Achieving compliance across a wealth of new international data privacy laws and regulations is the benchmark for effective cybersecurity. With remote working here to stay, there has never been a more important time to take data protection seriously.

Data classification enables you to identify and prioritize the data you need to protect, including critical unstructured data such as intellectual property. When data is effectively classified, users and the other layers of security that support them gain certainty over how data should be handled. Grey areas are reduced, and mistakes are less easily made or eradicated, especially when users are supported by automatically applied policies based on the data’s classification status.

The level of protection data classification provides is particularly important when dealing with the supply chain and third-party suppliers. Breaches originating in third parties are common and costly – an IBM study found that 19% of breaches within organizations occurred because of a compromise at a business partner.

Our classification solutions apply both visual labels and metadata, which can be used to both enforce your organization’s security policies, as well as seamlessly integrate with a range of best-of-breed security technology, such as data loss prevention, digital rights management, and encryption to name a few – ensuring downstream protection of data.

Fortra™’s data classification solutions offer essential management and control of your data to ensure compliance and reduce insider threat. We provide best-of-breed classification solutions to customers within banking and finance, healthcare, engineering and manufacturing, government, military and defense – all of whom trust us as the best solution to keep their sensitive data safe and protected.
