By automatically scanning data residing on network shares, storage systems, and endpoint computers inside and outside of the corporate network, DeviceLock Discovery locates documents with exposed sensitive content, provides options to protect them with remediation actions, and can initiate incident management procedures by sending real-time alerts to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems used in the organisation.
DeviceLock Discovery inspects textual data in more than 120 file formats and more than 40 types of nested archives. For identifying confidential content, DeviceLock Discovery uses structured data detection methods like keyword matching and regular expressions (RegExp). To ease the task of specifying content filters, the product ships with hundreds of pre-built industry-specific and country-specific keyword dictionaries, as well as RegExp templates for common sensitive information types, such as Social Security Numbers, credit cards, bank accounts, addresses, driving licenses, etc. In addition, customers can develop their own keyword dictionaries and templates, as well as modify pre-built ones for customized filtering needs.
The accuracy of content detection is increased by morphological analysis of keywords in English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Catalan Spanish.
