Mitigate business and cybersecurity risks by achieving information transparency
Stored data is a big source of business and compliance risk. It may contain regulated, confidential or sensitive information that must not leak outside your organizational boundaries. Unfortunately, breaches are increasingly common as a result of malicious attacks, human errors, and system configuration problems.
With Nuix Sensitive Data Finder, you can quickly find out:
- What sensitive data your organization has
- Where it’s stored
- When was it created—and why
- How you can make changes to protect it.
All the Searching Power with Minimal Storage and Less Risk
Nuix Sensitive Data Finder applies the power of the Engine to generate Information Transparency™ across the contents of email systems, file shares, archives, databases, and other enterprise storage systems.
Our patent pending Custom Processing technology conducts complex searches—including optical character recognition—without storing a permanent index. This enables you to run sweeps or audits across large numbers of systems very quickly.
Custom Processing technology allows you to set rules about which metadata, extracted text, and binary files to retain for analysis. Most customers set it to keep metadata and text only from items that contain sensitive data, and to ignore the rest. This means you can search across hundreds or thousands of systems without needing to build a large storage infrastructure. You can also avoid creating new records or discoverable content that represent an additional business risk.
Improve Regulatory Compliance
Nuix Sensitive Data Finder gives you transparency into what sensitive data your organization has, where it is stored, and what compliance obligations you have to manage it. This helps you meet all relevant regulatory requirements around storing, managing, protecting, and disposing of private and high-risk information.
Safeguard Sensitive Data Against External and Insider Breaches
Unauthorized and poorly protected copies of sensitive data are easy pickings for cybercriminals and malicious insiders. Locating and securing or removing these copies reduces your organization’s exposure to cybersecurity breaches, insider abuse, and inadvertent data loss.
Employees daily create, copy, and work with sensitive data on unmanaged systems such as local hard drives, file shares, and email. Conducting regular sweeps or audits helps you locate unprotected data and educate users to improve their behavior.
Protect Valuable Assets
Nuix Sensitive Data Finder can apply the same methods to locate and help you protect valuable and confidential information such as contracts, trade secrets, proprietary recipes or methods, software code, pricing, and other strategic and decision documentation.
