Digital Guardian Data Discovery


Sensitive Data Discovery Across the Enterprise and the Cloud

Fortra™’s Digital Guardian® Data Discovery uses automatic, configurable scanning of local and network shares using specific inspection policies to ensure sensitive content is discovered wherever it is located. Data discovery is extended to the cloud through integrations with leading cloud storage providers to scan repositories, enabling encryption, removal, or other automated remediation of sensitive data before the file is shared in the cloud - data that is already stored in the cloud can be scanned and audited at any time.
