How important is Data Security Posture Management (DSPM)?

The rapid adoption of cloud computing, agile development practices, AI, and ML has redefined data security.

Cloud computing offers scalability and flexibility but brings challenges like data sovereignty, multi-tenant vulnerabilities, and shared responsibility. Agile practices speed up software delivery but may lead to insufficient security testing. AI and ML are revolutionary but can be exploited for cyber-attacks if not well-secured.

Traditional data security technologies, designed for static on-premises environments, struggle to adapt to these dynamic infrastructures. This misalignment increases the risk of breaches and complicates regulatory compliance.

One of the data risks today is data visibility. In cloud and hybrid environments, data is often dispersed across various platforms, applications, and geographies. This dispersion can lead to blind spots where data exists but is not adequately monitored or protected.  

DevOps teams frequently create numerous data stores for testing purposes. These secondary data stores, created quickly to meet development deadlines, may bypass standard security protocols and audits, leaving critical data vulnerable.

Data Security Posture Management (DSPM) is more important than ever because it is a part of a multi-layered data security approach. This approach protects data at various levels and stages, combining preventive, detective, and corrective controls.

DSPM provides visibility into an organization’s data security status for real-time risk assessment and management. It monitors data assets, identifies misconfigurations, and complies with security policies. Each security layer functions effectively and cohesively because DSPM identifies vulnerabilities before they can be exploited.

However, DSPM is not enough to control your cryptographic security posture. It helps organizations identify their data location, but they need something beyond this basic necessity. They need to know how well their data is encrypted and if there are any discrepancies with your policies or security best practices. Fortanix Key Insight offers this solution. Read more here.
