Data Classification

Explore how our best-of-breed data classification solutions helps you categorise, label and protect data. Advanced data classification fuses categorisation with labelling to deliver a powerful data protection and governance punch. Enabling organisations to better manage and control their data, streamline operational performance and improve return on technology investment.

Categorise, Label and Protect your data.

Data classification allows your users to assign a visual label to the data they create, so that informed decisions can be taken about how it is managed, protected and shared, both within and outside of your organisation.

Boldon James Classifier turns that visual label into metadata, which can be used to both enforce your company’s security policies and drive other technologies, such as data loss prevention, information rights management and archiving solutions.

The result is streamlined business processes with data security at the core, reducing risk and improving security culture

Data Categorisation

Big data, data governance and data management – these are everyday challenges for all organisations today. Data categorisation with Boldon James Classifier helps you identify the context as well as content of data, and critically extends classification beyond the security domain to ensure you a holistic view of data.

Security Labelling

Sensitive data is important to identify, to ensure the right people have access to the right data. However, sensitivity is just one dimension of data classification. In order to get the full potential from data classification, and value from your data, you need to combine categorisation with security labelling. Boldon James has the unique tools to show you how.
