Bright Axis provides data discovery solutions customers using automated tools and scripts. We support operating systems such as Windows and UNIX to perform an exhaustive search of the file system at a reasonable cost. At the end of the discovery process, all locations of discovered credit card data are disclosed to the customer. This helps customers in knowing more about the storage of credit card data that they may or may not be aware of. Also, this process helps in the customer’s PCI Compliance.
