The key to automated data security

As enterprise data volumes continue to increase, cloud services and mobile devices are fundamentally changing the way we store and access information. With each step we take into our new digital environment, we create new opportunities for sensitive information to fall into the wrong hands.

Traditional solutions like network and device security are all but obsolete when an organization’s network is the internet itself. A new approach to information security—based on data discovery, classification, and protection that applies to sensitive data itself—is the key to remaining secure and competitive in a rapidly-changing world.

Until now, however, data discovery technology has provided limited value to the companies that use it. Discovery products that simply generate lists of files containing sensitive data leave organizations searching for additional solutions that can actually protect the information.

Integrated discovery and remediation

PKWARE integrates data discovery into solutions that encrypt, redact, or otherwise remediate sensitive information, making it easier than ever before to find and secure your organization's critical data. Whether sensitive information is stored on file servers or endpoint devices, PKWARE technology can identify and protect it as soon as it appears, ensuring that it will remain in compliance with your data security policies.

Real-time policy enforcement

PKWARE software agents continuously monitor laptops, desktops, and file servers for sensitive information. Each time a file is added or modified, PKWARE initiates a scan based on the organization’s definition of sensitive data. If the data fits one of the defined patterns, the system can initiate classification, encryption, redaction, or other forms of remediation.

The discovery and remediation process is transparent to end users, while PKWARE’s Smartkey technology ensures that the organization maintains complete control over encryption activity.
