PII Discovery and Classification

Optimize Governance of Your Sensitive Data

Overview

The Alation platform accelerates the discovery, management, and protection of sensitive data at scale to better meet evolving regulatory demands. Alation automatically classifies, and tags sensitive data, and effectively closes the gap between policies and usage to foster accountability in data use and promote data ethics.

Gain Control of Sensitive Data to Meet Growing Regulatory Demands

BUILD CUSTOMER TRUST AND INCREASE RETENTION

Proactively discover, protect, and manage sensitive data, like PII and PHI, to build customer trust and increase customer retention.

ALLEVIATE THE RISK OF DATA MISUSE

Reduce the risks associated with data misuse by accurately classifying and tagging sensitive data and providing visibility into behavior and usage patterns.

DRIVE THE STRATEGIC, COMPLIANT USE OF PERSONAL DATA

Alation breaks down data silos created by traditional compliance with a single view of personal data, such as customer 360 to drive trusted analytics for enhancing customer experience.

PROMOTE AN ETHICAL DATA CULTURE

Alation actively informs data consumers about policies and data context directly in their day-to-day workflow such as data analysis, promoting privacy awareness and improving data ethics.

Discover and manage sensitive data at scale

The Alation platform accelerates the ongoing discovery and management of sensitive data across its entire lifecycle and delivers insights into behavior and usage. Alation enables organizations to gain customer trust by operationalizing privacy policies and scaling compliance across multiple regulations.

Automatically classify and tag sensitive data

Alation automates the mapping of data to data categories, ensuring sensitive data is effectively classified and tagged to meet evolving compliance requirements. This insight is readily available for other data governance workflows, processes, and self-service analytics within the Alation platform.

Effectively communicate privacy policies

Alation actively communicates privacy policies by alerting users at the point of data consumption to foster responsibility and accountability in data use and promote a privacy-aware data culture and data ethics.

Through Alation, we can tag at both table and column levels to identify GDPR related data objects.
