Our products help you govern and protect your enterprise data.

Flexible and business-centric information governance is critical to manage the more distributed, dynamic, and diverse data in enterprises today. 

This becomes more important as data grows exponentially across thousands of devices. 

The Data Map provides a comprehensive footprint of data and data-related processes across the organization. It is a catalog of what data is created, how it is classified, where it is stored and how it travels within and outside the organization. A fully functional and current Data Map helps to achieve the objectives of the organization’s Privacy Program including:   

• Support world-class privacy management 

• Allow clear definition of roles, responsibilities and accountabilities around data and data usage 

• Provide more transparency and visibility about data, controls, and guidelines to all stakeholders 

• Serve as a foundational element necessary to meet regulatory guidelines and track compliance metrics 

• Enable innovation, continuous improvement and more effective decision making
