CATEGORIZE ENTERPRISE DATA
Identifying enterprise data
It's more important than ever before.
Organizations are required to ensure privacy and security. This is not optional. Regulations demand it. Policies and contracts require organizations to know.
But how do you know if data is sensitive? Because if you don’t know, how do you implement the right access level and protection?
You can’t. And that also creates risk.
Gather more information about your data
The details matter.
Using a system that understands what is in your data helps your organization lower the risk, monetize it, then protect it, all while maintaining compliance.
Data lifecycle management made easy
Classification to the rescue
In the process of data classification, you can also identify redundant, duplicative data. You're able to save storage costs by reducing the footprint of all your data while closing up potential security-risk outliers.
Unstructured sensitive data – data not in a structured database – is particularly vulnerable to hackers. That's because it's hiding amongst lots of other data. Classification makes it easier to protect with easier policy creation and application of protection methods.
Discover relationships between data sets
Correlate information to your benefit.
Use data analytics, file analysis, machine learning (ML), and other automation techniques to identify valuable and sensitive data – either structured or unstructured - that's interrelated.
This allows you to find and associate data – no matter the source – with data subjects and makes it easier for you to decide if you want to protect it.
Continously update your inventory
Because you know it's always changing.
Classification should be iterative. Data is constantly evolving, on the move.
To keep your understanding of your data current you need a system that continuously rediscovers and reclassifies.
This allows you to be continously compliant now and moving forward.
Next step: data protection
Does security travel with your data?
Your enterprise data needs to be secure - independent of applications, databases, and platforms. At rest, in motion, or in use.
This is the only way you're able to take complete control of sensitive data and therefore lower compliance costs and significantly reduce the risk of data breaches.Learn more
