Locating credit cards, personally identifiable information such as SSNs and drivers licenses is a staple of our AnyFind® technology. AnyFind narrows the likelihood of a positive match and eliminates false positives through a series of validations while looking for those discrete pieces of data the way a human would. For example, when looking for a Social Security number, if you simply look for a 9-digit number you get a lot of noise. A zip +4 that is missing a dash can trigger a false positive. AnyFind has a unique approach: We look at the context of data, including location and proximity to make accurate determinations, along with 100+ validators.
Locating proprietary institutional data on the other hand—sensitive data that could only be understood and identified by its owners and creators—was the inspiration behind our Sensitive Data Engine!
Today, we launched Sensitive Data Manager 9.0, our Data Classification, Discovery and Data Loss Prevention solution boasting a centralized, on premise-to-cloud view into your sensitive data. Sensitive Data Manager 9.0 provides your organization with the ability to classify, monitor and protect organizationally unique sensitive data.
Sensitive Data Manager with Sensitive Data Engine delivers results faster than existing solutions because it requires minimal resources to implement. On average, it can be deployed and begin looking for sensitive data within hours, and within a week, can be protecting and monitoring an entire environment. It’s also more cost-effective than other approaches because it requires minimal IT staff resources to set up, and, once operational, minimal resources to monitor. What’s more, by reducing the number of false positives, it eliminates the need for extensive human intervention to verify the accuracy of findings. And by supplying accurate results from Sensitive Data Manager to other data security systems, it enables those systems to perform their tasks more cost-effectively.
