Las Vegas, NV —McAfee Technical Forum 2012 – July 09, 2012 — TITUS, the leading provider of enterprise data security and governance solutions, is pleased to announce that their entire line of classification solutions have achieved 'McAfee Compatible' status.
TITUS Message Classification, TITUS Classification for Microsoft Office, and TITUS Classification for Desktop have all been certified as McAfee Compatible, and can be deployed through the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) v. 4.6. Administrators can use ePO to deploy, update and monitor classification activity, as well as generate reports and dashboards on usage, policy violations and/or warnings.
The TITUS Classification family of products classify, label, and protectively mark emails, Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents, as well as other file types (i.e. PDF, audio files, video files) on the Windows desktop. By consistently applying user-driven TITUS labels and corresponding metadata to these files, TITUS classification solutions allow McAfee host and network-based DLP to read and apply intelligent data protection and enforcement policies at both the desktop and network.
"Most companies fail in achieving DLP success because they don't define the necessary process and policies before their deployment. DLP tools are not 'automagical'. They can't find data if they don't know what to look for," said John Kindervag, Principal Analyst with Forrester Research Inc., in his report, 'Rethinking DLP' (January 2012). "Security professionals must train DLP tools by defining policies, but before you can define policies, you have to properly inventory and classify your sensitive information."
