What is CA Data Content Discovery?

CA Data Content Discovery helps you identify data exposure risks on z Systems™ by scanning through the mainframe data infrastructure. Data that is scanned includes data that may be highly regulated in multiple vertical sectors or other non-public data sources deemed critical to your business. By discovering where the data is located, classifying the data to determine sensitivity level and providing comprehensive reporting on the scan results, data can be adequately protected and exposure risks can be mitigated.
