Manual data protection and management techniques are ineffective. They are labor intensive and prone to errors—users are in far too many security groups, groups are not properly aligned to data, and it is extremely difficult to discern which data is used by whom, who it belongs to, and which is not used at all.

Dynamically available metadata allows IT to answer questions that are otherwise unanswerable, such as:

  • Who has access to a data set?
  • Which data is sensitive?
  • Where is my sensitive data overexposed, and how do I fix it?
  • Who has been accessing it?
  • Which folders need an owner?
  • Who is the likely data owner?
  • Who has unnecessary permissions to each data set?
  • What data is unused?
