By Analyst(s): Joerg Fritsch, Brian Lowans, David Mahdi

Key findings

checkbox-dark     The relentless pace of business activity is creating a significant challenge for the data security team. Organizations are challenged by having to secure data that is constantly transposed by digital processes and business ecosystems spanning storage silos on-premises and in the cloud.
checkbox-dark     Most organizations have outdated policies, frameworks and obsolete tooling which prevents them from leveraging their data and is leading to growing risks of data compromise.
checkbox-dark     Patchworks of use case and silo-specific security controls are resulting in security and risk management (SRM) leaders struggling to understand the capabilities and limitations.
checkbox-dark     This complexity is encouraging vendors to rapidly amalgamate disparate data security capabilities into data security platforms. Organizations applying these newer platforms are securing their data better and more easily.
