Many people are familiar with VPNs in the context of trying to stream TV shows for free. A VPN can make it seem like you’re in a different country by displaying an IP address in Europe or the US, for instance. Appearing to be in New York while traveling in the Netherlands gives you access to sites like Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Max — but the advantages of VPN security go beyond streaming the latest TV shows.

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.
