Identity Finder is now “Spirion”

The “Identity Finder” software now has a new name: Spirion.

Spirion (formerly Identity Finder) is a tool that helps find and mitigate the risks of confidential data that may be stored on a computer. The Spirion agent scans your local hard drives to find files with confidential data (e.g. SSNs, credit card numbers).

It works like anti-virus software except that Spirion will only identify and report, not eliminate, confidential data. You can then choose whether to delete the files or move them to a secure location like uFiles.

If you have any questions about Spirion, please contact the IT Office using our Request Support form.
