by Josh Anderson
NEW YORK, NY & TEL AVIV, ISRAEL — BigID, a leader in personal data protection and privacy, has earned Advanced Partner status with the Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN). With BigID, AWS customers can automatically perform discovery across the data estate at scale, index and inventory personal information by identity, and operationalize privacy compliance mandates, such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).
BigID’s official press release notes that as more organizations migrate data to the cloud, it has become more and more critical for such organizations to know what data they have, who it belongs to, and document how that data is being processed, shared or exposed. By achieving APN Advanced Partner status, BigID makes it easier to provide organizations a global view of their data across the data center, SaaS, and AWS environments, including AWS S3, Dynamo, Redshift, EMR, RDS, Aurora, and Athena. Further, BigID improves detection of privacy violations based on policy orchestration and delivers privacy intelligence input to drive automated actions by AWS enforcement points.
“With today’s evolving data privacy regulations, companies must protect and manage their most critical asset – customer data – or face devastating consequences,” said Nimrod Vax, Chief Product Officer for BigID. “The only way to fully safeguard data and comply with privacy regulations is with a data-driven approach. As an Advanced Partner with Amazon Web Services Partner Network, BigID is becoming an integral component of the privacy stack and helping organizations better build, manage and secure their big data implementations.”
BigID’s signature platform leverages machine learning and identity intelligence to transform the way that enterprises protect and manage the privacy of personal data.
