Keep information in order with vScope

The key to GDPR compliance is keeping your information in order to be able to answer quite basic but yet very important questions, such as what data do we have, where is it stored, and who can access it. However, far too many organizations are lacking visibility and understanding of what their IT really looks like. This makes it harder to understand the current situation, perform gap analysis and set the scope for an action plan for GDPR compliance. Not having access to an accurate documentation of the IT will also impose complications to demonstrate that your organization meet the GDPR requirements.

Let us present vScope. Automatic IT inventory that maps and visualizes IT assets in an intuitive and flexible way. With vScope your organization will benefit from accurate information that is easy to access and share, helping you to better ensure GDPR compliance.

About GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is intended to strengthen the protection and privacy of personal data. With the introduction of GDPR, companies will be more or less forced to take a more careful approach when handling and processing personal data. To solve this challenge, organizations not only need to align the collection of data with the GDPR requirements but also the underlying systems and infrastructure that contains sensitive data.
