BigID alternative

Ketch vs. BigID for data discovery

Manage your privacy compliance and risk with an efficient, automated, and integrated data discovery solution.
Data discovery is foundational for privacy and governance programs and services. Businesses need to know where and what types of sensitive and personal data they have, as well as the ability to respect and enforce consumer privacy choices on that information wherever it resides on the site.

Modern privacy programs require efficient and dynamic data discovery that flexibly connects to data sets, offers centralized control, and enables key privacy use cases to mitigate risk.
Looking for BigID competitors for data discovery and classification services?

Whatever data intelligence platform  you choose for your discovery and privacy compliance, make sure you check the box on these essential feature requirements below.

Move to a dynamic data discovery platform

BigID doesn’t cut it when it comes to data discovery. Here’s why.

First-generation data discovery platforms just don’t solve for modern-day requirements. Among the many challenges, first-generation data discovery software is:

Slow and cumbersomeSpeed to data visibility and insights is essential for a modern business site. Traditional data discovery and classification scanning methods like BigID are slow to gather information, sometimes taking months or years to catalog data.
Complex and costly implementationIf you need a data discovery solution that is fast and easy to implement so that you comply with data privacy laws, don’t look to BigID. Customers complain about costly software and long implementation cycles. You’ll spend countless hours and cycles to get the tool working for your business’s unique needs.
Lacking agility and speed to innovationAs privacy management providers get larger, their ability to make dynamic shifts according to customer demands grows slower. BigID is no exception; despite being early to market, smaller providers like Ketch with better technology are catching up.

Ketch values our customer feedback and will work alongside you to build software solutions for your information needs. Forrester even rated our privacy management innovation roadmap a 5/5 compared to 3/5 for BigID.

Ketch is a next-generation data discovery and classification platform. Our solution is dynamic, secure, and natively integrated with our privacy management software to enable key privacy use cases like ROPAs, data mapping, and more. But don’t just take our word for it:

Dynamic, always-on data discovery and classification

Understanding where and what types of personal and sensitive information are being used across your organization's site is often the first step for privacy programs.

First-generation data discovery tools are incomplete and time consuming, relying on manual surveys to fill in technology gaps, or recreating your information in a parallel data lake (security teams hate that!).

With Ketch, data discovery is always-on, giving you a real time view of information used across your business, including data sitting in your vendor and partner systems. Importantly, data stays where it is, with no doubling up in parallel categories or data lakes. Our responsive classification engine applies labels so you understand what types of information you have.

Natively integrated with privacy management tools

Data discovery and privacy management aren’t separate things. It is impossible to separate data visibility and control from building a future-proof, scalable privacy program. With Ketch, data discovery is natively integrated with our privacy management software.

When you integrate data discovery with privacy management, you enable critical privacy use cases like assessments, DSR fulfillment, and reporting/audits, as well as centralized data governance policy-setting and enforcement. Don’t skip this critical requirement when searching for BigID alternatives.

Ketch Platform

Centralized control on decentralized data

Did we mention that your sensitive and personal data stays where it is?

With Ketch, data stays in your systems and infrastructure, but you can set access and security policy from the Ketch services interface.

Set and enforce policies on who accesses data and for what purpose, and set security parameters for how data appears on access i.e., plain, masked, tokenized, encrypted, or statistically anonymized.

But don't just take our word for it, hear it straight from our customers:
