Add Accuracy To The Data Protection Tools You Already Use

Files classified with DCS gain persistent, granular, rich metadata that better informs downstream defense systems like DLP, CASB, and DRM to reduce false positives and unlock the business value of data while integrations with leading encryption vendors take the guesswork out of rights management.
