Concentric AI Reveals Solution to Protect Sensitive Data


Business messaging and communication tools, such as Slack, Teams and Zoom, exploded in popularity due to the pandemic-driven shift to remote and hybrid workforces. In the process, organizations found it difficult to control data leakage and prevent sharing abuses and mistakes. Limited visibility into content, context and access routinely allows regulated personal information, critical business documents and other sensitive data to fall into the wrong hands.

To protect sensitive data shared as text or attachments across today’s popular business messaging platforms, Concentric AI, a vendor of intelligent AI-based solutions for autonomous data security posture management, launched new capabilities that are available now as part of the Concentric Semantic Intelligence platform.

The platform will autonomously evaluate and manage data security posture to give security professionals the centralized remediation tools they need to find access issues and prevent data loss. The new capabilities reveal sensitive data shared across email and business messaging platforms and highlights who has inappropriate access to mission-critical content.

Concentric’s MIND deep-learning-as-a-service capabilities and natural language processing technologies work together to help organizations:

  • Identify sensitive and regulated data, such as PII/PCI/PHI, confidential business content and financial information as it flows across messaging and email platforms.
  • Evaluate an organization’s data security posture to determine who has access and whether that access is appropriate and authorized.
  • Centrally remediate issues by disabling access, recalling messages, or integrating with end-user and SOC workflows for redress.

“Malicious actions or human error can easily expose business-critical data to unauthorized users,” said Karthik Krishnan, Concentric CEO. “With Concentric, employees can continue collaborating and keep their operations humming without exposing the organization to regulatory violations, intellectual property loss or data breaches.”

Concentric AI is protecting millions of users across cloud and on-premises data stores. Its AI technology now extends accurate, comprehensive and autonomous protection to data shared using various popular messaging tools.
