Manage your Shadow IT and uncover hidden risk

Discover and manage the hidden, sensitive spreadsheets, applications, and data assets that lie outside of IT’s control – and create risk.

Now you can easily and efficiently capture and maintain an inventory of the files your organization relies upon and monitor who’s making changes, helping you meet audit and compliance requirements and prevent problems before they impact your enterprise.

“Shadow IT” refers to the hundreds or even thousands of End User Computing (EUC) spreadsheets and other data assets hidden across your enterprise, created by employees using applications that are outside of IT’s development and management process; Excel spreadsheets are one of the most common examples.

ClusterSeven locates the spreadsheets and EUC applications in use across your organization, identifies the relationships between them and their data lineage, and assesses the risks associated with them. You’ll gain transparency into what files you have, who owns each one, and which areas of the business use them.

Classify the risks associated with your newly discovered EUC files and organize them in a centralized database. Once you’ve established the spreadsheets your organization is using, you can carry out a deeper risk analysis on critical files using rules that matter to your business, such as the complexity of a formula or macro, use of sensitive terms in the file like “confidential,” inclusion of unprotected client or personal data, or the presence of hidden worksheets.

How hidden files can affect OpRes compliance →

Easily monitor who’s making what changes to which files by designing workflows and alerts within your central EUC environment in order to help you meet audit and compliance requirements. Know exactly when these files were created or modified and who took those actions using role-based security permissions. And don’t worry about having too many spreadsheets or EUCs: ClusterSeven can handle over 100,000 files in a single database.

How to manage impacts on data privacy compliance →

By creating a control framework to your spreadsheets and databases, you’re establishing a defensible compliance program that can satisfy the requirements of various regulatory bodies. ClusterSeven can assist with managing the review and approval process for critical cells in high-risk or high-stakes spreadsheets and can automate the production of documentary evidence for different regulation requirements with its robust reporting dashboard. ClusterSeven helps satisfy the requirements of a variety of regulations including Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), SMCR, OpRes, data privacy regulations like GDPR, SS 3/18, and SR 11-7 and is agile enough to adapt to any changes in the regulatory obligations.
