Data Recon offers a unique feature enabling you to build custom definitions of sensitive data. You can also build definitions to find specific combinations of sensitive and personal data.
When you need to perform sensitive data discovery across millions of files and terabytes of data, accuracy is critical. Find out why Data Recon is unbeatable on any accuracy measurement.
Data Recon is preconfigured to accurately identify sensitive data using its purpose-built discovery algorithm. It has been designed to analyse each possible finding hundreds of times at lightning speed to save you time while identifying genuine security risks.
If you've tried an alternative, open-source product, you already know that searches can yield a high number of false positives. Data Recon uses a built-in false positive elimination algorithm that scrutinises every finding and delivers a filtered set of results with minimal false positives.
Data Recon attempts to inspect every object, regardless of the file name or type. To reduce false positives, many alternative solutions skip up to 80% of unrecognised files. In contrast, Data Recon ensures that each object is inspected for the possibility of stored sensitive data.
How many file formats is your business storing? Data Recon identifies and reads the contents of hundreds of file formats, including MS Office documents, text files, compressed files, databases, emails, images and audio files. Furthermore, Data Recon is capable of inspecting all other files, including those that are not natively understood, to provide the most thorough scan available in the data discovery market.
Sensitive data can infiltrate every part of your network, including development and test environments. Data Recon lets you define the difference between test data and live data so that your team can focus on the real problems while ignoring non-sensitive internal test data sets.
Do you need to completely exclude certain locations or number ranges within your company? With Data Recon, you can enhance the accuracy of your search even further by applying filters to handle certain data locations differently. Features permit re-categorising numbers and including or excluding data by range, location, prefix and suffix. Data Recon also includes a post-processing LUA script feature for power users.

Search all local storage on a desktop, laptop, workstation or server, including fixed drives, removable drives and any accessible location where data can be stored.
Do your employees discard sensitive data simply by deleting it? If so, you inadvertently may be storing sensitive data that can be recovered easily by commonly available tools. Data Recon solves this problem by searching all the free space on a local system for deleted files and identifying any remaining sensitive data.
Windows automatically backs up file changes to a hidden area of your computer called a shadow volume. Most people aren't aware that large volumes of sensitive data may be hiding there.
Data Recon helps you address this potential security risk by searching all shadow volumes for sensitive data.
Given the increasing use of memory scraping malware, your company needs the ability to audit the memory usage of applications for protection against data breaches. Data Recon simplifies this process by enabling auditing of memory for any sensitive data across any supported end-point.
Is your business storing data on centralised SAN or NAS devices?
With Data Recon, it isn’t a problem. Data Recon enables remote scanning of network drives with advanced controls to reduce network impact by limiting the speed of data transfer.
Are you running mission-critical enterprise databases?
Data Recon enables live searching of the most popular enterprise database servers, including Oracle, DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, SAP Sybase, MySQL and PostgreSQL.

The Cloud is everywhere. Does that mean your customers’ personal information is stored everywhere too?
Cloud data storage is proliferating, so it must be searched for sensitive data. Data Recon remotely searches popular Cloud platforms, including Amazon AWS and Google Apps (Calendar, Drive, Mail, and Tasks).
Strong functionality is of little use without clear, readable results. Data Recon’s reporting choices provide maximum visibility of weaknesses in your data security.
Immediately see your total risk position, including separate identification of sensitive data that is considered prohibited for storage.
Data Recon displays a complete breakdown by target type, showing you the highest-risk areas of all the searched targets, so you know precisely where each set of findings is located.
If Data Recon finds multiple types of sensitive data, the report will include a breakdown.
View a detailed breakdown of every finding on each end-point, including every file, database, and email containing sensitive data, along with a complete count of data types.
If Data Recon finds emails containing sensitive data; the report will identify which emails were detected including the sender, recipient(s), subject and timestamp. The report will also list attachments containing sensitive data, if applicable.
Data Recon details the contents of any recognised databases, displaying the table names and, when possible, the column names of locations where sensitive data was found.
Data Recon displays reports on-screen, via email and as an offline results database so you can review the results on a separate system. Available report formats include HTML, text, CSV and PDF.
What happens after you have discovered findings? Data Recon’s advanced remediation capabilities help you clean up and remove any data security risks.
If you don't need to retain any of the data, Data Recon’s Secure Delete feature permanently erases any trace of a file stored on disk, rendering it completely unrecoverable by undelete and forensic tools.
If you want to keep the data, but store it more securely, Secure Quarantine lets you move accessible files to a secure location while permanently erasing it from the location where it was found.
If Data Recon finds sensitive PAN data, the Cardholder Data Masking feature enables masking of each PAN within text based log files, configuration files and other simple files types stored on disk. For example, 1234000000005678 becomes 123400xxxxxx5678, thus rendering the data PCI compliant.
Data Recon is packed with many more features to support your company’s data security compliance efforts.
When Data Recon finds sensitive data, it displays the exact location. Data Recon displays the contents of a file and highlights exactly where the data was discovered. This simplifies the verification of results.
As you review each finding, you can tag it with an appropriate classification marking. Then you can enhance the Data Recon report by displaying a breakdown by classification markings.
Do you want to generate results on one host and view the reports from another? You can do this with Data Recon’s Results Database, which uses AES 128-bit encryption to ensure that your result data remains secure.
With Data Recon, you can suspend a search during a particular time window, perhaps to create a backup or perform maintenance. Data Recon has an automatic Suspend Search feature that can be used to halt a Data Recon search during specific times when high-load tasks are running.
Do you want to limit who can run Data Recon within your organisation? Data Recon offers online and offline authentication options. In online mode, Data Recon access can be restricted to require a username and password, or you can opt for simplified authentication using a scan activation token. Alternatively, an offline license can be used for systems operating in a locked-down network DMZ.
Data Recon makes it simple to specify multiple locations and formats when saving search results for multiple users.
