IBM Protect & Govern Sensitive Data

IBM Security Services

Get ahead of compliance demands and protect against data breaches with secure data across Microsoft Azure and your hybrid cloud environments.

Traditional security approach is not enough… a data-centric security approach is required. Current approaches focus on prevention and threat management of the enterprise application, network and infrastructure which hosts and processes the data. A data centric approach augments the current approach by enhancing your data security discipline and increase focus on the security of the data itself than just the infrastructure it is hosted on.

A successful data-centric program requires some key capabilities:

  • Scan Your Data Landscape: Discover, baseline and classify the enterprise data landscape across hybrid, multi-cloud environments
  • Data Governance: Enforce data security consistently with inclusion in data governance workflows and processes
  • Governance Arrangements: Prescriptive standards and handling guidelines covering known business uses with exception handling
  • Holistic Data Protection: Full-lifecycle protection with automation for data in use, at rest and in motion
  • Operating Model: Data security as a dedicated cyber discipline with a clear mandate and org model
  • Data-centric Threat Monitoring: Centralized data-centric threat monitoring and response

IBM’s data protection methodology is simple and repeatable:

  • Understand your data: Gain visibility & knowledge of your data landscape through discovery & classification
  • Secure your data: Develop a control framework for end-to-end protection of critical data & minimize business disruption from data loss
  • Monitor your data: Enable business confidence and assurance for stakeholders with a data-centric threat monitoring
Benefits of a Data-centric security program:
