Datadog Launches Service to Protect Sensitive Data and Assist with Compliance Requirements

Datadog, Inc. (NASDAQ: DDOG), the monitoring and security platform for cloud applications, today announced the launch of Sensitive Data Scanner. When configured for a customer’s environment, this new service provides customers with an easy solution to detect, classify and protect sensitive data found in their application logs, helping them comply with regulatory requirements (such as GDPR, HIPAA, CCPA), industry standards and business policies.

Logs are often a major source of unintentional sensitive data exposure and leaks in enterprise and consumer applications. This opens organizations to legal, financial and privacy risks, and protecting such data requires significant financial and time investments. Datadog’s Sensitive Data Scanner mitigates these risks through an easy-to-use, stream-based pattern-matching service that uncovers, classifies and redacts sensitive information in real time and at any scale. Users can also build alerts and dashboards to easily identify and rapidly respond to sensitive data exposure.

“As we migrate our critical infrastructure and applications to the cloud, security and data protection have been a major focus,” said Kevin McGill, VP of Cloud Services at Citizens Bank. “Datadog provides us with a single pane of glass for both monitoring and securing our critical data. Datadog’s Sensitive Data Scanner provides complete visibility into the flow of PII data, and is a critical part of our data loss prevention strategy.”

“It can take days, weeks or even months for a company’s security or compliance teams to identify exposed data and escalate for remediation, leaving them out of compliance and at risk of significant data breaches. This is especially true for large engineering organizations where hundreds of services are being managed and teams are constantly changing,” said Renaud Boutet, Senior Vice President of Product at Datadog. “Sensitive Data Scanner provides a central point to identify both the exposed information and the engineering teams to work with to resolve issues, all in real time.”
