Emails and files are the new targets for data breaches, so it’s time to extend your Identity Governance in order to manage unstructured data.
Prime target for hackers
Almost every organization has noticed the volume of their enterprise data is rising exponentially, and the vast majority of an organization’s data is stored in files. In the past, data was mostly stored in databases. Today, with platforms like Sharepoint, DropBox and Google Drive, a lot of the critical enterprise data is stored in files—which are left largely unmanaged because they live outside of IT’s purview. As a result, this data has become the prime target for hackers.
We can help structure and store your data in a secure way.
As 80% of enterprise data exists within unsecured or unmanaged files, they are the prime target for hackers!
This is a problem for organizations because it makes them vulnerable to hackers. When we couple this with the increase in privacy-focused regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation Act (GDPR), it’s obvious that securing your data, whether on-premises or in the cloud, has to be addressed by the Identity Governance strategy.
When it comes to protecting access to sensitive data, many organizations have a blind spot for data that resides outside of applications and databases. This means that a lot of information exists within unsecured files and remains vulnerable to security and data breaches.
The importance of managing access to data is heavily underestimated.
Make Sure your Identity Governance strategy addresses the growing need of securing data in files both on-premises or in the cloud!
A couple of scenarios that a good Data Security solution should address:
- Seamless management of access to both on-premises file-storage systems like SharePoint, and cloud-based file-storage systems such as Box, DropBox, Google Drive and OneDrive, in a flexible, cost-effective way.
- An adaptive connectivity model that enables organizations with large, complex storage environments to optimize data classification and permission analysis for increased scalability and performance.
- Enhanced risk-based forensics and alert management that reveal greater insight via a user-friendly interface. Security and audit teams can quickly detect ransomware and proactively remediate suspicious activity by alerting an administrator—for example, if a user is downloading large amounts of data outside of business hours or if files are being renamed in bulk.
