Real-time security, visibility and control over personal data. Simplify GDPR compliance.

May 2018 will see the coming into force of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This new regulation, aimed at improving data protection and treatment, will force all organizations without exception to strengthen the security of all the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) they store and/or process, especially data held, used or transmitted on employees’ and collaborators’ devices.

WHY DO YOU NEED TO PROTECT YOUR ORGANIZATION’S PERSONAL AND SENSITIVE DATA?
Companies must ready themselves to comply with GDPR, which comes into force in May 2018 and will bring with it ‘dissuasive’ fines of up to 20 million euros or 4 percent of a company’s global annual turnover, whichever is greater, in the event of breach.

The GDPR will impact all companies, industries and regions, including those outside the EU, which collect and store personal data of any EU citizens. Also, companies must be ready to avoid the reputational damage caused by a data leak, and its negative effects on the confidence of employees as well as current and potential customers. Organizations are facing some major challenges to comply with the upcoming regulation. Mainly, they need to be able to:

• Reduce the proliferation of uncontrolled and unstructured data. Unstructured data held on servers as well as on employees’ and collaborators’ (partners, consultants, etc.) endpoints and devices makes up roughly 80 percent of all business related data. As the volume of unstructured data doubles every year, so does the risk posed to businesses¹.

• Fight off the exponential increase in exfiltration cases. The number of cases where poorly managed and secured data is exhilarated from computing systems is increasing every day. Often the affected organization is not even aware that this is happening. These data thefts are usually due to external attacks, malicious insiders driven by lucrative objectives or revenge, or simply negligence.

THE SOLUTION: PANDA DATA CONTROL

Data Control is a data security module fully integrated into the Panda Adaptive Defense platform. Data Control is designed to assist organizations in complying with data protection regulations, as well as discovering and protecting personal and sensitive data both in real time and throughout its lifecycle on endpoints and servers. Panda Data Control discovers, audits and monitors unstructured² personal data on endpoints: from data at rest to data in use and data in motion.
