Every campus has data "at rest"—data stored and unused for the moment. Sometimes it's simply waiting for periodic use. Other times it may just be forgotten and not used at all.
In any case, data at rest becomes a high risk when it includes Personally Identifiable Information (PII), like credit card and Social Security numbers, stored in unexpected or unprotected places. Unprotected PII can compromise more than years of compliance work. Using patent pending Data Detector Technology™ , TouchNet® Seek-N-Secure® scans network systems and machines for PII. Ongoing scans and multiple remediation options ensure "data at rest" doesn't mean "campus at risk."
The rash of recent security breach headlines underscores the vulnerability of colleges and universities. Seek-N-Secure gives a campus powerful, sensitive data-sniffing software to find and fix problems before they become headlines.
