This feature, which is available as a part of the company's data governance solution, Protect, can be deployed instantly with no additional hardware required.

Protect uses advanced machine learning to quickly identify the most likely areas where GDPR-sensitive information could be located in their content repositories. In real-time, the system will find and classify the sensitive content in those areas first, such as credit card numbers, national healthcare identification, and phone numbers. This makes the time-to-value nearly instantaneous, saving administrators time and money by not having to create their own complex configurations for finding and securing sensitive personal information.

"The new GDPR has put a lot of pressure on organizations to be accountable for the data they are managing and challenging them to take responsibility for the safeguarding of this information, which I believe is long overdue," said Jeff Sizemore, VP, governance and compliance, Egnyte. "What we have built with Egnyte Protect is a simple, fast, and effective way for organizations to answer that challenge, giving them complete control over the entire content lifecycle - from creation to retirement. The new GDPR policy is the first of many intelligent policies that are being built by the Egnyte Protect team, furthering our commitment to providing practical solutions for privacy, security and data compliance."

This GDPR policy is strengthened by Protect's ability to provide:

  • Unified control - Customers can enforce protection policies, like the GDPR policy, across the firm’s Connect, SharePoint, Windows file servers, and OneDrive repositories with a single interface.

  • Real-time notifications - Customers can set up alerts for any activity around sensitive content, ensuring they are aware of any abnormal activities as they occur, and allowing administrators to take the necessary actions to ensure the proper protection of their data.

  • File remediation - Administrators can take the necessary actions to move files, delete files, or revoke access to files right from within the Protect interface. When moving or deleting files, a placeholder is left there to notify end users of the new location of their file.

"With Egnyte Protect, BuzzFeed was able to meet requirements for data governance, without disrupting content creation and workflow, which was imperative to a digital media powerhouse where our content creators are fueling our immense growth," said Jason Reich, director, global security, BuzzFeed. "At the end of the day, Egnyte lets us be smarter about our content, which makes us smarter about our business."
