Data Discovery, Classification and Compliance

Data Discovery, Classification and Compliance

All organisations possess data of varying degrees of confidentiality, ranging from publicly available data through to highly sensitive secret data. Our solution reduces risks and prevents breaches, helping you answer key questions to ensure that risk-appropriate security controls are implemented around your most critical data.  Plus, the platform enables you to detect abnormal activity early and respond before a threat turns into a breach.

Our Solutions:

Increase Visibility Into Data. Organisations typically own and manage both structured and unstructured data.  Structured data has a certain amount known about it, for example within a database, there are known tables and types of data (e.g. Personal Identifying Information (PII) such as names, postal addresses, email addresses). Unstructured data can be much more complex, with limited information known about it. So a major part of data discovery centres around understanding what data is actually held, where it is, and how it is used.  Accuracy of unstructured data analysis is efficiently delivered through compound term processing and statistical analysis to provide a deep insight.

Reduce the exposure of sensitive content by tightening permissions, mitigating data and infrastructure security risks through moving data, or redacting confidential data.  The starting point for reducing exposure must be understanding the scope of the discovery and classification activities, which can then feed into the tightening of controls around the data.  These controls range from using document marking, to classifying data, enforcing user permissions, through to identifying data in unexpected locations.

Automate Data Related Activities. Ensure classification information is embedded in files to improve the accuracy of DLP solutions, and in order to assist in streamlining data management activities such as retaining, archiving, or migrating specific types of data.  Continuous review of sensitive data can then take place to ensure ongoing compliance with policies and regulatory requirements.


Our solution assists with achieving compliance, be it with PCI-DSS, GDPR requirements (such as subject access requests), and with other regulations through the provision of enterprise-wide visibility into both on-premise and cloud-based systems.  We provide reporting on the effectiveness of the data security controls across your entire infrastructure, so you can remediate any flaws before auditors come to call.  We also help you to realise the full value of your data, and increase employee productivity through improvements in efficiencies.
