Where Sensitive Data Resides

Personal data is everywhere: on-premises and in the cloud, from file servers and databases to data warehouses and data lakes, to individual desktops and endpoints. Data is also shared among employees and partners, which means the same personal information may be stored in multiple repositories. Finding personal and sensitive data quickly, accurately, and completely is often more difficult than it appears.

PK Discovery provides automated discovery for improved data protection

Integrated Discovery for Improved Protection

Companies today gather so much data that it is virtually impossible to understand what sensitive data is in their possession without the help of an automated discovery solution. PKWARE and Dataguise have joined together to offer:

  1. Extensive Platform Support – Supported discovery for the most widely used data repositories.
  2. On-Demand Discovery – Run discovery scans continuously or scheduled at specific dates and times for different processes.
  3. Execute Retention Policies – Create rules to classify, archive, delete, or move data based on data type, last accessed, age, and more.
  4. Highly Scalable – Discover on high volumes and/or high velocities of data.
  5. Machine Learning – Find information that may be semantically ambiguous using context and machine learning.
  6. Uncover Hidden Data – Ensure sensitive data is continually identified as more data is amassed.
  7. Risky Combinations – Locate identifiers, pseudo-identifiers, and quasi-identifiers.
  8. Context of Error – Minimize false-positives and eliminate false-negatives.
  9. Sensitive Types – Scan for pre-defined or unique sensitive types, and collect unique counts of impacted identifiers for breach reporting

Vendor Information


With more than 30 years in data security, PKWARE is one of the most trusted names in the industry. We invented the ZIP file, the world’s most widely-used archive format, and have continued to innovate through the years, developing new technologies and new strategies for a constantly-changing world.

PKWARE’s Data Security Platform removes the guesswork and legwork for customers by eliminating data security gaps, automating the management and protection of sensitive information, and meeting data compliance goals—all with the ability to tailor the solutions to the unique needs of their industry.

Range and Applicability

We offer the broadest support in the market. Our data discovery capabilities cover: Relation Databases (RDBMS), Structured Data, Data Warehouses, Big Data Hadoop Platforms, NoSQL Databases, Cloud Object Stores, Inflight Data Transfers, Endpoint and File Servers.


Organizations need security solutions that apply data protection policies in real-time, across the entire enterprise, without user intervention. Supported by PKWARE’s unmatched powerful automation capabilities, IT personnel and executives can focus more on their business needs and strategy, and less on monitoring the security of their technology.  PKWARE solutions focus on what needs to be protected, and then apply the right forms of protection, regardless of where the data lives.

Rule-Based Remediation

Data security is not a one-size-fits-all proposition. Within a single organization, there can be dozens of security policies, hundreds of data types, and thousands of use cases. Some data might require encryption, while other data may need to be masked, redacted, deleted, or quarantined.

With PKWARE, your policies can be as general or specific as necessary in order to meet your goals. Administrators can define specific actions (or sequences of actions) to be applied based on file contents, file types, storage locations, user profiles, and other criteria.

Persistent Protection

Data rarely stays in one place. Sensitive information is constantly being duplicated and shared, often in locations outside the organization’s control. Solutions that protect data only on certain devices or in certain situations can create security gaps and compliance risks. PKWARE provides remediation options (including persistent encryption) that permanently protect data against inappropriate use, even when the data travels beyond the company network.

Integration and Scalability

Enterprise security ecosystems are complex and constantly evolving. PKWARE technology is built to fit into your existing environment and to grow and change along with you. Our solutions work on every enterprise operating system and integrate with DLP systems, productivity software, reporting tools, and other elements of your IT infrastructure. In addition, our scalable software is simple to use on a broad range of data types and repositories, enabling visibility and control even in the fastest-moving, most complex IT environments.

Centralized Control

Centralized management is essential to ensure that data is protected according to the organization’s security policies while remaining available for appropriate use. PKWARE’s management console gives organizations complete control over their sensitive data for the entire lifecycle of the data, wherever it lives. Access to protected data can be granted or revoked at any time, and all activity is logged for auditing and reporting.
