WASHINGTON (PRWEB) May 05, 2020
Active Navigation, the data privacy and governance software company, today announced it has signed a distribution agreement with immixGroup, an Arrow Electronics company and leading value-added IT distributor. The agreement will provide federal customers access to various procurement vehicles for Active Navigation’s solutions.
Directives from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), such as M-19-21 and the 2020 Federal Data Strategy Action Plan, are changing the way federal agencies manage their data. As the government mandates public sector IT modernization, federal agencies must obtain innovative tools to drive data governance strategies, which includes minimizing personally identifiable information exposure and mitigating the risk posed by data breaches.
Federal agencies, across all branches, including the United States Marine Corps, have utilized Active Navigation’s software, Discovery Center, to help them reduce their data surface footprint, prepare for cloud migration and categorize their data to deliver mission outcomes. As a proven market-leading file analysis software, Discovery Center maps and inventories data across file shares, SharePoint, Exchange, Office 365 and other connected repositories to identify sensitive information, categorize documents, quarantine outdated or unnecessary records and more.
“Through our relationship with immixGroup and leveraging their broad contract portfolio, including the GSA Schedule, Active Navigation makes it easier for agencies to achieve visibility into their data estate, take control of their data and ensure compliance with government regulations,” said Peter Baumann, Active Navigation’s Chief Executive Officer.
