5 Ways Galileo Can Make Your Job Easier 

As a Network Administrator, you probably encounter daily network and user management headaches. Whether they come from onboarding, security threats, data retention or exceeding storage limits, these issues take you away from other important tasks that also need your attention.

What if Galileo could give you an educated, bird’s eye view of your user and storage landscape to reduce data management surprises and help you better plan for the future?

 

1. You Don’t Have to be the Bad Guy

Getting users to clean out their unnecessary personal data can be difficult, and employees don’t always listen to your requests because they don’t understand the organization’s storage usage and limits. Using Galileo as a proof point, you can implement and enforce a strong data management policy that sets data limits for users while still adhering to compliance and retention policies, so that their data usage stays in check and you don’t have to hassle them to clean it up.

2. Gain Tangibility for your Abstract Data Hoarding

Galileo can give you detailed, graphical reports about the data on your storage network and the people who have access to it, so there’s no guesswork as to where and from whom the data is coming. With over 14 different types of reports, you can gain an understanding of network data from all perspectives; including file size, age, duplicates, compliance, modifications, extensions, owners, permissions, security, historical comparisons and more.

3. Get Help with Future Planning

Just because you know how much storage you’re currently using, doesn’t mean you can estimate how that storage volume will change in the next 5+ years. Nor does it mean that all the data currently in use is practical and/or essential. Once you’ve discovered the amount of data that is necessary for your organization, you can use Galileo’s historical comparison reports to view past usage and predict how that need will change in the future; so you can support buying increased storage space or implementing a system for vaulting data.

4. Ensure Security for your Organization’s Data and Your Job…

In the undesirable event of a data leak, the blame could very quickly come back to you. Galileo can eliminate some inevitable human error in manual data user access management. Galileo’s security reports give you an accurate picture of potential security threats so that you can mitigate unstructured data risk and resolve any current issues.

5. Prioritize Information-Related Initiatives

By using Galileo for data inventory management, you can begin to give your data corporate value as an asset to your organization and therefore improve the casual attitude often held towards it. If data is seen as an economic value, it will introduce a lifecycle discipline and allow for the establishment of data retention policies and practices.
