As a cloud company operating in the space of financial services, dealing with sensitive customer data is not a rare occurrence for Ocrolus. The company processes and stores sensitive data every day. In fact, data is the driving force behind their product and thus, they will do everything they possibly can to protect it.
Before using Polar, detecting, classifying, and labeling cloud data was so time-consuming and costly for Ocrolus, it was impossible to maintain on a regular basis. Now, the whole process has become completely automated. The Polar platform allows Ocrolus’ security team to view an automatically and continuously updated data inventory and map all sensitive data.
In addition, security team members can always use the “Live Map” feature to track data flows and highlight anomalous ones. Overall, Polar enables Ocrolus to focus on the things that matter the most; data vulnerabilities and compliance violations.
There are a lot of cloud security solutions out there. Some handle misconfigurations in the cloud infrastructure, some tackle compliance and privacy, and some focus on access risks. However, there are no other solutions which unify and automate data discovery, classification, data flow mapping, and remediation of exposed sensitive data into one platform.
Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) solutions, for example, simply lack the data context. They cannot answer the data questions Ocrolus cares about, like: “what sensitive data do we have?”, “where is it stored?”, “how is the data flowing”, “is it exposed?”, etc.
Polar’s solution doesn’t replace CSPM solutions, it compliments them in a way that adds the most important layer of security, a data-centric layer which focuses strictly on data security, best practices, and compliance. Something, as noted, other solutions simply cannot do.
“Working with the technical team at Polar has been a pleasure. The team has always shown a great level of professionalism and service, from the very beginning, through the entire PoC process, and into today.“
Completely eliminates the need for manual operations. The data inventory is being automatically and continuously updated, allowing the company to move forward with development at their desired speed, without sacrificing security
Polar allows Ocrolus to monitor what 3rd-parties they have in their environment and whether these have access to sensitive data
Not a single datastore goes unnoticed. Whenever someone on the team has a question or concern about data - all they have to do is open the Polar platform and look at the relevant dashboard
Polar monitors data movement and data access in real time and provides the team at Ocrolus with actionable insights whenever something goes wrong
