Assuring compliance with corporate governance policies and litigation readiness is a critical mandate for most organizations. To help reduce risk and ensure compliance, Commvault delivers a holistic and automated approach to retaining and accessing the right information across the enterprise and deleting it defensibly. See how Commvault tackles some of today’s biggest security and risk challenges:


According to the Ponemon Institute, the average cost for each lost or stolen record containing sensitive and confidential information has increased 23% since 2013. Security breaches, put in the spotlight by recent headlines, are the result of far too many companies putting too much critical data in harm’s way. What were once isolated and occasional requests on IT to recover or discover data now need to be a fully integrated part of an overall plan to support the business and derive the most value from information. With data located in multiple repositories, organizations today struggle to find information when they need it. Commvault’s hardware-agnostic, secure, virtual repository where all backup and archive data is maintained, removes those barriers. With powerful and scalable content indexing, millions of items within the ContentStore can be searched in seconds to produce relevant, accurate search results. Collected data can be reviewed and held immediately to determine risk and exposure.


The rapidly increasing volume and complexity of data creates a challenge for organizations as they try to efficiently discover information needed to address corporate litigation, internal investigations, public information and audit requests. One common pitfall organizations fall into is not capturing a comprehensive data set to search. Data that resides on laptops, desktops, mobile devices and in file sync and share services is often overlooked, ignored or difficult to capture. Commvault Endpoint Data Protection, a part of the Commvault software platform, is a complete enterprise-class solution for rapid, efficient and transparent endpoint data protection. It brings critical data from endpoints and file sync and share services into the ContentStore, where all backup and archive data is maintained, and enables enterprise-wide search and efficient discovery of information from a single console and virtual repository.


How to best retain, access, discover and ultimately delete content in compliance with evolving regulations is a top of mind business concern. At the same time, security and compliance policies for many organizations, while often well founded, are delegated to employees to perform manually instead of automated enforcement through technology. With one product, Commvault offers truly integrated collection, legal holds, search and disposition from a broad collection of data sources, streamlining the eDiscovery process across data silos and making it more defensible against point solutions. Using Case Manager, you can manage legal hold and review capabilities by case across email and devices.


Many organizations hoard unstructured data for decades. Growing file shares, email, desktops/laptops, even legacy backup tapes all contain many copies of aged data that no longer has business value. According to a survey at the Compliance, Governance and Oversight Counsel, up to 69% of data has no value to the enterprise (Benchmark Survey on Information Governance in the Global 1000). Not only is this content taking up valuable and expensive space, but it can also become a liability if not properly managed. Commvault software can greatly reduce the cost, complexity and risk of storing business or compliance data through the use of content-based retention policies. These user-defined policies can be based on criteria such as file name, type, user/group, keyword, Exchange classifications, tagging and more. Unlike legacy methods that "keep everything," content-based retention enables enterprises to keep only data that is important to the business. This can reduce retention costs up to 70%, and streamline discovery to improve insight and accelerate smart decision making.
