The way workforces collaborate, share and manage information has forever shifted. Hybrid work has exacerbated content sprawl, while uncontrolled collaboration platforms, evolving global regulations, complex privacy requirements and growing threats create security and regulatory compliance risks.

Information governance solutions offer intelligent, policy-driven automation and integration that helps organizations mitigate risks and protect information to stay compliant, secure and productive while powering modern work.

How smarter information governance impacts business

  • Flexible and federated compliance

    Rapidly changing regulations mean businesses must constantly adapt to stay compliant. Disconnected systems lead to uncontrolled silos that hinder collaboration and productivity. Consolidate key systems to streamline information governance.

  • Legacy content remediation

    Large volumes of legacy content, such as historical file shares, can contain risky and obsolete files. Manual review to determine what to preserve and secure is difficult and time-consuming. Automate records retention to mitigate risk.

  • Policy-driven content security

    Organizations need to make content accessible to staff. Yet, content is a valuable resource and making it more accessible to staff can lead to improper information sharing. Implement policy-driven, role-based access to reduce exposure.

  • Defensible holds and discovery

    Legal actions demand rapid responses to legal holds and discovery. Without the ability to audit access and disposition of content, defensibility is compromised. Leverage technology-assisted content review.
