Can a Digital Asset Vault Help Minimize Your Data Risk?

Blog Post created by Diane Saucier Employee on Jul 9, 2018

Financial institutions of all sizes are dealing with an ever-increasing volume of emails, instant messages, images, audio recordings, and other types of digital data and communication files. All of those files can be spread across business units and legacy systems, scattered around the globe in different languages and time zones. How can you make sure your organization is compliant with increasingly complex and stringent regulations?



One way to address the challenges presented by unprecedented data growth and escalating regulatory scrutiny is to adopt a content management solution that can help you address those needs. It’s useful to think of a method of storing, managing, and tracking this information collectively in what could be called a digital asset vault.

So What is a Digital Asset Vault?

A digital asset vault helps to ensure your data is secure, accessible and actionable, all while keeping it backed up and reportable for regulatory and compliance needs. It can provide the massive scale and robust object storage, both on-premise and cloud-based, needed to secure your structured and unstructured data, while also providing guaranteed data retention and recovery capabilities.

Utilizing an advanced metadata tagging system that supports quick image storage and retrieval, a digital asset vault enables fully auditable, policy-driven, automated controls for retention, deletion and modification of data across regulatory regimes.

In short, a digital asset vault can help you manage enormous quantities of complex, often unstructured, data that has unique security and compliance challenges.
