Discovery Bundles

PKWARE provides predefined patterns to help discover sensitive data throughout an organization. These patterns can be organized into bundles to help categorize -types of patterns that apply to specific discovery and/or remediation activities. E.g., if you want to discover Personally Identifiable Information (PII), you can create a ‘PII’ bundle and include patterns like social security numbers, email addresses, mailing addresses and Tax ID numbers.

The following actions can be performed on Filter Bundles:

  1. Edit – Allows you to edit the patterns, thresholds, inclusions and exclusions associated with a bundle.
  2. Clone – Allows you to copy the configuration of an existing bundle, which can be edited without impacting the original bundle.
  3. Delete – Allows you to delete the filter bundle.
