HANDD deployed a Data Governance solution into a Global Media Brand. The solution scanned network fileshares for content. The Administration dashboard enabled our client to see who was accessing data the most (Data Ownership), who could access it (Access and Permission Management) and to be able to remediate and secure permissions.

Global Media Brand

A Government charity organisation wanted to classify their data and understand where that classified data was stored and who had access to it.

HANDD deployed Data Classification and Data Governance to work in tandem. By classifying their data the organisation was able to apply sensitivity whilst a Data Governance solution meant that using metadata tags they could see who was accessing sensitive content and where it was stored.

Within your thousands of data files Varonis Data Classification Framework gives context to your content by analysing four different components to show you data risk areas and how to lock down your data and keep it secure.

With an ocean of data it can be tough to see where potentially explosive data can be hidden, and even tougher to see exactly who is accessing it and when. Risky and uncharacteristic behaviours like data access spikes can give us a clue if we know when they are happening. But sometimes, just spotting this uncharacteristic behaviour can be too little, too late. Real time alerts and reporting can make the difference between timely data protection and a large punitive bill from a regulator.

Data Classification Framework scans and classifies data using algorithmic verification as it is added to the network, encompassing new data as it appears, unlike more traditional systems that are dependent on regular scanning to pick up sensitive data.

Product Details

Once data has been scanned, Data Classification Framework comes into its own, tracking and analysing data usage for statistical deviations and risky user-behaviors to notify you of risk areas to your data loss. This means you know exactly which areas you need to lock down first to best protect your business’ data. A data security application that can give our customers this level of confidence and reassurance was definitely one that our data protection specialists felt should appear within our carefully selected product portfolio.
