The new Information Map integration is in Public Preview and available as part of Information Map in the coming quarters, will provide Backup Exec customers with an interactive, real-time view of their unstructured data assets. In addition to visualizing data being protected by Backup Exec, customers that also hold an Information Map entitlement will be able to take advantage of Information Map’s connectors to visualize data across 23 data sources for both on-premises and cloud-based data storage repositories.
Based on this new level of intelligence, customers can make more informed storage decisions, identify areas of risk and make better choices about what data to retain, migrate or delete. This integration will also help customers meet and comply with stringent data privacy regulations around the world, including the European Union’s forthcoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
