OTTAWA, April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Acaveo, developer of market leading file analysis software, announced it has teamed up with Osterman Research to determine how organizations are managing their unstructured data growth. With ever higher storage costs and security risks associated with massive amounts of unstructured data stored by organizations, Information Governance (IG) initiatives are not gaining momentum as quickly as expected.
Acaveo and Osterman Research found that, of over 100 responding enterprises with a median of 20 TB of unstructured data stored, only 37% regularly audited the amount of data that employees or business units produce. Only half of surveyed organizations had a IG program in place.
Some other survey findings include:
- Only 55% of surveyed enterprises perform regular file share cleanup exercises.
- Only 40% of surveyed enterprises had a defensible deletion program in place.
- Of those organizations that have an Information Governance program in place, 75% justify the program based on storage costs.
Acaveo is a market leading vendor of File Analysis software for enterprises seeking to reduce the cost and risk associated with their unstructured data. Headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, Acaveo is a Microsoft Partner with an international client base.
