Dig Security, the cloud data security company, has added support for Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to the Dig Data Security Platform. Dig can now detect sensitive customer data in image files, such as passports and driver’s licenses, that are stored in multi-cloud environments.

“Today’s enterprises need OCR capabilities – they cannot rely on discovery and classification of text files alone,” said Dan Benjamin, Co-Founder and CEO, Dig Security. “There is an overwhelming amount of sensitive data in image files, and data left unprotected and unmonitored increases the risk of data exfiltration and breaches. We are proud to offer the industry’s only DSPM platform with OCR, providing our customers with holistic data security.”

The new OCR capabilities enable Dig customers to identify sensitive data hidden in image files and move it to a secure environment. In one user’s environment – a company that validates customers via a driver’s license or passport – Dig found that the number of images containing Personal Identifiable Information (PII) was as high as the total number of customers. Dig found 80K images in one bucket.

The Dig Data Security Platform is claimed to be the industry’s first and only solution to combine DSPM, data loss prevention (DLP), and data detection and response (DDR) capabilities into a single platform.
