Data Security Posture Management for Google Drive

Financial plans, board slides, sales proposals, and employment contracts are just a few examples of the sensitive files that reside in Google Drive with little more than basic authentication to secure them. It’s far too easy to accidentally share sensitive data with external parties. Or to overshare confidential information internally. Further, understanding file age and access patterns is key to managing retention— often a challenging task without additional help. CASB solutions and Google DLP fall short as inflexible, often noisy, and expensive options.

Go from uh-oh to I've got this

Discover and classify sensitive data in Google Drive files

Automatically find and classify sensitive files using 200+ default data classes, from personal information to developer secrets. Data and file identification is fully customizable and complete, allowing for creation of new data classes and “group” classes like PII or PHI. Accuracy assured via AI and extensive testing using Mockingbird.

Eliminate hidden risk from overshared or externally shared files

Files with sensitive information in Google Drive that are either overshared or shared externally represent significant security and compliance risk, potentially exposing sensitive information to unauthorized users. Such exposures can lead to data breaches, privacy violations, and compromise of confidential data. Open Raven quickly identities files with excessive risk and enables automated response actions.

Audit and control access permissions

Google Drive simplifies productivity and collaboration, yet security teams have real challenges enforcing company data governance policies, restricting 3rd party access, and implementing access changes when offboarding employees. With Open Raven, security teams can maintain consistent visibility and conduct periodic audits of access permissions while mitigating data breaches, leaks, compliance lapses, and improper sharing of confidential data.

Identify stale sensitive data

Dealing with data sprawl in Google Drive poses a significant challenge for security teams. While imposing file creation restrictions enhances security, it can hamper productivity and teamwork. Files and folders often remain in Drive long after their usefulness expires or beyond retention requirements resulting in stale data. Open Raven empowers security teams to establish policies detecting stale files containing sensitive data. Access can be restricted or files tagged for removal, effectively curbing risks and lowering expenses.
