STEALTHbits’ Data Access Governance solutions provide complete visibility into unstructured data, enabling organizations of any size to quickly Discover, Prioritize, Remediate and Protect against high-risk access conditions across Active Directory, File Systems, SharePoint, and beyond. With unstructured data expected to increase by more than 600% in the next 5 years and the continued concern with high profile and damaging data breaches, organizations can turn to STEALTHbits’ solutions for a pragmatic approach to mitigating security risk by:
- Highlighting and remediating where the greatest levels of risk exist (Open Access Remediation)
- Integration of unstructured data entitlements in existing Identity & Access Management platforms (ISIM, SailPoint, Aveksa, FIM)
- Reducing unstructured data volume through low-level activity analysis (Stale Data Clean-up)
- Real-time Monitoring and Blocking of Active Directory & File System changes, including fine grain administrative user control (Change & Access Monitoring)
