Governance, Risk & Compliance (GRC)
Unstructured data in organizations is exploding and out of control. It encompasses all distinct files—documents, images, spreadsheets, videos and audio files—stored on servers, NAS devices and in semi-structured repositories like Sharepoint. Managing and protecting this data presents enormous challenges:
- Permissions: Determining who has access to a data set, which folders a user or group can access and identifying excess, unneeded permissions
- Access Auditing: IT can't answer questions like, "Who accessed or deleted my data?"
- Data Ownership: IT can't reliably identify business owners of data sets, and has even less ability to involve data owners in the governance process.
- Operational: Manual permissions and group changes are unreliable. Business users and data owners are unable to effectively make decisions about data access.
- High Risk: Stale, excess permissions are rarely revoked. Data is open to global access groups with no reliable way of remediating access without impacting the business.
