Dark Data Assessment

Identify personal data, locate potential ransomware and optimize storage with Veritas Dark Data Assessment

The EMEA Databerg estimates that 54% of all data in organizations is dark – data with an undetermined business value. This unknown in the data landscape costs organizations millions every year. Additionally, 32% of organizational data is Redundant, Obsolete or  Trivial  (ROT)  and  only  14%  is  catalogued  as  business  critical.  These  massive  repositories  of  no  or  low-value  data  are  a  direct  result  of data hoarding strategies implemented by organizations that were unprepared to deal with the explosive growth of data in the digital age. Consequently, organizations are not only wasting millions on storage costs which could potentially be avoided, they are also being exposed to security and regulatory risk. So  how  can  you  get  started  to  understand  your  dark  data?  Veritas  offers  a  simple  and  rapid  assessment  to  help  identify  where  your  organization can take steps to save on storage and locate risk that may be hiding where you least expect it.
