Reduce organisation risk by analysing and identifying files that contain potential threats to the organisation from both internal and external sources, including sensitive information such as PII.
Automate the process of declaring records in a records management system for greatly simplified compliance.
Optimise storage media for content based on its value and stage of life, helping to facilitate the intelligent migration of data and cost-effective storage.
ControlPoint Use Cases
Migration To The Cloud Or Storage Technology Refresh
Many organisations are considering replacing their existing Storage technology or migrating their data to a hosted cloud-based infrastructure. Moving the data can be time consuming and lengthy, which both carry a high potential risk to the business.
Merely copying the existing data files between platforms isn’t viable, given that on average, 70% of the information is either Redundant, Obsolete or Trivial. ControlPoint provides invaluable insights to the “make-up” of the data files, and by using ControlPoint GUI, it becomes simple to classify the information based upon its content and usage, thus allowing the data migration activities to be streamlined, reduce the associated risk and only action (move) the relevant data files.
