Data classification software that cures your
data-related headaches

Does your organization’s ever-growing data give you a headache? Netwrix Data Classification solves your data-related challenges, such as mitigating the risk of data breaches, realizing the full value of your content, increasing employee productivity and passing compliance audits with less effort.

Identify sensitive information and reduce its exposure
Find sensitive content, such as financial data, medical records and other PII, both on premises and in the cloud. Automatically quarantine critical or sensitive data stored in unsecure locations or accessible by large groups of users to minimize its exposure until you can make a thoughtful remediation decision.
Meet privacy and compliance requirements with less effort and expense
Identify data regulated by GDPR, HIPAA and PCI DSS across your on-premises, cloud or hybrid IT environment, and enforce internal policies based on data type. Satisfy data subject access requests (DSARs) in minutes, not days, by automating the discovery and export of personal information and enabling non-IT teams to run searches themselves.
Get rid of unneeded data to reduce storage costs
Stop storing old data “just in case it may be needed someday”. With Netwrix data classification software, you can discover and clean up redundant, obsolete or trivial information across your IT environment to slash expenses on data storage.
Respond to legal requests without putting your business on hold
Minimize business disruptions during litigation by arming your team with the Netwrix data classification tool. Ensure that they can quickly find the data that must be put on hold, and protect your reputation by keeping irrelevant data, such as old versions of contracts, out of the process.
Derive value from your data to improve decision-making and increase employee productivity
Eliminate clutter and put your data into a logical order to enable knowledge workers to find the data they need for more effective collaboration and knowledge sharing. By analyzing only truly valuable and reliable data, they’ll be able to make better, more informed business decisions.

Understand your data across your entire environment

How is Netwrix Data Classification licensed?
Netwrix Data Classification is licensed by its applications using a subscription licensing model. Most applications are licensed per employee.
Do you use agents to collect data?
No. Netwrix Data Classification operates in agentless mode, so it does not interfere with your data storage system. All index and classification information is collected, analyzed, stored and updated on a separate server.
How easy is the deployment and configuration process? How quickly will I start getting value?
It takes only a couple of hours to deploy Netwrix Data Classification. The time required for the initial classification depends on your data volume, connection speed, server performance and other factors. After that, new data will be indexed incrementally, which is faster.

The solution includes a wide set of predefined taxonomies that cover PII (GDPR), PHI (HIPAA), payment card data (PCI DSS), financial records and other types of protected information, so you can quickly find and secure your sensitive and regulated data. Netwrix also provides free professional consulting services to help you implement and fine-tune the technology to reduce data storage costs, improve user productivity and decision-making.
Can Netwrix Data Classification be integrated with DLP or IRM solutions?
Yes. Netwrix embeds classification information right into the file, increasing the accuracy of data loss prevention (DLP) or information rights management (IRM) tools and optimizing your data security efforts.
How do the files get classified?
Netwrix Data Classification doesn’t simply match character strings and rely on keywords and regular expressions. It also uses compound term processing and statistical analysis, which work in any language or vocabulary, regardless of grammatical style. The classification is performed by analyzing file content using rules defined in the taxonomies.
Can SQL Server Express Edition be used in Netwrix Data Classification deployments?
SQL Server Standard or Enterprise edition is recommended for all Netwrix Data Classification deployments. Visit this page to learn more about software requirements.
