PixAlert is at the forefront of detection and risk prevention of inappropriate image and critical data loss on corporate networks. With a growing responsibility and accountability for companies to deploy effective detection and data loss prevention solutions, PixAlert’s software is a proven safeguard and market leader in protecting corporate reputation, brand integrity and lessening financial risk.
The PixAlert audit process consists of four major steps:
STEP 1 - Planning & Setup: This section covers the installation, setup and planning of an audit scan. PixAlert has an extensive audit planning process that ensures the audits are setup and executed successfully. It includes identifying the IT targets to be scanned, agreeing the scanning rules and configuration.
STEP 2 - Scan Target Components: In this phase each target component is scanned in non intrusive mode by PixAlert Auditor to discover unsecured sensitive data and inappropriate image content. Scan results, are stored encrypted in the PixAlert Auditor database. Each scan is created and saved, with corresponding scan results, under a separate name to allow users the option to review and report on each scan separately or together.
STEP 3 - Review & Classification: At this stage the user in charge of the audit has an opportunity to analyse the results and preview the report. During this phase suspect images and critical data results are reviewed and categorised. Also during this stage, users have an option to exclude some scan results from the final report to tailor the report for specific purposes.
Specific training is available from PixAlert on how to classify scan results and how to interpret each result or groups of results, include or exclude them before the final report is produced.
STEP 4 - Report Production:

PixAlert Auditor classifies information found based on its incident severity rating engine
PixAlert Auditor also allows entities to see the source of data found as part of the scan. For instance data may be found in emails or in files. This allows entities to locate data in an easier way.
The report also provides information showing data owners for each type of information. This allows entities to see which users' machines are linked to which type of non compliant practice.
PixAlert Auditor can also provide history of access for each file it has scacnned. Thus it allows entities to see when suspect files on selected target components have been accessed last
