Toronto, Canada —SC Congress Canada 2012 (Booth 408) – May 8, 2012 TITUS data security and governance solutions have recently been selected by a number of Canadian federal government departments. Treasury Board of Canada, Canadian Department of Finance, Public Safety Canada, Privy Council Office, and FINTRAC (Financial Transactions Reports Analysis Centre of Canada) have purchased and are in the process of deploying TITUS classification solutions to identify and protect sensitive information as part of the requirements of the Government Security Policy and Cyber Security Strategy.

TITUS solutions involve end users in the overall data loss protection strategy. Sensitive information is identified and protected and visual labels are used to raise security awareness throughout the government.

Most recently, the following Canadian government agencies have selected TITUS Classification to identify and protect data for improved national security:

“In the past few years, we have seen several governments, including the Australian and UK governments, mandate classification and protective marking as part of their overall security strategy. With these recent wins, we now see the Canadian government moving in the same direction to protect important information,” said Tim Upton, Founder, President and CEO of TITUS. “These deals are significant for us as they show the commitment our government has made to information protection and how they view TITUS solutions as a key component of their information protection plans.”

TITUS Message Classification is an easy-to-use email security solution that ensures every Microsoft Outlook email is classified and protectively marked before it is sent.
