Mid-sized companies find their security process and systems are breaking down due to an inability to scan a proliferating number of file formats for an ever-growing number of regulated information categories. As breach, audit, and excessive fines risks increase, security leaders find that discovering and protecting sensitive data requires too many unrelated systems and simply takes far too long.

With Qostodian Recon™, CISOs and Auditors in mid-sized businesses can discover and analyze a vast array of network-accessible data sources, including NAS, and cloud drives, both in the office and within work-from-home environments. The new centrally deployed solution scans and classifies more than 25 personally identifiable information (PII) and regulated data types out-of-the-box with a scan speed up to 50X faster than other solutions currently on the market. Further, the solution natively supports more than 150 file formats, making Qostodian Recon™ a turnkey experience with immediate return on investment.

The need for robust data discovery and classification tools has increased over the past year as employees have shifted to work-from-home, adding to the challenge for existing data management solutions. By adding a cost-effective and easy to deploy solution for data discovery use cases, Qohash fulfills its mission to extend sophisticated enterprise-grade data discovery technology to every business with urgent needs for affordable data security and compliance.

"One of the main reasons we switched to Qohash is because of the simplicity it offers. I get answers quicker; it takes less time to install, less time and money to maintain, yet it scans 10x faster [than my previous solution]," said George Plytas, Head of Information Security at CAA Club Group, one of the launch customers for Qostodian Recon™.

"Data is both an opportunity and a liability for businesses; we want to make sure that any business can easily find and secure their sensitive data," said Qohash CEO Jean Le Bouthillier during the launch. "Regulators, businesses, and the public at large are waking up to the fact that 55 percent of all company data is floating around unmonitored and frequently unprotected. When leaked, this data costs an average of $8.64 million to the organization, not including the loss of reputation." Le Bouthillier adds, "new data discovery solutions such as Qostodian Recon are helping businesses address this emerging problem with minimal staffing requirements. Thanks to our unique approach and high-quality software, we aim to make Qohash the de-facto choice for data discovery in a world where data is one of the most valuable corporate assets."
