A Global Media Company needed to leverage Data Governance products to discover who was accessing data, where and when.

We deployed a solution that attached metatags to files so administrators could scan network repositories and discover the location of sensitive information, and see how it was being handled.

A Global Pharmaceutical Company needed data classified so it could be protected using downstream technologies such as DLP and Data Governance.

We introduced a system that injected metadata tags into emails and documents to enable DLP to stop sensitive classified content from leaving the building and raise user awareness with clear visual markers on documents.

A Wealth Management Fund needed customer x-headers inserted into email properties so that their existing secure email solution could automatically intercept the message and deliver the content securely.

We implemented a Data Classification solution that enabled each confidential email to be stamped with a custom tag, to be scanned by a secure email system so that messages were encrypted before delivery to third parties when necessary.

Fortra’s Boldon James File Classifier provides easy classification of files and the automatic application of protective software using an intuitive classification system within the toolbar of Microsoft File Explorer.

Sometimes the application of your protective DLP shield can be a little too ad-hoc, impacted by elements such as personal opinion, human error and time pressure. Holes can leave opportunities for data to fall into an abyss, unprotected and irretrievable. Easy and fast classification of data makes marking data an unobtrusive part of the workflow that gives data a permanent protection that travels with it.


Once classifications are attached to files, third party software can be applied automatically to relevant files. Your important pieces of data will be protected without slowing down your workforce or adding unnecessary red tape whilst the all-user schedule for the work’s Christmas party and those other trivial files won’t be.

This comprehensive file classification systems was selected by our team of data-protection solution specialists because of the ease with which it seamlessly integrates user-driven classification into user’s workflow.
