Classify Sensitive Data
in Your Environment

Get greater visibility over the content of your files as Lepide automatically scans and classifies data related to PII, PHI, PCI, IP and other regulated data.


Data Classification Software From Lepide

The data discovery and classification software from Lepide helps give you more context around your most sensitive data, so that you easily identify potential areas of exposure and apply the correct access controls. See how many of your files contain sensitive data, where they are distributed, what type of data you have and more.

Improve Data Security

Identify which of your data needs to be the focus of your security strategy, which data is potentially overexposed, which data applies to compliance regulations and address data that is stale.

Easier Compliance Response

Many compliance regulations require you to know exactly where your sensitive data is so that you can easily meet requirements such as the GDPR’s access requests and the right to be forgotten.

Remove False Positives

False positives are a common problem many classification tools face. Proximity scanning enables you to filter out false positives from your scan to improve the accuracy of your classification.

How Data Classification Works

Incremental Scanning

After an initial discovery and classification scan, data can be classified at the point of creation/modification incrementally to give you a scalable solution that works quickly and efficiently.

Wide Range of File Types

You can scan a wide range of different file types, including word documents, text documents and excel spreadsheets, to find out where your sensitive data resides.

Prioritize Data Based on Risk

Categorize and score data based on the risk value of the content so that you can focus your user behavior analytics and permissions strategies on the data that matters most.

Giving Context to Data Classification

With our data classification technology, you can identify where sensitive data resides within your organization, who has access to it and what your users are doing with it. You can also see which of your data falls under compliance regulations that you might be bound by.

Determine what kind of protected information you have in your systems, including financial information, protected health information, payment card information and more.

Once you know where this data is and what makes it sensitive, you can apply the correct access controls to ensure that it is not left overexposed.

Use Data Classification to Set Appropriate Access Rights

Easily identify the owners of sensitive files so that you can make better decisions about should be able to access your sensitive data.

Proactive classification enables you to work towards a model of least privilege, where users only have access to the data they need to do their jobs.

Using Data Classification to Improve Data Security

Having more context about what classifications your data falls under enables you to more easily spot suspicious or unwanted user behavior.

Unauthorized permissions changes, anomalous user behavior, multiple failed access attempts, and other signs of data breaches can be captured, reported on and alerted on in real time.

If the worst does happen, you can quickly identify the severity of a breach by determining what types of data were involved.

We support over 85 file types (Including image files).

Some of the more popular file types supported are: .doc, .xls, .sxc, .vsd, .rtf, .pdf, .ots, .sti, .txt, .xml, .pps, .stc, .csv, .ods, .ppt, .eml, .sub, .sxw, .aacdb, .dwg, .zip, .rar, .log, .mdb, and more.

When we search for specific patterns, we take into account the structure of the pattern we are searching for. For example, if a pattern must have a specific sequence of numbers/letters, we will only classify the correctly structured sequence. We also use proximity searching to eliminate false positives by giving the discovered pattern more context on the surrounding phrases/keywords in the file.
Outside of the 100’s of predefined rules, there is also the option to easily create your own rules, values and templates for discovery and classification specific to your business needs or requirements.
There are many different pre-defined rules and templates built into the solution that you can enable out of the box. If a pattern is found in the file that matches the rule applied, Lepide will tag and classify the data respectively. We will then index the file for reporting / alerting. The discovery and classification can either be run periodically across the full dataset or on the fly as and when the files are created / modified.
There are many variables that will determine the length of time it would take to successfully complete a scan, including the size of the dataset, the size of the file, the file types and the number of patterns/rules you have configured the solution to search the data for. We benchmark against industry standards and speeds when it comes to data discovery and classification.

We recommend running a full, deep scan across your data on a periodic basis (monthly or quarterly) and enable classification on-the-fly in the interim. Every time a new file is created/modified, Lepide will scan the files in real time to identify if there has been any newly created sensitive data
