Courion Corporation has released Compliance Manager for File Shares, the company's solution designed to ensure that user access to file shares is aligned with corporate security policies and industry regulations. The solution enables organizations to control user access to and protect sensitive information in unstructured data repositories such as file shares, including Excel spreadsheets, presentations, PDF files, and audio, video, and CAD files.

Courion's Compliance Manager automates governance, compliance, and remediation processes in file share environments, allowing IT administrators and business managers to protect sensitive information in file shares from unauthorized access. The solution will allow administrators and business managers to:

  • Prioritize focus areas in hours or days (instead of weeks or months) by using RiskAppraiser technology to identify the locations of file shares that present the highest degree of risk.

  • Identify the business owners of riskiest data and ensure they are controlling access without impeding business functions.

  • Determine which other users have access to the data and to certify appropriate user access, remediate inappropriate user access, and ensure access aligns with corporate security policies and industry standards.
