data discovery


You may not realize how much of your data
requires protection, or that your most valuable, sensitive information may be vulnerable.

Also, data protection regulations cover a
significant range of information including:

• Personally identifiable information (PII)
• Financial data
• Health data
• Payment card information
• Intellectual property
• Emerging data risk and privacy categories

ADM empowers you to identify all your sensitive
data, based on a variety of use cases and search
criteria, to ensure you’re not exposed.

Do You Know...

  • Where your sensitive data is stored in data repositories, on premises, and in the cloud?

  • What data is protected and how?

  • If your sensitive data is exposed to risk from insiders and third parties?

  • Who has access to sensitive data and how you’re regulating that access?

ADM can answer these questions and help you find and secure your most sensitive and vulnerable data.
