DATA SECURITY

 

InfoGPS provides single use (Audit) and continuous software as a service solution (Monitoring) that finds sensitive non-structured data (for instance, account numbers and data that have been downloaded into an Excel spreadsheet) and then allows the user to determine if they need to better protect the data, delete it, move it, etc. Many data breaches have an origin in this unstructured data as the transactional, enterprise systems and their data is usually pretty well secured.
