“The data attack surface might be a relatively new concept, but it’s based on principles security teams are well aware of — increasing visibility and limiting exposure. When it comes to the cloud, the most effective way to accomplish this is by controlling where sensitive data is stored and making sure that data is always travelling to secure locations. Simply put, as data travels, so should security” said Yoav Regev, co-founder, and CEO of Sentra.
Sentra DSPM solution gives security teams comprehensive access to, control over, and protection from sensitive data breaches throughout the whole public cloud stack. With the aid of the company’s data security platform, businesses may identify and address the main data security issues in their public domains.
