Metalogix Sensitive Content Manager 2.2 - Administration Guide

Metalogix Sensitive Content Manager

Metalogix Sensitive Content Manager (SCM) provides a reliable, accurate and flexible solution for detecting sensitive information such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII), Protected Health Information (PHI) and Payment Card Industry (PCI)  in English, German, Spanish, Italian, French and Portuguese, within enterprise content management systems.

This guide contains instructions for the administration of Sensitive Content Manager.

Integration with Metalogix ControlPoint and Microsoft SharePoint

SCM can leverage the existing security, compliance and administration capabilities of Metalogix ControlPoint to enforce policies using the full range of Microsoft SharePoint's permissions management, auditing and user activity reporting. With on-demand scanning, administrators can flag specific libraries, sites, or site collections for content discovery, or use real-time content shield by analyzing files as they are created, modified, moved, or destroyed. The combination of SCM and Metalogix ControlPoint offers a powerful Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution that uses customizable and intelligent scanning subsystems to identify, track, and secure documents. This ensures a more robust level of information governance inside increasingly complex enterprise environments.

Integration with Metalogix Essentials

Essentials and SCM together allow a customer to selectively migrate file-share content based on the sensitive nature of the content after analysis with SCM.

SCM Architecture

Metalogix SCM uses a microservices architecture that is comprised of several services that can be deployed on a single server or distributed across several servers. These services work together to analyze documents using regular expressions and machine learning. The SCM components are described below:

SCM Databases

Each service has its own database which together form the SCM Databases and represent the central repository for the configuration, analysis results and operational metrics of the Metalogix SCM.

Service Bus

Metalogix SCM uses RabbitMQ as the service bus. It provides the intelligent message routing, event queuing and sequencing needed by SCM to analyze the files.

SCM Services (IIS)

·Admin Portal - The SCMAdminPortal service manages the SCM Administration Center.

·Admin Services - These are back-end services that feed information about other services to the SCM Administration Center.

oSCMAdminService is used for license management, monitoring the system health and other administrative operations of SCM.

oSCMAdminService-Analytics

oSCMAdminService-Notifications

oSCMAdminService-Profiles

oSCMAdminService-Scans

oSCMAdminService-Subquestions

·File Upload Service - When integrated with Metalogix ControlPoint, the SCMFileUploadService receives the requests to analyze one or more files. It stores these files and submits a request to the queue to analyze these files.

·Profile Service - A profile is a named collection of content search and analysis guidelines. Each profile is made up of sub-questions, weights and file thresholds. The SCMProfileService serves the profiles that are needed for content analysis.

·Result Service - When integrated with Metalogix ControlPoint, a REST API call requests the SCMResultsService to return the metrics and results of the files that were analyzed by the Analysis Service. Results are kept for a limited period.

·Subquestion Service - A sub-question is a search term used to identify a specific kind of sensitive content.  The SCMSubquestionService serves the entire collection of sub-questions available for use within profiles.

·Scan Service - The process of analyzing files in a file-share and the generated report is called a scan.  The SCMScanService allows you to submit, cancel or delete scans, and serves metadata about running scans and scan reports.

·Analytics Service - The SCMAnalyticsService collects and stores data about analysis throughput.  Collected data supports the dashboard experience and is only kept for a limited period.

·Notification Service - The SCMNotificationService provides live-updates for scan progress, health and notifications within the SCM Administration Center.

SCM Services (Windows)

·Document Routing Service - When files are uploaded for analysis, they are stored in a specific temporary folder on the SCM Server. The Metalogix SCM Document Routing Service inspects each file from the folder to check whether these files are single files or complex files like compressed files or emails with attachments. Since only single files can be analyzed, this service submits complex files to the Archive Extraction Service to extract individual files for analysis. You can analyze the following file types: Compressed files, Microsoft Office Files, Open Document Text, Portable Document Format, Rich Text Format, and Text Document.

·Archive Extraction Service - When complex files are submitted for analysis, the Metalogix SCM Extraction Service extracts individual files from the file set.

·Document Processing Service - When single files are ready for analysis the Metalogix SCM Document Processing Service extracts the content from the files.

·Analysis Service - The Metalogix SCM Analysis Service analyzes the content in each file using regular expressions and machine learning technology. Sensitive files are permanently deleted from the temporary folder when the analysis is completed.

·Crawler Service - The Metalogix SCM Crawler Service inspects the contents of a file-share and the sub-folder hierarchy for supported files that are submitted for analysis.

SCM Administration Center

The SCM Administration Center provides an overview of the scan results and lets administrators manage licenses, monitor the system health, and work with system logs to analyze the health of services with greater granularity.

b.Unsuccessful - indicates the number of files that could not be analyzed.

c.Skipped - the number of files that could not be submitted and were not processed any further. There could be several reasons why files are skipped. For example, files may be skipped because the file type is not supported, there is a problem reading the contents of the file, there is low disk space on the server, or the file upload service was unavailable.
