IQProtector File Protection

OVERVIEW

IQProtector uniquely embeds protection within the data itself at the moment of creation - instantly identifying, classifying, and persistently tagging all new, modified, or accessed sensitive data from any origin.

Challenge and Solution

THE CHALLENGE THE SOLUTION

Analysts estimate that up to 80% of organizational data is unstructured. Sensitive organizational data in spreadsheets, documents, presentations, and other files resides in multiple locations – file servers, storage arrays, NAS, and SAN. In today’s de-perimiterized environment, collaboration is crucial - but sharing data necessitates exposing it. Traditional data protection solutions inhibit productivity by applying protection unnecessarily, and items classified as “sensitive” easily lose this classification if not saved in a predefined format or network location, or if modified out of original context.

IQPROTECTOR PERSISTENT FILE PROTECTION

Unlike traditional solutions that attempt to control users, channels or storage, IQProtector protects data - uniquely embedding protection within the data itself at the moment of creation or initial organizational access. IQProtector agents on enterprise hosts instantly identify and classify all new, modified, or accessed sensitive data from any origin. This data, identified with zero false-positives, is persistently tagged, enabling absolute control over access and usage.
