The challenge – Managing massive amounts of growing sensitive data across the business

The bank is responsible for managing large amounts of sensitive personal information in accordance with FCA, PRA and GDPR regulations. They need to protect customer data, provide proof that data is being managed correctly for audits, ensure that data is kept in accordance with regulations to avoid fines and understand where their data resides so that they can reduce risk from human error and cyber-attack.

Managing all their sensitive data was a mammoth task – they used a large team to people to manually scan their digital estate to discover the sensitive data that was stored across the whole UK business. While this process was a massive drain on resources and budgets, it was very necessary.

Our customer realised that as the number of business applications grew, automating the data discovery process was becoming crucial to ensure compliance and reduce security risks as well as costs.

The bank selected SecurEnvoy Data Discovery to scan over 2 terabytes of data (an amount that is continually increasing) and report on all the sensitive data that is being stored in their on-premise and cloud solutions.

Without adopting this change to automated data discovery, they would have needed to add more resources and increased budgets, while always being at risk of human error and key sensitive data being missed.

Automating the data discovery process for sensitive data in Atlassian Confluence, Jira, Bitbucket and more

Like many other financial services businesses, the bank are using the Atlassian suite of solutions (Jira, Confluence and Bitbucket).

Our customer searched for a solution to automate the data discovery process but struggled to identify a data discovery solution that was able to scan Atlassian products that were deployed on-premise and in the cloud. After a comprehensive review of the data discovery market, testing many solutions, they identified SecurEnvoy Data Discovery as the right tool to move forward with.

Sensitive data discovery

SecurEnvoy Data Discovery automates the data discovery process and quickly scans endpoints (PC, MAC, Linux), servers, and day-to-day business management solutions such as Office 365, Google Workspace, Alfresco, and Atlassian Jira, Confluence and Bitbucket. The SecurEnvoy solution reports on the type of sensitive data being stored and where it is held, alerting on any data that is out of line with compliance regulations.
