Data classification tools

What is data classification?

Data classification tools let users categorise documents as they are created
and provides a fully automated classification system.

By classifying data you can implement policies to ensure the correct use of sensitive information
across all your company’s trusted data repositories whether on-premise or in the cloud.

The importance of classifying your data


Data Classification Software


Data classification is a key requirement for data privacy and regulatory compliance (GDPR, HIPAA, PCI for example) and for mitigating data security threats from outside and inside your organisation. However, categorising large amounts of sensitive data and confidential information, such as IP, across different applications and data silos is a major challenge. Plus, you cannot always rely on manual classification which is open to incorrect categorisation by data users through human error or lack of awareness.

Once you have identified the sensitive data you have across your business using Data Discovery it is an easy task to classify data so that you can keep track of its use automatically, set up security policies and identify data security breaches.
