In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

1. Since 2006, thousands of organizations worldwide have reduced their personal data footprint and proactively minimized the risks, costs, and reputational damage of successful cyberattacks and regulatory violations. Today, Spirion protects the identity of over 50 million people across all industries around the world.

2. Spirion is focused on the root cause of data risk, bringing unrivaled depth, breadth and accuracy to bear. In fact, we build and deliver the most accurate data discovery and classification solutions on the market for the simple reason that enterprises cannot protect what they cannot find; and when it comes to data privacy, “good enough” just doesn’t cut it. Both independent, third-party test labs and customers have benchmarked Spirion’s ability to detect personal data with 98% accuracy and the lowest false-positive rates in the industry. Fewer false-positives reduce personal data footprint and make combing through the data exponentially more productive, allowing customers to focus on the real problems.

3.Data discovery and classification are an ongoing challenge because data is dynamic (increasing exponentially every day). Spirion’s proprietary algorithms, content awareness, and contextual analysis capabilities discover, classify, and operationalize enterprise data. Rules-based automation automatically and accurately examines, identifies, and tags data sensitivity – including redundant, obsolete, and trivial data and performs remediation actions to prevent compromise and misuse. As a result, organizations gain greater visibility into their personal data footprint, reduce risk exposure, and facilitate compliance with data protection laws and regulations.

Brief Overview

Today’s information proliferation leads to data blindness, limiting organizations’ visibility into where the sensitive and personal information of their customers, employees, and community may reside across the enterprise. To retain and maintain customers’ trust, organizations must focus on both cyber and privacy risk – the intersection where true data privacy management lies—to prevent personal data compromise and misuse that can quickly escalate from a security incident to a major breach.

Spirion sits squarely at this crossroads and has created a solution where many least expect it: before the firewall. The company exists to protect what matters the most: the sensitive and sensitive personal information of colleagues, customers and communities.

We do this by putting data discovery and purposeful classification at the front-end of enterprise privacy, security and compliance programs to quickly and automatically discover, classify, and remediate almost any form of personal, sensitive or regulated data anywhere.

Spirion provides an effective foundation for data privacy protection through automated, accurate and contextual discovery of structured and unstructured data; persistent and purposeful classification; automated, real-time risk remediation; and powerful analytics and dashboards to give organizations greater visibility into their most at-risk data and assets.

Spirion strengthens an organization’s ability to automatically identify their core personal data, where it is stored, who has access, and when it was last used, while preventing its unauthorized distribution. It provides an essential first step in controlling the sprawl of sensitive data by effectively shrinking and labeling an organization’s data footprint to improve its security position. This not only better enables organizations to keep track of their regulated data in all forms and locations, on-premise or in the cloud, but is vital to ensuring their accurate and timely compliance with expanding privacy laws and regulations.
