This week, the team from TITUS headed to San Francisco for BoxWorks 15. As a first-time sponsor of the event, we weren’t sure what to expect, but we headed out prepared to grab some attention…
We at Netskope are excited about our partnership with TITUS and the many things we are doing together to help our customers safely enable cloud while also classifying and protecting sensitive data. One important thing we’ve done is collaborate on a best practice for classifying, e-discovering, and securing private, regulated, and other confidential business content en route to or at rest in cloud services with a recommended deployment.

I love the Gartner Hype Cycle, it’s one of my favorite things about working in the software industry. For anyone who hasn’t seen a Gartner Hype Cycle it looks like this:
Now I’ve never seen any statistical proof that new technologies progress from a “Innovation Trigger” through the “Peak of Inflated Expectations” and the “Trough of Disillusionment” before climbing the “Slope of Enlightenment’ and arriving at the “Plateau of Productivity”. But if you’ve been around a while, and seen technologies come and go, it seems true. Stephen Colbert might claim it has “truthiness”. It’s a lot like that old joke about the 7 stages of a software project:
The value of intellectual property was $329 billion worldwide in 2013, accounting for 1.5% of the $22.2 trillion of the financial flows tracked by the World Trade Organization. In the United States, the $128 billion in intellectual property (royalty and licensing income) generated by US companies accounted for 5.6% of the $2.28 trillion in US exports, making intellectual property revenues second only to food and agriculture exports1. Moreover, given that organizations worldwide lose five percent of their revenue to fraud2, much of it attributable to the theft of intellectual property, protection of this content must be a top priority for any organization.
As mid- to large-sized organizations transition away from a fleet of corporate-owned BlackBerry devices towards a mixed environment of iOS and Android, the need for a reliable Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution becomes essential. In bring-your-own-device (BYOD) environments in particular, an all-encompassing EMM solution is vital to ensuring that enterprise data that is stored and accessed from a mobile device is properly secured. Over the past several months, TITUS has been working to ensure that, given this increased importance of EMM solutions, our mobile apps work seamlessly with solutions such as AirWatch.
Ask yourself a question: does my <insert product name here> have out-of-the-box reports? If you answered “YES,” then surely you have all of the information that you need at your fingertips to effectively answer all of your business related questions.
What was that? The provided reports still leave you with many unanswered questions? A giant spreadsheet view of the log data, with some “Excel-esque” filtering doesn’t address all of your needs? Summary pie charts are leaving you hungry for more detail?
It’s time to start getting serious about Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) and the implementation of a solution that ensures compliance. It is expected that the 32 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 2002 will be completed in the November-December 2015 time frame. With the rules and markings in place, the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) will release the official Marking Handbook to kick off the phased implementation process.
TITUS Classification software can help any department easily comply with these regulations. By using the TITUS classification and marking solution, organizations can enhance their overall security program and realize the following benefits:

Being born in the 90’s I am “classified” as a millennial, part of “Generation Y” and fully immersed in the world of technology. The majority of people born after 1990 have grown up with computers and the internet. Most of our online experiences started with the reward of being able to play Neopets or Pokémon on our parents’ work computers, and have evolved into devoting hours every day to YouTube, Twitter and Facebook. I am well versed in the art of quickly replying to a text while browsing through multiple websites and watching TV. That being said, sometimes my multitasking leads to mistakes; there have been a fair number of times when I have accidentally sent the wrong information to the wrong people.
Wouldn’t it be great to say there is one product, from one vendor, that can protect all of your data? The reality, however, is that you need a security ecosystem and framework to protect your most valuable data assets. Forrester Research Inc. has developed a Data Security And Privacy Playbook which helps organizations build the framework they need to protect sensitive information. Read the rest of this entry »
For the past 3 years I have been bouncing between four operating systems on four different devices: my iPhone (iOS), my Nexus tablet (Android) my home PC (Windows 7) and my work PC (Windows 8.1). Today, with the launch of Windows 10, I dare to hope that this user interface nightmare is coming to an end. The device will finally become secondary to continuity, usability and productivity. As Microsoft themselves say: “We believe your experiences should be mobile – not just your devices. Technology should be out of the way and your apps, services and content should move with you across devices, seamlessly and easily.”1 So, how does TITUS fit into the Windows 10 world?
