Product Spotlight: Saved Searches

A Simple Way to Streamline Investigations

While every organization wants to protect its data, some files are more critical than others. You need to know where these “crown jewels” exist in your organization, and you don’t want to reinvent the wheel every time you need to find them. Fortunately, Code42 Next-Gen Data Loss Protection (DLP) can help you quickly and accurately locate these files — and save your search criteria so you can easily find them again in the future.

Code42 Next-Gen DLP protects your intellectual property from loss, leak, misuse and theft by showing you where critical files live and move. With Code42 Next-Gen DLP, you can quickly search for data using file hash, date range, type, filepath and more — to get a complete inventory of where important files reside on your endpoints and cloud services.

For example, suppose your organization has “secret sauce recipes” that are vital to your company’s success. These critical files should only be accessible to select employees — but how can you verify that is indeed the case? You can use Code42 Next-Gen DLP to see if your company’s secret sauce recipes are saved anywhere they shouldn’t be. Simply use Code42’s investigation capabilities to search for the SHA256 hashes of your most critical files.

Once you’ve built a search to identify the location of those special files, you can save the search criteria so you can quickly re-run a search in the future. These saved searches can be named and edited as needed. Saved searches pre-populate queries so that routine searches can be run more frequently.

Keeping your crown jewels safe is at the heart of a good data loss protection strategy. And now, Code42 makes this even easier using saved searches.
