Built-in Patterns

Egnyte Protect can look for several patterns of sensitive information, such as Social Security Numbers, credit card numbers, etc. These built-in patterns are grouped together for your convenience in information categories such as Personally Identifiable Information (PII) or Banking Information. You can select any of these information categories in your custom policy so that a file containing any of the included patterns will be matched with your policy.
