TITUS Classification Suite
TITUS Classification Suite really covers the bases. While it is not uncommon to see Outlook and Office applications covered, Outlook Web Access (OWA) and mobile devices are not so common. The trouble is that of the entire bunch these two product groups probably are the most vulnerable to data leakage.
Documents are classified in the familiar way of selecting the appropriate marking from the Word (or other Office application) tool bar. The classification metadata become part of the document's other metadata and the document is protected from changes based on policy.
The suite works with Active Directory and also with third-party products, such as DLP. Email gets the same treatment, plus coloured labels that immediately call the reader's attention to the classification. As one would expect, the email message will assume the classification of an attached document if it is higher than the email's.
Policies can dictate what documents must be classified, based on business drivers. So one department may be required to classify all of the documents and email that originate within it while another department might have the option of not classifying.
We especially liked the two mobile device apps - one for Android and one for iOS. These cover email and documents moving into and out of the device. The mobile apps cover such unique areas as wireless printing permission and sharing options.
The bottom line here is that this is a very comprehensive suite of products that covers Microsoft and mobile devices extremely well and in a well-integrated infrastructure. The TITUS ecosystem includes integration with some of the top names in the information security market. Well worth a look.
