SecurityIQ 5.0 empowers businesses to manage and eliminate risk for their unstructured files and data
London, UK. SailPoint, the leader in identity management, today announced the latest version of its data access governance solution, SecurityIQ 5.0. SailPoint’s new release gives organisations the power to protect against the next big wave of data breaches through intelligent and actionable management of sensitive files residing within a network or in the cloud. SecurityIQ allows enterprises to discover and govern access to sensitive data, enabling them to better address the growing security threat to unstructured data stored in files. With tight integration between SailPoint’s identity governance platform, IdentityIQ, and SecurityIQ, enterprises can now easily govern access to all applications and data from a single solution, eliminating security and compliance gaps.
Most organisations today have a blind spot when it comes to knowing what sensitive data exists and where it is stored, putting a big target on unstructured data by attackers. SecurityIQ gives enterprises the ability to discover where sensitive is stored in files and folders, eliminate overexposed permissions, and apply centralised management and access controls over unstructured data residing in systems running on-premises or in the cloud. SecurityIQ also helps enterprises put the business in control by delivering powerful tools to determine the right business owners who understand the context and correct usage of the data they oversee. As a result, organisations can now manage the entire lifecycle of sensitive data across the enterprise IT environment, minimising risk exposure and simplifying compliance reporting.
“With millions of documents residing on company networks and unstructured files largely unmanaged, enterprises face numerous exposure points,” said Paul Trulove, SailPoint’s vice president of product management. “SecurityIQ 5.0 streamlines the process of unearthing all of that sensitive data stored in unstructured systems, assigning proper owners and applying automated policy controls to ensure data stays secure. All of this greatly reduces the risk an organisation faces when it comes to the highly sensitive information that is embedded in documents, spreadsheets, presentations and other business-related documents. With SecurityIQ, we’re empowering enterprises to confidently respond to threats in real time, and – given the integration with IdentityIQ – enabling them to extend existing identity governance efforts to include unstructured data stores.”
New capabilities in SecurityIQ 5.0 include:
- Tight integration between IdentityIQ and SecurityIQ gives enterprises greater identity context to security alerts, arming IT teams with the information they need to quickly address malicious insider threat activity, vastly improving their security posture and reducing risk.
- New and updated connectors for Windows Server 2016, NetApp OnTap 8.3, Microsoft SharePoint, Exchange, OneDrive, Google Drive, Box, and Dropbox provide intelligent discovery and management of sensitive data residing on-premises and cloud.
- Real-time analytics displayed across actionable dashboards enables data owners to quickly track critical KPIs, helping them to better understand and address current risk levels due to stale data and permissions, overexposure of sensitive data, and over-permissioned resources.
- A new and extensive library of over 100 ready-made reports provide visibility regarding activities, permissions, policy changes and more; providing IT departments greater insight and compliance departments the ability to demonstrate proof-of-compliance.
