Monitor, Audit and Control Access to Sensitive File Data
Businesses deploy a variety of file security solutions to protect sensitive file data from insider threats and ensure it is kept in compliance with regulations. However, even after making significant investments in infrastructure and staff to protect unstructured data, organizations are still challenged to identify who owns their file data, which users have access rights, and who is actually using the data. These core capabilities are critical to delivering file security and managing file data efficiently day-to-day.
SecureSphere File Security products protect sensitive file data stored on file servers and network attached storage devices. SecureSphere provides full visibility into data ownership, usage and access rights and enables executives, auditors, security and IT managers to improve data security and meet compliance mandates.

User Rights Management for Files (URMF)
Identifies existing user access rights and facilitates a complete rights review cycle. SecureSphere file rights auditing ensures sensitive file data is accessible only by those with a business need to know.
