Inventory, Risk Assessment & Enterprise Data Lineage
Organizations today are saddled with millions if not billions of files on their file servers that users have accumulated over the years. It is a nearly impossible task for the users to manually review each and every file and disposition them by deciding which ones should be deleted, retained (and for how long) or moved. As a result these files continue to consume valuable I.T. infrastructure, effort and costs in storage, virus protection, backups and performance.
The EUC Insight Discovery File Disposition service performs an automated dispositioning of the files based on a rule-based engine that your firm can define. First, the files can be scanned at regular intervals with a defined pace, scale and scope. Secondly, rules/policies can be defined for categorization and disposition based on age, size, owner and content. As the files are scanned, they are automatically categorized and then dispositioned based on the defined rules and policies. A vast majority of files can be automatically dispositioned based on this method. For those that cannot, file owners are automatically alerted to provide their input on the file dispositioning of the file.
