Data Loss Prevention / Enterprise Search Solution Approach:
The Business Issue:
Increasingly, organizations are adding pro-active identification of unprotected personal and corporate information (e.g., PII, privileged passwords, intellectual property, etc.) to their enterprise risk management programs. The business drivers for this trend include:
- Risk management - many companies can't quantify their exposure from unprotected confidential information.
- It is more cost-effective to be pro-active than to respond to a data breach case whose costs now average over $200/data record.
- Regulatory compliance.
