Om arbetsgivaren

Organizations of all sizes generate and accumulate large volumes of unstructured data. In most cases, the organization knows very little about the value of this data, or the risk that it represents. A strengthening regulatory environment, media and consumer focus on data gathering practices at major corporations, high-profile data loss/breach incidents - many factors are driving an accelerating awareness of the need for pro-active data management.

Northern develops and implements (directly or via partners) a software-based solution which enables organizations to manage their unstructured data. Northern has a proven track record in enabling large organizations to implement/change their working practices to ensure transparency and continued maintenance of their unstructured data footprints. Value is realized in the form of efficiency improvements and, most importantly, reduced risk exposure.

Northern is headquartered in Stockholm (Sweden) and operates in North America, Europe, and Japan.
