Privacy compliance and enterprise analytics company FileFacets has appointed Nuvias as its sole distributor in EMEA to drive international expansion and meet growing demand for its Enterprise ID data discovery products. These are fundamental to the discovery and management of personal and sensitive data, which is at the core of GDPR compliance.

FileFacets Enterprise ID offers a scalable software-as-a-service (SaaS) online platform for companies from SMEs up to large enterprises. It performs advanced data discovery and content search of structured and unstructured data within corporate networks, servers, content management systems, email, desktops and laptops.

The easy-to-deploy, hybrid-cloud solution identifies sensitive and personal information, removes redundant data and facilitates the secure transfer between data repositories. Artificial Intelligence capabilities expedite the classification of content and execution of business processes to handle personal data.

We are creating 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day, yet a recent Global Databerg Report suggested that 52% of all data stored by organisations globally is ‘dark’ data, meaning its content and value is unknown. Additionally, 33% of data is considered redundant.

“Organisations feel challenged as they contemplate GDPR, particularly with the hype surrounding it. Yet, at its core, GDPR is very simple: The discovery, protection, management and monitoring of personal data,” says Nuvias Group’s EVP Cyber Security, Ian Kilpatrick.

“The first place to start is to identify and manage relevant data and FileFacets delivers these capabilities for SMEs to large enterprise, rapidly and cost effectively. We already know from our channel partners that FileFacets is an ideal fit for our information security portfolio and provides a new point of entry for end-to-end GDPR, data discovery and security solutions.”

“With its presence in over 20 countries across EMEA and a proven track record in information security, this partnership with Nuvias will allow us to take our Enterprise ID solutions to major new markets. Data privacy and security have never been more important and businesses of all sizes are looking for practical, easy-to-use and affordable data search and discovery tools,” comments Chris Perram, CEO at FileFacets.

FileFacets is available through all EMEA regions but Nuvias will focus initially on the UK and northern mainland Europe including DACH2, the Nordics, Hungary and Poland.
