Dark Data

Bring your deepest, darkest data to light
with the SHI Dark Data Assessment!

Don't leave your data in the dark!

With SHI’s complimentary Dark Data Assessment, our system engineers uncover dark data in your organization using the Veritas Data Insight tool and offer best practice solutions to remedy the situation. All of this is done in just three simple steps:

  1. Configure – We install and configure Veritas Data Insight onto the server of your choice.
  2. Scan – We run scans using the agentless, minimally intrusive Veritas Data Insight tool.
  3. Report – We produce and deliver actionable, all-encompassing reports and findings.


  • Improve Data Management – Discover stale data and identify redundant and trivial data
  • Protect Data from Risk – Monitor data usage and discover open shares
  • Achieve Compliance – Identify data owners and classify data for retention and retrieval

What You Get

Following the scan, you will receive reports highlighting:

  • Data aging
  • Consumption by file type
