Data Access Governance is about making access to data exclusive. It’s about limiting the number of people who have access to data – and their permissions to data – to the lowest levels possible.

Stealthbits’ Data Access Governance solution discovers where your data lives and then classifies, monitors, and remediates the conditions that make managing data access so difficult in the first place. The result is effective governance that promotes security, compliance, and operational efficiency.

    The Problem with Data Access Governance

    Data is the primary target In virtually every breach scenario – and protecting data gets harder every day. While there are many challenges Administrators face in the management and security of their various data repositories, there are some common denominators that ultimately make managing data access so problematic.

    Access rights are already massively overprovisioned, and when mixed with a high degree of management complexity and a plethora of hidden and unknown risks, it’s no wonder why data stores like file shares and databases are so difficult to control and susceptible to attack. As if security concerns weren’t enough, stringent compliance requirements demand something be done to secure sensitive data of all types. But how do organizations approach a problem so big and complex?
