Daunting Data

Data is the veins of today’s corporations. According to the 2012 International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates, the amount of information created and replicated exceeded 2.8 zettabytes or trillions of gigabytes. The IDC expects this to grow to more than 40 zettabytes by 2020.  The IDC study also estimates more than 90% of the data created between now and 2020 will be “unstructured” data.

What is “unstructured data”? It is information that is not organized in a pre-defined manner. Unstructured data is often hard to organize and manipulate, or it was, until now.

Varonis provides a way to manage, map, analyze, and migrate unstructured data. More specifically, its innovative software addresses the spreadsheets, word processing documents, presentations, images, videos, emails, and other files created by your employees--the “human-generated” data.  

This unstructured data usually contains your company’s most critical information such as strategic initiatives, financial information, product plans, intellectual property, and other sensitive information.
