I received an email from SailPoint this morning. It has just published a white paper on how to secure access to unstructure data.
It examines each of the organizational and technical barriers to securing unstructured data and provides practical advice on how IAM managers should respond to this risk. It explains how identity governance can be extended to better secure unstructured data to meet privacy and compliance requirements.
So far, there are only 2 products that can govern unstructured data. 1 from SailPoint (I think they bought over a product called WhiteBox). The other is One Identity Manager - Data Governance.
The primary targets are Windows Shared Folders/Files, especially within SharePoint.
I know there is already a project on-going in Australia that adopts Identity Manager - Data Governance Edition. Wishing them a successful implementation!
In my opinion, Data Governance is quick to win (for Sales), but very hard to exit (for Implementers).
Will I take this up? :)
