information Governance

MinerEye introduces AI-powered DataTracker to automate data protection, tracking and protection.

RSA 2018, SAN FRANCISCOApril 12 ─ MinerEye is launching a new, AI-powered governance and data protection solution, MinerEye DataTrackerTM, that for the first time will enable companies to continuously identify, organize, track and protect vast information assets ─ including undermanaged, unstructured and dark data ─ for safe and compliant cloud migration.

MinerEye will be presenting its new DataTracker solution at the Security Shark Tank® During RSA 2018 Conference in San Francisco.

“Companies cannot protect, manage or utilize the information they can’t find,” said MinerEye CEO and Co-Founder Yaniv Avidan. “Using our Interpretive AITM, MinerEye fuses computer vision and machine learning to track information at the byte and pixel level, which no other solution has achieved.”

Most data tracking and classification technologies categorize data based on descriptive elements such as file size, type, name, and location. MinerEye dives deeply into the basic data form to its essence, uncover and categorize data groups that have not been pre-specified. Using AI, and a small number of exemplar files as a training set, MinerEye learns, detects, and categorizes unspecified types of information. For example, it can detect and group sensitive contracts, customer complaints, log files, corporate M&A documents, or legacy employee information.

“DataTracker is easily installed and maintained with no local agent, an insignificant network and CPU footprint − a single virtual machine manages 120 terabytes throughout its lifecycle − and fast deployment that delivers exponential ROI for our customers,” says Avidan.

MinerEye enables enterprises to immediately save millions in data storage costs, fast-track cloud migration, continuously protects against security breaches, and ensure regulatory compliance, especially GDPR, which takes effect May 25, 2018.

MinerEye DataTracker helps companies consolidate internal file server data into cloud repositories such as OneDrive as part of Office 365 and Azure adoption. While many organizations, as well as Microsoft, have faced major challenges completing hybrid-cloud initiatives, MinerEye customers have successfully overcome these challenges by swiftly identifying, classifying, tracking and downsizing on-premise data before and after it moves to the cloud. MinerEye integrates with Azure Information Protection to automate the propagation of labeling and protection to undermanaged and unstructured data.

“With the emergence of GDPR and other compliance measures, organizations need full control and awareness of their data at all times in order to meet regulatory requirements,” said Malcolm Harkins, chief security and trust officer of Cylance. “MinerEye’s application of artificial intelligence and machine learning brings a fresh vision and approach to the complex fields of data governance and data protection, providing organizations with a scalable and comprehensive solution for tracking and protecting sensitive data.”

“As data becomes the new endpoint, MinerEye will become the fundamental layer that automates information governance wherever it resides by identifying data in all its states using the power of AI,” Avidan says.

MinerEye DataTracker Features:

Fast Track Cloud Migration – MinerEye classifies and mediates the movement of current and legacy data, and eliminates redundancies while continually monitoring both cloud and on-premise repositories.

Automated Data Protection – MinerEye tailors automated classification capabilities to current data security controls, ensuring a consistent and comprehensive classification of all essential data. MinerEye DataTracker can easily detect and understand unusual data behavior indicating activities that could present risk: suspicious or irregular movement, deletion, or modification of specific data.

Data Segregation – MinerEye’s AI continuously maps and issues alerts on data residency issues and data sharing violations that are prevalent among large dataset carriers.

Data Minimization – MinerEye helps companies eliminate excess, obsolete and redundant data that has accumulated over time and takes up valuable data storage. Reducing storage costs results in millions of dollars in savings. MinerEye also limits personal data collection, storage, and usage to only relevant locations, keeping volume and management costs lower and safer.

Easy Installation and Maintenance with No Footprint – DataTracker technology is encapsulated in an Open Virtual Machine that scans data repositories remotely using read permissions only. The product is easy to install and maintain and leaves zero footprints on network and storage. A single machine supports up to 120 terabytes of data throughout its lifecycle, which can be distributed and configured to match the company’s network storage and security systems architecture and data flows.

About MinerEye
Powered by Interpretive AITM, MinerEye technology sees and continually tracks data according to form, file and information content type wherever it resides. With MinerEye’s unique approach, companies can now discover, organize and track vast information assets by scanning enterprise data repositories at the byte and pixel level. Sensitive data is mapped, tagged and secured according to data protection and compliance regulations including GDPR, HIPPA, PCI-DSS, SOC2, and EU-U.S. Privacy Shield. Employing machine learning and computer vision, MinerEye’s flagship product, DataTracker™, is helping companies significantly reduce data storage, fast-track and monitor cloud migration activities, protect previously undetected, unclassified and undermanaged data against security breaches, and continuously audit their information to maintain regulatory compliance
