SecurityIQ Overview

Data access governance for all your data - structured and unstructured

Securing access to unstructured data is a growing challenge that, left unaddressed, can result in damaging data breaches. It’s estimated that more than 80% of all organizational data is unstructured, and that number doubles in volume every two years. The increasing cost and complexity of securing access to sensitive data, including validating who owns it and who can access it, is an important problem every enterprise needs to solve.

SecurityIQ can help you control who has access to unstructured data. With the appropriate visibility in place, you can identify where sensitive data resides, who has access to it, and how they are using it, and then putting effective controls in place to secure it. As a result, you will dramatically reduce IT risk and ensure compliance to corporate policies, industry mandates and government regulations.

Data Discovery and Classification

Locate your important data. SecurityIQ helps you quickly find and catalog sensitive data across the enterprise. It can search by data attributes (e.g., keyword rules) or by activity behavior (how the files are being used) to identify where your valuable data resides - in file shares, collaboration platforms and cloud storage solutions.

Permission Modeling

Know who has access to what. SecurityIQ quickly assesses who has access to data in the enterprise and how their access is granted. As part of this process, it can provide detailed analysis of effective access models and highlight ineffective and overexposed permissions that may put your organization at risk.

Real-Time Policy Alerts

Keep informed of violations in real-time. SecurityIQ monitors user activity on your files, alerting data owners and responsible parties when violations of your access policies are detected. A flexible policy engine allows you to create a comprehensive rule library for proactively monitoring access behavior. In addition, every monitored activity is enriched with its full security context that is crucial to understanding legitimate access from violations.

Business User Involvement

Involve the real data owners. Business users are the true owners of organization data since they are the ones who create and use it. SecurityIQ improves how data is secured by directly enlisting the help of data owners to control access. It allows the user community to elect data owners, and is the only product on the market to offer innovative crowdsourcing technology to make sure you know who truly owns your data.

Access Lifecycle Management

Keep data accesses updated. SecurityIQ ensures that users only have access to the data they need to perform their jobs by streamlining access requests via a self-service interface. In addition, SecurityIQ provides automated access reviews to ensure access to unstructured data is validated on an on-going basis. This can be performed directly within SecurityIQ or through integration with IdentityIQ.
