What can Galileo do for you?

Content Analysis and Classification

Meet compliance and governance requirements involving PII, PCI, PHI, GDPR, and more by identifying files containing personal or sensitive information so you can take measures to secure or justifiably delete these files.

Read More

Compliance to regulations and standards involving data types such as Personal Identifiable Information (PII), the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI), and Protected Health Information (PHI) are at the forefront of data goverance. For example, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), requires that organizations protect customer and consumer private information.

To protect the individual, as well as the organization, you first need to be able to identify the files containing personal and sensitive information. These files might include national identification numbers, credit card numbers, insurance numbers, and more.

Galileo provides the ability to scan file content with user-defined or custom pattern matching. Furthermore, it can automatically classify this content when it is located. For example, located U.S. Social Security numbers might be given a stronger classification than a telephone number.

These files, along with their locations are then specified in a report where you can take actions such as moving the files to more secure locations or deleting the files altogether.

Control Your 'Data Glut'

One objective of File Analysis is getting your “data glut” under control. This begins with defining the contents of your “dark data” and then determining which files to retain, which files to archive, and which files to delete.

Meet the challenge with File Analysis—Don’t just throw more network storage at the problem. With File Analysis, you can enforce efficient data management practices that address uncontrolled data growth rather than masking it.

Discover what you're storing and determine its relevance

With organizations storing terabytes, petabytes, and even exabytes of data, determining the significance of this data becomes extremely challenging. Much of this content is “dark data,”—a classification of files that no one knows about and no one has accessed for a significant amount of time.To address this exploding data growth, you need an enterprise File Analysis tool that reports on and analyzes all of your network-stored data., Such a solution provides information to help you decide which files to retain on primary storage, move to secondary storage, which files to archive, and justifiably delete..

Identify security vulnerabilities to help you address compliance requirements.

In a security audit, you must be able to demonstrate that your network-stored data is secure and that only specific individuals have access permissions for sensitive files. Using Condrey File Ananlysis tools, you can determine the assigned Microsoft  file system permissions for all folders and subfolders from a specified file system path.Furthermore, you can determine the effective rights, or anyone that can access a particular network folder and how that access was obtained, as well as identify all network folders that a specific user can access—invaluable information for helping you address compliance requirements.

Automate and enact network file system management tasks according to policies.

Just obtaining information about your data is not enough. You need the means of taking action on this insight according to policies that you set. Using Condrey File Analysis tools, you establish policies that specify what files to retain, archive, and delete; what types of files to move (according to file type, when last accessed, etc.); where to migrate data; how to load balance data across servers; the specific access rights for user and group storage areas; and much more. These network file system management actions are performed either automatically through directory events, or enacted by a network administrator through a mouse click.

Detail Reports

Generate Detail Reports to include only the files with the search criteria you need, to get more information pertaining to a specific filename extension, owner, duplicate file, or file listed in a Date-Age report. 

Read More

Quickly filter reports for the information you need, to make data intelligence easier. 

In a standard Filename Extension Report, for example, data is grouped alphabetically by filename extensions. Galileo can filter a Detail Report, to include only the files with the extension types you want. The Detail Report can be generated before creating a standard report by specifying it in the report definition, or afterwards by clicking one of the specific listings. 

Custom Query Reports

Design reports with the specific information you need using Custom Query Reports. 

Read More

Galileo provides an extensive list of built-in report types that you can use to quickly get the information you need.  To produce customized reports, you can design a Custom Query Report.  Using the Report Designer and SQL you can design a report with the information and layout for your specific needs. 

You can also utilize File Query Cookbook as a resource for obtaining sample report layouts that have been submitted by the Galileo community. These report layouts can be customized. You can access the File Query Cookbook directly through the Report Designer interface, or at http://www.filequerycookbook.com.

Permissions Reports

Galileo helps you quickly discover who in the organization has access to a particular folder on the network and how that access was derived.

Permissions reports quickly and easily indicate access rights

 
Industry and government regulations require organizations to be vigilant about access to sensitive data. To comply with these regulations, organizations must demonstrate that only authorized individuals have access to areas on the network where sensitive documents reside.

Galileo provides 4 different permissions reports.

  • Assigned NTFS Permissions: Indicates the assigned Microsoft file system user permissions for all folders and subfolders from a specified path
  • Permissions by Path: Indicates the effective rights and permissions (assigned or inherited) to the file system according to the paths you specify
  • Permissions by Identity: Indicates the effective rights or permissions (assigned or inherited) to the file system according to the user objects you specify
  • Historic NTFS Permissions: Indicates which Microsoft file system permissions have changed on a storage resource between two points in time

During a security audit, these reports let you demonstrate:

  • Which individuals have access to sensitive folders on the network
  • A list of folders that a selected user can access
  • Permissions assignments corrected from one point in time compared with another

Of course, you will want to know all of this information before a security audit. Galileo can help you by generating permissions reports on a schedule that you establish. By viewing regularly scheduled permissions reports, you can learn of potential security risks early and take immediate measures to address them.

 

Storage Trending

By entering a price per megabyte or gigabyte, you can determine which users, groups, or departments are costing you the most for file storage.

Read More

Determine the growth rate on a volume or share, calculate when you will be near capacity, and use the information to budget for more storage long before you need it. 

By scheduling regular Volume Free Space scans on specific volumes and shares, Galileo can use that data to graph the pattern of free space on the volume or share. 

Storage Cost Determination

See which users, groups, or departments are costing you the most for file storage. 

Read More

The purchase of a primary storage device can be an expensive storage network investment. The purchase cost is obvious, but how much does it cost to use?

With Galileo, you can set a monetary cost per megabyte of disk storage on a device and then, based on the disk space use by a user, group, or department, determine what each is costing the organization. This could be a great tool for identifying specific departments who have exceeded storage allocations, and get their usage back in check.  

Integrates with Senergy

Through Workload policies in Senergy, Galileo reports that identify files containing personal or sensitive information can be imported into the Data Owner Client where these files can be automatically moved to more secure locations or removed altogether.

Read More

For both remediation and reporting on File Dynamics policies.

Remediating the location of personal or sensitive files is a powerful example of integration between Galileo and Senergy Using Galileo, you can for example, generate a report identifying the names and locations of all files containing credit card numbers. That file can be imported into the Senergy Data Owner Client where a Data Owner can then remediate the location of these files from a less secure, to a more secure location on the network or delete the files altogether.

Organizations that use Senergy to manage their user and collaborative storage, can utilize Galileo to report on the storage according to the target paths of the policies, rather than through an extensive list of specific file paths.

 

GAIN DATA INTELLIGENCE THROUGH ANALYTICS TOOLS AND CUSTOM GRAPHICAL REPORTS FOR ENSURED EFFICIENCY AND COMPLIANCE

Too many organizations are spending more and more money on storage space they think is necessary. But what if you could analyze and see the useless, orphaned and duplicate files that are taking up these volumes of space? What if you could also know who has access to those files, when they were last used and if they should be archived? 

The first step in successful data management is analysis. By utilizing in depth reports on your data surrounding accessibility, growth, and compliance, you can make decisions about deleting or archiving files, addressing potential security threats, load balancing data, and much more to gain effective compliance management. These reports allow you to plan for future growth and save money on unnecessary additional storage space.   

Galileo: A critical component of a File Analysis strategy

An objective of File Analysis is to harness and reduce your "data glut". This begins with first defining the contents of your "dark data", and then determining which files to retain, archive, and delete.

FAQ

How is Galileo licensed?

Galileo requires a production license file or evaluation license file that you can obtain at condrey.co/galileo/download. Galileo is licensed according to the number of users.

What are the differences in features and capabilities between an evaluation license and a production license?

Other than a 30-day lifespan, the Galileo evaluation license has no restrictions to product features and capabilities.

Does Galileo integrate with Senergy?

Yes. Galileo can report on the target paths that make up a Senergy policy.

How does Galileo report on the files stored on network attached storage devices?

Galileo can report on the contents of network attached storage (NAS) devices in Active Directory networks. Because NAS devices are appliances—and thus are incapable of hosting a Galileo Agent—Galileo uses an agent running on another server to collect scan information from the NAS device. In this type of scenario, the Galileo Agent is serving as a proxy agent.
