Frequently Asked Questions

How do I deploy Data Discovery?

Our platform integrates directly with your SaaS and data infrastructure products (e.g. O365, Confluence, Exchange) via their native APIs. For on-premise risk assessment and remediation the Data Discovery Endpoint Agent can be installed on Windows, Mac or Linux servers or PCs/laptops as simple as pushing out an MSI file. Agents can also be installed on cloud servers including S3 buckets.

How does GeoLang Sensitive Data Discovery actually work?

Data Discovery discovers data and assesses your risk across your digital estate – on-premise, in the cloud or hybrid. Data Discovery integrates with cloud services via API and/or via agents for endpoints and servers. You can decide which services you wish to connect to. The GeoLang Manager is hosted on-premise or in the cloud on your servers, so you are always in control of your data – nothing is shared with us. For larger organisations, an enterprise architecture with sub-managers covers multiple locations and jurisdictions.

How does Data Discovery mitigate data risk?

Empowering the data owner in a highly automated remediation process is the key to successfully mitigating risk. Data Discovery’s highly automated workflow supports end user remediation and compliance training as well as administrator lead quarantine and delete options. Data Discovery also detects and visibly classifies sensitive data in Alfresco, O365 and Atlassian Confluence to support both end user education and data loss prevention.

How long does it take to deploy?

For most systems it takes just a few minutes to deploy. Because GeoLang Data Discovery is cloud-native and integrates directly via API, customers are typically up and running within a few minutes or half an hour. For SaaS apps like O365, Confluence, and Alfresco, there’s no additional configuration or setup required beyond switching on the connectors. If you would like to extend the capability to endpoints and servers, it is as simple as pushing out an MSI file. Compare this to traditional endpoint or network-based tools that often take weeks to install.

How does Data Discovery help with compliance and risk assessments?

Pre-defined and bespoke rule sets, including GDPR, PCI, or HIPAA are supported along with granular regular expressions, keyword lists and compound queries. Data Discovery searches unstructured datasets stored in over 200+ formats across your digital estate. Our “find files similar to” function means you can quickly build repositories from dispersed enterprise data. Highly automated remediation processes mean we are not another tool simply reporting to a SIEM infrastructure.

Can I conduct real-time searches?

Data Discovery discovers, extracts and protects sensitive and regulated data both at rest and in real-time. The Real-time Protection feature within the system allows users to manage the movement of their sensitive data in transit, alerting the end user and system administrator in real time. Data Discovery can also be used for forensics.
