Including the End User in Data Classification and Protection

Digital Guardian incorporates the full range of classification from fully automated to fully manual. User classification empowers data owners to self classify information based on business requirements.






Given the growing volume of data that you need to protect, understanding it dramatically simplifies your job by enabling you to focus on the data that matters. While automated classification provides a strong foundation, adding user input provides important additional context for the most accurate data visibility and organization.


Understanding where and how sensitive data is used drives more informed security decisions. Digital Guardian’s DLP leverages data classification to accurately enforce data protection policies. Adding user-based classification powered by Boldon James augments the context and content based classification embedded in the Digital Guardian platform.
