“Combining Microsoft’s native information protection tools with expansive third-party platforms, like Spirion, provides customers with end-to-end coverage across their data estate.”
Spirion goes beyond simply securing data from unauthorized access at the perimeter by accurately identifying and classifying sensitive, private, and regulated data where it lives—at the database and individual data record level—so it can be stored, protected, and used in the safest, most compliant means possible.
“Today’s enterprises feature complex IT landscapes that spread sensitive and personal information beyond their primary environments, leading security professionals to look at new, holistic methods of information protection that reach beyond vendor-specific capabilities,” said Tom Palomaki, Chief Customer Officer at Spirion. “Spirion extends the security perimeter for Microsoft customers with platform-agnostic, enterprise-grade data discovery, classification, and remediation capabilities that enable them to better preserve both the privacy and the security of data in support of regulatory compliance, corporate policies, and customer expectations.”
