Cognigo, a global leader in Cognitive Data governance and security, announced today a collaboration with Microsoft AIP (NASDAQ: MSFT) to protect organizations from data breaches by classifying all data assets, both structured and unstructured, on-premises and in the cloud, automatically and at scale.
The partnership enables organizations to gain visibility and investigate how users use data, resulting in human-free data protection and GDPR readiness, right inside Microsoft Azure Information Protection suite.
Cognigo's DataSense and Microsoft AIP provide a comprehensive human-free data protection through Cognitive Computing. It maps every bit of your data to discover the undiscoverable, enforces data accountability and protects sensitive assets.
DataSense is the only solution that provides data-agnostic Supervised and Unsupervised categorization, data clustering, structured and unstructured data fusion, AI-driven Personal Data recognition, searchable index, and an actionable policy center. From a compliance perspective, this integration is a crucial factor in achieving "security by default" as required by the EU GDPR.
"Microsoft is a tech giant that invests over $1B on data security. We were astonished by their speed and willingness to invest in innovation," said Guy Leibovitz, Founder and CEO of Cognigo. "In today's world, data is the new currency. Protecting it requires joining forces between different vendors - now more than ever. We are looking forward to partnering with Microsoft and keep bringing more value to our clients."
"We are looking forward to bringing MIP SDK to market with our collaborations," said Kartik Kanakasabesan, Principal Program Manager Azure Information Protection in the official release from Microsoft.
