Reports

You can generate reports that provide a summary of scan results and the action taken to secure these match locations.

You can generate the following reports:

Reading the Reports describes the components found in the reports.

The reports are available as the following file formats:

  • PDF
    • A4 size
    • Letter size

  • HTML
  • XML
  • Plain text
  • CSV
"Scanned Bytes"

The "Scanned Bytes" column displayed in reports may not match the physical size of data scanned on the Target. Files and locations on the Target are processed to extract meaningful data. This data is then scanned for sensitive information. Because only extracted data is scanned, the amount of "Scanned Bytes" may be different from the physical size of files and locations on the Target.

  • For compressed files and locations, the data is decompressed before scanning it for sensitive data, increasing the amount of "Scanned Bytes" for the file.
  • For XML files, XML tags are stripped from the file before its contents are scanned for sensitive data, reducing the amount of "Scanned Bytes" for the file.
