The amount of unstructured data managed by organizations continues to grow at a rapid pace. File servers provide a simple, scalable approach for sharing documents; however, file systems are rarely cleaned up. Over the years, the data stored on these file servers builds up and becomes dated, leading to difficulties in finding files when they are needed, increased costs for storage space, and significant risk if sensitive information is stored within these files.
Eventually, it becomes necessary to clean up unnecessary files, which can be a daunting task when there are millions of files and thousands of users who may be accessing them. Most organizations fail to address this problem and eventually face the consequences including increased storage costs or loss due to a breach or insider threat.
