Code42: Compliance Without the Headaches

The speed and breadth of regulatory change is a growing issue for businesses around the globe. The number of regulatory issues that require business compliance has been steadily increasing. Already, more than one-third of organizations spend at least an entire day each week tracking and analyzing regulatory change, according to a survey by ThomasReuters. What’s more, a majority of businesses expect the need for compliance management to grow at a time when a shortage of compliance personnel is forcing them to do more with less. Fortunately, Code42 helps you close that compliance gap with heightened visibility, easy compliance management, and the confidence that it already supports the standards and regulatory controls you care about.

Complying with standards and procedures provides a lot of benefits. But, for many companies, it also poses a stressful and costly problem. Obtaining visibility into where there are gaps in compliance can be difficult. Passing a compliance audit can be one of the most taxing activities an IT administrator handles. Failing to pass an audit can mean lost accounts and time taken away from the day-to-day business. In the end, it’s a lot easier and less expensive to pass an audit than to face the distraction and red tape of trying to become compliant after the fact.

Taking the stress out of compliance with Code42

Code42 software reduces the time, stress, and financial burden of meeting a company’s compliance requirements. It also makes it easier to preserve information for legal holds and compliance audits. Consider the following benefits:

  • Complies with a broad range of standards. Code42 supports a wide range of compliance efforts. (Please see the full list below.) And in our latest 5.4 release, we’ve included a new single-click compliance setting feature that enables IT administrators to restrict access to data in accordance with requirements such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), and the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA). But, Code42 does more than just constrain data access to conform to standards. It also helps IT administrators become more educated. The compliance settings button prompts a guided wizard that sheds light on the implications of different settings, minimizing the back-and-forth communication required with the company’s legal team.
  • Offers 360° visibility into an organization’s data. With Code42, administrators can see who’s accessing data, where they’re storing it, and who’s attempting to decrypt it. For example, consider a hospital that needs to comply with HIPAA regulations governing the use of patient records. With Code42’s easy-to-use administrative console, IT admins can see who is opening patient health records and how they’re using them. They can see when an IT person is saving patient information to an external hard drive, for instance, or when a marketing employee is emailing a spreadsheet with patient information—allowing them to take immediate corrective action.
  • Reinforces companies’ data retention policies. Code42 automatically backs up every version of every file—continuously and without disrupting users—eliminating the need for manual data collection and re-collection. With Code42, IT admins can also see where individual employees are moving data, and whether any business departments or end-user devices are out of compliance.
  • Adheres to leading-edge encryption standards. With Code42, you can rest assured you are using the strongest, leading-edge standard encryption protocols in the industry today. It supports the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), considered the standard for electronic data encryption and used by businesses worldwide. It also uses the Transport Layer Security (TLS), a cryptographic protocol that ensures privacy and data integrity between communicating computer applications.
  • Provides a thorough audit trail complete with file content. Unlike other backup software, which only provides the name of the file accessed, the computer used to access it, and the time and date, Code42 goes a step further by showing the actual content of the file. With the actual content in hand, administrators can definitively understand the exact information that’s been accessed.
  • Preserves in-place legal holds. With Code42, organizations can place users under legal hold and automatically lock data retention policies in real time without affecting existing backups or productivity. In addition, data under legal hold can be automatically sent to legal teams or eDiscovery systems.
