Leadership & Vision

Our vision for unstructured data

As data becomes the new end point, MinerEye will provide the critical layer that orchestrates information governance wherever data resides.

MinerEye’s founders understood that an effective organization or success business begins with knowing what assets lie in their networks. Yet, the huge volume of unstructured, dark data remains a black hole that must be overcome for organizations to manage its data and achieve its business objectives.

MinerEye focuses on what personal information (PI), business sensitive information, and customer data is contained, where the data resides, who has access to it, and how quick, easy access can be available for every organization. MinerEye set out to provide technology for organizations to have answers to these questions quickly and for insightful analysis to set data policies, achieve precise classification, automate effective file protection and benefit from continual data monitoring.

MinerEye is actualizing its vision by making actionable insights on unstructured data for a simple, inexpensive management process for data protection, data privacy, and compliance to regulations.
