Fortra’s Data Classification Suite for Outlook Web App (DCS for OWA)

Fortra’s DCS for Outlook Web App is a classification and policy enforcement tool that ensures all OWA emails and meeting requests are classified before they are sent.

Many organizations allow their employees to access email through Web browsers to offer a more flexible work environment. Microsoft Outlook Web App (OWA*) provides users with a familiar email and calendar experience across both Windows and Mac platforms. But while convenient for users, this can make organizations more vulnerable to data leakage.

Fortra’s Data Classification Suite (DCS) for OWA is a classification and policy enforcement tool that ensures all OWA emails and meeting requests are classified before they are sent. The solution brings the familiar features of DCS for Outlook to the web, including support for customizable labels and a simple, intuitive user interface that integrates into the regular OWA workflow. In addition to enforcing classification, our solution can also restrict the viewing and distribution of sensitive information over OWA, helping to prevent data loss.
