Atakama, the leading encryption company, has partnered with BigID, the leading data intelligence platform, to provide organisations with an integrated, automated approach to discovering and protecting sensitive and critical data.
Integrating Atakama’s file encryption solution with BigID’s data discovery and classification ensures that organisations can automate well-defined policies to discover, classify, and protect their data. Together, BigID and Atakama make it easy for customers to accelerate governance, reduce risk, protect their sensitive data with advanced encryption, and achieve continuous data compliance.
BigID enables customers to discover, catalogue automatically, and classify all types of data and metadata, structured and unstructured. This includes PII, PHI, NPI, IP, and other sensitive, critical, and regulated data. Once the data has been identified, BigID can label and tag data by the organisation’s policies. Atakama can read the labels and immediately encrypt files in whichever location the files are stored. The integration of BigID and Atakama provides a robust and scalable approach to sensitive data discovery and protection across the entire enterprise.
“BigID together with Atakama provides our customers with a seamless but multi-faceted approach to data security,” said Marc DeGaetano, CRO at BigID. “This partnership takes data protection to another level and will immediately strengthen an organisation’s security posture through unmatched visibility and control. We’re thrilled to have Atakama be an integral technology partner via the BigID App Marketplace as we continue helping organisations meet their data management and security objectives.”
“Partnering with BigID is a natural fit given their industry-leading capabilities across discovery and classification,” said Scott Glazer, CRO at Atakama. “The ability to discover and protect sensitive data is the cornerstone of a successful cybersecurity program. We’re thrilled to be able to work with BigID to deliver the combined solution to our customers via the BigID App Marketplace, who can trust that their data has been properly identified and securely protected.”
