Santa Clara, Calif.-based Baffle and New York-based BigID both show promise around securing sensitive data whether that data is in a SaaS application, cloud application, or an application that runs in cloud IaaS, Gupta said.

BigID was named the most innovative startup during the 2018 RSA Conference, and can discover where data is, how it's being accessed, and what kind of consent privileges are in place, Gupta said. As privacy by design increasingly becomes a global standard, Gupta said services like what BigID offers hold a lot of promise.

Baffle, meanwhile, has demonstrated that its technology can allow enterprises to operate on encrypted data, Gupta said. Normally, when data is encrypted, Gupta said companies can't run transaction operations on it such as search, sort, queries or analytics.

To transact on encrypted data, Gupta said businesses would traditionally have to obtain a key, decrypt the data, run operations, and encrypt it back again. BigID, though, has been able to solve this problem for a limited set of use cases, according to Gupta.
