Utilize backup tapes to control risk
Backup contains a copy of all business data across the network, including email and documents that may contain sensitive client records resulting in risk or liability for the organization. Auditing corporate networks for this information is time consuming and complex, whereas backup has already aggregated this content in one place.
Catalyst from Index Engines supports the full indexing and search of backup data for key sensitive content contained in files and email. Catalysts unique ability to directly index backup images (disk or tape) all content of email (including Exchange, PSTs, and Notes) can be searched for Personally Identifiable Information (PII), keywords, metadata and more. Using Catalyst's reporting feature content can be discovered and managed appropriately. Powerful disposition allows for automated migration of sensitive data to the appropriate archive or secure repository.
Users are continually generating content, content that can easily contain client credit reports, social security or credit card numbers and other sensitive data. Proactively monitoring networks and email for this content can be a challenge. However, leveraging backup in order to audit this content simplifies and automates the process of managing sensitive data and controlling corporate risk.
