BigID, the leading data security, compliance, privacy and governance platform, today announced a breakthrough in data cleansing with the launch of its industry’s first ML-based solution for finding duplicate and similar data content. The innovative technology uses breakthrough AI to locate both similar and duplicate data in each data set, allowing organizations to easily identify duplicate data as well as redundant, outdated, or trivial (ROT) data. These transformative capabilities mean organizations can reduce storage costs, accelerate compliance, and improve cybersecurity across their environment.
Duplicate and redundant data is a treasure trove for cybercriminals – exponentially increasing the risk of data leaks, data breaches and compromised data. By reducing the attack surface and reducing duplicate and redundant data, organizations can improve system hygiene, reduce insider risk, and derive more value from their data.
With BigID’s powerful data minimization and cleansing capabilities, organizations can now automatically find duplicate data quickly and delete it according to retention policies – enabling full data lifecycle management for all their data, anywhere. Not only does this help reduce risk and improve security posture, but it also saves time and resources that would otherwise be spent sorting through large amounts of data manually.
With BigID’s data minimization capabilities, organizations can:
Identify duplicate, similar, and redundant data quickly and accurately
Automatic detection of dark data and shadow data
Manage and mitigate your data by type, sensitivity and policy
Implement data retention and fix duplicate, sensitive and redundant data
Deleted data that is no longer needed
Streamline data lifecycle management from ingestion to destruction
“Data minimization is critical to any data management strategy, and BigID’s ML-powered solution makes it easier and faster than ever,” said Dimitri Sirota, CEO of BigID. “By automating the process of identifying and deleting duplicate data, we help our customers reduce their risk and improve their overall security posture.”
The ML-powered solution is a key component of BigID’s comprehensive data management platform, which provides a range of capabilities including data discovery, classification, compliance, risk management, privacy and governance.
