If your organization is expanding its footprint in the cloud — be it applications, services, and storage — the level of difficulty to manage this footprint has probably increased by the same magnitude as your migration efforts. We’re in the midst of a new era of cloud adoption in which multi cloud management and security are paramount on top of the work involved with migration. Unfortunately, supporting tools haven’t kept pace with the speed of this digital transformation. As a result, the burden has shifted to IT teams. Chances are, your IT team is struggling to maintain an accurate picture of what your organization has in the cloud — and where it’s located.

Adopting a cloud-first mentality has led to a proliferation of data across multi-cloud environments. IT teams typically leverage manual, painstaking methods to discover and maintain an accurate picture of data in the cloud — especially sensitive data.

Worst of all, they rely on a patchwork of tools that traditionally lack proper cloud coverage to get the job done. IT ends up spending more time on administrative tasks than strategic ones that could better serve their business.

To help alleviate these challenges, we’re excited to introduce BigID’s  Auto Discovery Apps — customers can  automatically discover and configure data sources in the cloud wherever they live, including AWS, GCP, and Azure.

Automatically discover data sources in the cloud with BigID

The Auto Discovery apps allow organizations to onboard cloud data sources faster than ever before. Connect to your cloud account, and BigID automatically discovers all new, updated, and deleted data sources within a particular cloud environment.

In addition, the application allows users to create, update, and delete corresponding data sources directly within the BigID console. This enables organizations to completely eliminate manual efforts to search for, configure, and connect data sources across their cloud environment — saving countless hours.

Get up and running in minutes

The Auto Discovery app is fully automated:  automate API calls, and schedule the app to run on a recurring basis, ensuring that the data sources captured are accurate and up-to-date.

As part of the onboarding process, the app can send email notifications to data source owners about the discovery and creation of data sources — and users can also configure the application to do a test connection.

The test connection capability provides further assurance that the created data sources are actually working, eliminating yet another manual task. After running a test connection, users can pinpoint the root cause of connection errors through a detailed success/failure report for each run — and fix the issues.
