“Doing a manual investigation would take years and years – that was not an option.”

– Simon, Senior Information Security Engineer

THE CHALLENGE

What was the client's need?

This global agriculture platform uses multiple environments, such as file shares, Sharepoint, Microsoft Exchange, and, most importantly, Salesforce to store and process data. Performing a manual PII scan was not a viable option due to the sheer volume of the data.

PII Tools offered the perfect solution for an automated scan of their whole environment. In addition, automated scheduled scans ensured no omissions going forward, for newly created data.
