Search Windows Desktops

For years organizations have used Windows desktops to facilitate their business processes. Over time, sensitive information has been copied and saved in numerous locations, often without the proper protections. Although these organizations may have policies in place to keep private data secure, IT administrators have lacked the tools to ensure employees are complying. As a result, these machines are rife with personal information.

Spirion can search Windows desktops both locally and remotely. If the Spirion Client is installed directly on a Windows Desktop, it will search the entire local machine. All editions of Spirion for Windows support searching the local Windows machine. Providing local installations to end users of Windows desktops is just one way Spirion can find and protect sensitive information.

Spirion Enterprise Client for Windows can also search machines remotely. This enterprise feature allows Spirion to search in an agent-less mode for sensitive data, such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and more. IT administrators must simply enter remote connection details, including authentication credentials, to search remote Windows desktops. In addition, any sensitive information found through these remote searches can also be protected if the administrator has write permission. Through the remote searching capability, IT administrators can achieve the confidence they need to confirm the machines and data in their organization comply with internal policies.
