Your company's file system contains critical business information, intellectual property, and other sensitive data. A single unintended change or inappropriate access can put your entire organization at risk, affect productivity, cause service interruptions and/or create corporate risk of security breaches and non-compliance.
- Make intelligent data decisions
- Predict & control budget and resource allocations
- Identify and reduce risk
- Prepare for data migrations with comprehensive data inventory
- Implement policies based on analysis
With growing amounts of unstructured data floating around in most companies, it is very difficult to make intelligent data decisions. In order to get a good understanding of your data, you must gain unstructured data analytics, through ongoing Data Inventory and data management.
File system auditing analyzes:
- What data you have
- Where it resides
- How old it is
- Value of the data
Data inventory allows you to better predict and control budget and resource allocations. File system auditing software and strategies can also mitigate risk by ensuring compliance with FRCP and other regulations.
Benefits of Unstructured Data Analytics
Identify Risk These audits allow you to find files that contain sensitive or private data, see who is accessing what data, and see how well you’re meeting compliance standards.
Remove Waste Are you paying to store duplicate files, zero-value data such as lunch invites, outdated files and orphaned data? File system auditing ensures that you’re only holding onto relevant and valuable information.
Increase Value Data inventory not only reduces storage costs but can also reduce costs associated with data migration, and data protection. By cleaning up unstructured data, organizations can gain key insights to make smarter decisions, and enhance employee productivity in addition to mitigating risk.
