SAN JOSE, Calif.--Concentric Inc., a leading vendor of intelligent AI-based solutions for protecting business-critical data, today announced it has won a 2021 Artificial Intelligence Excellence Award for its Risk Distance™ natural language processing analysis technology in the Business Intelligence Group’s Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards program.
Concentric’s Semantic Intelligence™ automates unstructured and structured data security using deep learning to categorize data, uncover business criticality and reduce risk. Its Risk Distance analysis technology uses the baseline security practices observed for each data category to spot security anomalies in individual files. It compares documents with peers in the same category to identify risk from oversharing, third party access, and wrong location or misclassification. Organizations benefit from the expertise of content owners without intrusive classification mandates, with no rules, regex or policy maintenance needed.
“We are so proud to name Concentric as a winner in our inaugural Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer for Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that Concentric’s Risk Distance technology is using AI to improve the lives of their customers and employees. Congratulations to the entire team!”
“It is rewarding to receive the Business Intelligence Group’s AI Excellence Award, and to be recognized by the program’s panel of judges,” said Karthik Krishnan, Concentric CEO. “Concentric’s Semantic Intelligence solution uses advanced deep-learning technology to solve the problem of unstructured and structured data security – both in the cloud and on-premises. It delivers the industry’s best autonomous data discovery and categorization capability for complete data protection that gives enterprises the tools they need to effectively manage risk. Offered as a SaaS platform, the solution’s time-to-value is days, not weeks or months as with other solutions.”
Customers use Semantic Intelligence to discover and manage risks to privacy-sensitive and regulated data, such as customer data or personal health information. They also rely on the solution for their zero-trust data access governance programs, where the solution autonomously evaluates access based on document contents and meaning, not file folder locations, end-user markup or other unreliable access control alternatives. Semantic Intelligence protects all types of data, ranging from intellectual property to financial information to sensitive human resources files – continuously and autonomously.
