How is Netwrix Data Classification licensed?
Netwrix Data Classification is licensed by its applications, based on either a subscription-based or perpetual licensing model. Regardless of which licensing model you choose, most applications are licensed per employee.
Do you use agents to collect data?
No. Netwrix Data Classification operates in agentless mode, so it does not interfere with your data storage system. All index and classification information is collected, analyzed, stored and updated on a separate server.
How easy is the deployment and configuration process? How quickly will I start getting value?
It takes only a couple of hours to deploy Netwrix Data Classification. The time required for the initial classification depends on your data volume, connection speed, server performance and other factors. After that, new data will be indexed incrementally, which is faster.
The solution includes a wide set of predefined taxonomies that cover PII (GDPR), PHI (HIPAA), payment card data (PCI DSS), financial records and other types of protected information, so you can quickly find and secure your sensitive and regulated data. Netwrix also provides free professional consulting services to help you implement and fine-tune the technology to reduce data storage costs, improve user productivity and decision-making.
Can Netwrix Data Classification be integrated with DLP or IRM solutions?
Yes. Netwrix embeds classification information right into the file, increasing the accuracy of data loss prevention (DLP) or information rights management (IRM) tools and optimizing your data security efforts.
How do the files get classified?
Netwrix Data Classification doesn’t simply match character strings and rely on keywords and regular expressions. It also uses compound term processing and statistical analysis, which work in any language or vocabulary, regardless of grammatical style. The classification is performed by analyzing file content using rules defined in the taxonomies.
Can SQL Server Express Edition be used in Netwrix Data Classification deployments?
