The digital transformation ushered in a new era, but a more profound revolution is upon us: the AI Transformation. Artificial intelligence is rapidly reshaping entire industries, and data security is no exception.

Data is the lifeblood of modern businesses, fueling innovation and growth. However, its sheer volume can be overwhelming. Traditional methods of data discovery and classification often struggle to keep pace with the information explosion across cloud platforms and network servers. This creates a dangerous blind spot, leaving businesses vulnerable to data breaches and non-compliance with privacy regulations.
