Know Your Data in MongoDB

Scan, map, and inventory sensitive data at scale in MongoDB

How MongoDB and BigID Work Together

BigID automatically finds, identifies, and classifies personal and sensitive data stored in MongoDB: a highly scalable, flexible, schema-less database popular for its rich querying performance, auto-sharding capability, exceptional user support, and fast in-place updates — great for frequent-update use cases.

BigID leverages an agentless connector to quickly discover, classify, and manage data stored in MongoDB. The scan gives you configuration and timeout options so you can minimize resources and storage for fast, efficient, and reliable data discovery.

Benefits of MongoDB


Simple and Scalable

Simple to set up, install, and use. Scales and replicates easily, requiring no complex joins or mappings.



Goes to work straight out of the box, requiring no design time. The only schema is the code you write.


Powerful Storage

Uses JSON format to store data, making array and object storage straightforward.



Stores objects and files within internal memory for quicker access to data. Speeds up performance with in-place updates.


Dynamic Querying

Can index on any attribute. Contains a document query language simpler than SQL. Enables dynamic querying and supports rich queries.



Easily distributes large data sets across multiple machines using a technique known as auto-sharding, saving you time and resources.
