Data Governance

Keep pace with data, manage access entitlements, audit access to files and emails, identify and involve data owners, and find and classify sensitive and critical data.

Control Your Organisations Data

Wi-Manx is the only Isle of Man supplier that offers voice, hosting, internet and datacentre services to businesses.

Founded in 2004, Wi-Manx has since grown to provide services to a truly global customer base. We provide a reliable service to over 2,700 customers across B2B and B2C markets, and pride ourselves on our bespoke solutions and first-class support.

Data governance with Wi-Manx allows you to keep control of your organisations data, through managing accessing entitlements, audit access to files and emails, identification of data owners and classifying sensitive and critical data.

Managed business data

Managing Business Data

It is easy for organisations to lose control of their data with unstructured data accountings for 80% of business data, doubling in volume every 12-18 months.

Data encompasses documents, images, spreadsheets, emails, videos and audio files stored on servers, NAS devices and in semi-structured repositories.

Organisations form cross-functional teams that access fluid sets of digital resources. The increasing number of teams, combined with additional management and security requirements, cause the number of data containers to increase faster than the information.

Automated Data Access Workflow Control

DataPrivilege automates data governance by providing a framework for users and data owners to be directly involved in the access review and authorisation workflows.

Data owners can also create managed subfolders resulting in quicker, more secure collaboration. A configurable web interface for data owners, business users, and IT administrators automates data access requests, owner and IT authorisation of permissions, group changes (including distribution groups), automated entitlement reviews, and data policy enforcement (e.g. ethical walls).

A complete audit trail ensures that data governance policies are in place and being adhered to.

The Varonis Metadata Framework

Varonis collects data from a variety of sources—users and groups from directory services, permissions from file, folder, public folder, mailbox and site access control lists, file and email access activity and sensitive content indicators from inspection of file contents and metadata.

The Varonis Metadata Framework™ non-intrusively collects this critical metadata, generates metadata where it is lacking, pre-processes it, normalises it, analyses it, stores it, and presents it to IT administrators in an interactive, dynamic interface. The Varonis Data Governance Suite will scale to present and future requirements using standard computing infrastructure, even as the number of functional relationships between metadata entries grows exponentially.

Data Governance suite offers a flexible solution

Flexible Solution

The Data Governance Suite gives organisations the ability to keep pace with their data, manage access entitlements efficiently and effectively and, audit access to every file and email event.

The solution identifies and involves data owners to help find and classify sensitive and business critical data.

Wi-Manx offers a comprehensive and effective solution for data governance, using a scalable and extensible metadata framework.

Complete, Real-time, Audit Data

Every file open, create, move, modify and delete, every access control and group membership change, and every email sent, received and opened is captured and recorded in an efficient, normalised database that is sortable and searchable.

Detailed, data-driven reports can be easily created and are automatically provided to data owners and IT administrators.
