Index Engines Announces Program to Jumpstart Readiness for the GDPR

New Three-Month Program Helps Organizations Support Unstructured Data Classification in Support of Compliance with Governance and Privacy Initiatives.

HOLMDEL, NJ – Information management software company Index Engines announced the Governance Readiness Starter Bundle Wednesday, a rapidly deployable 3-month software and services solution that empowers clients to get started in classifying unstructured user data in support of industry regulations and compliance requirements, including the upcoming GDPR.

The Governance Readiness Starter Bundle includes metadata classification of unstructured files where data is organized based on value, including the tagging of redundant obsolete and trivial (ROT) content that no longer has business value. Following this three-month jumpstart, additional software and services can be deployed to provide more comprehensive solutions, including data migration and minimization as well as full-content search and archiving.

“This bundle is designed to help organizations understand their data assets, so they can clean and classify them to prepare for the GDPR and other governance initiatives,” Index Engines Vice President Jim McGann said. “With the GDPR just months away and many organizations unsure of where to start, this program is that starting point and can easily be expanded to satisfy the challenges faced with respect to unstructured data management.”

Index Engines’ engineers remotely manage the project and work with the organization throughout the 90-day process.

This 3-month term license provides all the software and services you need to get started and manage a 50TB ($18,150), 100TB ($27,200) or 250TB ($49,300) project within the data center. Following this 3-month term clients can transition to additional capacity and licensing terms.

This program is divided into six easy-to-implement steps:

  • Project Prep/Kickoff: Plan engagement with customer project team
  • Install/Training: Install, validate and train on Index Engines software
  • Indexing Setup: Configure indexing jobs and schedules
  • Index Monitoring: Monitor and tune Index Engines processing jobs
  • Report/Consultation: Develop data classification reports and review with client
  • Project Wrap-up: Review project and develop a plan for next steps

“When we talk to organizations who want to start a governance initiative, they never know where to start. The Governance Readiness Start Bundle empowers organizations to look at high-risk file servers like the finance server or a file share server and understand what data exists and start the cleanup process,” McGann said. “Our software along with the professional services bundled in makes compliance possible at a reasonable price without taxing company personnel.”
