Sponsored by Businesswire

Concentric Inc., a leading vendor of intelligent AI-based solutions for protecting business-critical data, today announced that TMC, a global integrated media company, has named its Semantic Intelligence™ solution as a 2020 Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award winner. The Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award, presented by Cloud Computing magazine, recognizes companies and their products that have most effectively leveraged cloud computing in their efforts to bring new, differentiated offerings to market.

Concentric’s Semantic Intelligence automates unstructured data security using deep learning to categorize data, uncover business criticality and reduce risk. The solution uses the baseline security practices observed for each data category to calculate a “risk distance” from the baseline to each individual document or file within a company. Risk distance reveals inappropriate sharing, risky storage locations and incorrect classifications – all without regex, rules or upfront policy configuration. Concentric works autonomously to reduce staff demands required to secure data, while providing continuous protection.

“Recognizing leaders in the advancement of cloud computing, TMC and Cloud Computing magazine are proud to announce Concentric as a recipient of the Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “Concentric is being honored for its achievement in bringing innovation and excellence to this crucial market segment.”

“We are proud to receive the 2020 Cloud Computing Security Excellence Award in recognition of our innovative cloud security solution and the real-world value it offers our customers,” said Karthik Krishnan, Concentric CEO. “Concentric is noted across the industry for our innovative use of AI to discover and protect business-critical unstructured cloud data without rules or complex policies. We prevent data loss by autonomously identifying and remediating oversharing and other data security risks, and we are being deployed by organizations in a wide variety of industries.”
