Information Classification Software

As a part of any ISO 27001 compliance initiative, it is necessary to classify all the information within the organisation with a classification. There are many different solutions for doing this, either simply adding a footer to a Word document or having stamps to mark documents with the appropriate level of classification. The problem with these solutions is that they are open to human frailty and error. But there is a solution to this problem, information classification software.

IT Governance and Boldon James

IT Governance, working as a reseller for Boldon James, can now offer their information classification software and associated tools.

Boldon James information classification software allows you to apply relevant classifications (visual & metadata labels/protective markings) to information (files) of many different types. These labels/markings can be used to enforce user policies, raise user awareness of security and orchestrate multiple on-demand security technologies such as encryption.

Watch this short video for an introduction to Boldon James classifier:


 

Below we give an overview of each module of the Boldon James software, all of which are available from IT Governance:

Email Classifier

Email is one of the most common tools in use within most organisations, so it should come as no surprise that it is a common source of information leakage, with most data loss through its use due to user negligence. Boldon James Email Classifier puts labelling at the heart of data loss prevention by giving users the option to apply relevant visual labels (classifications) to Microsoft Outlook email messages, which are embedded by Email Classifier into the email metadata.

Office Classifier

Many of the processes used to control the distribution of sensitive information were created in a paper-based world, as mentioned above, and are prone to human frailty and error. Updating them to cope with the increased risk of data loss presented by email and document management systems presents a significant challenge, which can be met with information classification software. Boldon James Office Classifier will help organisations address this issue by putting classification/labelling at the heart of data loss prevention by giving users the ability to apply relevant visual classifications/labels to documents, which are embedded by Office Classifier into the document metadata.

Office Classifier is available for Microsoft Office 2003, Microsoft Office 2007 and Microsoft Office 2010. The software works specifically within the following applications that form part of Micosoft Office: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Project and Visio.

File Classifier

File Classifier integrates with Windows Explorer, enabling you to apply metadata labels/classifications to any type of Windows file. File Classifier is accessed by right-clicking on a file and selecting the Classify option.

File Classifier either applies native metadata labels using document properties, in the same manner as Office Classifier, or uses a metadata location common to all Windows files.

File Classifier integrates with the same administration console that is found across the Classifier product range.

OWA Classifier

With more staff now working from home, more and more of them are accessing email via Web apps, such as the Microsoft Outlook Web App. But how can you apply the same information classification rules in this environment as you would do in an office setting? Boldon James OWA Classifier puts classification/labelling at the heart of data loss prevention by giving users the ability to apply relevant visual classifications/labels to Microsoft Outlook Web App email messages and to embed labels within the email metadata.

SharePoint Classifier

Microsoft SharePoint is now in use in many organisations for storing and sharing information and data. There are now large pools of confidential and restricted information on these systems that needs to be protected. Without the ability to ensure users are aware of their responsibilities when handling such sensitive material, there is an inevitable increase in the risk of data leakage, which is a challenge that can be met with information classification software.

Boldon James SharePoint Classifier puts classification/labelling at the heart of data loss prevention by giving users the ability to apply relevant classifications/labels to any file held in the document libraries of Microsoft SharePoint.

Mobile Filter

Power Classifier

If you have a historic library of information stored in a Windows file store, it can be a daunting task to undertake a classification/labelling project. But fear not, Boldon James Power Classifier puts classification labelling at the heart of data loss prevention by giving you the ability to apply relevant metadata classifications/labels to any file held in a Windows file store. Power Classifier bulk labels/classifies files.
