Strengthen your data security policy and unleash the full potential of your data

Exponential data growth is becoming painful for more and more organizations. It’s getting increasingly difficult to keep track of files generated by users every day and take the steps necessary to minimize the risk of data breaches and fines for noncompliance. If you are like most data security experts, you’re probably tired of all these data-related problems. Netwrix Data Classification can help ease your burden.
Apply data remediation workflows to reduce data exposure
Classify and spot confidential files in unsecure locations and move them to a secure quarantine area until you are ready to make informed decisions about what to do with them. Revoke excessive permissions to sensitive data from groups like “Everyone” so you can avoid the stress of data breaches and penalties for noncompliance.
Improve decision making and employee efficiency by organizing enterprise content
Eliminate clutter and put your data into a logical order to support effective collaboration and information sharing between knowledge workers. Help your users make better decisions by enabling them to easily find the exact electronic documents they need instead of having to sift through tons of unstructured data stored on file shares.
Get rid of unneeded data to reduce data management and storage costs
Don’t waste effort or storage on redundant, obsolete or trivial content that can be safely deleted or archived. Slash data storage costs and make painful budget approvals less frequent.
Respond to legal requests without disrupting your day-to-day activities
Ensure that your organization’s reputation remains unblemished during legal actions and no file that has lost its business value comes up at the wrong moment. Quickly locate all documents related to litigation and put them on hold to avoid a prolonged litigation process.
Meet privacy and compliance requirements with less effort and expense
Pinpoint data protected by GDPR, HIPAA, PCI DSS and other compliance standards and enforce retention policies based on data type. Satisfy requests from data subjects by identifying personal information related to a specific individual in minutes, not days.
