How does Cognni categorize information?
In order to categorize information, Cognni’s AI conducts an autonomous scan of an organization’s cloud sharing environment - Microsoft Exchange, OneDrive, SharePoint & Teams.
Conventional information discovery tools classify files by searching for pre-defined regulated terms or sensitive info types. These specialize in identifying PII, PCI, and PHI, such as credit card or social security numbers, and these require a lot of time and resources to configure and maintain.
Cognni is the only solution that scans and analyzes the entirety of a file and autonomously determines if the contents belong to one of Cognni’s critical information categories - which include Legal, HR, Financial, Governance, Business, or Other - without relying on regular expressions, user involvement or any pre-configuration.
