Introduction IBM recently announced that it acquired Polar Security, a DSPM pioneer. Polar's agentless solution automatically finds unknown and sensitive data across the cloud, including structured and unstructured assets, SaaS apps, and within cloud service providers such as AWS. Once discovered, Polar classifies the data, maps the potential and actual flow of that data, and identifies vulnerabilities, such as misconfigurations, over-entitlements, and behavior that violates policy or regulations.
