New capabilities will enhance data security posture management, real-time breach detection, compliance adherence, and sprawl prevention

NEW YORK CITY, May 06, 2024 Sentra, a leader in cloud-native data security, today announced the first technology integration with Microsoft 365 services to deliver complete visibility, control and security of sensitive data assets within Microsoft SharePoint, OneDrive and across the entire data estate. The integration complements Microsoft Purview and allows Sentra customers to benefit from its combined data security posture management (DSPM) and data detection and response (DDR) platform across Microsoft 365 services to ensure data security, privacy, and compliance, and consistent policies across hybrid and multi-cloud environments.  

As data proliferates, organizations are increasingly challenged to discover and secure sensitive data in all the varied places it migrates to — including disparate cloud providers, warehouses and data lakes, SaaS applications and local or cloud-based document repositories. This new integration builds on the standing technology collaboration between  Sentra and Microsoft to discover and protect structured and unstructured sensitive data no matter where it travels. The combined solutions allow companies, where Microsoft 365 is a prominent solution for office productivity, device management, security, collaboration and cloud storage needs, to scan and classify their on-prem and cloud data without it ever having to leave the customer environment.

“As more businesses move sensitive data between the cloud and on premises, DSPM becomes more crucial,” said Yoav Regev, co-founder and CEO at Sentra. “This integration will help large enterprises significantly improve their security by giving them a complete view of assets and risks through a unified data catalog and real-time threat monitoring. As a result, companies can reduce data sprawl, limit and monitor access to sensitive documents, and understand how data moves which minimizes entry points for threat actors.”

The integration will also enable:

  • Sprawl prevention across personal drives: Discover and notify users about sensitive company information, like PII, that reside in personal OneDrive and violate company policy
  • Real-time threat detection: Detect suspicious activities, like data exfiltration or movements to less secure areas, in real-time and act immediately  
  • Access control for sensitive documents: Monitor sharing permissions to enforce policies and ensure least privilege access and other cyber hygiene best practices
  • Risk visibility in multi-cloud and Microsoft 365 services: Discover and classify sensitive data across all environments, including all cloud providers, SaaS, and on-premise shares and databases
  • Enhanced data loss prevention policies: Sentra will apply Sensitivity Labels to emails, documents and many file formats that can be leveraged by  DLP solution for better and more efficient policies

“More than 345 million people currently use Microsoft 365, which means there’s an infinite amount of sensitive data moving within and between environments,” said Tom Davis, Partner at Microsoft for Startups. “Sentra’s integration with Microsoft 365 helps safeguard people, data and infrastructure by arming organizations with the tools to reduce the response time to business-critical risks and mitigate any potential impact.”

Sentra has been selected for inclusion in the invitation-only Microsoft for Startups Pegasus Program, which provides additional support for growth-stage startups to uncover leads, drive sales, and accelerate growth. Connections like these can help create additional opportunities for Sentra to strengthen cloud-native data security for Microsoft’s enterprise customers.
