What is Data Security Posture Management (DSPM)?

DSPM, or Data Security Posture Management addresses the evolving challenges of securing data in the cloud. Unlike traditional Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), DSPM recognizes that not all data requires the same level of protection. It focuses on understanding the value and sensitivity of data, employing Machine Learning to determine appropriate security measures. 

Data in the cloud is dynamic, constantly moving, and getting replicated across various environments, which can lead to inconsistencies in security posture. DSPM classifies data’s security and tracks it as it moves across environments. Its key capabilities include data classification, if data is encrypted, access control, data loss prevention (DLP), and anomaly detection. 

DSPM provides actionable insights by sending alerts, suggesting how to match the security posture of the original environment, and identifying data owners. 

Unlike CSPM, which primarily focuses on infrastructure vulnerabilities, DSPM identifies data vulnerabilities such as exposed Personally Identifiable Information (PII), developer secrets, or privileged data with inadequate security measures. 

In reducing the attack surface, DSPM works differently from CSPM. While CSPM focuses on the remediation of misconfigurations and vulnerabilities in infrastructure, DSPM reduces risk by safeguarding vulnerable and valuable data. It achieves this by ensuring data stays in designated secure locations and reducing attack paths, even in infrastructure breaches. 

DSPMs offer broader visibility than CSPMs, extending to various data stores or cloud-native databases. Despite the need to handle vast amounts of data, DSPMs utilize smart metadata clustering to provide comprehensive security without significantly increasing cloud costs.
