According to Arun Taneja, founder and consulting analyst, Taneja Group, "WysDM goes beyond pure compliance, giving an organization the right tools to comprehensively manage every aspect of data protection. Using WysDM, an organization can proactively manage data protection practices, and guarantee service levels and capabilities."
While the focus on data protection in regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Basel II, HIPAA, and others varies, ultimately they all require that enterprises ensure that their data is appropriately protected — a task that can be costly and labor-intensive. In fact, the Taneja Group reports that it has identified cases in which up to 50 percent of IT staff time is occupied with compliance reporting.
The Solution Profile report outlines the key challenges in delivering data protection assurance and identifies the key features in WysDM 4 that "make it an ideal platform for data protection assurance." These features include:
— Broad enterprise integration — A framework for policy and best practice reporting — Authoritative data — Automated data collection and predictive analysis — Platform for problem management
"For enterprises looking at optimizing or improving their data protection practices — whether soley for compliance or more broadly — WysDM has answers," Taneja wrote. "WysDM remains a leader in this DPM field, and its expanded platform support along with increased coverage of new aspects of data protection keep WysDM on the leading edge of data protection management."
