Know what data to retain, delete, and archive

Index and classify your data according to policies you define. With DataGravity, search and filtering capabilities allow you to find collections of files of interest according to keywords and topics, classification tags, file types, timeframe, and location. 

Reduce data liabilities and legal risks

Unmanaged data stores and file shares substantially increase the risks to your organization.  DataGravity helps you proactively secure your sensitive data to prevent compliance and security violations.  Make informed decisions of what data can be deleted to reduce the scope of forensic and incident response activities, e-Discovery costs and unnecessary liability. 

Automate and Enforce Governance Policies

Search across creation, access and modification date ranges to find dormant data kept beyond its useful life.  Identify and remove files lingering past their required retention date.  Built-in alerting and periodic reporting empower you and your organization to effectively enforce policies over time.
