Data Profiling

Combining advanced File Analytics with in-depth reporting

Know what you hold, reduce storage capacity & maximise the value of your data with minimal cost & risk

Data compliance is more critical than ever in todays dynamic business climate. Few organisations have the resources and time to manually manage and maintain the “information lifecycle of data” within their companies, whilst also planning for future data growth. Simply adding more storage capacity each time capacity is exceeded only adds and compounds the infrastructure management burden, creating potential points of failure and consumes precious IT budgets and resources. 

Our unique platform, powered by Microfocus’s ControlPoint combines advanced file analytics with in-depth reporting capabilities. This provides you with an invaluable insight into how your organisation is generating, storing and consuming data, enabling you to make informed decisions based on your data. 

ControlPoint enables you to streamline your storage footprint, significantly reduce your backup and restore times, simplifying your disaster recovery process and enhances your data compliance for GDPR.

Clients we've helped

Our expertise. Your questions answered

Data Management isn’t relevant to us?

How are you satisfying your compliance obligations as a data owner?  For example, how would you respond to a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) within the allocated time period (20 working days).

We don’t have any ROT data?

That’s interesting to hear as the majority of organisations we have worked with have as much as 44+% ROT data taking up space in their primary storage! If you were required to report a data loss, would you know the level of risks associated with that data? Would you be able to inform the ICO and other relevant parties?

We do recognise this as an issue but we simply don’t have the time or resource to tackle it?

That’s where SES can help you. We can quickly deploy ControlPoint to scan and index your data and then put in place automation to apply policy-based rule sets. We can then help you to decide what to focus on to get the greatest benefit with the least effort.

Storage is cheap these days so it’s not a priority

We hear this a lot actually and while it may be true there is still an operational impact and cost. For example, your backups (and more importantly the restores) are taking far longer than they need to. Also, if you plan to move to the cloud you will end up paying for far more capacity than you need to.

We don’t use HPE software tools or technology.

Even though ControlPoint was a HPE software product it is platform agnostic and can be used in conjunction with any vendor hardware/software.

I’m sure we can manually respond to a Data Subject Access Request (DSAR) if required.

If you only need to search 5,000 or 10,000 documents, you could probably deploy a team of people to review each document and respond within 20 workdays. But, organisations typically have millions of unstructured data files, not including ever-expanding mailboxes.  Manually locating materials on this scale is an impossible task, ControlPoint can quickly solve this problem. ControlPoint can search and find documents quickly and efficiently, allowing you to respond to the requesting party in a timely and accurate manner.
