Many industries want to give their employees the ability to find and protect private data directly, rather than leaving the central IT department responsible. In these situations, IT still needs to have oversight and visibility into the organizations overall exposure to potential data breaches.

To facilitate this type of deployment, Spirion supports a distributed architecture that allows each employee to interact directly with the Spirion Client. The client software is deployed to each machine and reports the results of a search back into the Enterprise Console. The Enterprise Console provides managers with a single aggregated view of the organization’s unsecured sensitive data, so they can see which system areas pose the greatest risk.
