DISCOVERY DATA AT REST & DATA IN USE
Data discovery allows to find, explore, transform, and analyze data, and thus gain deeper insight from all kinds of information. Data at rest is information stored. While users tend to control data in use, protection of data at rest should not be underappreciated. The most valuable information doesn’t necessarily get channeled – it is often immobile.
KNOW YOUR DATA
Whether it is located on a hard drive or external device, it is as vulnerable as data in motion, although securing data at rest often seems disparaged compared to guarding information that is being transmitted.
The main question is how to secure data at rest. By securing data at rest you learn about where all the pieces of your data are placed and how to find them, which is often a problem for many companies. Sensitive information can be easily attacked if it is invisible or improperly managed. To ensure balanced business governance, keep track of your status and document any causes for profit declines.
