UnBiasIt Data Detect

Shine a light on your dark data.

Detect and clean unstructured and dark data from virtually any repository.

With UnBiasIt Data Detect, Panther Data Solutions delivers a purpose-built solution to interrogate petabyte-scale unstructured data volumes to identify instances of racial bias.  UnBiasIt Data Detect profiles data to identify several sensitive data, including (but not limited to) race, ethnicity, genders, as well as other forms of PII, PHI, and PCI.  Not only will this enable enterprises to identify potential dark data risks, but the built-in workflows facilitate the movement of data to secure repositories, preservation in an archive, upstream review platforms, and much more.

UnBiasIt Data Detect 1.0

Shine a light on your dark, structured, and unstructured data repositories with our lightning-fast Panther Data Detect.


UnBiasIt Data Detect is the latest application Panther Data Solutions is introducing to the marketplace, expanding the scope of our data governance solutions.  Data Detect enables organizations to understand, gain control, and manage their ever-expanding unstructured data repositories.  Data Detect provides an in-depth analysis that will be performed on repositories targeted by Data Detect, producing a rich inventory, classification, and data lineage of your organization's data.  

It's been found that data governance programs often do not address 90-95% of an organization's data!  In Global 1,000 companies at any given time:

  • 1% of data is on legal hold

  • 4% is subject to regulatory or legal retention requirements

  • 25% has business intelligence value

  • Leaving 70% as ROT [Redundant, Obsolete, Trivial], or garbage 


The point:  Do not get too far in your security program or data consolidation efforts until you can identify and value your data while eliminating the garbage.  


  • Interrogate petabytes of unstructured and dark data repositories.

  • Delete legacy unstructured data no longer required.

  • Gain comprehensive visibility into all of your enterprise-wide data repositories to find your business-critical information with our user-friendly interface.

  • Identify and eliminate Redundant, Obsolete, and Trivial Data [ROT] to increase the value of your data for long-term retention.

  • Locate all Personally Identifiable Information [PII] in your IT landscape to comply with Data Subject Access Requests [DSARs] under GDPR.

  • Enhance the development of artificial intelligence and machine learning initiatives with higher quality data sets containing more relevant information.

UnBiasIt Data Detect is the premier solution for capturing, cleaning, managing, and providing access to all of your dark data [providing a consistent, defensible manner in which to apply critical compliance, purge, or retain decisions].

UnBiasIt Data Detect enables organizations to move and analyze data from anywhere to anywhere, with Data Detect acting as the ‘data police’ in between.  Whether our customers are simply managing their corporate data responsibly, going to the cloud, complying with GDPR data privacy regulations, or merging with another company, Data Detect provides the capability to locate, identify, categorize, and properly manage the dark data scattered throughout their organization.

Our customers can use Panther Data Detect to:

  • Perform Data Migrations.  Before migrating repositories containing unknown amounts of ROT to the cloud or to another destination, Data Detect ensures that organizations save money on hosting fees by migrating only business-critical data.

  • Streamline M&A Activity.  Data Detect makes your Information Technology team's lives a lot easier during Mergers & Acquisitions in two critical ways.  One, during the M&A due diligence process by providing visibility into the data being acquired [especially the dark data] to separate valuable information from ROT.  Two, during post-M&A activities that involve integrating legacy systems and information you will be able to quickly call attention to potential issues and areas of undue risk in these acquired data assets before they become major business problems.   

  • Detect Personally Identifiable Information [PII].  As big data is doubling every two years, and the need to quickly identify and produce unstructured or ‘dark data,’ for legal and compliance requests has been exacerbated by the advent of new data privacy regulations such as the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation [GDPR] and the California Consumer Protection Act [CCPA]. 


       As these modern privacy regulations continue to evolve, Data Detect will drive your data compliance program by helping you identify         unneeded information quickly and purge it flexibly, creating a complete audit trail of the data purged, for legal substantiation, while           also helping facilitate Data Subject Access Requests [DSARs] for compliance.​  This is key for making sure you are confident all data in           virtually any storage device has been accounted for when it's time to access your data for eDiscovery and compliance from

       your archives.

How UnBiasIt Data Detect Works

UnBiasIt Data Detect uses groundbreaking technology to enable organizations to locate, analyze, and most importantly, take prompt action on their oceans of unstructured data.  Data Detect powers an effective information governance strategy with a customizable dashboard that displays rule sets graphically so our customers see what data is affected by the rules they’re building, either enterprise-wide or repository-by-repository.

Trainable clustering technology speeds the identification of similar documents for defensibly applying retention and deletion policies en masse.  Policies are actionable, following flexible workflows for proper data management, moving information to our customer’s location of record while applying appropriate retention rules.  Consistent policy application with detailed reporting provides additional defensibility and confidence in their deletion and purging activities.  Once a policy is applied, data can be purged or held in place, or be moved/copied to the cloud, to a more secure location like our Panther Data Archive with its fine-tuned retention controls, or to any other location you need.  Our customers have complete control over data location and retention.

An ever-changing regulatory landscape has created challenges for executives that require access to robust data analytics that they have confidence in.  Regulations such as GDPR continue to change the way enterprises respond to their data needs, making it difficult to manage, secure, and provide privileged access to data.  Merger and acquisition activity exposes an organization to absorbing ROT [redundant, obsolete, or trivial] data, taking on unnecessary risk.  Enterprise businesses not only face the challenge of processing, analyzing, and acting upon their data but ensuring it maintains privacy and appropriate security of the data.  Non-compliance bears a heavy consequence, and we are prepared to equip our customers with peace of mind and a streamlined process to eliminate their exposure to risk.

We have built a groundbreaking tool to discover, understand, and take action on your data.  Each technological advancement produces more data that must be handled in some way or another.  Data Detect provides critical visibility and understanding to enterprises’ most important asset, their data.  Intuitive dashboards provide executives with key insights into their data landscape, such as ROT analysis, instances of PII [or other sensitive data types], and Privacy compliance posture.  GDPR requirements stretch beyond data retention, emphasizing the importance of data minimization.  Data Detect can help enterprises understand not only the data that they have captured via retention policies but the dark data that exists in their environment that they previously had limited to no awareness of.  Your enterprise resources will be rid of unnecessary information and you will have the assurance that your archive will exceed high-quality data standards.

UnBiasIt Data Detect provides a graphical analysis of all documents, enabling end-users to seed the system to find like-documents for streamlined search.  Beyond the ability to locate and understand your data, Data Detect empowers end users with the ability to take action on their discovered data. Move your data to an alternative location, delete it, copy and quarantine it, or send it to your archive for preservation.  ​

We created our remarkable Data Detect file analysis tool to empower our global customer base to take command and gain a greater understanding of the information that exists in their archives, network file shares, and other data repositories.
