Join us to learn how to understand your unstructured data risk in days and not years.

Identify potential risk hot spots

Valuable insights are shared through email, PDFs, word processor documents and images. This is considered unstructured data, and today it makes up around 80% of all enterprise information shared on the cloud.

IBM Watson® Knowledge Catalog InstaScan (formerly known as IBM  StoredIQ® InstaScan) is an intelligent file analysis tool that leverages automation and statistical sampling models to quickly identify risk hot spots in unstructured cloud data. The tool helps accelerate regulatory compliance and data governance as part of a DataOps practice by providing unique capabilities, such as:

  • Risk assessment and remediation recommendations
  • Automatic application of classification labels to files in Box
  • Audit-ready compliance checks
