A global insurance organisation ran a GDPR driven Data Discovery and Governance project.  They wanted to gain visibility of their unstructured and stale data. One particular reason for this was to help them reduce the costs of unnecessary storage space, to then archive or delete the data correctly. The Data Discovery product deployed helped with the later challenge as well as remediating risks from group level access ensuring that only the employees needing to access certain data would have access to that group/data.

Global Insurance Organisation

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.

A Government Charity

With so many users in so many locations efficient Data Governance is essential to network security. By keeping tabs on who can access which data and how it can be used, you can massively reduce the chance of becoming a victim of malicious and inadvertent data breaches.

However, with so many files being produced daily by large teams across many departments, effective management needs powerful Data Governance Solutions that can help your IT teams keep control without burning out.

Data Governance
Deployment Example

A global media brand had no visibility of their enterprise data set. They couldn’t see who had been accessing data, who could access the data, or even what the data was. They were worried they were paying vast amounts for storage they didn’t need.

HANDD deployed a Data Governance solution that 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. Stale data became identifiable which enabled the company to remove it or to change it to cheaper storage solutions.
