Digital Guardian, a globally renowned company in data loss prevention solutions, has announced it significantly enhanced its relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS) through several key initiatives and achievements.
Integration with Amazon Macie
Digital Guardian has announced the general availability of their integration with Amazon Macie, a fully managed data security and data privacy service that uses machine learning and pattern matching to discover and provide additional protection for customers’ sensitive data in Amazon Web Services.
Amazon Macie is designed to automate the discovery of sensitive data at scale and lowers the cost of protecting data
As organizations manage growing volumes of data, identifying and protecting their sensitive data, at scale, can become increasingly complex, expensive, and time-consuming. Amazon Macie is designed to automate the discovery of sensitive data at scale and lowers the cost of protecting data.
Unified sensitive data discovery
Digital Guardian now leverages Amazon Macie to build an integration that extends enterprise data loss prevention from traditional endpoints to AWS. For shared Digital Guardian and Amazon Macie customers, this integration provides unified sensitive data discovery and visibility, and other compelling benefits, including:
- The ability to correlate Amazon Macie findings with Digital Guardian Endpoint events, providing visibility into the file lifecycle.
- Automated alarming and incident tracking of Amazon Macie incidents in Digital Guardian Analytics & Reporting Cloud (ARC) to support complex compliance mandates, such as ITAR and GDPR.
- On-demand reporting and remediation actions to add an additional layer of protection for sensitive data stored in Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) buckets.
“In 2020, we announced a series of major enhancements to Amazon Macie, including new features, greater availability worldwide and substantially reduced pricing,” said Dan Plastina, Vice President for External Security Services, Amazon Web Services, Inc.
Enterprise data protection
Providing a seamless integration with Amazon Macie was a top product priority at Digital Guardian"
Dan adds, “We are pleased that Digital Guardian is now integrated with Amazon Macie, as this allows our shared customers to benefit from unified visibility of sensitive data stored in Amazon S3 buckets, on local network shares and on endpoint devices. This visibility can then inform policies to protect their data no matter where it resides.”
“Providing a seamless integration with Amazon Macie was a top product priority at Digital Guardian,” said Mordecai Rosen, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Digital Guardian, adding “We believe federation is critical to enterprise data protection programs providing the ability to see and manage sensitive data no matter where it resides.”
Support for Amazon WorkSpaces on Windows
Mordecai adds, “Amazon Macie is an effective service for identifying and securing sensitive data in Amazon S3, and with Digital Guardian’s integration we can offer our shared customers unified data visibility and protection from a single pane of glass.”
Amazon WorkSpaces is a managed, secure Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) solution. Customers can use Amazon WorkSpaces to provision Windows desktops in just a few minutes and quickly scale to provide thousands of desktops to workers around the globe.
