“In the digital age every business possesses sensitive personal information and what happened with Equifax underscores the fact that data management and data protection can no longer be viewed as an afterthought”

Egnyte, the leading cloud provider of smart content collaboration and governance for the enterprise, today announced they will be offering a free data governance assessment to all businesses via their content governance solution Egnyte Protect.

The Egnyte Protect software will run a complete scan and audit of the organization’s content repositories to determine what types of information is being handled, identify the most sensitive pieces of content, and locate all of the potential vulnerabilities. Egnyte’s team of security experts will work with the organizations’ IT/Compliance team to review the vulnerabilities and create a solution for resolving them, ensuring the safety of their information.

“We’ve never seen anything like this before when it comes to data breaches, nearly half the US population being effected by one incident,” said Egnyte CEO Vineet Jain. “In the digital age every business possesses sensitive personal information and what happened with Equifax underscores the fact that data management and data protection can no longer be viewed as an afterthought. It is our responsibility as business leaders to make sure we are investing as much time and energy into protecting our customers’ information as possible, which is why we felt the need to take the first step and offer a free data governance assessment to any businesses that are interested in improving their company’s security.”
