One data view, enterprise-wide
One challenge of data auditing and risk management often lies in the complex mix of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data repositories within an organization. Imperva DSF Data Discover and Classify can help uncover, identify, and classify sensitive information from a wide range of data sources regardless of their data type.
Imperva DSF Data Discover and Classify provides visibility into sensitive data's exact location, volume, and context. Driven by machine learning, it allows data owners to find and identify data regardless of cloud or on-premise environment or data source.
Automated, cross-directory searches allow data professionals to do an extensive scan across multiple data repositories simultaneously in seconds, finding the information that is needed for an auditor question, an individual's data lookup, or a data deletion request with maximum accuracy at scan speeds up to 100,000 words per second.
Structured vs. Unstructured Data
In many organizations, unstructured data in the form of email, files from office productivity suites, PDF documents, and various other application files is the majority of their data. Organizations have very little insight into what most of those files contain or what risk exposure they hold. Many threats from insider mishaps, malicious actors, cyber-attacks, ransomware, and other sources are always lurking in enterprise environments with files spread across on-premises and cloud data repositories.

How data discovery and classification works
Imperva DSF Data Discovery and Classification uses regular expression rules, pattern matching, and predefined name-based or content-based data classification types as it scans data store contents to tag matches it finds. Predefined policy packs operationalize compliance with regulations such as GDPR and CCPA. You can add customized, customer-specific data classification types, and scans can be scheduled and repeated to ensure ongoing awareness of the types of data within an organization's data stores.
For unstructured data, additional machine learning and natural language processing algorithms assist in locating files. Machine learning is further leveraged to label and assign attributes to the found data automatically.
Data discovery and classification with no boundaries
With Imperva DSF you can standardize data security controls across large and complex enterprise data environments, so you have full visibility and centralized command of what is happening across all of your file stores and data assets, on-premises, in the hybrid cloud, and across multiple clouds.
