Combined Solution Provides Ability to Identify, Track and Secure Data At-Rest and In-Motion, to help Ensure the Integrity of Data Sharing Agreements
SEATTLE – October 30, 2019 – Cloudentity and Integris Software have formed a partnership to deliver the industry’s first solution to address the data privacy and security requirements for compliance, and modern API-based services. Together, the companies have set a new standard for visualizing where personal data is stored, which applications are accessing that data, and if the customer is granted consent.
The combined solution provides enterprises with the ability to identify, track and secure data at-rest and in-motion. Privacy and security need to be integrated to deliver complete data protection. Integris Data Privacy Automation discovers what data is important and why, enabling Cloudentity to be precise in its security and policy controls.
“The data that flows between business entities must be protected with better security and privacy controls,” said Nathanael Coffing, Founder, Cloudentity. “Our partnership with Integris allows organizations to intelligently protect personal identifiable information stored in any environment, including the cloud. Businesses use API-based transactions to exchange consumer data. We protect APIs, and transactions by authorizing the exchange of privacy information at a granular level. Our partnership is a next-generation consumer consent and privacy-aware microservice-firewall.”
Companies are constantly purchasing or exchanging data in order to build better customer profiles or complete a transaction. In a recent Integris Software Data Privacy Maturity Study of mid and large enterprises, 40 percent of respondents had 50 or more data sharing agreements (e.g., Cambridge Analytica) in place.
“Companies are being inundated with personal data. A single bank transaction might get replicated across a hundred data repositories and involve dozens of applications,” said Drew Schuil, vice president of Global Business Development and EMEA Operations for Integris Software. “In this environment, manual checks on privacy, security, and customer consent reach the breaking point. We are honored to partner with Cloudentity to help businesses solve this challenge, protect their data collections, and ensure compliance with privacy regulations.”
The joint solution provides the foundation for complying with California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and other US state privacy laws and international laws including Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Key capabilities of the joint solution include the ability to:
- Discover, monitor, and protect personal information as it’s shared across an organization’s internal, partner, and consumer app ecosystems
- Ensure that data sharing contracts align with live data repositories and API application access, whether by a user, third-party app, or system
- Automate privacy and security checks on data at-rest, and in-motion when used in a business transaction
- Demonstrate the assurance of safe PII data, and access and authorization policies related to personal information for compliance
