Laminar, the leading agile data security platform provider, today announced new data access governance (DAG) and data detection and response (DDR) functions to its Laminar Data Security Platform, making it the first solution on the market to deliver complete identify, protect, detect, and respond capabilities for multi-cloud and SaaS data security. Laminar is now the only data security provider to integrate all critical data security functions – data landscape intelligence, data security posture management (DSPM), DAG, DDR, and privacy and compliance – in a single, integrated platform.
Data security and governance professionals need agile data security solutions that automatically scale with the business to combat the growing divergence between the dynamic and ever-growing activities that contribute to innovation while also fighting the lagging data security efforts intended to protect the business — that are becoming increasingly insufficient.
The foundation of agile data security begins with cloud-native data discovery and classification which detects all known and unknown, or “shadow,” data to help organizations understand what data resides where, how sensitive the data is, and who or what has access to it. With this context, security posture can be assessed and appropriately enforced. From there, it's critical to have the ability to continually monitor and protect against emerging threats.
The addition of DAG and DDR to the Laminar Data Security Platform provides the following benefits to organizations:
Data Access Governance (DAG) reduces exposure and minimizes the blast radius from data leaks by controlling user and machine access to sensitive data and ensuring least privilege.
Data Detection and Response (DDR) alerts on data breaches and other anomalies as they occur to quickly contain any active threats and minimize the potential damage for businesses. The new DAG and DDR services complement the following capabilities already existing in the Laminar Data Security Platform:
Data Landscape Intelligence: Provides a holistic view of asset and data inventory with contextual intelligence from autonomous discovery and classification of all known and unknown cloud data.
Data Security Posture Management (DSPM): Enforces policies and safeguards sensitive data with risk-based prioritization, enabling organizations to focus on what matters most.
Privacy & Compliance: Ensures data security practices align with regulations and standards to streamline audits, avoid fines and reduce audit costs. Laminar is the only data security provider to now integrate all five elements of an agile platform architecture for a complete data security solution. This integrated design provides more accurate detection, comprehensively protects data, and streamlines remediation.
“Security-in-depth best practices have historically needed the ability to identify, protect, detect, and respond to threats. Cloud data security is no different,” said Amit Shaked, CEO and co-founder, Laminar. “Our new DAG and DDR features make our platform the reference model for achieving agile data security in the cloud. All five components work in conjunction to deliver a unified, streamlined experience.”
“Protecting data in the cloud requires different tools than are used to protect on-premises data, and organizations need a purpose-built cloud data security solution. Enterprise Strategy Group recommends organizations explore solutions like Laminar that provide a holistic approach to the entire process of securing data in the cloud and provide unified and integrated data security across multiple clouds,” said Jack Poller, Senior Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group.
Laminar is the leading agile data security platform and provides organizations with the visibility and control they need to achieve data security, governance, and privacy in the cloud. Our cloud-native data security solution continuously discovers and classifies all cloud data, structured and unstructured, across managed and self-hosted data stores, including unknown shadow data, without the data ever leaving your environment. It analyzes access, usage patterns, and security posture, and provides actionable, guided remediation for data security risk. Laminar connects to your multi-cloud environment including AWS, Azure, GCP, Snowflake, BigQuery and SaaS applications via APIs and is agentless, asynchronous, and completely autonomous.
