Share Article

QUADROtech, who are setting the pace in innovative migration solutions enabling businesses to non-disruptively migrate data, announced the immediate availability of the next generation of FlightDeck - the intelligent solution for the identification, migration and elimination of PST files.

FlightDeck 3.4 sets the bar for next-generation technology in the PST collection market with the introduction of 3 key new features, including a new, unique 6-factor owner identification analysis. QUADROtech’s inspection engine performs a level of analysis unprecedented in the industry.

With the increase in regulations and compliance issues, organizations are beginning to take note of the dangers of offline, unmonitored data in personal storage (PST files). These files, which are created by users, are unmanaged data kept on user devices that represent a huge data leakage risk. Most organizations have very little insight into where PSTs are created, where the files are kept, and how much data is in those files. For example, a confidential employee salary listing could be stored in a PST file – but how does an organization determine who owns that file, where that file is and who should have access to it? QUADROtech’s Owner identification analysis enables an organization to quickly identify the users of files that might contain sensitive financial data, and ensure those files are managed in accordance with Information Governance regulations.

“With the increase in the number of customers asking for help to eradicate their PSTs FlightDeck 3.4 takes our solution to the next level. We wanted to give our customers a deeper level of data interrogation and management, something previously unseen in this industry. For example, our Collect Profile technology will allow us to assist customers with more complex environments, such as oil rigs – and with the increase in the number of customers moving to Office 365, our unique 6-factor Owner Analysis (6OA) technology allows us to significantly speed up the identification of distributed PST data – speeding Office 365 enablement,” said Thomas Madsen, Product Owner.

FlightDeck 3.4 includes the following new features:

  • 6-Factor Owner Analysis (6OA) – a unique, 6-factor analysis of each PST file to confidently identify the owner at a level previously unprecedented in the industry. Based on deep analytical algorithms, it significantly reduces administrator effort required for manually matching files and assures data ends up in the right mailbox.
  • CollectProfile Technology – Uniquely set different policies for users based on local environment, regional restrictions, platform, local language, regulatory requirements and infrastructure constraints. This includes specifying user interaction text, bandwidth profile and collection configuration.
  • Active Bandwidth Management – ensuring distributed organizations with complex network setups and WAN infrastructure can be migrated without impacting on other critical network services. Customers can decide how to schedule a PST collection depending on their localized bandwidth needs.

“We wanted to empower organizations with further control over their PST file project,” continued Madsen. “PST files are a huge pain to any IT Department, and our latest feature set will enable the customer to chose how to handle their migration in terms of bandwidth allocation, as well as provide the security and reassurance that an important file from their CEO won’t end up with another employee. Finally, it will also enable them to define how different environmental profiles are handled, down to the individual device or regional level. This feature is ideal for managing PST collections from vastly remote locations such as oil rigs.“

With the release of FlightDeck 3.4, QUADROtech are continuing to drive down the complexity in this industry, giving control back to the users and continuing to innovate to simplify the PST elimination process.
