A functional component of the DeviceLock DLP Suite, DeviceLock Discovery enables organisations to gain visibility and control over confidential “data at rest” stored across their IT environment in order to proactively prevent data breaches and achieve compliance with regulatory and corporate data security requirements.
By automatically scanning data residing on network shares, storage systems, and endpoint computers inside and outside of the corporate network, DeviceLock Discovery locates documents with exposed sensitive content, provides options to protect them with remediation actions, and can initiate incident management procedures by sending real-time alerts to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems used in the organization.
Depending on the network topology and other specifics of the protected IT environment, DeviceLock Discovery can perform scans in several modes: agentless, agent-based, and mixed scanning.
DeviceLock Discovery scans can be initiated by administrators manually or can be configured to run on a schedule. DeviceLock Discovery Agents can be remotely installed on and removed from target computers by the DeviceLock Discovery Server in a fully automatic and transparent process to end users.
