Gartner recognizes Dig in latest DSPM report

By 2026, more than 20% of organizations will deploy DSPM technology, due to the urgent requirements to identify and locate previously unknown data repositories and to mitigate associated security and privacy risks.

In today's digital landscape, data is proliferating across cloud service platforms (CSPs) and geographic boundaries, making it difficult for organizations to keep track of where their data is located and who has access to it. The need for solutions that can efficiently identify previously unknown data and classify both structured and unstructured data across CSPs is more critical than ever. The recent Gartner report, "Innovation Insight: Data Security Posture Management," (license required) highlights this growing need and recommends implementing a data security posture management (DSPM) solution, like Dig Security's.

What’s changed?

The move to the cloud has accelerated business innovation processes but also created a huge data sprawl that cannot be addressed with the existing solutions: traditional data leak prevention (DLP) tools are not fit to address the amount and scale of cloud data, nor can they discover data hiding in unmanaged stores also known as “shadow data”; In addition, cloud providers native solutions lack a multi-cloud approach which is no longer enough in today’s enterprise data landscape. Moreover, the recent rise of CSPM solutions has underlined the need for a data centric approach to address the problem.


DSPM tools were designed to provide the visibility and control needed to address data in today’s multi cloud environments by providing the following capabilities:

  1. Perform discovery and classification of all the data assets that exist in the organization cloud. Identify shadow data assets containing sensitive information that should be carefully tracked and protected.
  2. Analyze data assets to identify risks of sensitive data exposure by highlighting data misconfigurations, access anomalies, and data vulnerabilities that increase the risk of a data breach if not remediated. 
  3. Prioritize all data related issues based on the context of the data (who access the data, where and when), as well as how and where the data is flowing. Remediating data risk is highly important, but unless prioritized it could lead to “alert fatigue” and will cause a security setback.

Why Dig Security:

Dig Security is a cloud native DSPM solution. Dig offers an agentless, multi-cloud data security platform that automatically discovers and classifies your client information to protect it from security and compliance risks on all cloud services, including AWS, Azure, GCP, and Snowflake.

Dig data security platform takes DSPM one step further by combining DSPM’s static risk identification with real-time data detection and response (DDR). DDR focuses on real-time monitoring, detection, and response. It provides dynamic monitoring on top of the static defense layers provided by DSPM tools. 

Why Now?

The importance of data in the ability of the organization to grow faster is undeniable. But keeping the data secure, avoiding breaches and maintaining regulatory compliance is challenging. DSPM+DDR can prevent shadow data assets, ransomware, data exfiltration, data misuse and compliance breaches.
