Endpoint Data Classification: Navigating Organisational Challenges with Getvisibility


In the rapidly evolving digital landscape, organizations are generating and managing an increasing volume of valuable data in diverse, unstructured formats such as emails, spreadsheets, documents, and media files. The rise of remote work and the proliferation of new applications have compounded the challenges of securing and classifying this data. Endpoint data classification has become a critical concern for organizations seeking to safeguard sensitive information, comply with regulations, and mitigate the risks associated with data breaches.

Organisational Challenges

Organisations face several key challenges in managing and securing their data:

Unstructured Data on End-User Devices: The creation and editing of unstructured data on end-user devices, including mobiles, laptops, and PCs, make it difficult for organizations to track and control data flow.

Data Handling Oversight: Organizations struggle to identify who is handling sensitive data and lack visibility into the specific data being processed on various devices.

Regulatory Compliance: Ensuring that data complies with regulations becomes complex, especially when dealing with diverse tools, applications, and remote work scenarios.

Risk of Data Breaches: Unsecured data poses a significant risk, leading to reputational damage, financial loss, and regulatory penalties in the event of a data breach.

The Current Solution Gap

Existing solutions fall short in providing comprehensive control and oversight:

User Autonomy: End users often have full control over data classification without centralized oversight, leading to inaccuracies and potential security gaps.

User Burden: End users find the classification process overwhelming, requiring extensive training and still resulting in potential misclassifications.
