OneTrust today introduced OneTrust DataDiscovery, a complete data discovery and classification solution integrated into the full OneTrust platform.

OneTrust DataDiscovery comes with 500 pre-built connectors out of the box to discover, categorize and classify data across all systems. Customers can also build custom integrations through the self-service connection builder.

In order to maintain an effective program for privacy, security and trust, organizations must first understand the data they hold and how it’s processed. This data often lives across a combination cloud, on-premise, and legacy systems and in structured, semi-structured, and unstructured formats, which makes discovering and classifying this data a complex task.

OneTrust DataDiscovery streamlines the process from initial discovery, classification and mapping, to fulfilling privacy rights requests and demonstrating compliance. OneTrust DataDiscovery helps companies:

  • Find data assets and identify systems
  • Discover, categorize and classify data within identified systems
  • Correlate data to personal identities
  • Fulfill privacy rights requests for access, deletion and more
  • Comply with global regulations, flag risk and demonstrate compliance

“Personal data can be stored in a variety of formats and systems within an organization, structured and unstructured, on cloud or on premise, or somewhere in between. If a business does not know their data or associated identity, then it cannot be protected or in compliance with global privacy laws and security frameworks,” said Kabir Barday, OneTrust CEO and Fellow of Information Privacy (FIP). “The AI-powered OneTrust DataDiscovery gives companies a powerful tool to discover and classify data, and then use that insight to power their privacy, security and trust programs, integrated throughout the OneTrust platform. Customers can understand not only where their gaps are, but how to solve them.”
