BigID, the leading platform for data security, compliance, privacy, and governance, today announced a breakthrough in data cleanup with the launch of its industry-first ML-powered solution for finding duplicate and similar data content. The innovative technology uses groundbreaking AI to locate both similar and duplicate data on any data set, enabling organizations to easily identify duplicate data as well as redundant, obsolete, or trivial (ROT) data. These transformative capabilities mean that organizations can reduce their storage cost, accelerate compliance, and improve cybersecurity across their environment.
Duplicate and redundant data are a treasure trove for cybercriminals - exponentially increasing the risk of data leaks, data breaches, and compromised data. By reducing the attack surface and reducing duplicate and redundant data, organizations can improve their system hygiene, reduce insider risk, and get more value from their data.
With BigID's powerful data minimization and cleanup capabilities, organizations can now automatically find duplicate data quickly and delete it in accordance with retention policies - enabling full data lifecycle management across all of their data, everywhere. This not only helps reduce risk and improve security posture, but also saves time and resources that would otherwise be spent manually sorting through large amounts of data.
With BigID's data minimization capabilities, organizations can:
Quickly and accurately identify duplicate, similar, and redundant data
Automatically discover dark data and shadow data
Manage and de-risk their data by type, sensitivity, and policy
Implement data retention and remediate duplicate, sensitive, and redundant data
Deleted data that's no longer needed
Streamline data lifecycle management from collection to destruction
"Data minimization is critical to any data management strategy, and BigID's ML-powered solution makes it easier and faster than ever before," said Dimitri Sirota, CEO of BigID. "By automating the process of identifying and deleting duplicate data, we're helping our customers reduce their risk and improve their overall security posture."
The ML-powered solution is a key component of BigID's comprehensive data management platform, which provides a range of capabilities including data discovery, classification, compliance, risk management, privacy, and governance.
BigID's data intelligence platform enables organizations to know their enterprise data and take action for privacy, security, and governance. Customers deploy BigID to proactively discover, manage, protect, and get more value from their regulated, sensitive, and personal data across their data landscape. BigID has been recognized for its data intelligence innovation as a 2019 World Economic Forum Technology Pioneer, named to the 2021 Forbes Cloud 100, the 2021 Inc 5000 as the #19th fastest growing company and #1 in Security, a Business Insider 2020 AI Startup to Watch, and an RSA Innovation Sandbox winner.

Dashlane, the security-first password manager, today introduced Passwordless Login, a technology that eliminates the need to create a master password to access Dashlane. The company was the first password manager to offer an extension that supports passkeys and this is the next step in that evolution. With Passwordless Login, users will be able to securely access their Dashlane account without having to create and remember a single password.
As digital profiles have multiplied both professionally and personally, it’s become increasingly difficult to securely manage credentials. Gartner reported that as many as 20-50% of all helpdesk calls are related to password resets. Password managers have helped simplify this process, though users have still needed to create and remember a master password to access their vaults.
By eliminating the master password, Dashlane will empower users to create new phishing-resistant, passwordless accounts that don’t suffer from the vulnerabilities of traditional passwords and multifactor authentication (MFA). Not only does this strengthen overall security posture, it removes user friction and provides a more accessible way for people to access their accounts and protect their personal information.
“Our business has long been about helping users and organizations manage their passwords and logins. But the digital password was born in the 1960s and despite technological advancements, many people still use the same username and password format for most of their online lives,” said John Bennett, CEO at Dashlane. “While our business model has relied on users having one strong, unique master password, it’s still a password that can be weak, reused, phished, or breached. Unveiling today’s passwordless technology marks a significant milestone in our journey towards a future with no passwords.”
By relying on the strength of local device security, which includes PINs and biometrics, Dashlane is able to securely authenticate and provide access to a user’s encrypted vault, which allows Dashlane to be resistant to phishing attacks. Additionally, Dashlane uses cryptographic keys generated with Elliptic-curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDH) to assist with securely exchanging secrets between devices, making setting up a new device fast and secure and regaining access simple. Dashlane is introducing a new mechanism to let users recover their data if they lose their device. This new Dashlane Account Recovery Key will also be made available to our existing users who still use a master password to log in to Dashlane.
Dashlane’s Passwordless Login is a cross-platform solution that is agnostic to the state of a user’s hardware and software. The technology also enables:
Faster device setup flow using a registered device
The ability to set up device-specific PIN codes and biometrics (like fingerprint or facial recognition) to create an account on a mobile iOS or Android device
The ability to regain access to an account with a recovery key, in the event of a total device loss
Dashlane recently became a board-level member of the FIDO Alliance, doubling down on its commitment to work with industry partners to advance the passwordless future through the widespread adoption of passkeys and phishing-resistant authentication.
New Dashlane users will be able to sign up for an account without a master password in the coming months on their mobile device, and the capability will be rolled out to existing customers later this year.

We are closely attuned to the needs of our users, balancing simple tools with an uncompromising approach to security–a game changer for anyone, but especially for IT admins working to secure their organization. Our team in Paris, New York, and Lisbon is united by a strong sense of community and passion for improving the digital experience.
