Safend Discoverer

Data protection starts with data awareness

Part of our Safend Data Protection Suite; used with Safend Inspector

Safend Discoverer maps and locates sensitive data stored on organizational endpoints and network shares. Running in the background with minimal impact on productivity, Discoverer saves valuable time and improves efficiency by expertly mapping data and providing insight to unsecured data and faulty business processes. Armed with this information, administrators can improve security and compliance initiatives.

Safend Discoverer Advantages

Comprehensive Data Classification

Multiple data identification techniques can be combined for highly accurate data classification including:

  • Key word and pattern recognition of file text and meta data
  • Mathematical and logical verifiers
  • File types and properties including name, size, author, creation date etc
  • Data Fingerprinting

Built-in Compliance Policies

Includes preconfigured security policies designed to address specific regulatory compliance standards, such as PCI, HIPAA, and European privacy legislation.

Discovery Record

Receive detailed logs and reports on classified data located and mapped. The
records may include file path only, file and text or hidden copies of the file.

Flexible and Intuitive Management

Automatically synchronizes with Microsoft Active Directory and Novell eDirectory.

Do you know where your data is?

While Wave’s Safend Inspector controls sensitive data, Safend Discoverer first shows you where it is. Through keyword and pattern recognition, it raises a red flag on things like way too many credit card numbers on somebody’s laptop, or confidential client information stored where it shouldn’t be. Once you know about it, you can do something about it.

Justify new security measures

Security can seem pretty abstract. So can compliance. A big breach and a bigger lawsuit will fix that. But so will Safend Discoverer: finding all those credit card numbers and client info in the wrong places is sobering. Whatever cost (modest in this case) or passing inconvenience new security measures might entail suddenly looks doable.

A single console and a single agent: simple

Safend Discoverer is the only such tool that’s managed with a single console, and further, with a single software agent on each machine. In fact, all of Wave’s Safend products are based on the same agent. So if you start with Discoverer and Inspector and then want to add Reporter, all you need to do is apply the new license. But that’s more than simple, it’s smart: running multiple security softwares on the same machine can compromise stability and performance.
