    I'm on v11SP15.  We'd like to do regex/wildcard searches for SSNs, credit card numbers, etc.  It would actually be better to monitor it (instead of manually searching) going forward.

    What are the best tools Commvault has for these purposes?  (The GDPR Governance Apps look really promising!)

    Hello Sheree,

    The sensitivedata governance application would be the best way to search for PII and other sensitive data that your organization might be managing. Your local sales team should be able to help you learn more about our sensitive data governance application. I would also be able to help you if you want to learn more about it. There is more information available at our website at the following link.

    Oh, thanks!  That one didn't come up in an Internet search.  Is it related to the GDPR Governance Apps? (It seems CommVault things get renamed pretty frequently, LOL.)

    Our sensitive data governance solution focuses on GDPR as one of the key use cases but it is not limited to GDPR scenarios.

    This link is to a webinar that covers the topic also
