UHY ADVISORS announces alliance with AI-powered MinerEye

NEW YORK, September 12, 2018 –UHY Advisors NY, Inc. (“UHY”), today announced that the firm has formed an alliance with MinerEye, which will bolster UHY’s industry-leading Risk Advisory Group.

MinerEye’s A.I. powered DataTrackerTM enables business and government organizations to continuously identify, organize, track and protect vast information assets including undermanaged, unstructured and dark data, for safe and compliant cloud migration.

“Companies cannot protect, manage or utilize information they can’t find,” said MinerEye CEO and Co-Founder Yaniv Avidan. “We believe DataTracker will be an essential solution for UHY clients seeking to continuously automate data classification to reduce redundant data risk as well as complying with GDPR and other privacy regulations.”

MinerEye DataTracker helps companies consolidate internal file server data into OneDrive as part of Office 365 and Azure adoption. These organizations have faced major challenges in completing hybrid-cloud initiatives. MinerEye’s customers have successfully overcome these challenges by swiftly identifying, classifying and tracking the on-premise data before, during and after it moves to the cloud.

As part of the alliance, UHY will oversee the professional services aspect of the offering, which includes advising clients regarding the implementation of the technology, as well as acting as the point of contact for clients after installation of the product.

“MinerEye leverages artificial intelligence to identify and classify data to ensure it is safe and compliant,” said Warren Zafrin, the leader of the Risk Advisory Services practice at UHY. “This alliance will add to the cybersecurity services we provide clients and ensure that they are well-positioned to safeguard their most critical asset, their data.”

“MinerEye’s state-of-the-art comprehensive cybersecurity services are an exciting addition to our client offerings,” said Michael Mahoney, CEO of UHY Advisors NY, Inc. “This partnership adds to our suite of strategic alliances and will be an immediate benefit for clients as we advise them on how to implement both strategic and logistical cyber defenses.”
