2018 RSAC Innovation Sandbox Winner Improving Privacy Protection Ahead of the Introduction of GDPR

NEW YORK and TEL AVIV – May 7, 2018BigID Inc., a leader in personal data protection and privacy, today announced it has been named a Cool Vendor in the Gartner Cool Vendors in Privacy Management, 2018 report. The report recognizes vendors with “new combinations of capabilities and functions, and applications of new technology that enhance privacy protection and support the privacy management program.” 

As organizations face the requirements of emerging regulations like the EU’s GDPR, the need for technology solutions that support the discovery, management and protection of customer and employee data has never been greater. According to Gartner1, “Awareness of privacy risk as well as of the need to comply with strengthened regulatory requirements worldwide has driven technology and service providers (TSPs) to create new solutions and integration options for various capabilities.”

The BigID platform leverages machine learning and identity intelligence to transform how enterprises protect and manage the privacy of personal data. Through data-driven inventory and mapping, BigID enables the automation and fulfillment of GDPR Data Subject Access Requests and Article 30 Record Keeping amongst other GDPR requirements.

“Privacy and personal data protection is a defining 21st century problem. With GDPR upon us and data privacy scandals making headlines week after week, companies have never been under greater pressure to protect and manage the privacy of their customer and employee data,” said Dimitri Sirota, CEO at BigID. “However, effectively safeguarding data requires a data-driven approach beyond historical spreadsheets and surveys. We believe our inclusion in the Gartner Cool Vendors in Privacy Management, 2018 report is reflective of the changing priority and rethinking around privacy protection beyond just policy and process.”
