In today’s collaborative work environments, documents are regularly shared among employees, customers, and partners. This presents a challenge to organizations that must protect information assets while promoting information sharing. The critical first step in solving this challenge is to classify documents at the time of creation, allowing the organization to identify the information’s value, and manage the data accordingly.
Fortra’s Data Classification Suite for Microsoft Office
Fortra’s Data Classification for Microsoft Office is a security and governance solution that ensures all Microsoft Office documents are classified before they can be saved, printed, or sent via email. Labels are fully customizable to meet internal and regulatory marking standards and can be used to indicate any type of information, such as data sensitivity (Public, Confidential) and department (HR, Finance). Flexible classification options enable user-driven, system-suggested, or automatic application of the classification based on the content, author, and other document attributes.
By enabling the classification of documents upon creation, organizations can add structure and context to the vast number of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents that are created and shared every day. DCS for Microsoft Office easily integrates into existing IT environments and enhances other infrastructure solutions, providing an excellent ROI and immediate compliance and information protection impact.
