What Does Data Security Software Do?
Whether your organization handles medical records, financial information, or controlled government data, most organizations today have one thing in common: they all create, transfer, and store sensitive data. Not only that, but because of the sharp rise in hybrid work environments and remote workforces, the sensitive data these organizations possess now often moves well outside the bounds of a corporate network, making perimeter-based security models and solutions more and more obsolete.
Data security software ideally helps organizations gain more insight and control over their data, maintain regulatory compliance (be it CUI, GDPR, HIPAA, PCI DSS, etc.) and protect their data against breaches and/or attacks. Unfortunately, in many cases, organizations are forced to implement data security software solutions from several different vendors, making their security plans too complex to manage, unnecessarily expensive, and difficult to audit. In addition, some of these solutions focus too much on securing a corporate perimeter (which may not even exist) rather than securing organizations’ data itself. In comparison, Fortra takes a more modern, business-friendly approach to data security software.
Why Choose Fortra Data Security Software Suite
If an organization's goal is to increase visibility over data and to keep that data protected throughout its entire life cycle, that often means it's necessary to create a layered data security plan with multiple solutions in place. While a modern, layered security plan will help to increase data visibility and security, that doesn't mean it will be conducive to sustainable business operations. You may find that one of your newest data security software solutions is causing disruptions in your employees' workflows, it isn't compatible with one of your most-used applications, or it doesn't integrate well with an existing solution.
Whatever the case may be, Fortra's data security software suite is integrated and automated, protects your data regardless of your current IT infrastructure, and is flexible enough to cover virtually any data security need. Rather than being a fixed, “silver-bullet” solution or a solution that simply fills checkboxes, here's what sets our data security software apart from the pack:
Perimeter-based data security is becoming an increasingly unrealistic means of protecting your sensitive data from modern threats. Rather than risking your data becoming vulnerable to a perimeter breach, our software solutions protect the data itself regardless of whether it's stored in the cloud or on-premises. Those protections follow the data wherever it travels.
There is no single silver-bullet solution that can address all your security needs, but a layered security plan that integrates multiple solutions can provide comprehensive security. Coordinating integrations between several security vendors is normally quite troublesome, but our security experts at Fortra understand the dotted lines between our product integrations, making the overall user experience, troubleshooting, and support a breeze.
Your data security solutions should give you the utmost control and visibility over your sensitive data, but they should never come at the expense of smooth business operations. Our software solutions are made to integrate with your existing workflows, applications, and other already-existing infrastructure, as well as to automate repetitive security protocols and processes.
