Understanding Spirion Processes

After Spirion has performed the scan, a few options become available to you if any confidential information was found within the files. These processes include Shred, Quarantine, and Ignore.

Spirion provides the following options for what action you want to take with the file(s):

ShredCompletely and permanently deletes the file(s) from your computer.

  • CAUTION: Once shredded, files/folders cannot be recovered.

Quarantine: Moves file(s) to a selected location. You can access this location at a later time to view the files, secure, or shred them.

Ignore: If you want to leave the file as it is, select Ignore. Once you have chosen to ignore a file or file location, Spirion will not scan this document or location again.
