Partnership Gives Data Visibility Back to Businesses Navigating Hybrid Cloud Environments
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., – October 11, 2022 – Symmetry Systems, the industry’s first hybrid cloud data security platform, today announced its partnership with Trace3, a premier provider of IT solutions and consultation services, to expand the company’s flagship solution, DataGuard, into new markets. The partnership will enable joint customers to experience holistic data security whether they operate on-prem or within AWS, GCP, or Azure, while benefiting from cutting-edge research and insights provided by the Trace3 Innovation Research Group.
Today’s hybrid cloud environment creates an incredibly challenging arena for organizations to protect their sensitive data. Users, developers, supply-chain vendors, and contractors all receive data through a web of static infrastructure and cloud applications that legacy control solutions are not equipped to analyze and continuously monitor. DataGuard brings confidence to an organization’s data security posture management (DSPM) through easy deployment, automated discovery, and seamless integration into the company’s current tool stack. After initial analysis, DataGuard is able to surface unknown exposure points in the form of excessive or dormant privileges that were inviting unnecessary risk into the organization.
“In the data access governance space, Symmetry DataGuard differentiates itself with its ability to analyze data objects and identities previously missed by traditional solutions so security teams can accurately contextualize the risk of the data in their environment,” said Katherine Walther, VP, Innovation at Trace3. “We look forward to bringing this innovative approach to our clients and organizations who still find themselves grappling to find efficient and effective ways to meet data security policies and compliance regulations.”
“Organizations trust Trace3 to bring innovative technology to bear down on hard problems — like hybrid-cloud security or data residency with Symmetry today,” said Mohit Tiwari, CEO and Co-Founder, Symmetry Systems. “Symmetry DataGuard makes data flows visible – this helps organizations build data flow policies that cut across security posture, detection, and response – while moving compliance away from spreadsheets and into hard evidence. Trace3 has already been an incredible go-to-market accelerator for Symmetry, and we are proud to make a dent on one of the hardest problems in all of security — how to help organizations drive value from data while being trusted custodians of their customers’ data.”
