In November 2018, hotel chain Marriott saw its worst fears realized; a massive data breach was detected within its systems with hackers stealing data belonging to as many as 383 million guests. Nearly four years in its gestation, the hack was reportedly alleged to have stolen a broad array of data including credit card and passport numbers, birth dates, phone numbers as well as hotel arrival and departure dates (https://ibn.fm/u0Vq1

, a data security and privacy software company, has centered its mission around preventing the likes of the Marriott hack from ever being repeated, stating its steadfast commitment towards identifying and protecting all sensitive data regardless of location, platform, or format.

Perhaps more importantly, the research firm’s study also showed how the majority of customers were focused on vender consolidation strategies – aiming to consolidate their various data security requirements from a single source.
