Netwrix announces pre-release demo of data discovery and classification functionality

The new Netwrix Auditor functionality enables organizations to address GDPR requirements by identifying, classifying and securing sensitive data

Netwrix Corporation, provider of a visibility platform for data security and risk mitigation in hybrid environments, today announced that attendees of a pre-release demo will have a sneak peek at the upcoming release of Netwrix Auditor – Data Discovery and Classification Edition. The demo is scheduled for 29 March, 2018, at 2 PM EDT, and registration is required.

Netwrix Auditor – Data Discovery and Classification Edition was developed in partnership with Concept Searching, the global leader in semantic metadata generation. The solution will enable complete visibility into where sensitive files are located, what content is inside them, who can access the files and who actually uses them.

The new edition will help organizations prove the effectiveness of their data security controls as required by GDPR and other regulations by enabling them to:

  • Gain a high-level view of the sensitive data they store
  • Discover any sensitive data stored outside of a secure dedicated location
  • Streamline regular attestations of access rights to sensitive data
  • Detect unauthorized activity around sensitive data

Netwrix Auditor is a visibility platform for user behavior analysis and risk mitigation that enables control over changes, configurations and access in hybrid IT environments to protect data regardless of its location. The platform provides security intelligence to identify security holes, detect anomalies in user behavior and investigate threat patterns in time to prevent real damage.

The new edition of Netwrix Auditor, developed in partnership with Concept Searching, will help organizations address critical GDPR requirements, relieve the compliance burden and ensure the security of business-critical data. Analysts say that only 30% of organizations worldwide are fully compliant with the new law, and that most are taking a piecemeal approach to adopting GDPR controls. We offer a more holistic approach to GDPR compliance and empower companies to provide hard evidence that sensitive files are not overexposed, that they reside only in dedicated safe locations with proper access controls and that they are not accessed by unauthorized personnel.
Michael Fimin, CEO and Co-founder of Netwrix
Organizations often have siloed content, due to geography or function, and lack visibility into the presence of privacy and sensitive information. The new edition of Netwrix Auditor, combined with Concept Searching’s ability to generate semantic multi-term metadata, delivers unprecedented insight into where vulnerabilities exist, mitigating enterprise risk, averting exposures, and ensuring all legal and regulatory compliance requirements are met. The solution offers proactive governance dictated by actions, and builds trust and transparency through the uncompromising protection of personal data in the organizational community.
Martin Garland, President of Concept Searching

Netwrix Auditor – Data Discovery and Classification Edition is scheduled for general release on 12 April 2018. To learn more about the solution or register for the pre-release demo, visit:
