Data-centric security software is used to optimize the security of data itself, rather than the infrastructure or applications used to store or retrieve it. Data-centric security software places an emphasis on proper governance and access management to protect sensitive information. The core capabilities for data-centric security software include data discovery, policy management, access control, and monitoring. These tools help businesses by facilitating labeling, tagging, and tracking sensitive data points as well as auditing for security and compliance assurance.
Certain functionalities of data-centric security tools overlap with the capabilities of data governance software, mainly in terms of compliance and policy enforcement. While that is an important capability of data-centric security software, those tools are intended more for data lifecycle management than data security.
