New Capabilities Support California Consumer Privacy Act and a Wide Variety of Unstructured Data Sources
Kogni, provider of the leading enterprise solution to discover, secure, and monitor sensitive data, announced several key updates to its data security platform. Building on its core data-centric audit and protection solution, Kogni’s latest release enables users to stay compliant with new and pending regulations, as well as cover an ever-growing number of enterprise data sources. With Kogni, enterprises in financial services, healthcare, education, and other verticals can dramatically simplify their data governance, regulatory and compliance efforts.
Major shifts in how data is stored has made enterprise data environments increasingly complex, and the location of sensitive data is always changing. In most organizations, knowledge of sensitive data is siloed and ‘tribal’ instead of institutional, and there is no holistic understanding about what data the company has, where it lives, and who is accessing it. Cloud and big data environments are often black boxes making the challenge even greater. Kogni provides single pane of glass visibility across all databases, environments, and geographies.
The features and benefits of Kogni’s latest platform release include:
- Support for CCPA (California Consumer Privacy Act), enabling companies doing business in California to stay complaint with CCPA, which goes into effect January 1, 2020
- Compliance packs for GDPR, PHI, FERPA, PCI, CCPA.
- Document Recognition capabilities, enabling enterprises to discover and catalog sensitive data from documents like W2, 1099, etc.
- Ability to discover rogue or hidden databases, ensuring hidden risks do not go unaddressed
- Enhanced support for unstructured data in MongoDB, Google Drive, OneDrive, and Dropbox
- Multi-cloud support, ensuring coverage for enterprises using a combination of public and private cloud
“This latest release of the Kogni platform represents an important step in helping enterprises adopt a more data-centric security strategy and move away from threat-centric security practices, which are no longer sufficient to address the risks stemming from a landscape exploding with new sources of sensitive data,” said Avinash Ramineni, CTO of Kogni. “Kogni offers a unique set of AI-powered security tools and controls that help enterprises better protect their personal data assets and stay compliant in an age of ever-evolving laws and regulations.”
