Companies are Paying for 60% More Storage Than They Need

Gartner found that in 2019 the average annual storage cost per raw TB of capacity was $7381, and the average number of raw TBs supported per storage FTE is 4,1681. With organizations using only 40% of stored data, this adds up to a lot of wasted expense, and that figure doesn’t even take into account the cost of maintaining storage, which runs another $111k to $164k in IT labor hours a year.

Regulated information covered by Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Payment Card Industry (PCI) and new regulations protecting privacy like CCPA, will require better security protection and faster retrieval than data that is not regulated or sensitive. You need to figure out:

What information is regulated?
How frequently each will be accessed?
How long to keep each type of information?
If you don’t want to keep the data – what to do about it?

StealthAUDIT Delivers…

Stale Content Identification

Locate content that has not been modified in a defined period of time to identify areas where clean-up efforts can be focused.

Content Size Reports

Identify where file sizes may be exceptionally large in order to identify areas where removing a small number of files can free up the most storage space.


Identify most probable owner by monitoring for the most active users, or by notifying the original user’s manager.


Quarantine files by moving them to a secure location, removing all access and leaving a file pointer behind.


Automatically delete data that has exceeded file retention policies, or that has not been accessed.


Schedule and create attestation reports which are sent to the line of business owners to validate data retention or deletion.
