With an increasing focus on data privacy and introduction of laws such as GDPR and CCPA, organizations are pulling all the stops to ensure their sensitive data in the cloud remains protected. While most of the latest cloud security solutions perform a real-time check on the data moving into the cloud to ensure they remain compliant, but what about the data that has already been residing in the cloud for years? How do you perform a check on the historical data and ensure they are compliant with the latest data residency laws?
CipherCloud’s Cloud Data Discovery (CDD) enables enterprises to perform historical scanning of all existing data within a cloud application to ensure compliance readiness. Through an API integration, CDD scans the content, collaboration and links across popular SaaS clouds. With CipherCloud CDD, users can perform a thorough audit of the data resident in the cloud to identify confidential and sensitive information related to PII, PHI, PCI, HIPAA and many more, and enforce remediations to preserve data integrity and compliance.
