Concentric AI Announces Functionality for Data Discovery, Protection

Concentric AI, a vendor of intelligent AI-based solutions for autonomous data security posture management (DSPM), announced what it calls “the industry’s first archetype functionality” for unmatched granularity and precision of data discovery and protection.

Archetype in the context of data discovery, classification and risk remediation is a specific type of data or file that contains sensitive or confidential information, such as a contract in the legal industry, a tax form in finance services or a workers’ compensation claim in the insurance field.

As a result, updates to Concentric AI’s Semantic Intelligence DSPM solution enable security teams to identify archetypes within their organizations and leverage contextual understanding to identify sensitive data, monitor for risk and protect data at a level of granularity and precision that traditional methods can’t match.

Concentric AI uses large language models (LLMs) to understand the layers of information within each archetype and categorize them accordingly. This way of performing data discovery, risk monitoring and protection that identifies the archetype of data instead of just where sensitive data exists enhances organizations’ ability to perform risk assessments to identify data at-risk and employ strong data security measures.

By identifying and classifying sensitive information within each archetype, Concentric AI provides organizations with a comprehensive overview of their data landscape, highlighting potential areas of risk and ensuring that appropriate data protection measures can be put in place.

It’s a more accurate way to find sensitive information and identify data at risk than legacy methods.

The launch enables partners to best serve their customers with unique data security capabilities delivered for their clients in a world-class data security solution.

Concentric AI’s DSPM solution scans organizations’ data, detects sensitive or business-critical content, identifies the most appropriate classification category and tags the data. Concentric AI uses artificial intelligence (AI) to improve discovery and classification accuracy and efficiency to avoid endless regex rules and inaccurate end-user labeling. In addition, Concentric AI can monitor and identify risks to financial and other data from inappropriate permissions, wrong entitlements, risky sharing and unauthorized access.

It also can remediate permissions and sharing issues or leverage other security solutions and cloud APIs to protect exposed data quickly and continuously.

Concentric AI’s Semantic Intelligence automates unstructured and structured data security using deep learning to categorize data, uncover business criticality and reduce risk. Its Risk Distance™ analysis technology uses the baseline security practices observed for each data category to spot security anomalies in individual files. It compares documents of the same type to identify risk from oversharing, third-party access, wrong location, or misclassification.

Organizations benefit from the expertise of content owners without intrusive classification mandates, with no rules, regex, or policy maintenance needed.

Concentric AI’s latest version of Semantic Intelligence with archetype functionality is available today. For information, see
