In today’s data-driven world, where information is a valuable asset, safeguarding sensitive information has become paramount. With the move toward digital transformation, enterprises are consolidating all their digital services into a single global unit where data is stored in a single repository, making it easier to analyze and share. But this comes at a cost, by consolidating enterprise data, it means data is commingled in a single instance and everyone has access to it, resulting in increased risk of unauthorized access and data breaches. On the contrary, if data is not in a single repository, data may be more secure, but it becomes a challenge for organizations to analyze and share the data, creating inefficiencies and impeding decision making.
In this age of interconnectedness and data-driven decision-making, logical data segregation emerges as simple solution to unify and share data in a single global instance without the risk of wrongful disclosure and unauthorized access. Logical data segregation removes the need to physically segregate data by controlling access and safeguard valuable information in the single global instance using zero trust principles. With logical data segregation, organizations can become a more effective intelligent enterprise. So, what does logical data segregation entail and how does it contribute to strengthening data privacy and security within an organization?
