Dig Security Delivers Data Security Posture Management for Generative AI Deployments

AI (Artificial Intelligence) concept. Communication network.

Organizations now can use the Dig Security Data Security Platform to watch over and control data being passed to generative artificial intelligence models and protect against data exposure, according to a prepared statement.

A Dig spokesperson explained to MSSP Alert how the Data Security Platform enables MSPs and MSSPs to secure generative AI deployments:

"MSPs and MSSPs who have clients grappling with AI deployments will now have access to a platform that can help ensure the security of their model data. Dig enables MSP and MSSP customers to train and deploy LLMs while maintaining data security, privacy and compliance."

Dig's Data Security Platform Secures Large Language Model (LLM) Architecture

An LLM is a trained deep learning model that understands and produces content based on large data sets. LLMs are becoming more mainstream than ever before, and many organizations are exploring ways to feed their proprietary data to them, Dig indicated. However, doing so exposes organizations to security and compliance risks.

With Dig's Data Security Platform, organizations can train and deploy LLMs, the company noted. They can scan databases and buckets in their cloud accounts, detect and classify sensitive data and see which users and roles can access these data. From here, they can view data that is being used to train, fine-tune or inform the responses of AI models.

The Data Security Platform detects data-related AI risks before a model is trained, Dig pointed out. The platform also offers real-time data detection and response (DDR), as it identifies data flows that can result in downstream model risk.

Dig Upgrades Data Security Platform

Along with added data security posture management (DSPM) for generative AI deployments, Dig in July 2023 incorporated optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities into its Data Security Platform. These capabilities allow Data Security Platform users to identify data hidden in image files and move it to a secure environment, the company said.

Dig helps organizations view, manage and protect their data across various cloud environments, the company stated. It provides a partner program that allows MSSPs, MSPs and other technology providers to automatically discover, classify, protect and govern customer data and provide DDR solutions.
