New CyberRes Voltage file scanning suite enables proactive data protection with SmartScan


Powerful platform delivers enhanced global security awareness through software as a service and is available as an MSSP offering

SANTA CLARA, Calif., September 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — CyberRes, a business unit of Micro Focus (LSE: MCRO; NYSE: MFGP), today announced a new version of Voltage File Analysis Suite (FAS), a cloud-based platform that combines the latest in data discovery and protection. New features in Voltage FAS include SmartScan, an intelligent sampling and dynamic tagging tool for petabyte-scale data discovery, enabling data analysts to find areas of higher data risk faster. .

“The new CyberRes Voltage file analysis suite takes data security to the next level with its data discovery and protection capabilities within a single solution,” said Reiner Kappenberger, Director of Product Management, Privacy and Voltage Data Protection. “Because it is delivered as a SaaS solution, it has the scalability to meet the needs of any user’s data estate. Additionally, the dynamic Voltage SmartScan tool provides users with the resources to perform more more prescriptive and in-depth approaches to their data infrastructure and take more targeted protective measures.”

Voltage FAS is unconstrained by geographic or political boundaries, enabling users to achieve and maintain compliance standards for the growing number of privacy regulations around the world. Voltage FAS enhances global privacy awareness through dynamic data masking and contextual entity detection for over thirty-nine countries and economic regions.

Also with this release, Voltage FAS is now available as a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) offering, which goes hand-in-hand with its availability as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform. Voltage FAS works with cloud, on-premises, and all hybrid models by understanding and managing data in place. As some regions require data residency for organizations, Voltage FAS can also be deployed on private clouds, allowing organizations to efficiently find and protect their sensitive data without any data leaving the region.

“The release of our MSP/MSSP Voltage as a Service offering is designed to empower managed security service providers with flexible go-to-market options, pay-as-you-go models, unified use cases discovery tools to create managed service catalog offerings, meeting customer requirements for results-driven data discovery and protection with extremely fast time to value,” said Marianne Van der PluymVP Global MSSP Strategy and Sales.

One MSSP that has capitalized on the flexibility of Voltage FAS is Advania Sweden. “At Advania, we have built our data management as a service on the Voltage/FAS platform in our own data center and are able to comply with strict government rules and GDPR,” said Tomas Wanselius, CEO of Advania Sweden.

The new version of Voltage FAS also receives high marks from end users. “File Analysis Suite plays a pivotal role in our environment, not only supporting Turkish data protection and PCI/DSS regulations, but also helping us understand other critical/sensitive data that needs to be protected”, Olcay Nisanoglu, Director of IT Operations, BELBIM. “As this project was a priority for the management team, we took immediate action to start the project. Thanks to the functionality of SmartScan with File Analysis Suite, all critical files were quickly identified, allowing us to focus effectively on these areas.”

Voltage FAS’ data discovery capabilities can reach deeper and wider into unstructured data repositories than most on the market. Voltage FAS supports over 1,000 file types and discovery across popular sources of unstructured data and on-premises and cloud collaboration platforms, including Microsoft 365, SharePoint, Exchange, Azure File and Object Stores, Google Workspaces, SMB (Samba), Amazon S3 Object Stores, and other sources through a custom connector API. Voltage FAS includes the latest Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology to allow users to discover sensitive data in images, such as ID and contract scans.
