Veritas Unlocks Insights from Unstructured Data

Veritas Technologies has announced greater choice and flexibility for customers requiring data compliance solutions. Veritas Data Insight, which allows organizations to assess and mitigate unstructured and sensitive data compliance and cyber resilience risks, is now available in a software-as-a-service (SaaS) consumption model.

Dark data, which is data with unknown value, makes up roughly 52% of the average organization’s unstructured data estate. In addition to containing redundant, obsolete and trivial (ROT) data that costs organizations millions of dollars in unnecessary storage, such data may also contain sensitive information posing significant regulatory compliance and cyber resilience risks.

Veritas Data Insight offers in-depth data visibility, context and analysis across multi-cloud infrastructures to help resolve the cost, compliance and security risks associated with unstructured, dark and sensitive data. It also plays a key role in helping organizations respond to cyber threats such as ransomware by highlighting security weaknesses before an attack, providing early warning during an attack and ensuring decision-makers are armed with important insights about the data that may have been compromised after an attack.

Now, organizations can consume Veritas Data Insight from the cloud as a multi-tenant, Veritas-managed SaaS application. This option enables simplified onboarding; automatic updates, including new content sources; and greater scalability.

Johnny Karam, Managing Director & Vice President of International Emerging region at Veritas Technologies, said, “With the increasing use of large language models (LLMs) to drive AI-enhanced business capabilities across the region, comes an exponential increase in the already vast amount of data being transferred into, and processed by UAE businesses. With this comes a significant portion that is either valuable data that is being incorrectly identified or ROT data they don’t need. Our new Veritas Data Insight capabilities in the cloud help our customers navigate through the unstructured, dark, and sensitive data to add value and reduce risk without adding more complexity to any organisation’s IT infrastructure.”

Additional enhancements in the latest release of Veritas Data Insight—both on-premises and in the cloud—are designed to increase the product’s performance across all its core data compliance, governance and cyber resilience functions. These performance enhancements include:

  1. Efficiency – Data indexing now requires up to 50% less disk space.
  2. Speed – Expedited data classification better focuses on relevant content.
  3. Coverage – Improved indexing and targeted classification results in more comprehensive compliance.

Juan Orlandini, chief technology officer, North America at Insight Enterprises, said, “Veritas Data Insight is key to helping our clients gain critical knowledge about their data to identify security threats, address privacy compliance and enable lifecycle management. With SaaS consumption, more efficient indexing and faster classification, it becomes even more compelling.”
