Sensitive Data Discovery

Storage of unencrypted Personally Identifiable Information (PII) creates liability to fines, penalties and fees associated with the Payment Card Industry (PCI), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as well as possible data compromise. SecurityMetrics PIIscan is PII scanning software that searches computer systems, hard drives, and attached storage devices for unencrypted data to help you discover where and why sensitive data is leaking from your network.

Find Unencrypted PII

SecurityMetrics PIIscan is data discovery software that allows organizations to simply and efficiently discover unencrypted USA Social Security Numbers (SSN), UK National Insurance Numbers (NINO), Canada Social Insurance Numbers (SIN), Australian Tax File Numbers (TFN), Australian Business Numbers (ABN), and payment card data (including primary account numbers (PAN) and magnetic stripe track data). It is important to proactively find and then delete or encrypt this sensitive data before criminals can steal it.
