Data Discover Challenges

Today's Challenges

Massive amounts of sensitive content is created across an enterprise every day

Download Whitepaper Content is King

Much of this content is sensitive in containing personally identifiable, patient and financial information, or even intellectual property. And worse yet, most enterprises have little to no visibility into where this content resides.

Added to the challenge of information volume is the growing number of sources and locations where that information is created and lives – many of which are not under IT control. The reality is that targeted attacks and advanced threats from outside are only part of the problem. Organizations face substantial risk and liability from actions originating from their own employees based on the types of content they create, and where they choose to save them.

Proofpoint Enterprise Data Discover takes an entirely new approach in using a cloud-based service that ensures discovery of sensitive content is a pain-free and simple process. Through continuous monitoring of centrally managed file servers and SharePoint sites, Enterprise Data Discover enables enterprises to automate discovery and remediation of risky content while mitigating the impact of a data breach.

Proofpoint Enterprise Data Discover provides simplified discovery of sensitive content throughout the enterprise at scale. By not leveraging a lock-it-all-down approach, we enable IS and IT teams to remain aware of issues without the complexity and inefficiency of incumbent data loss prevention (DLP) solutions.


Continuous Monitoring & Remediation

Proofpoint Enterprise Data Discover not only evaluates historical data across the enterprise, but also ensures that data is continually evaluated as end users create it across numerous content sources. Violations can be quarantined, moved or deleted before they are allowed to adversely affect the organization. For example, if corporate content is discovered in a Dropbox synchronization folder, the user can be alerted and the data moved to the IT and information security team’s sanctioned repository.

Proofpoint Enterprise Data Discover evaluates not just the metadata, but also the full text within the file. This enables IT and security departments to effectively identify credit cards, personal identification, license numbers, personally identifiable health information and more. This also enables better education of end users, and helps them to understand best practices for data management and security without hindering productivity or end user workflow.
