AUSTIN, Texas, June 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Ground Labs, a global security software company that helps organizations locate and secure sensitive data across the enterprise, today announced Enterprise Recon 2.0. The solution scans for 100 different data points and personally identifiable information (PII), allowing organizations to protect critical information at every endpoint without relying on antiquated perimeter security methods.
Unbridled data growth is challenging most organizations to track information that can compromise security and compliance. Employees often unwittingly store sensitive data in many unsafe locations within local and network storage, professional email accounts, and the cloud. This creates significant security risks for them and their companies. It also complicates efforts to comply with increasingly stringent regulations, including HIPAA, PCI DSS and the GDPR, which affects every company that conducts business in Europe.
"Every day, PII and other sensitive information is leaked or stolen because organizations cannot keep track of all their data," says John Wethington, VP of Americas, Ground Labs. "Enterprise Recon 2.0 digs deep into the IT environment to recover the hidden data and provide options on how to deal with it properly."
Enterprise Recon 2.0 offers highly accurate and intuitive scanning capabilities that are compatible with a wide array of platforms, file formats and target types, including local and network storage, email accounts, the cloud and Office 365. When non-compliant data is located, the solution enables organizations to remediate the security risk by either permanently deleting the misplaced data, relocating it to a secure location, encrypting it in an AES zip file, or modifying it to be useless to criminals.
Enterprise Recon 2.0 automatically converts any unknown file types to ensure that no data is missed and companies receive a complete scan of their enterprise network. The tool also allows for historical monitoring of sensitive data, so organizations can track their security and compliance record over a 10-year period.
"Helping businesses secure their sensitive data is both our niche and our specialty," says Wethington. "Organizations often find themselves overwhelmed by the sheer number of security checks they need to put in place to meet compliance standards or stay secure. But the immediate solution is clear: find out what hackers want, and keep it away from them.
"Ground Labs is based on this premise, providing a simple solution to a previously insurmountable problem."
