With the continued pace of digital transformation, unstructured data—data stored in SharePoint, file shares, collaboration platforms, NAS devices and more, both on-premises and cloud-based—accounts for 80% of enterprise data and will continue to grow exponentially. Governing access to that data is a challenge for organizations, as there is often no easy way to provide insight into where the data resides, who has ownership and who is entitled to access the data.
SecurID Governance & Lifecycle delivers a next-generation open framework to enable a sustainable model for data access governance. It provides visibility, monitoring, certification, remediation and reporting of user access permissions to data stored on file servers (Windows, Linux and Unix), NAS storage and SharePoint servers.
Gaining control of the massive volume of unstructured data is a critical IT and business objective given the rapid pace of digital transformation, including the recent accelerated shift to people working beyond the traditional secure perimeter. The data access governance capability of SecurID Governance & Lifecycle empowers data owners to control access and map users, data owners and access permissions— all to eliminate the exfiltration of sensitive data, reduce threats and improve an organization’s digital risk posture.
