Data Classification Software Solutions An essential step in your sensitive data protection strategy View Data Sheet Understanding your data accurately is the foundation of your sensitive data protection strategy and helps you determine where to apply your data security controls. But once you understand your data, you need to properly classify it. Without data classification, an organization treats all data as if it were the same: You can’t know the level of importance of any data because it hasn’t been properly classified. Failing to perform classification of data increases the risk of sensitive data being compromised across the data security lifecycle. It also increases the possibility that you could be placing security controls on data that isn’t in fact sensitive. Data classification solutions are not always simple to implement, even for information security experts. Attempting to change user behavior can tempt anyone to postpone it indefinitely. Spirion Data Platform’s automated persistent data classification software simplifies what until now has been a costly and resource-intensive exercise. Perform Data Classification Easily Spirion’s easy-to-use, wizard-driven interface helps you perform data classification quickly. With a few clicks, you can create rules to classify data based on sensitivity. Data remediation can be performed automatically according to your data security workflow process. Results are presented in intuitive reports and dashboards—and you can implement security controls directly from a centralized management console. Automated Persistent Data Classification Spirion revolutionizes security classification through automation built on its unparalleled accuracy. Data classification information is visible and persistent across your organization and stays with files even when they’re renamed or moved to a different location. With automated persistent data classification tools, you can promote a sensitive data protection culture that helps reduce data loss. Implement User-Driven Security Classification Empower employees to add data categorization based on policies and alert them to the sensitivity of their data. Employees can easily classify data through intuitive add-ons for their most widely used applications, such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Acrobat and Windows Explorer. Email classification provides them with the ability to get visual notification on outbound messages and attachments, and tag or classify an email before they send it, which helps your organization increase email data security. Accurately discovering and classifying data-at-rest is essential to preventing a costly and reputation-damaging data breach. Spirion helps you easily implement a structured, automated classification program to promote a safe data culture in your organization.
