    Provider: GeoLang (UK-based Cybersecurity Solution Provider)

    Snapshot and Example Use Cases

    The Ascema Sensitive Data Discovery platform accurately locates sensitive data and intellectual property across a multitude of data repositories such as endpoints, servers, external drives, USBs, Office 365, and cloud storage environments including IONOS, AWS, and Azure. This capability allows for a variety of use cases for legal, business, and information technology professionals in the eDiscovery ecosystem to include:

    • Proactive location, analysis, review, notification, and extraction of sensitive and high-value data in real-time across live enterprise environments.
    • Reactive data breach review (analysis, review, notification, and extraction) of compromised data for sensitive and high-value data.

    Why Sensitive Data Discovery and Extraction?

    Data protection tools can – and should – enhance a human-lead decision-making process. Current security solutions typically result in thousands of lines of reports that are then fed into Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems which, in turn, churn out yet more data.

    Ascema Data Discovery and Extraction offers a powerful solution to what is becoming an increasingly prevalent problem. Instead of ever more lines of reports, sensitive data remediation is provided by end-users via elegant alerts and simple to use dashboard. Highly automated with dual reporting, security teams are now confident that sensitive data is being managed effectively by data owners themselves.

    Data Discovery: The First Critical Step Before Data Extraction

    Ascema identifies sensitive and regulated data both at rest and in transit. Automated and flexible search task options use a combination of pre-defined rules, bespoke regular expressions, and complex queries.

    Data discovery and extraction has never been simpler. Once extracted the repository matches can be easily reviewed in context for further filtering. Sub-searches and compound queries are simple to perform with outputs either to targeted repositories, in the cloud or on-premise, as well as being downloadable or exported in a variety of formats. Enterprise reporting via user-friendly dashboards and the dynamically generated Data Discovery Executive Summary (HERO Report) provide additional data visibility to ascertain data threat patterns and user activity in real-time and offer flexible remediation options such as alert, quarantine or remove.
