Spirion, formerly Identity Finder
What is Spirion
Spirion is the leading provider of enterprise data management software to help businesses reduce their sensitive data footprint and proactively minimize the risks, costs and reputation damage of successful cyber attacks. Spirion helps organizations avoid costly data breaches by discovering, classifying, monitoring and protecting personal information, medical records, credit card numbers, and intellectual property stored across the enterprise, within e-mail, and in the cloud
On April 5th, 2019, Engineering Technical Services will upgrade installations of Identity Finder with the company’s enhanced offering, “Spirion.” This installation will take place silently and will not cause workstation disruptions. The updated software promises major performance improvements, particularly with cloud storage options like OneDrive and Dropbox.
This tool is configured to scan your system for files that contain SSN and Credit Card numbers, and then lets you decide what to do with those files. It does not report back on what it finds and is mainly a tool to empower you to decide better where to store such personal information.
