Stickman Ground Labs product

Find your card holder data in multiple locations

Corporations have data stored in so many locations that it is impossible to manually look for information. With the data security tool from Ground Labs, it makes the process easy and simple for organisations to search for data that is stored in a non-secure manner and take corrective actions to remediate it and secure the data.

Ajay Unni, CEO Stickman Consulting

Find credit card data across many file formats

Card Recon is very effective at finding credit card numbers. Unlike many of the freeware products, Card Recon will report credit card numbers stored in a number of different formats including Excel spreadsheets, documents, emails, zip files, even recursive zip files.

Global Compliance

Organisations today need to be aware of what data they handle, where they store it and what controls they have to protect it. Ground Labs develops products that fit this requirement. The tools are easy to use yet provide incredibly valuable information that can be acted on for further analysis or remedial efforts. The applications support most popular operating systems, databases and also a number of online applications.
