Colleagues continue to be the most significant threat to data. While using unauthorized tools or unapproved workflows may seem innocuous, these activities lead to significant loss of data and control. Limitations on the size of email attachments may cause frustrated employees to use less secure methods of data migration, such as moving data from one device to another, copying data to USB drives, or using unauthorized applications.
Similarly, employees may use unapproved file sync and share solutions, such as Box or GoogleDrive to collaborate internally and externally more easily, bypassing IT-approved solutions that involve more complex and time-consuming elements such as VPNs. These well intentioned behaviors create data vulnerabilities that can’t be ignored.
To effectively mitigate the insider threat, organizations must adopt a data security approach that features persistent data protection, easy to manage access control policies, and an auditable trail of every action taken on data. They must also have the ability to protect new derivatives and ensure that access control persists no matter where data is created, consumed, stored, or modified. SecureCircle’s Data Access Security Broker (DASB) is the only solution capable of delivering these requirements in an entirely transparent way, while not adding operational overhead for the business, IT staff, or users.

Historically, data has been protected while held within the perimeter of a firewall. Today, with the Cloud, SaaS, & BYOD, your data escaped or never resided in the perimeter, leaving sensitive data vulnerable.
It’s not surprising that data breaches occur to enterprises, in all industries, seemingly daily. Data is used and generated everywhere. Data powers embedded applications, smartphones, cars, web browsers, refrigerators, HVAC systems, and toilets.
The infrastructure of these platforms consists of client server systems and cloud services, and the platforms are powered by your data flowing in and out of them. The increasing rate of data breaches points to data, replacing humans, as the most valuable asset within an enterprise.
SecureCircle’s data-centric DASB enables you to control this asset, retaining control of your data without impacting applications, overhead, workflows, or end user experience. DASB is the only solution that empowers you to enable secure access and satisfy various data security compliance requirements.
