Fortra Data Classification Reporting Server

Fortra Data Classification Reporting Server gives you insight into how your organization is using data classification, including where sensitive information is being stored and sent


Data classification delivers many benefits, but it’s important that you

can measure that success and demonstrate the value to the executives and compliance and governance teams within your organization. Utilizing reporting capabilities enables you to keep track of what users are doing with data and where data is stored, as well as making sure organizational policies and compliance regulations are being met. As information security becomes more people-focused, the need to ‘Trust but Verify’ user behavior is critical.

The Fortra Data Classification Reporting Server is a web-based application providing a centralized reporting and dashboarding solution. It enables organizations to provide their end users with the ability to access, design, and manage dashboards and reports effectively, while monitoring data classification activities. Fortra Reporting Server demonstrates the value your organization is gaining from your data classification solution, alongside improvements in security awareness, data loss, and data governance.

How Fortra Data Classification Reporting Server Works

When key events happen, i.e. a document is created or sent, events are generated by the classification software and consolidated into the reporting database. There are numerous events and examples of these events include, but are not limited to:

  • A user sends an email with a selected label value
  • A user saves a document with a selected label value
  • A user saves a document, or sends an email, without selecting a label value
  • A user continues to send an email message that contains a policy violation after reviewing warning
  • A downgrade or upgrade of a classification level was prevented or allowed
  • The usage of a classification application on identified computers

The database can be interrogated by the reporting server, which helps organizations understand the value they are getting from Fortra's Data Classification software such as:

  • Are users classifying as expected?
  • Is sensitive data being stored, and sent, to the right locations?
  • Are users downgrading and upgrading appropriately?
  • Are users being educated about data security?
