Why is DAC important?
According to 451 Research…
“The modern data layer – particularly via diversified cloud architecture – has gradually become more accessible to enterprise technology end users and data consumers, with businesses struggling to appropriately control data access and monitor activity. For purposes such as compliance stance and proactive data security strategy, organizations need more sophisticated control of individual data sources residing in cloud repositories.”
