the Dig Data Security Platform follows recent enhancements, including support for securing Large Language Model (LLM) architectures and Optical Character Recognition (OCR). These developments further cement Dig's position as a formidable leader in the field of cloud data security, providing advanced solutions to address evolving cybersecurity challenges.
