Effective governance ensures that an organization’s information is always available, secure and accurate. It requires automation, intelligence and proven oversight controls across content sources. Manual processes and outdated systems are not up to the challenge, leaving organizations struggling with inefficiency, increased costs and greater risk.

Information governance solutions offer policy-driven automation and integration that helps organizations stay compliant, secure and productive.

Key benefits

Impact business and achieve better results.

  • Control content sprawl

    End the proliferation of extraneous or poorly managed content across different collaboration and communication platforms.

  • Intelligently classify large content volumes

    Scan repositories to classify content, identify privacy risks and out of place items and route them to secure content services.

  • Enforce information security

    Secure information according to a range of regulatory and business factors while enforcing active policy and process driven protections.

  • Prepare for a move to the cloud

    Classify legacy content and optimize cloud migration approaches to maintain user productivity while respecting regulatory compliance.

Business impacts

  • Content management

    Without proper record-keeping, business processes become chaotic and lead to long-term risk. Achieving information governance maturity requires automation and oversight. Content services with integrated governance make compliance possible.

  • Legacy content remediation

    Large volumes of legacy content, such as historical file shares, can contain risky and obsolete files. Manual review to determine what to preserve and secure is difficult and time-consuming. Quickly index, classify and review legacy content.

  • Content security

    Organizations need to make content accessible to staff. Yet, content is a valuable resource and making it more accessible to staff can also make it more accessible to criminals. Implement policy-driven, role-based access to reduce exposure.

  • Holds and discovery

    Legal actions demand rapid responses to legal holds and discovery. Without the ability to audit access and disposition of content, defensibility is compromised. Leverage technology-assisted content review.
