Sensitive Data Discovery Service

Sensitive Data Discovery Service

The first step in securing data is knowing where that data lives. Avertium's Sensitive Data Discovery service is designed to answer that question & more.

Most companies know where their sensitive data is supposed to be, but in the complex world of multi-user IT environments, shadow IT, and free-flowing communication, sensitive information can migrate to unexpected places. 

Over time, companies can lose track of all the places sensitive data can exist; a dangerous evolution in the endeavor to mitigate vulnerabilities and adhere to legal, regulatory, and compliance requirements.

How can you protect your sensitive data and fulfill compliance if you don’t know where it is? That’s where Avertium comes in.
