The explosion of data is a huge problem for organizations. Now with GDPR-like regulations coming into place, company data is now also a massive compliance risk. DocAuthority enables you to turn these compliance requirements into business opportunities and use them to dramatically improve all aspects of unstructured data usage, management and governance. DocAuthority’s revolutionary and patented AI engine quickly and efficiently identifies and creates an inventory of all of your business data with the precision of 99.99%. With ease, you can now accurately identify both data’s risk and its value and automate its ongoing classification, protection and retention while improving accessibility and quality.
The Data Governance Platform built for both technical teams and business users alike.
Automatically catalogue unstructured files and documents to define the data you have, what it contains, where it resides and who has access to it, allowing you to concentrate on your day job.
Make DocAuthority central to your Data Governance Program.
DocAuthority is simple and straightforward to use, allowing business users clear line of sight to any regulated or commercially sensitive data.
Data governance helps the enterprise understand how data is linked to business processes and outcomes, enabling a data strategy and prioritising data management activities based on business goals such as increasing revenue, decreasing cost, and minimizing risk.
Data governance is essential to cyber security. In order to protect against threats, the enterprise needs to know what data to protect and how best to protect it. Data governance allows an enterprise to identify its high value, high-risk datasets and allocate relevant resources to protect the data.
Take a data-centric approach to Governance Risk and Compliance
DocAuthority helps organisations to create a consistent and rigorous approach to managing unstructured data across the business enterprise. It provides strategy and structure, ensuring that data is managed as an asset and transformed into meaningful information.

Article 30 data inventory
DocAuthority can simplify the creation of an GDPR Article 30 compliant data inventory for your unstructured data.
Thousands of documents will be categorized by their function. In practice this means that DocAuthority will find and categorize all your invoices, purchase orders, performance reviews, status reports or in fact, typically any document that is the output of a process.
Discovering the business process owner and establishing the purpose and legal basis of any processing is then straight-forward.
Classifying business data is a foundation element of information risk management and information security as well as also contributing significantly to regulatory compliance.
DocAuthority can reduce the costs of classifying business data while at the same time addressing several shortcomings of traditional document classification solutions.

Data Loss Reduction
Ensuring that groups and individuals do not have data to which they have no requirement is a major step in ensuring that data loss risks are minimised. However, DocAuthority will also assist in identifying accounts with excessive privileges and sensitive data that is not adequately safeguarded.
If you want to take that a step further and use DocAuthority to bolster your existing DLP solution, that’s possible too.
Migrating to Office365 or AWS? Do you want to ensure you don’t transfer redundant data or personal data you no longer have a lawful basis to store?
Use DocAuthority to automatically index and catalogue your data before you migrate. You can almost certainly delete at least 30% of your data and this might be decisive in assuring your investment case.
DocAuthority can significantly reduce these challenges by automatically: identifying folders which have high volumes of sensitive data (and their owners), identifying business processes which are publishing sensitive information as well as identifying the outputs from those business processes wherever it is and identifying accounts which appear to have excessive privileges.

Reduce resource overheads
Whichever workload you face (records retention, DSARs, finding regulated data, migrating to or from a data storage platform), you will significantly reduce the resource costs involved.
The most obvious reason for this is that DocAuthority sifts your data at lightning speed and groups it efficiently. This means you can achieve the same outcome for thousands of documents simultaneously as you can for one document.
Tasks which are complex and incredibly resource intensive are easy with DocAuthority.
You’ll have less data. You’ll know where your sensitive data is and who has access to it. You’ll be able to see who has access to that data with unparalleled accuracy. And, if the information isn’t adequately safeguarded, the necessary corrective action is quick and simple to take.

Regulated data discovery
While DocAuthority supports regular expressions and rich search strings, we believe there’s a more accurate and effective way to discover regulated data in your business. One that is highly accurate and completely language agnostic.
We don’t believe that you should only discover some of your data or just the data which may present a risk. We don’t believe in an approach that relies on discovering thousands of exceptions and violations and challenging business stakeholders to take the costly and labor intensive corrective action.
We believe in tying regulated data to the processes, owners and business units that create and publish it. We do all of this and more and if you want to see how, get in touch with the team.
