This partnership empowers organizations with better visibility and automation to address privacy regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Customers can leverage BigID’s discovery foundation with the Alation Data Catalog: discovering, tagging and mapping sensitive and regulated data for accelerated governance.
This expanded partnership between BigID and Alation enables organizations to:
- Enforce business and privacy compliance policies
- Scale data discovery and automate cataloging across all data sources
- Accelerate governance and stewardship of sensitive data sets
- Reduce data silos with a unified inventory
- Resolve conflicting data policies ensuring more accurate enforcement
“The partnership between BigID and Alation is a natural fit. We provide the foundational discovery and privacy insight necessary to translate policy into the technical identification of data – while Alation enables customers to scale privacy-centric governance and automate data stewardship for all their data. Together, we empower users with the ability to take action at the time of execution,” said William Murphy, Alliances and Business Development, BigID.
“With the Alation and BigID partnership, data stewards and governance teams can scale and automate processes for data privacy. Now, instead of legal, privacy and governance teams manually identifying and tagging entity identification data, policy guidance is automatically applied to data at the point of analysis — ensuring more accurate, timely and compliant data use,” said Kiran Narsu, Vice President, Business Development, Alation.
