Data Discovery Use Case

Ditch manual classification and unstructured data

Meet shifting regulatory requirements and security use cases head-on with optimized data discovery

The practice of data discovery and classification varies widely and is typically built around the kind of information a business needs to track and manage its individual industry requirements.

Classification methods and outcomes vary too; while larger organizations have embraced data loss prevention (DLP) technology, smaller organizations with a limited budget and internal resourcing rely on manual methods to keep track of their data.

the challenge

Data sprawl is making it harder to discover and classify structured and unstructured data types

Small and midsize businesses face ever-increasing regulatory pressure, data privacy requirements and cyber risk. They’re held to the same standards as larger companies and are expected to maintain up-to-date data inventories in accordance with data privacy and security regulations. Many businesses, especially utilities and municipalities, rely on manual data classification techniques like folder structures and meta data tagging. But those methods are prone to error, can’t scale and lack diligence, making the process next to impossible to audit and difficult to enforce.

On the other hand, larger companies have embraced DLP technology to provide classification capabilities and visibility into data leaving the network. However, the inline data suppression capabilities they offer are usually based on whitelisting and blacklisting, and push notifications after the data has left the network, rather than while it’s in motion and recoverable.

Risks of Limited and Manual Data Discovery & Classification Capabilities:

Breach liability

Data loss

Data privacy

Increased operational risks

Out-of-date data

Poorly protected data

Regulatory non-compliance

Reputational damage

Find and Classify All Your Data

Businesses need to rethink the way they’re managing data classification. Manual classification methods and unstructured data (databases) can’t keep pace with shifting use cases, escalating cyber risk and increasing regulatory pressures.
