Sensitive Data Discovery Scan as a ServiceAffordable, Elegant, and Simple
More than 40 percent of organisations do not know where their data is stored Institute of Directors and Barclays
Delivered in partnership with GEOLANG award-winning cybersecurity innovators
What We Do
With the unique ability to protect, detect and remediation at a True Content level on premise, across cloud-based services and beyond, organisations can now gain real value from open collaboration and information sharing without the fear of losing control of their high value information.
Why Discovery Scan Service is needed
As compliance agendas across industry and government departments tighten, and data is increasingly recognised as the true lifeblood of modern organisations, businesses are facing ever-increasing pressure to locate, manage and protect their most vital information. However, the Information Commissioner’s Office (the regulator overseeing GDPR enforcement) has estimated that 91% of organisations would fail to fulfil a simple Subject Access Request (SAR) within the required time frame, which is enough to attract a sizeable fine under the recent regulation.
What are the cost implications for Discovery software
Such a solution can be costly and difficult to secure board-level buy-in and funding, which is why GeoLang has launched a one-time Scan-as-a-Service version of its Ascema Sensitive Data Discovery solution. Using built-in machine learning algorithms, it will search, locate and audit unstructured sensitive data across a multitude of data repositories – including endpoints, servers, external drives, cloud applications (such as Office 365) and cloud storage. This includes Personally Identifiable (PII), Payment Card Industry (PCI), Intellectual Property (IP), HIPAA, and GDPR-related information.
What will scan as a service deliver
It will generate an executive summary “HERO” Report, providing organisations with a dynamic overview of their data, their current risk profile, the potential value of that risk, and how much of that risk has been mitigated. GeoLang consultants will augment the dynamic report with “work packages,” detailing key findings and recommended actions for remediation – including training and policies.
What are the benefits for using the service
The aim is to significantly reduce costly overheads and time-to-action, supporting IT security departments with often limited resources, to deploy and manage a fully-fledged data discovery service. It also creates an opportunity to automate inform, guide and train end users on appropriate data use and remediation options when matches are found.
