Actifile Use Cases

Actifile supports both IP protection as well as regulatory compliance use cases:





Community hospital has a variety of endpoints including Doctors with BYOD, departmental and administration endpoints. Due to the BYOD endpoints, DLP was deemed to be ineffective and the hospital decided to use Actifile.

Actifile enabled the hospital to:

  1. Discover existing PHI on the hospital’s endpoints.

  2. Transparently encrypt all hospital related PHI on roaming endpoints (such as the BYOD Doctor endpoints)

  3. Create audits and report on PHI usag

A large financial services that has an existing DLP implementation integrated Actifile to solve two issues:

  1. Support provisioning of laptops to their senior managers.

  2. Enable the protection of data at subcontractors (such as printers, lawyers, HR/benefits, etc.).

Actifile enabled the financial services company to control the data without risking scanning employee private data and/or other financial institutions’ customer data.

Construction is big business with fierce competition. With project managers traversing the globe with laptops crammed full with project data (plans, budgets, proposals, architecture plans, etc.), the risks were unacceptable. Furthermore, connectivity is not always perfect at construction sites. So relying on cloud is not an options.

By pointing Actifile to their project repository, Actifile was able to help the company protect their assets transparently – ensuring that authorized personnel were able to get their job accomplished – but in a protected manner.

A large duty free retailer has point of sales machines everywhere, some with network access capability.

The retailer’s CISO needed to:

  1. Figure out what was on those endpoints.

  2. Ensuring that European customer information is protected for GDPR (mainly).

  3. Ensure that the corporate information is protected.
