The first line of defense in protecting your sensitive data

You can’t protect your data when people and corporate systems don’t know enough about the contents of files to handle them properly.

The most effective way to provide that information is to ensure you have a robust classification solution in place.

By identifying the business value of unstructured data, organizations can make intelligent, deliberate decisions on how to handle their documents.

The importance of information security

It’s become an unquestioned business imperative to protect data of individuals, customers, employees, along with internal sensitive information. GDPR and other regulatory requirements have established standards based on the expectations people have for how their data is handled.

We used to be concerned about the corporate perimeter, but that perimeter has shrunk to the encompass the data itself. And organizations that aren’t evolving risk their reputation and their very existence.

Data security starts with context

Unstructured data – the documents and emails we work with every day – are a smorgasbord of juicy information just waiting to be used for good. Or bad, depending on who has access.

Classifying those documents gives them the context required for security policies to kick in and trigger the right level of protection, ensuring organizational data has the right protection applied.

Enhance security with machine learning

Lately, data security vendors are abuzz with the advantages machine learning adds to the security ecosystem. Imagine creating documents, saving them and knowing the data is accurately and consistently classified and the appropriate protection is applied seamlessly – all within an automated workflow, enhanced by machine learning.

Machine learning brings an intelligent level of protection to organizations so data is protected, and time is saved on the front and back ends of the process.

Protect your data, protect your organization

You can only adequately protect the data you know you have.

That’s why data classification matters.

It provides context for reporting, triggering the right policies at the right time to keep your organization from facing the ultimate risk to trust: a data breach.
