Data governance and compliance requirements are growing in regulated industries, due to the accelerating frequency and scope of data breaches. Big data presents tremendous challenges for those responsible for maintaining regulatory compliance and adhering to data sovereignty regulations. As traditional data repositories with strictly defined rules morph into data lakes filled with a chaotic mix of data, controlling access to sensitive information becomes increasingly unwieldy. And with more users leveraging and processing the data, the resulting outputs themselves have varying levels of sensitivity. These activities make it difficult to perform compliance functions when data is constantly changing, moving between locations, and being accessed by many users.
NuCypher provides data-centric security that follows the data wherever it goes. It integrates with your existing security policies to bring data lakes into compliance with both internal standards and regulations such as GDPR, HIPAA, HITECH, and PCI. With granular encryption, users can only decrypt the specific slices of data which they are allowed to access. Finally, security professionals can restrict access to sensitive data while freeing it when needed to deliver business insights.
