Concentric AI protects sensitive data with new features

Concentric AI, a provider of smart AI-powered solutions for self-driving data security posture management, has launched a feature that protects sensitive data shared as text or attachments across messaging platforms popular business solutions, including email, Slack, and Microsoft Teams.

These new capabilities, available as part of the Concentric Semantic Intelligence Platform, autonomously assess and manage the state of data security to provide security professionals with the powerful, centralized remediation tools they need. to detect access problems and prevent data loss.

The company’s artificial intelligence technology, which protects millions of users in the cloud and on-premises data stores, now extends precise, comprehensive and autonomous protection to shared data using these tools more more popular.

Available now, this feature reveals sensitive data shared across email and work platforms and highlights who has inappropriate access to critical content.

As messaging and communication tools grow in popularity, organizations are struggling to control data leaks and prevent misuse and missharing, the company says. Limited visibility into content, context, and access routinely 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 are designed to help organizations:

  • Identify sensitive and regulated data, such as PII/PCI/PHI, confidential business content, and financial information as it flows across email and messaging platforms.
  • Assess an organization’s data security posture to determine who has access and whether that access is appropriate and authorized.
  • Resolve issues centrally by disabling access, recalling messages, or integrating end-user and SOC workflows to remediate.

Karthik Krishnan, CEO of Concentric, “Email, Slack and Teams are double-edged swords. They are unmatched as productivity tools, but they also create huge potential for data loss.

“Malicious actions or human error can easily expose critical data to unauthorized users. With Concentric, employees can continue to collaborate and maintain operations without exposing the organization to regulatory violations, loss of intellectual property or data breaches.”

Given the large 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 MIND’s deep learning-as-a-service capabilities work together to automate the discovery of sensitive data, analyze content and context, assess risk, and mitigate issues without having to write hundreds of rules to spot sensitive data. 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 email and messaging protection features are available now to Semantic Intelligence customers who have purchased the Enterprise license.

Overall, with Concentric, organizations can address unmet data security needs by discovering and protecting business-critical content. The company strives to protect intellectual property, financial documents, PII/PCI content, customer data, confidential business data and more, in on-premises and cloud data stores, as well as messaging and communication.

The Concentric Semantic Intelligence Data Security and Governance solution uses deep learning and risk distance analysis to accurately categorize data, assess risk, and resolve security issues – without relying on up-front rules or a complex setup.
