Data security continues to be top-of-mind for organizations, as cloud adoption, breach costs, and regulation increase. To protect sensitive data within the ever-increasing number of applications and services, organizations need a solution that’s simple and effective. Nightfall’s developer platform empowers developers to discover, classify, and protect sensitive data across a broad set of use cases:

  • Inspect content anywhere, in any data silo or data flow.
  • Add DLP and data classification capabilities to SaaS applications.
  • Detect and de-identify PII, PCI, PHI, credentials & secrets, custom data types, and more.
  • Build compliance workflows for HIPAA, PCI, GDPR, CCPA, FedRAMP, and more.

“We’ve seen firsthand that building high-quality data classification and protection is complex and challenging. It involves training and tuning detectors, parsing files and unstructured data, deploying and scaling machine learning models, and handling immense data scale,” said Isaac Madan, chief executive officer of Nightfall. “We’re excited to deliver an end-to-end set of APIs for content inspection. Nightfall handles data protection so developers can focus on building great products.”
