Data classification

Data classification is the first, most important and most difficult step when implementing Data Leakage Prevention (DLP).

DLP isn’t difficult – there is a lot of software available to do the job. The difficult part is getting the software to distinguish between sensitive data and non-sensitive data. This is where good data classification makes all the difference.

SpotIT can ensure that:

  • All data is classified (not only office documents, but also pictures, PDFs, CAD/CAM drawings, etc.)
  • Data isn't just classified according to visual markings, but also by tags in the metadata
  • Users never have to use more than 3 mouse clicks on data classification
