Data exfiltration — the risk of your data ending up somewhere it doesn’t belong — remains one of the greatest data security concerns. This risk is only worsened by the fact that as companies migrate their data into the cloud, they struggle to maintain the visibility needed to ensure their data remains secure.

Nightfall™ uses machine learning to identify business-critical data, like customer PII, across your SaaS, APIs, and data infrastructure, so you can manage & protect it.

Our deep learning-based classifiers are trained on massive volumes of data to yield high accuracy. Unlike traditional methods, Nightfall considers the context surrounding a given token in order to accurately classify it. This means Nightfall performs well on unstructured and ambiguous data, which is increasingly common in enterprises today. Nightfall parses and scans 100+ file types, including images, screenshots, compressed folders, PDFs, etc.

Nightfall does not store or track your sensitive data. Our classifications are fed into the Nightfall platform so you can review & remediate the findings, or leverage them in your own way via our REST API.

Discover, classify, and protect your sensitive data:

  • Discover: Integrate in minutes with cloud services via APIs to monitor data without agents.
  • Classify: Machine learning classifies your sensitive data & PII with high accuracy, so nothing gets missed.
  • Protect: Setup automated workflows for quarantines, deletions, alerts, and more - saving you time and keeping your business safe.

Join some of the world's leading enterprises who trust us to protect their mission-critical data.
