TITUS Classification for Desktop: Classify and Protect Any File Type

Organizations can now quickly classify PDFs, audio and video image files and more


London, UK — InfoSecurity Europe 2011 (Stand J61) – April 19, 2011 TITUS , a leading provider of security and compliance solutions for email and documents, today announced the launch of TITUS Classification for Desktop, a product which allows users to classify any file type through Microsoft Windows Explorer.

The wide variety of file types has often been a challenge when it comes to classification. The number of file types used within government, military and commercial enterprises is quickly growing. In addition to Microsoft Office®, today’s workplaces use Adobe PDF®, OpenOffice®, audio and video/ image files such as MP3 and JPEG, and design and mapping programs such as AutoDesk AutoCAD. Organizations need to be able to protect against potential data loss that can occur when data is moved from the desktop to storage media such as USB drives.

"Data is found in so many forms, so securing just email or documents simply is not enough," explained Philippe Laflandre, Chair of Transglobal Secure Collaboration Program (TSCP) and head of Eads Corporate Trust Center. "True security only comes from being able to lock down data in all of its forms. The ability to classify various types of data answers a very real business problem."

With TITUS Classification for Desktop, organizations are able to classify any file type with just a few mouse clicks in Windows Explorer. This latest solution from TITUS is designed to complement the other offerings in the TITUS Classification family and protects organizations from inadvertent data loss. With data classification, organizations are able to educate users on information handling, integrate with enterprise Data Loss Prevention solutions and achieve compliance with industry regulations.

“As technology continues to evolve, organizations are faced with the reality that data is contained in countless different file types, and that data is not necessarily confined to the desktop,” said Tim Upton, President and CEO, TITUS. “TITUS Classification for Desktop is the result of our continued commitment to meeting our customers’ needs and has been developed in close collaboration with our existing customers. We are confident that organizations will see numerous benefits from extending security to multiple file types on the desktop.”
