AvePoint Unveils Service to Discover and Classify Unstructured Data at RSA Conference Asia Pacific & Japan 2015

AvePoint File Analysis Services allow organisations to reduce risk of information breaches by making more informed decisions regarding which data to keep and remove

Singapore — July 21, 2015 — From the halls of the RSA Conference Asia Pacific & Japan 2015, AvePoint, the established leader in enabling enterprise collaboration across platforms and devices, today introduced AvePoint File Analysis Services to reduce the risk of privacy or sensitive information breaches by increasing visibility into an organisation’s unstructured data.

By discovering, mapping, and classifying the unstructured data – especially within file shares – organisations can make more informed decisions regarding which data to keep and remove. This way, the use of existing storage repositories and the transition to new collaboration platforms are optimised. With AvePoint File Analysis Services, organisations can identify which files reside where and who has access to them.

“In today’s marketplace where almost every employee is a content contributor, security officers are concerned with the lack of control and limited visibility throughout file shares as well as the dark data that lies within,” said Dana Simberkoff, Chief Compliance and Risk Officer, AvePoint. “With AvePoint File Analysis Services, organisations no longer have to wonder what information they have in existing repositories and leave themselves open to the risk of information breaches or privacy violations.”

With AvePoint File Analysis for file shares, organisations can address the following needs:

  • Data Discovery: Find out where data resides, identify existing privacy violations or information security risks, and determine who has permissions and has accessed content over time.
  • Data Tagging and Classification: Build data classification and taxonomy rules, enforce classification rules automatically, and identify and resolve inconsistencies between user-created and automated metadata.
  • Data Protection and Retention: Encrypt or redact sensitive information based on compliance rules, mark content as irrelevant or stale, and archive records to alternative locations with retention schedules.
  • Data Cleanup and Consolidation: Identify and eliminate duplicate copies of files, destroy old files and sensitive information based on business requirements, and move content to proper locations to simplify migrations.
  • Compliant Migration: Granularly select content and migrate to target locations on file systems or other systems – including Microsoft SharePoint, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business. Organisations can also freeze data for legal hold after completing migrations.
