Mergers and Acquisitions
Incorporate Data Compliance in the M&A Process
For many businesses, growth strategies include the opportunity for mergers and acquisitions. Smart acquisitions planning already determines fit and alignment with the parent company’s goals. But now liability for owning personally identifiable information and sensitive data is an emerging factor that M&A activity must accommodate.
In any M&A deal, personal and sensitive data must be audited and reported on to understand any risks involved with owning this new data. PKWARE’s solutions have combined with Dataguise technology to help discover data and migrate it to centralized systems and platforms post-acquisition.
Automated discovery makes it possible to understand what sensitive data a potential acquisition has and where it is stored.
Understand what sensitive data a company has pre-acquisition and/or move it to ensure that only the data you intend in the format you intend it is moved.
Once data has been moved, a second scan can tell you exactly where everything is in the new environment for added audit protection.
Scan multiple terabytes of data, structured and unstructured, both on-premises and in the Cloud.
PKWARE solutions include capabilities that can encrypt, mask, redact, or otherwise remediate any sensitive information that is uncovered.
PKWARE can scan data on multiple different systems, including file shares, databases, the cloud, endpoints, and more to discover where sensitive data may be stored for each organization involved.
Fast and Simple
No extensive integration or professional services work is required to get started. PKWARE solutions do not require a single line of code and can deliver fine-grained and aggregated optics as to what sensitive data an acquired company has and where it resides.
into Data Sensitivity
Scan through all legacy data sources and create actionable insights that satisfy the fundamental questions that can calculate the risk of migration or enforce controls and remediation that will mitigate the risk prior to migration.
for the Move
With clear insights into the sensitivity of the data, PKWARE solutions automatically remediate sensitive data per established policies. Irreversible data masking is available to provision data for dev/test or analytics, while encryption protects data prior to the migration and only allows certain roles to decrypt the information.
