• Ground Labs launches new software to target data theft

        • Ground Labs, a company specialising in sensitive data security, has just launched new software called Enterprise Recon 2, a solution aiming to battle against data theft. The platform can be deployed within hours to hunt down more than 100 types of personal information.  

          With data breaches, which can involve the theft of millions of passwords, names or other pieces of data, becoming increasingly common, the software can search through all levels of a complex IT infrastructure, seeking out and removing items of personal data. The software can recognise more than 100 types of sensitive information from passport numbers to card numbers and even medical records.

          John Cassidy, VP EMEA, Ground Labs said, “in the past, companies have relied on non-specific qualitative data sources which were often ignored.  What we’ve moved towards is highly specific information on what type of data is being held and precisely where it can be found.”

          Partially deleted files or those hidden in automatic backups known as ‘shadow copies’ also pose a significant risk. In the past six months, Ground Labs has identified files such as birth dates and card numbers that were ‘thought to be deleted’ in 92% of interactions with UK companies.

          New Global Data Protection Regulations, which come into force in May 2018, will have a dramatic impact on the data security landscape.  The new data compliance rules will incur penalties for any organisation found to be in breach of these rules which includes the inappropriate storage of information.

          John added, “our platform enables users to search from one end of an organisation to the other – to search for any personal data.  The system is totally secure and runs securely behind a firewall so there is no ‘treasure map’ for would-be data thieves.”
