The need to protect data is one of the most critical issues organizations are facing today. Leveraging modern technology is essential in ensuring that all data is protected. PII Protection for Confluence adds data loss prevention features to your Confluence Cloud instance, allowing you to find PII, sensitive data such as passwords, API keys, and other credentials as well as classifying pages with customizable classification levels.

Scan your Confluence spaces for various kinds of sensitive data and PII

Data loss prevention is an important and necessary step for any organization. In a time where data breaches are on the rise and may cause immense financial, reputational, and legal damage, it is essential that organizations take measures to protect sensitive data. With PII Protection for Confluence, they can do just that.

The app adds data loss prevention features to your Confluence Cloud instance and offers powerful detection of personal identifiable information (PII), passwords, API keys, and other credentials. With more than a dozen checks already supported, PII Protection for Confluence automatically searches for sensitive data.

To do this, PII Protection for Confluence just needs to know what to look for. And it’s pretty easy to just tell the app: simply create check groups and assign them to a space – and off you go.
Check groups help organize multiple checks associated with the same class. For instance, you might want to look out for credentials through a custom check group that can contain checks such as passwords, credentials, and API keys. And the best is yet to come: checks are customizable by space.

Everything that is found with the checks is listed on a findings page, indicating the type, place, page title, and date. There, admins can open the page in question directly and take appropriate action. Also, every time a page is updated or a new one is created, the app will scan the page for any of the configured data types.

This way you can identify, monitor, and protect against any data leaks.
