• Egress Switch Email and Document Security Classifier helps organizations and end-users apply visual and system identifiers (meta-data) to Word, Excel and PowerPoint documents

All organizations hold and distribute some level of sensitive information in both structured and unstructured data formats.  Without having a detailed view of all data within the business it is very difficult to understand how to appropriately apply security measures to protect this content, and hence develop an effective data security strategy.

Being able to visually and programmatically identify and mark data with appropriate classification markings can significantly improve an organization’s ability to control data flow and provide data loss prevention (DLP).

  • Seamless integration of dynamically configurable classification labels in MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint providing email classification and document classification
  • Classification policies integrate into Switch Secure Email encryption policies to enforce and simplify the message encryption process
  • Fully configurable end-user experience including the ability to enforce classification for any new or existing documents
  • Header and footer classification information is fully customizable based on corporate requirements, including text and branding customization
  • Perform classification of email and Office documents at the desktop or email gateway
  • Assign dynamic policies based on user, group, or organization-wide
  • Maintain detailed auditing and tracking of information as it enters and leaves your organization
  • Integrate with existing DLP and content filtering tools
  • Combined with Egress Switch secure email and file encryption technology, use Switch Email and Document Classifier to educate employees, promote security awareness and change behavior
    • Force users to classify content at the point of creation, when updating existing documents, and when distributing it via email
    • Tailor classification policies to match existing Switch encryption policies and provide a simplified end-user experience
    • Force compliance with information assurance standards such as ISO27001 where ISO27001 data classification is required
    • Interact with users via customizable dialogs and prompts
  • Egress Switch Client and Gateway apps can automatically detect classified content and apply policy-driven encryption appropriate to the classification or protective marking
    • This integration simplifies end-user encryption and provides higher levels of DLP
    • In addition, automatic classification can be applied based on a pre-defined rule set matching keywords and regular expressions. 
  • Automatic classification and encryption policies can be applied using the following criteria:
    • Detection of keywords and meta data embedded within email message body and attachments including Word (.doc, .docx), Excel (.xls, .xlsx), PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx) and PDF
