Spirion has announced the release of its new SaaS platform, Data Privacy Manager. The new cloud platform builds upon Spirion’s proven architecture implemented on-premise by thousands of businesses, agencies and universities to protect the privacy of more than 50 million individuals.

The launch aligns with Spirion’s holistic Data Privacy Management Framework. The company’s framework describes a persistent approach to help enterprises prioritise and protect what matters most―by accurately discovering and classifying sensitive data, understanding the data within the context of their business and taking actions to control the data so they can operate with minimal friction and comply with regulations designed to protect personal data privacy.

Gartner estimates that “before year-end 2023, more than 80% of companies worldwide will face at least one privacy-focused data protection regulation.” Further, Gartner recommends that “security and risk management (SRM) leaders who focus on technology, information and resilience risk should be proactive by adopting governance agility instead of responding to each jurisdictional challenge. To get ahead of the curve, build a holistic and adaptive privacy program that scales across the organisation.”

“Spirion builds and delivers the most accurate data discovery and classification solutions available, giving enterprises an actionable foundation for their data and security initiatives,” said Kevin Coppins, President and CEO of Spirion. “With the cloud launch of Data Privacy Manager, Spirion further strengthens our customers’ ability to automatically identify their sensitive data, where it is stored, who has access and when it was last used while also reducing friction and improving productivity.”

The company is leveraging its recent US$20 million investment by The Riverside Company, Spirion’s private equity owner, to accelerate the development of new products that further deliver on and strengthen its Data Privacy Management Framework. The framework puts data discovery, classification and protection at the front-end of enterprise security and compliance programs. It enables organisations to automatically and persistently discover, classify, understand, control and protect sensitive data to ensure compliance while allowing for greater business agility.
