Desktop software that enables employees to help prevent data loss from their organisation by determining the distribution, copying and storage properties of files of any type makes its world-wide debut today on stand J61 at InfoSecurity Europe 2011 in London.

TITUS Classification for Desktop classifies any file type with just a few mouse clicks in Windows Explorer. Enterprise data loss prevention (DLP) solutions can recognise the metadata associated with each level of classification and treat the file accordingly. For example, a DLP system might enforce corporate policy by preventing an .mp3, .pdf, or .xls file classified as confidential from being emailed outside the organisation, or copied onto a USB drive.

"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."

The variety 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 video and image files such as MP3 and JPEG, and files created by design and mapping programs such as AutoDesk AutoCAD. TITUS Classification for Desktop helps protect all of them against data loss.

“As technology continues to evolve, organisations 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. “With data classification, organisations are able to educate users on information handling, integrate with enterprise DLP solutions and achieve compliance with industry regulations.”
