We’re thrilled to share that Forrester Research has named BigID as a leader in privacy management software in The Forrester Wave™: Privacy Management Software, Q4 2023, noting that “BigID is a strategic partner for customers, for and beyond privacy.”
BigID received the highest possible scores in 16 criteria, with differentiated ratings across personal data discovery, data classification, personal data governance, emerging tech risk identification, support & customer service, ease of use, alongside 9 other criteria.
The Forrester report highlights that “when privacy decision-makers think about skills to hire for now, it is a mix of IT, data security, privacy engineering, and data management. That’s because today’s privacy management needs the ability to observe data as it moves across systems and enforce data controls effectively. “
While privacy risk assessments and consent management are components of core privacy requirements, they are ”only part — possibly the easiest part — of the challenge,” the report notes, and “For privacy to benefit the business, it’s necessary that privacy, risk, and security pros have the tools and the expertise required to meet these new challenges.”
Forrester noted that,
BigID offers some of the best options for automated data discovery, classification, and data flow maps, as well as a range of controls (such as data retention, deletion, and de-identification) that users can provision and enforce through the platform,” and that “[BigID’s] vision remains anchored to the mission of empowering organizations to assess and manage data risks before they become an issue. Its risk management aspect is married to an accurate understanding of data, which sets organizations up for success on their data strategies.
Furthermore, BigID received the top score – the only vendor in the evaluation to achieve this – in personal data discovery, personal data classification, and automation.
“It’s more critical than ever for organizations to be able to put security and privacy first – whether that’s a part of adopting AI to drive innovation, implement proactive security, or to continue to foster trust with their customers,” said Dimitri Sirota, CEO and co-founder of BigID. “As organizations continue to adapt to the evolving regulatory landscape, BigID’s platform enables them to take a data-driven, automated approach to their data privacy initiatives, security programs, AI governance, and more – across their entire tech stack and data ecosystem.
