Concentric AI, a vendor of intelligent AI-based solutions for autonomous data security posture management, launched functionality that protects sensitive data shared as text or attachments across today’s most popular business messaging platforms, including e-mail, Slack and Microsoft Teams.
These new capabilities, available as part of the trademarked Concentric Semantic Intelligence platform, autonomously evaluate and manage data security posture to give security professionals the centralized remediation tools they need to find access issues and prevent data loss.
Available today and publicly unveiled at Black Hat USA 2022 in Concentric’s Innovation City Booth No. 90 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, this capability reveals sensitive data shared across e-mail and business messaging platforms and highlights who has inappropriate access to mission-critical content.
As messaging and communication tools explode in popularity, organizations struggle to control data leakage and prevent sharing abuses and mistakes. Limited visibility into content, context and access allows regulated personal information, critical business documents and other sensitive data to fall into the wrong hands. Concentric’s deep learning and natural language processing (NLP) technologies help organizations to:
- Identify sensitive and regulated data, such as PII/PCI/PHI, confidential business content, and financial information as it flows across messaging and e-mail platforms.
- Evaluate an organization’s data security posture to determine who has access and whether that access is appropriate and authorized.
- Centrally remediate issues by disabling access, recalling messages, or integrating with end-user and SOC workflows for redress.
“E-mail, Slack and Teams are double-edged swords,” said Karthik Krishnan, Concentric CEO. “They’re unmatched as productivity tools, but they also create huge potential for data loss. Malicious actions or human error can easily expose business-critical data to unauthorized users. With Concentric, employees can continue collaborating and keep their operations humming without exposing the organization to regulatory violations, intellectual property loss or data breaches.”
Given the staggering volumes of data exchanged by end users and third parties, automation is essential to any practical data security posture management strategy. Concentric’s natural language processing (NLP) technologies and trademarked MIND deep-learning-as-a-service capabilities work to automate sensitive data discovery, analyze content and context, assess risk, and mitigate problems without the burden of writing hundreds of rules to spot sensitive data or relying on end users to enforce appropriate security policies. Concentric’s Semantic Intelligence works without additional staff overhead, end-user frustration, or gaps in protection coverage.
Concentric’s e-mail and messaging protection capabilities are available today for Semantic Intelligence customers who have purchased the Enterprise license. For more information, see www.concentric.ai/licensing.
