Datadog Launches Service to Protect Sensitive Data and Assist with Compliance Requirements
Logs are often a major source of unintentional sensitive data exposure and leaks in enterprise and consumer applications. This opens organizations to legal, financial and privacy risks, and protecting such data requires significant financial and time investments.
"As we migrate our critical infrastructure and applications to the cloud, security and data protection have been a major focus," said
"It can take days, weeks or even months for a company's security or compliance teams to identify exposed data and escalate for remediation, leaving them out of compliance and at risk of significant data breaches. This is especially true for large engineering organizations where hundreds of services are being managed and teams are constantly changing," said
Sensitive Data Scanner delivers:
- Identification of sensitive data in customer logs using a library of preconfigured and user-defined rules for dozens of sensitive data patterns, including cloud provider secret keys and credit card information;
- Classification of sensitive data with searchable tags, as well as the ability to create custom classification strategies;
- Protection of sensitive data through data scrubbing and hashing for correlation or auditing purposes.
Sensitive Data Scanner is generally available today for Log Management customers. For more information, please visit: https://www.datadoghq.com/product/sensitive-data-scanner/.
