SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cloud Data Lifecycle Security startup Dasera announced today that it has been recognized as one of five finalists for 2021 SC Media Trust Award in the Best Database Security Solution category.

Dasera is a data security platform that automates the security, privacy, and compliance of your cloud databases through better visibility, governance, and remediation.

"While the world will remember 2020 as the year of the pandemic and working from home, other threats did not diminish. In fact, phishing and ransomware experienced a banner year. Dasera and the other finalists for Trust Awards provided to companies the tools and services needed to respond to the unrelenting threat landscape, even as security teams scrambled to adapt internal security policies,” said Jill Aitoro, editor in chief of SC Media and editorial director at CyberRisk Alliance.
