Has your NAS environment become a convenient storage dumpster for your corporate users? Is it overrun by personal files that have no legitimate business use? Worse, could those files pose a risk to your business? Do you even have the tools to find out?
Personal file storage drives up storage costs, increases security vulnerabilities, extends backups, and degrades overall performance. It also contributes to the bloat that keeps many NAS environments from the benefits of all-flash or Hyper-Converged Infrastructure systems. So, how can you tell if your users are dumping personal stuff? With DefendX, that’s how.
DefendX Vision is a data intelligence platform that gives organizations the information they need to make decisions about their corporate file environment, and the storage it consumes.
Fully understanding exactly what users and departments are doing with NAS is just one of many ways to optimize an all-flash or HCI system.
