We’re pleased to announce the release of Micro Focus ControlPoint 5.9, the latest version of Micro Focus’s market-leading File Analysis product. ControlPoint provides organizations with visibility and understanding of their business risk associated with sensitive and PII (personally identifiable information) stored in unstructured data across enterprise systems.

ControlPoint enables a better understanding of data privacy readiness and risk exposure by indexing, analyzing, and auto-classifying information that might be relevant to GDPR and CCPA requirements in a streamlined fashion. It can then systematically apply policies to applicable information for security, data protection, and data lifecycle management purposes.

In this latest release, the continued development of ControlPoint adds increased functionality with significant performance improvements, providing better file analysis in a shorter amount of time. ControlPoint 5.9 continues to build off of the IDOL framework and now utilizes IDOL FIND to perform full data subject access request (DSAR) reviews. Utilizing FIND, search results can now be exported to ControlPoint where action can be taken on those files.

Additional enhancements include:

  • 3x to 6x performance improvements with data ingestion
  • Data privacy enhancement with PII summary roll up
  • NiFi enhancements through standard UI integrations
  • Encryption support for Azure RMS
  • PII ID’s for 10 additional countries, including Japan

ControlPoint delivers increased visibility of unstructured data to improve security, efficiency, and regulatory compliance. The product provides clean-up of ROT data and discovery of redundant, obsolete, or trivial data in email repositories, file shares, and SharePoint sites for better access to valuable information.
