ASG Technologies and BigID to Power Pilot Flying J’s Information Management and Governance

ASG and BigID’s partnership offers end-to-end management solution linking data governance and business context with granular, up-to-date data knowledge

ASG Technologies, a leading provider of solutions for the information-powered enterprise, and BigID, the leading data discovery and intelligence platform for privacy, protection and perspective of personal and sensitive data, today announced Pilot Flying J (Pilot) as a joint customer. Pilot, which is the largest operator of travel centers and travel plazas in North America, has selected Mobius Content Services to manage the company’s content in compliance with today’s data regulations.

Privacy regulations like the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) have created new challenges for organizations, which now must not only understand where personal and sensitive data lives within the enterprise and whose data it is, but also take action to ensure its collection and use is compliant with ever-changing requirements.

To solve for the privacy and personal information (PI) challenges associated with these regulations, Pilot turned to ASG and BigID. Based on data privacy insights provided by BigID, Mobius Content Services can manage and govern the explosive growth of an organization’s content (documents, images, video and other types of content), and mitigate the compliance risks that come with that growth. With BigID, Pilot is now able to automatically identify and classify all PI at scale across all their structured data as well as all content stored in Mobius. What’s more, they can take action (redact, delete or hold) on any content stored in Mobius based on BigID discovery insights to ensure Pilot is compliant with applicable data regulations.

"Our customers are on the move, and we can’t let a lack of understanding our data get in the way of our ability to serve them, both in their travel needs and their data privacy rights," said Greg Hydro, Pilot Flying J Chief Information Security Officer. "With ASG and BigID’s solutions, we are confident in our ability to trust our data and understand where PI lives within our organization, enabling us to not only ensure we are compliant, but also continue to grow our business with a strong data foundation."

BigID is an ASG Technology Alliance Partner, and together the companies integrate complementary solutions. ASG and BigID enable enterprises to sustain data trust, enrich insight for data management and balance compliance and business value demands. The integration of ASG’s capabilities for analyzing how personal information moves, assigning business and regulatory context to data assets and governing access and data availability with BigID’s ability to surface, classify and tag data based on its relationship to individuals enables enterprises to:

  • Ensure dynamic governance of data supply chains
  • Automate policy-driven redaction of personal data across the information life cycle
  • Allow data stewards and compliance teams to detect and remediate policy or compliance violations
  • Automate data rights fulfillment through alignment of compliance workflows with personal information indexing
  • Orchestrate end-to-end deletion workflows through integrated indexing of personal information and redaction

"We know enterprises can feel overwhelmed by the idea of managing all the data within their organization in compliance with data regulations, and ASG’s solutions that enable them to overcome these challenges are made even stronger when coupled with the solutions of our partners," said Doug Johnson, Vice President of Product Management for Content Services at ASG. "Our partnership with BigID adds another layer to ASG’s solutions and enables our joint customers like Pilot to sustain data trust and operationalize privacy compliance at a time when data privacy regulations are top of mind for enterprises."
