Gartner® Innovation Insights: Data Security Posture Management (DSPM)

Data lives everywhere in your organization, whether you know about it or not. And the legacy tools that many use to manage data are often siloed, meaning you may need to navigate between multiple tools to get a true understanding of your data footprint.


Modern tools that focus on data security posture management help you understand and uncover where your sensitive data is—in the cloud, on prem, or anywhere in between. They can deliver data maps that can expose data drift from expectations, discover sensitive data risks, and help remediate issues like overly-permissive access or sensitive data kept in unknown or insecure places.


Read this report from Gartner® that highlights some of the key capabilities needed in a DSPM and how to track data through its entire lifecycle, from collection or creation, to storage, use, retention, and destruction.
