  • Patent number: 11443061
    Abstract: A backup or storage management system is provided that can secure data within a primary storage environment that stores data in an unsecured format. The storage management system can automatically analyze data received for backup from the primary storage environment and determine whether the data includes information that has been identified as sensitive and/or information that is determined within a threshold degree of probability to be sensitive. The storage management system can then modify the storage of the data that includes sensitive information at the primary storage environment, thereby enabling the data to be secured within the unsecured, or partially secured, primary storage environment. Advantageously, in certain embodiments, by securing data with sensitive information within an unsecured storage environment, embodiments disclosed herein can reduce the occurrences of a data breach or data leak.

  • Publication number: 20220197865
    Abstract: A system for providing user access to electronic mail includes an email client and an email server. The email client receives and communicates a user interaction with an email message The email server that receives the communication, determines whether the email message stored in a live database or in a backup storage. Upon determination that the email message is stored in a backup storage, the email server performs a message exchange with a backup storage system to perform the user-requested action.

  • Publication number: 20220012134
    Abstract: An illustrative cloud-based air-gapped data storage management (destination) system obtains authorized access to other (source) systems' backup copies, replicates those copies within the destination system, parses supplemental metadata included in the source backup copies, and integrates the replica copies into the destination system as though natively created there. Replica copies are integrated as backup copies without first restoring the source backup copies to a native data format. The source system lacks knowledge of or connectivity with the destination system, thus maintaining an “air gap” between the systems. The destination system preferably operates in a cloud computing environment. The destination system uses supplemental metadata from the replica copies to re-create or mimic the source's computing environment and to restore backed up data from the replica copies.

  • Publication number: 20210258366
    Abstract: A method and system for remotely executing commands at a client computing device. The method comprises receiving a selection of commands to transmit to a group of client computing devices via a webserver. The group of client computing devices, as well as the selected commands, are associated with a group identifier. The method validates access privileges of the administrator to transmit the selected commands to the group of client computing devices. Upon receipt of the selected commands, the webserver transmits the selected commands to at least one registered proxy server. The registered proxy server then determines one or more client identifiers associated with the group identifier. Each client identifier is assigned to a client computing device. Upon receipt of the selected commands, the registered proxy server transmits the selected commands to client computing devices in the group of client computing devices matching the determined client identifiers.

  • Publication number: 20210026982
    Abstract: A content analysis system of an information management system can analyze data for one or more data governance tasks. The content analysis system can reduce the overhead on the information management system when identifying sensitive data by analyzing a portion of the data in the file without analyzing the entirety of the file. The content analysis system may reduce overhead by analyzing a portion of files that include structured data. If the portion of the file that includes structured data does not include sensitive data, it is often the case that the entire file excludes sensitive data. Thus, overhead can be reduced by analyzing the portion of the file instead of the entire file. Further, the content analysis system can modify an information management job based on the determination of the inclusion of sensitive data to comply with data protection and privacy rules.

  • Publication number: 20200195721
    Abstract: An information management system according to certain aspects can implement application archiving. The system may archive one or more applications on computing devices to make more storage space available on these devices. The system can determine which applications on client computing device to archive based on various factors. Some examples of factors can include frequency of use, application type, amount of application data and/or storage, user and/or device location, etc. The data to be archived can include one or more executable file(s), metadata, actual data, etc. After an application is archived, the system can generate a placeholder for the application; a placeholder can include information for restoring the archived application.

  • Patent number: 9984006
    Abstract: Data storage systems are disclosed for automatically generating encryption rules based on a set of training files that are known to include sensitive information. The system may use a number of heuristic algorithms to generate one or more encryption rules for determining whether a file includes sensitive information. Further, the system may apply the heuristic algorithms to the content of the files, as determined by using natural language processing algorithms, to generate the encryption rules. Moreover, systems are disclosed that are capable of automatically determining whether to encrypt a file based on the generated encryption rules. The content of the file may be determined using natural language processing algorithms and then the encryption rules may be applied to the content of the file to determine whether to encrypt the file.
