DATA MAP

The Data Map is a one-stop solution for tracking all the data and data-related processes across the organization. It gives an extensive understanding of what data is created, how it is classified, where it is stored, and its transmission within and outside the organization.

The Data Map contains information about all systems within the organization and how data flows from one system to another.

 

The Meru DataMap integrates many sources of information in a meaningful and easy-to-use format. It brings clarity to the current state and covers all the aspects related to privacy, compliance and legal, IT, security, and records management.

Auto Classification with Machine Learning

Meru integrates classification requirements from security, privacy, business, and retention to give you a comprehensive view for managing compliance.

We evaluate data to find patterns and then label, group, and automatically classify information according to predefined categories and standards.​

 

Auto classification allows retention and security policies to be actionable and dynamic.
