Discover & Classify Data

Data Discovery and Classification for Office 365 apps, SharePoint on-premises, Windows File Shares and Nutanix Files

Don’t Let Dark Data Put You at Risk

The explosion of collaboration tools has been a boom for productivity and information sharing. Today more information is being created than ever before. The problem is that much of the information is Dark Data – organizations lack the detailed file analysis and data insight to ensure the correct security and governance is being applied. The risks are magnified when sensitive data including intellectual property, customer or employee personal data, or financial information are not properly managed. The ability to discover and classify data is essential to your data security best practices.

You need to ask yourself:

  • Do you know where the unstructured content in your organization is being created, shared and stored?
  • Are you sure that your sensitive data is adequately protected and only available to the appropriate individuals?
