Data Discover

Information Protection

Proofpoint’s Information Protection provides out­-of-­the-­box visibility without the complexity and costs of legacy data protection tools. Easily manage sensitive data in motion (as it’s sent via email), prevent data exposure and inappropriate access to data (in SaaS applications), and visualise data at rest (stored on-premises). Get automated classification – all powered by our flexible, cloud­-based platform.


Find and Fix Compliance Issues

Data discovery software provides dependable and automated content analysis. Track information across your network, including file shares, SAN and NAS storage, and SharePoint sites. Sensitive data discovery identifies data that is the most at risk to exposure, such as PII and PHI. Remediate compliance breaches in real time; quarantine, delete, or revoke access to exposed data.


Deploy in Minutes

The cost and time involved in deploying information protection tools can be the biggest hurdles to safeguarding your business-critical data. Our cloud-based data discovery software platform deploys quickly for unmatched time to value. Many customers deploy in just 90 minutes and see tangible benefits in 24 hours. Data Discover also makes the most of any existing investments you’ve made in Proofpoint Email and Information Protection. It shares more than 80 template-based policies across files on network shares and SharePoint sites, including PCI, HIPAA, and PII. You can create custom policies and apply them to both data in motion and data at rest.

Find Sensitive Data

Sensitive data is sprawled across the enterprise. In most cases, you have limited visibility into where it’s stored and who has access to it. This data presents alarming risk ranging from breaches—from insiders and outsiders alike—to compliance violations. 

Find your sensitive data with Data Discover. The data discovery tool takes a minute to install, runs automatically, and gives you an overview of where your sensitive data lives.

Visualise Risks

Incident remediation queues often bring more noise than insight. Data Discover helps solve this problem. Our visualisation tools, such as heat maps and excess-exposure charts, show you where you’re most vulnerable. For example, payment credit industry (PCI) violations alone can overwhelm your IT staff with thousands of incidents. Data Discover fast-tracks your remediation effort by quickly highlighting unique PCI violations that expose your sensitive data or make it too widely accessible. Given their value to attackers, these sensitive files are the ones most likely to be stolen in a breach.
