Concept: California’s cybersecurity company Seclore has rolled out its data-centric security platform (DCSP) that enables organizations to discover, classify, protect, and track enterprise data both within and outside the organization’s boundaries. Seclore claims that the new DCSP enables enterprises to shift their security posture from infrastructure to data.
Nature of Disruption: DCSP enables organizations to unify data-centric security solutions with existing enterprise systems to address limitations in various data protection point solutions. Its framework automates the protection of documents as they are discovered, classified, downloaded, and shared ensuring that sensitive information is consistently protected without impacting collaboration workflow. The platform removes imitations of point solutions including data loss protection, cloud access security broker, data classification, and rights management to ensure complete protection, tracking, and revocation of access to sensitive data. It simplifies operations by leveraging enterprise content management, file shares, email, enterprise file synchronization and sharing, and enterprise resource planning (ERP) to protect documents automatically. The platform can also help enterprises to solve data privacy issues. It also provides cloud data security that protects the data as it travels through various public cloud systems without solely relying on the cloud service provider’s security posture.
Outlook: The rapidly shifting workplace environment increases the risk of data breaches. Also, a remote working environment requires sharing of data through various cloud platforms which can increase the risk of data security. Seclore claims its DCSP enables enterprises to secure their crucial data sets as it moves across the workflow value chain. In May 2022, the company raised $27 million in a Series C funding round. Seclore aims to use the funding to expand the geographic presence of the company and expand its headcount globally.
