According to Article 17 of the GDPR, "the data subject shall have the right to obtain from the [data] controller the erasure of personal data concerning him or her without undue delay and the controller shall have the obligation to erase personal data without undue delay".
This is where Redstor comes in. Backups and archives created and stored with Redstor can be searched to make sure that every reference to a data subject is found. The erasure of relevant data is simple, monitor-able, and audit-able throughout the deletion process.
Global unstructured data search
Redstor enables customers to perform content searches on their unstructured data. This functionality allows customers to find data in a range of file formats, including Office, PDFs and a range of other text formats. Search is particularly powerful for identifying where personal identifiable information, such contact information, exists in unstructured data, helping organisations meet GDPR obligations.
Simple intuitive search
Redstor Search is accessed via an intuitive web interface. The main page of the search portal has two tabs, namely search and deletion history. Search features a variety of parameters to narrow results. Users with appropriate permissions can download or delete files shown in results. The deleted history tab displays a list of successful, failed and pending delete sessions, sorted by date and time, along with information about them.
Files returned in search results can be accessed immediately using InstantData. If required, files can be deleted from backups and archives.
Unstructured data indexed for search can come from any server protected by Redstor and includes data protected from cloud apps such as Microsoft OneDrive. All search and deletion activity is fully audited for compliance purposes and includes the ability to add comments to explain actions that have been taken on the data.
