How Phinder Works
Phinder works by efficiently scanning your data lake for candidate files, such as plain text files, Microsoft Word documents, PDF files, and others. During analysis, Phinder maintains a report detailing the files suspected of containing PII and PHI. Phinder’s analysis can be performed on-demand or automatically as your data lake grows. Phinder runs entirely in your own environment to ensure the safety and security of your data.
Phinder currently supports Amazon S3 data lakes.
