Data security is a never-ending race. Hackers and malware authors constantly find new ways to penetrate network defenses while security experts and software vendors work furiously to plug gaps and innovate new solutions to prevent security breaches.
Sometimes, the black-hat operators pull into the lead. We’ve seen that in recent months: with security teams struggling to meet the needs of distributed workforces, cyberattacks have soared. Ransomware, too, has proven especially dangerous during the coronavirus crisis, with companies and organizations such as hospitals more willing than usual to pay large sums to retrieve stolen data.
But sometimes, too, the good guys take the lead. We’re seeing that now with a new wave of innovation, powered by AI and automation, that’s enabling organizations to make their data security far more robust without having to dedicate ever-greater amounts of time and resources to their cybersecurity efforts.
Done right, AI-powered data protection management gives the good guys the advantage. That’s because it eliminates much of the scope for human error: Dathena’s automated data classification tools, for instance, take over the whole process of tagging sensitive data, removing a critical failure point for your broader security operations. Better yet, because the process is automated it takes place at computer speed, not human speed, allowing you to process and protect data 10,000 times faster than before.
That frees up your human agents to focus on the places where their experience and judgment are most useful, preventing burnout and giving them another critical advantage in the race to beat hackers and cybercriminals. And because Dathena’s tools dovetail with and augment other companies’ security tools — such as Microsoft’s cloud and Office-based solutions — your automated capabilities ripple through your whole network to boost security wherever your data exists.
Of course, there’s no such thing as a definitive victory over cybercriminals and hackers; no matter how good your network security, they’ll always find new exploits and vulnerabilities. But with Dathena on your side, and AI and automation tools at your disposal, you can gain a game-changing advantage over anyone trying to access or misuse your data. The race never ends — but with Dathena, you can feel confident that you’ll always come out ahead.
