Data Security Posture Management (DSPM) solutions are on-the-rise trends, according to Gartner. As cloud transformations and data democratization change the spheres in which we work and live, more and more data must remain safely stored and accessible. Risk landscapes change; so must the tools we proactively equip and employ in order to prevent as many breaches as possible.

Enter Normalyze, provider of cloud data security solutions. Normalyze describes DSPM as a “data-first approach based on the premise that data is an organization’s most vital asset. The proliferation of data in modern multi-cloud organizations is leading to rapidly increasing risks of sensitive data compromise or loss, and security stakeholders – those using legacy protection strategies, in particular – need to chart a modern path towards understanding DSPM and following platform-based instrumentation of it.”

This said, today ushers in huge news for Normalyze: The company has been granted the first-ever patent to date for DSPM by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. U.S. Patent #11,575,696 addresses cloud data attack path detection based on the security postures of cloud environments, as well as resource network path-tracing.

Make no mistake, this patent is foundational. With implications set to help innovate enterprise cybersecurity markets at large, Normalyze is ready for whatever challenges await.

“This patent is the first – and most important – in the DSPM space,” said Ravi Ithal, co-founder and CTO of Normalyze. “Its technology connects the threats to sensitive data in customer cloud environments, allowing them to focus on what matters most instead of chasing thousands of alerts generated by other siloed products.”

“Getting the first major patent for an emerging new category such as DSPM,” Ithal continued, “shows our thought leadership in helping customers protect their most valuable assets.”

DSPM provides visibility to the whos, whats, wheres and hows of cloud data security within a business and can be used to bridge orchestratable and scalable gaps with unified efforts. DSPM offers sensitive data exposure prevention, a more manageable data attack surface, and a combination of faster compliances and reduced cloud costs while empowering businesses’ value creators.

The industry has been in need of more than mere digital bandages for data security; systematic, comprehensive, and effective processes must head-on address ongoing issues.

This is what Normalyze’s new patent signifies.
