  • Locate and produce data from a variety of sources for regulatory compliance, litigation, or investigations.  
  • Pinpoint content that may put your company at risk of violating CCPA, GDPR, or other regulatory requirements.  
  • Discover sensitive information across the enterprise to ensure proper management of data.  
  • Locate relevant information for litigation or internal investigations, perform first-pass review, and alert custodians to their litigation hold responsibility.  

“With the addition of Sherpa, we are able to offer a unique combination of information governance capabilities to the market,” states Mark Johnson, Chief Executive Officer at Gimmal.

“Our feature-rich solution set, combined with deep subject matter expertise, sets us apart from any other information governance solution provider today.”
