Danish Defence Deploys TITUS Message Classification to Classify Military Email

Solution delivers powerful information classification while enhancing retention, compliance and archiving

OTTAWA, ON – July 15, 2008 – TITUS Inc., the leading provider of email and document classification software today announced that the Danish Defence IT Agency, has deployed TITUS Message Classification to 15,000 users to force the classification of all email in Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Web App. The Kingdom of Denmark consists of Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands and the Danish Defence IT Agency is the central body that manages IT for the Danish Army, Navy, Air Force and Home Guard.

The Danish Defence has deployed the TITUS software to enhance their existing technology investments. The solution adds value to the Microsoft infrastructure by forcing users to consistently classify all email in compliance with national and international labeling policies. Additionally, Danish Defence needed the capability to label email in order to make data releasable to the Internet. The solution enables users to publish to the Internet from their workstations.

“Danish Defence continually assesses new information protection technology, and proven classification technologies offered by TITUS enable Danish Defence to force users to classify all email,” said Chief of Command, Danish Defence. “TITUS offers the best Commercial off the Shelf (COTS) solution for data classification and their ability to meet our specific requirements made the decision to choose TITUS an easy one.”

According to the SANS (SysAdmin, Audit, Network, Security) Institute, a leading computer security think-tank, without data classification, information protection decisions are being made every day at the discretion of security, system and database administrators. An information classification system helps to ensure that those decisions satisfy company information protection goals.

This is an outstanding, secure messaging solution.”
