Dark Data Remediation

Find data that is no longer used or is stored in an uncontrolled manner.

Consolidate and remediate your dark data

Dark data is part of every enterprise's information asset universe, but is either under-used or not used at all. At the very least, this presents costs in storage and security that weigh down your systems. At worst, this data can add unnecessary risk to your organization while adding little additional value. The Data X-Ray helps you find this data and remediate it across petabyte-scale data landscapes.

Unstructured data metadata analysis

Ingest metadata tag files at rates of over 100,000,000 files/day. With pure metadata extraction, you can move stale data that has been in your storage far too long.

Unstructured data content analysis

Whether an email, a PDF, a powerpoint, or any one of 1000s of other formats, you can the Data X-Ray algorithms to identify files based on your data governance strategies and taxonomies.

Structured data

Databases are scanned on a column level at speeds that humans simply cannot match. Once dark data is identified, you can tag those tables and columns for migration or further consideration with your teams.

Data governance tooling

The Data X-Ray has native integrations with tools like Collibra to trigger workflows based on your specific governance frameworks.

Customizable ML classification

Customize our base ML algorithms with definitions specific to your data governance taxonomies. You can add new ML classes or employ more traditional methods like regular expressions and dictionaries to get the highest accuracy possible.

How to get started

Understand your options from quick and simple no-integration cloud to fully self-managed on premise petabyte-scale deployments.
