Know Your Data Before You Move It

Manage Risks in Hidden Data with Confidence

Intelligent Cloud & Data Migration Begins with a Data Inventory

Anacomp has provided information governance, regulatory compliance, and records digitization services for over 100 federal government agencies

It’s human nature to make mistakes in securing sensitive data. And to compound that problem, there is the issue of employee turnover. As employees leave positions, each leaves a “lost” trail of files that were held onto “just in case” that contain many gigabytes of potentially sensitive files, passwords or DROT (Duplicated, Redundant, Obsolete, Trivial) files that take up expensive and unstructured space in data storage.  And those unknown files may expose you to risk.

In fact, our partner NowVertical found from their research, that every organization may hold as much as 10 GB of unstructured DROT data per employee. Further, they found that typically 42% of this data is company sensitive and should be encrypted, protected or deleted before cloud migration. 

And 1% of files may even contain security risks like passwords in plain text with encryption keys alongside databases. A single, small mistake can lead to serious reputational and financial damage to an organization, and there are plenty of examples already in the news. 

Without knowing what you have, you can’t know what needs to be protected, deleted or remediated prior to migration. 

But there is a solution. Know what you have before before you move it.

Anacomp’s data visibility and digital transformation solutions enable comprehensive indexing via content, source and attribute mapping for all of your data risk, data migration and compliance management. 

Our services and software include digitization, AI/machine learning and OCR content extraction, automated indexing of high-volume petabytes of files with customizable metadata, federated search for compliance and regulatory requests, and a continuously updated, drill-down inventory of digital files with notifications for interdepartmental management.
