Protect your structured and unstructured data
Fight against data breach
Ensure operational efficiency in a secured environment
Data breach cases are more and more publicized in the media, and the reputation and financial impacts are all the more desastrous for businesses. In most cases, data breaches come from within the organization.
Facing these cases, legislation is becoming arsher. New rules are coming about, such as the European Data Protection Directive, in which strict rules are defined as to better protect personal data and force businesses to inform the public and their clients when a data breach has happened.
The challenge companies face is to regain control over mangaing their data. But, this isn’t easy as data volumes are exploding and sensitive data are overexposed. CIOs and security actors, the CISO being at the front line, are finding themselves in a « no man’s land », unable to identify sensitive data and mitigate security risks.
