AI and Data Security Posture Management: Concentric AI's Partnership with CTERA


The increased availabilities of large datasets to train machine learning (ML) algorithms is just one of the reasons why AI advancements are soaring in popularity right now. AI’s task automation competencies, improved decision-making, and overall accessibility are key reasons, as well.

Another is how AI can be tapped to bolster security measures for businesses. Let’s take a closer look at that today.

Concentric AI, a renowned vendor of intelligent AI-based solutions and sophisticated deep-learning-as-a-service (DLaaS) capabilities, also deploys autonomous data security posture management (DSPM). Last week, Concentric AI announced a new partnership with CTERA, a multi-cloud and edge-to-cloud services platform, to bring DSPM even more into focus.

By partnering, CTERA can seamlessly integrate Concentric AI’s Semantic Intelligence solution into diverse customer environments by deploying an edge filer that acts as a cache server for Concentric AI’s DSPM capabilities. Together, Concentric AI and CTERA can jointly help customers discover, evaluate, store, and protect their growing volumes of confidential data (i.e. personal, for business, health, or financials), no matter where that data resides or is categorized. Enterprises looking to meet demanding regulatory requirements (and prevent sensitive and undue losses of data) are poised to benefit greatly from this.

After all, traditional data storage and protection methods aren’t fully keeping up with today’s expansive, cloud-centric environments. Exponential growths in data can make it more difficult for organizations to gain clear visibility into where their data is, who has access to it, and how it’s being managed. So, this joint solution scans datasets, detects what’s most critical, identifies the most appropriate classification categories, and then automatically tags it. The AI at work here works efficiently and removes manual needs for endless regex rule-writing and inaccurate end-user labeling. (It also identifies risks involving inappropriate permissioning, wrong entitlements, risky sharing tendencies, and unauthorized access; permissions can be remediated and other security solutions can be leveraged to quickly and continuously protect data.)

Representatives from both Concentric AI and CTERA have voiced satisfaction regarding their partnership.

“Concentric AI’s advanced DLaaS technology solves ongoing challenges in cloud data security and improves data security posture management,” said Karthik Krishnan, Concentric AI’s CEO. “Our integration with CTERA provides joint customers that have complex cloud environments with a simple, autonomous solution that can discover sensitive and regulated data and deliver a comprehensive picture of where these critical data elements reside. Customers get the AI-based tools they truly need for a complete and accurate picture of their most crucial data assets.”

Moreover, "We believe that data management needs to evolve from IOPS to DataOps; from being focused solely on storage performance to a more holistic approach that considers the data itself,” said Oded Nagel, CTERA’s CSO. “As data continues to grow, it's becoming increasingly important to use AI to help manage it all effectively. So, our partnership with Concentric AI allows our joint customers to harness the power of AI to more efficiently manage, protect, and control their data, from edge to cloud.”
