Brief Overview

Today’s organizations face a perfect storm when it comes to managing and controlling data. Industry regulations mandate that organizations do all they can to protect data from unauthorized access, yet we see from the growing numbers of damaging data breaches, that this task is easier said than done. And when we look at the many variables at play, it’s not difficult to see why. More data exists than ever before, there are more ways of sharing, IT systems are more complex, and perimeters are increasingly blurred. Add in human error and the risks grow exponentially.

In a recent survey, data visibility was cited as the number one cybersecurity weakness for CISOs working in financial services organizations (50%), closely followed by an inability to meet regulatory challenges (39%). Without knowing what data an organization has, where it resides or how it travels, how can it begin to secure it effectively and achieve regulatory compliance?

For IT and security leaders looking to improve data visibility and control, HelpSystems provides an automated data security software suite. The solution allows organizations to understand the data it has, and keep it secure throughout its lifecycle – no matter where it resides (on-premise or in the cloud), or how it’s shared.

Data classification identifies and prioritizes the data that needs protecting, including critical unstructured data such as intellectual property. To minimize the risk of a data breach when the data is in transit, Adaptive Data Loss Prevention software automatically removes sensitive data from emails and documents transferred to and from the cloud. It also protects data from phishing or ransomware attacks, as the data is sanitized as it is transferred, sent, or received. Finally, an automated Managed File Transfer solution provides a secure and compliant way to share data within and outside the organization, making collaboration easy.
