Exonar Core is the data mapping ‘black box’ that enables each of the products in our portfolio
Exonar exists to power and protect your organisation and the people it serves.
Its enabling technology is the Core, a physical or virtual appliance located securely in your data centre. Crawling, indexing and understanding both your structured and unstructured information at scale, it allows you to use what’s valuable and govern what’s sensitive.
What is Exonar Core?
Crawling and indexing every system, file share and cloud data repository, Exonar Core discovers information at scale in clever ways that our competitors can’t or don’t do.
Exonar Core reads document properties and its content, reporting back on where your personally identifiable information (PII), sensitive and confidential data is located.
Applying Exonar’s products, Reveal, Resolve and Relate on top of Exonar Core, you can take appropriate action to acquire deep insights, organise your data and mitigate risk.
How does Exonar Core work?
Exonar Core crawls and processes hundreds of millions of documents across structured and unstructured data repositories. With a powerful and user-friendly search interface, flexible schema and fast response times, now you can say with confidence that you know what you’ve got and where it’s stored in your data estate.
Adds value to other technologies along the way
Plug Exonar into complementary technologies such as Data Loss Prevention, Document Encryption, Access Control, Content Management and many others. The Exonar index adds value further to these enforcement technologies, enabling you to take control over what happens to your data day-to-day.
Flags up PII
Creating an index of a file’s metadata properties and content, Exonar uses pattern matching and machine learning to identify all PII, sensitive, and confidential data. When you run new searches, for example to respond to a Subject Access Request, the results show instantly.
Wraps it in tight security
With data growing exponentially, our architecture is built with scalability in mind. Able to handle increasing volumes of information across vastly different data sources in a variety of formats, Exonar helps you retain your security standards as you scale from gigabytes to petabytes.
Distils the knowledge locked within
An intelligent platform backed by machine learning, Exonar automates many manual processes. By continuously indexing your data estate, your employees and other systems can query the data with instant results, enabling better decision making.
What’s different about Exonar Core ?
1. The power of the index to discover data
Exonar builds a comprehensive index of billions of items of information and data.
Other privacy and data discovery technologies take a scanning approach, which is ineffective and hugely time consuming. Like reading a book cover to cover.
Exonar unlocks the power of the index to search instantly without the need to re-scan every time.
On average, an organisation’s data contains…

2. Supercharging your information
Once indexed, information is enriched further with Intelligent Data Classification:
Natural language processing – Understanding and extracting the context of words, such as names, ethnicity and places.
Pattern matching – Resolves number and text patterns to identify information like credit card numbers, government IDs, or phone numbers.
Machine learning – Identifies or resolves additional contexts such as topics and types of document such as contracts or CVs.
3. Massive scalability
Exonar Core is able to ingest data at speed and on a massive scale.
It can interrogate and analyse content-rich data in bulk at an individual document level, in near-real-time.
Exonar Core is delivered on a clustered, resilient software and hardware platform.
It scales from around 100,000 up to billions of files, emails or database rows.
With a scalable and open architecture, performance is assured at PBs of data.
The API allows third party integrations for DLP, business analytics, document classification and workflow engines.
