As more and more businesses take advantage of the promise of big data, they’re also putting themselves at increased risk of a security breach. They can protect themselves and their data by centralizing it in one location.
Data centralization: The new norm? Yes!
In order to best secure your data, it needs to be centralized.
By breaking down the data silos and centralizing your data, it’s possible to increase visibility across your organization, which is critical for those real-time insights and decisions that drive business success and establish competitive edge.
Data centralization enables business to protect each separate data point and element. Each data point can be tagged with specific attributes that regulate access by user, location, device, etc. That data can then be tracked as it travels in and out of your organization with the pre-set attributes attached to it. It’s like putting a password-protected GPS on your data.
Keep in mind that implementing this new process of data tagging and centralization isn’t an overnight process. It takes time and close collaboration between IT and the business units. Security teams need to work closely with employees across the business to provide the tools they need to publish and consume data while also ensuring it is protected, audited and logged. This collaboration is crucial because it is the employees who truly understand the value and the necessary security classification for each data point, file or folder.
Despite the work involved, data centralization has real and tangible benefits for the business. Businesses who adopt these models find the outcomes to be extremely valuable. It allows them to work closely with employees and break down organizational hierarchies, which leads to greater collaboration across the organization, and, at the same time, secures data and reduces overall risk.
Hence Data Centralization helps organization create a paperless environment and save a huge amount on paper inventory and transportation, creating a PAPERLESS ENVIRONMENT and indirectly helps in preserving the nature.
