Dark Data Assessment


Gain control of costs associated with storing and maintaining information and reduce your compliance and security risks.

Where do you start? Most of the information is dark data; no one really knows who the owner is and whether it’s business relevant or not. The Bytes Dark Data Assessment utilises industry-leading Veritas Data Insight, a tool that helps organisations improve unstructured data governance to reduce costs, reduce risk, and achieve compliance through actionable intelligence into data ownership, usage, and access controls.
