DataGravity for Virtualization Essentials Edition
Gain Data Security and Actionable Insights from Your Virtual Environment DataGravity for Virtualization
Understanding Your Data is the Key to Protecting It
Whether a hacker is breaking into your computing environment, a contractor is downloading privileged information, or an employee is inadvertently saving budget files to the wrong file share, your organization is continuously exposed to data security threats. Network-centric security solutions simply guard the perimeter, missing the fundamental truth that you need to understand what data you have and where you are most at risk. If you are like most organizations, meaningfully answering these questions is often complicated by data access policies that are difficult to enforce across a growing sprawl of virtual machines (VMs). It is simply too easy for data to get lost or forgotten. Unmanaged data, along with the ambiguity as to who and how it is being accessed, is a significant security risk that could lead to loss and noncompliance. DataGravity shines a light on this dark data, so you can easily identify and protect your high value information.
