Data Guardrails

Data guardrails are policy rules that enable data to be used in authorized ways, while preventing risky behaviors that might otherwise lead to a data breach or compliance violation. Examples might include rules that ensure passwords and keys are rotated on a regular basis, or rules that validate that all public-facing data repositories are properly encrypted. Guardrails can be used as an efficient tool to augment audits, providing real-time detection and enforcement of policies, identifying issues as they occur rather than days, weeks, or months later when an audit occurs.
