AUSTIN, TEXAS AND PITTSBURGH, PA (PRWEB) AUGUST 03, 2020
Lepide and Sherpa Software are pleased to announce that they have entered into a global strategic partnership, combining Lepide’s disruptive, scalable, enterprise Data Security Platform with Sherpa’s award-winning data governance, classification, remediation and e-discovery platform.
With increasing overlap between data security and governance initiatives, Lepide recognized the need to incorporate powerful and accurate content scanning and e-discovery into their suite of security solutions. Sherpa brings the ability to quickly identify, inventory, and remediate data that may pose a GDPR or CCPA regulatory risk when it is contained in disparate data silos such as email, Windows workstations, file shares and more.
Lepide brings to the partnership the ability to identify who has access to this regulated data and whether user behavior may pose a risk to your compliance standing and to the security of your data in general. Through a combination of threshold and real-time alerting, Lepide can inform users when their permissions are escalating and enable you to reverse them so that you can maintain a Zero Trust policy with your most sensitive data. On top of that, AI-backed anomaly spotting technology establishes a baseline for “normal” user behavior and will sound the alarm when activities deviate from this norm.
Combining Sherpa and Lepide within your infrastructure will enable you to locate and classify your most sensitive data as per compliance regulations, ensure only the right people have access to it and that user activity is in line with compliance and security policies.
“The Sherpa partnership really excites us,” said Aidan Simister, CEO of Lepide. “Lepide and Sherpa ultimately have the same goal; namely, being a valuable partner to enterprises in helping them to manage and secure their sensitive data. Together, we will be able to provide all of the capabilities that enterprises will need to get more visibility over exactly what’s happening with their sensitive data.”
“Both companies have the same mission, to protect sensitive data to reduce risk and meet compliance requirements,” said Kevin Ogrodnik, CEO of Sherpa Software. “With Lepide, now we can also monitor for and remediate risky user behavior that may expose that data.”
