Metalogix, the premier provider of collaboration content management software to move, manage and secure content on Office 365, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, Exchange, Box, Dropbox, Amazon, Google and other leading enterprise content management (ECM) systems, announced today the Technology Preview of Metalogix ControlPoint 6.0 with Sensitive Content Manager for Personally Identifiable Information (PII).
Sensitive Content breaches can occur in any business and the impact of these security incidents has become increasingly more pervasive. The IBM X-Force Threat Intelligence Report[i] cited over one billion PII related records were breached in 2014 alone, an increase of more than 25 percent compared to 2013. To prevent these inadvertent or malicious threats and breaches today, an organization must scan, detect, classify and then take action to prevent content breaches. Todays’ seismic growth in collaboration content requires an automated and intelligent solution that goes beyond older generation out-of-the-box or siloed filtering tools.
Metalogix Sensitive Content Manager, powered by a patent pending machine learning analysis engine, automates this critical security operation and bolsters Metalogix’ portfolio of compliance and content management solutions. This innovative solution surpasses existing pattern matching and regular expression Data Loss Prevention solutions to provide more accurate and intelligent content scanning and identification. When integrated with ControlPoint 6.0, Metalogix’ permissions management solution, it automates the compliance lifecycle for Intelligent Sensitive Content Management.
“Inappropriate storage, access and distribution of sensitive content combined with inadvertent and malicious insider threats can have significant and lasting negative financial, brand and legal impacts on organizations. Just this past year, we witnessed breaches at AT&T, Anthem Inc. and Sony. These breaches demonstrate the level of impact on customer retention, employee privacy and shareholder value,” said Steven Murphy, CEO, Metalogix. “With SharePoint, email and file content storage in the cloud is on a meteoric rise. Organizations that do not automatically detect, classify and also apply the appropriate access permissions to sensitive content open themselves up to the possibility of severe penalties, lawsuits and shareholder complaints. Therefore, it was not a surprise when these requirements became a top three operational imperative to our 20,000 licensed clients. Metalogix is very excited to introduce this next generation solution, which delivers a vastly more intelligent and easier way to identify, manage and secure sensitive content.”
NEXT GENERATION MACHINE LEARNING TECHNOLOGY SETS SOLUTION APART
Unlike conventional Data Loss Prevention and content breach solutions, Sensitive Content Manager is powered by an advanced machine learning analysis engine. The Metalogix solution surpasses existing out-of-the-box Data Loss Prevention engines by providing a far higher degree of accuracy in context aware identification, thus producing fewer false negatives and false positives. The solution’s detection and classification capabilities will evolve over time in order to meet future data protection challenges like HIPAA, PHI, PCI and ITAR, among others.
Murphy added, “By combining machine learning sensitive content detection and classification through our market leading permissions and compliance administration solution ControlPoint 6.0, Metalogix is leap frogging traditional tools on the market. Metalogix Sensitive Content Manager now provides customers with the ability to migrate and store content with the assurance that they are in compliance with both regulated and data retention policies. They can now feel comfortable knowing they have significantly reduced the risks associated with data breaches and inadvertent insider threats.”
As the complexity and sheer amount of content in SharePoint environments grow, so does the difficulty in organizing, managing and securing content. By combining the machine learning technology with ControlPoint 6.0, Metalogix provides the most complete solution for real-time and bulk identification of sensitive content while automating the management and application of corrective actions. This extends ControlPoint’s industry leadership, which has already helped more than 7,500 shipped license clients properly manage and secure their SharePoint environments.
