Qostodian RECON

Know exactly how much of your customers’ sensitive data is in your possession. Scan every file and business system, for a flat rate fee.

Results

We switched to Qohash because it was faster and lighter than our legacy solution. We installed it in minutes (rather than months). It requires less time and money to maintain, and yet delivers business-critical answers 10x faster. It’s been a game-changer for us at CAA.

I needed facts in the form of a comprehensive data inventory. In this job, you never want to go on assumptions. MNP recommended Recon because it gives us a full picture of all sensitive customer data in our possession – on servers, cloud drives, emails and even laptops.

Recon helped us adapt to new regulatory requirements. We now quickly generate an audit-ready report to provide to regulators. We can also provide evidence that data was ‘destroyed.’ Best of all, our customers’ data is anonymized and never leaves our environment.

Recon enables us to cut through the noise, weed out false positives and focus on what matters. It helped us drive the success of the data governance and cloud migration projects. It also helped reduce costs by ensuring only necessary data made it into the cloud.

Why Recon

Scans that defy legacy limitations.
50x more speed
Recon discovers and classifies sensitive data elements up to 50x faster than alternatives. It scans every file type, in every location, with no data limits.

Recon advantage

Surgical precision

Recon focuses you on the most critical areas of exposure at breakneck speed. Not all types of sensitive data carry equal risk – that’s why we made Recon configurable. Recon finds and classifies the sensitive data that’s most critical to your business. Risk is ranked and contextualized, so your team can cut through the noise and focus on the real risks, faster.

Data element granularity list

Data element granularity

Recon doesn’t just look at files – it finds and scans specific data elements within those files. Why does this matter? One file could have 1000s of data elements. When assessing risk, you need visibility into what’s in the file.

Recon doesn’t just look at files – it finds and scans specific data elements within those files. Why does this matter? One file could have 1000s of data elements. When assessing risk, you need visibility into what’s in the file, as each element carries a specific risk level.

Recon focuses you on the most critical areas of exposure at breakneck speed. Not all types of sensitive data carry equal risk – that’s why we made Recon configurable. Recon finds and secures the sensitive data that’s most critical to your business. It not only finds specific data elements, it assigns each element a likelihood score. It then ranks risk according to sensitive data type, enabling your team to cut through the noise and focus on the real risks, faster.

Recon delivers scanning results up to 10x faster than alternatives. Our customers average ~50 GB per hour scan times. When it comes to preparing for an audit or responding to a security incident, every second counts. On the flip side, legacy technology is CPU hungry and takes weeks to months to scan your environment.

Recon delivers the fastest time to value. It installs in 5-minutes, runs on a single machine (virtual or physical), and requires little to no training.

Virtually any file system the Windows File Explorer can traverse is a scan target.

Recon enables you to schedule scans on specific scan targets as needed. Schedule a date in advance of your audit or other critical event and receive a full inventory with data mapped to regulations.

The executable is ~650 MB.

Recon requires a minimum of 2 CPU cores and 16 GB RAM. For optimal results, we recommend 4 CPU cores and 32 GB RAM.

Recon can be installed locally in 5 minutes or less.

Recon is designed to operate entirely within your environment. We believe in data privacy – including yours and do not have access to your data.

Recon runs on a single virtual machine, with zero dependencies on other tools. It works like a desktop application – without a specific kernel driver.
