How do you protect your data if you don’t know where it is?
In an ideal world, every document containing sensitive data would be filed safely away in its designated location. Unfortunately, it’s all too easy for information to be moved, misfiled, copied, pasted, duplicated, and forgotten. The popularity of offsite communications and modern standards of saving and archiving to cloud-based systems have only added to possible data theft risk. Even organizations with the best compliance policies find data hastily relocated, and even the best file tagging system can miss a file containing only a snippet of copied or reformatted sensitive information.
Accidents may happen, but the losses remain the same.
In every organization, there are many facets of data security which require accurate and proper monitoring. As statistics have shown over and over again, the causes not only range from a malicious internal threat, but – more often – instances of accidental lapses in compliance regulation policies. The losses can not only be financial, however, as true and accountability are always on the line when it comes to your organization and its network of clients.
Intelligent ID’s full suite succeeds in covering all of those angles, primarily by starting at your organization’s endpoint and providing you with the full control for up-to-date monitoring and customization. One of IID’s greatest assets in combating potential data breaches is its SmartScan ID function.
SmartScan ID identifies every piece of sensitive information in your environment based on the content of the file itself, providing you with a comprehensive report of that both identifies the data and locates precisely where it occurred. SmartScan ID can identify partial documents, snippets of data, or sensitive data that has been moved into new document formats. Each possible variable of intricate data loss is taken into consideration, making for the most full and comprehensive security overview.
When paired with our flagship monitoring product, Intelligent ID, SmartScan will keep you up-to-date with where your breach risks reside, what areas of the environment need heightened monitoring, and can conduct your forensic investigations for you should the need arise.
