TITUS and Proofpoint Partner to Deliver Interoperable Email Classification, Email Security and DLP Solutions to Enterprise and Government Customers Worldwide


COTS interoperability for customers of TITUS email and document classification solutions with Proofpoint’s SaaS and on-premises email security, DLP and email archiving solutions

London, UK (Infosecurity Europe Booths J30 and L90) — April 27, 2010 — Today at Infosecurity Europe, TITUS, a leading provider of email and document classification software, and Proofpoint, the leading provider of unified email security, archiving and data loss prevention solutions announced a technology and go-to-market partnership to enable commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) interoperability between TITUS email and document classification solutions and Proofpoint’s SaaS and on-premises email security, data loss prevention and email archiving solutions.

TITUS Message Classification and Document Classification products are widely used by government, military and commercial organizations to classify and protectively mark Microsoft Outlook messages and Office documents. Explicit visual labels and corresponding metadata properties that are applied to email messages and their attachments by TITUS solutions can automatically trigger a wide variety of policy enforcement, data loss prevention, encryption and archiving policies applied by Proofpoint solutions.

For example, using Proofpoint ENTERPRISE™ Privacy, protectively marked emails and documents can be automatically encrypted, blocked or quarantined for further review before transmission via email, depending upon what labels have been applied. Similarly, different data retention periods can be enforced based on the classification of a message or its attachments (using Proofpoint ARCHIVE™).

Applications include compliance with a wide variety of regulations including the UK’s GPMS (Government Protective Marking Scheme) and Data Protection Act, the Australian E-Protective Marking standard, ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations), HIPAA and other healthcare privacy rules and GLBA, PCI-DSS and other financial data privacy regulations.

“The interoperability between our classification products and Proofpoint’s email security and compliance systems offers enterprises and government organizations a complete, easy-to-deploy solution for ensuring compliance with data privacy regulations and protecting all types of personally identifiable information (PII) in email,” said Blair Canavan, Vice President Business Development at Titus.

“Globally, we’re seeing a huge increase in demand for solutions that allow organizations of all types to better handle and protect sensitive information,” said Peter Galvin, chief marketing officer for Proofpoint, Inc. “Customers that need to guard against leaks or theft of intellectual property, comply with an ever-increasing number of international data privacy rules and enforce best practices for preventing data loss will benefit from the ‘defense-in-depth’ approach offered by TITUS and Proofpoint.”
