The Challenge

A significant challenge today for IT security and data loss prevention teams is the exponential growth of new data. As estimated by Statista; in 2021, 79 zettabytes of data will be consumed worldwide, compared with 64.2 zettabytes in 2020. This is predicted to rise to 180 zettabytes by 2025. With so much data circulating and more than half of security teams protecting upwards of 9,999 endpoints, it can be challenging to follow the traditional approach to DLP, which is to classify and protect their most valuable data assets. For this reason, it is important to implement modern and comprehensive data-protection tools that understand the context of data and are able to correctly identify sensitive data, as well as classify and determine how the data is handled.
