DATA IN USE
Organisations are experiencing a dramatic increase in the quantity of unstructured data that is being created and shared by their employees. With Microsoft Office© being the primary productivity tool used in creating this data, it is vital that appropriate security controls exist to cope with the increased risk of data loss and to ensure that users are made aware of the need to safeguard sensitive documents.
Boldon James Office Classifier meets that challenge by empowering users to apply relevant visual labels to documents and embed those labels into the document metadata. Office Classifier provides the most comprehensive set of labelling add-ins for key applications in the Microsoft Office© suite including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Visio and Project. Classifier labels enforce an organisation’s rules on handling and release of documents, automatically invoking other protective technologies such as Rights Management.

In this current day and age, smartphones are widely used for business purposes, whether that’s a company device or an individual’s own personal phone being used as a part of a BYOD policy. The only trouble is that not all corporate email messages should be mobile, which is why a mobile filter is a necessity.
While mobile use presents many benefits, from increasing efficiency to reducing costs and improving the mobility of your workforce, not all messages should be available on this platform. Why? Well, it is simple; do you really want confidential emails being read in public or stored on a handheld device that can be lost or stolen? The answer to this question is no. A mobile filter is a type of data classification product, which will detect any sensitive email messages and thus not appropriate for mobile viewing. These messages will not be synchronised, and so they will be blocked from all mobile platforms. If you implement a BYOD policy at your business, this is a necessity as it helps to combat the lack of control you have over users’ own devices. It can also offer peace of mind that your mobile workforce has the ability to work securely. Therefore, you can reap all of the benefits of enhanced connectivity, flexibility, and efficiency without the risks. To find the best mobile data classification tools, look for a programme that supports a wide range of devices, detects keywords you have set for message filtering, and notifies users when messages cannot be downloaded on their phone. It must also be easy to implement and should have received good feedback from previous users.
You can expect all this and more when choosing Boldon James Mobile Filter. We will ensure that the synchronisation of sensitive messages is effectively intercepted to protect your business. You can have confidence when choosing our service because of our outstanding reputation and over 30 years of experience.

The convenience and cost-effectiveness of cloud-based content sharing services presents a challenge to meeting regulatory compliance requirements and ensuring the protection of valuable data. Traditional security tools struggle to effectively monitor data moving to and from the cloud and between cloud platforms, which can lead to a failure to identify fraudulent use of data in the cloud, unauthorised downloads, and malware in the cloud. In order to help users make more informed sharing decisions around sensitive data, a more consistent data-centric protection approach is needed. By classifying data at the point of creation or update, data protection can be automated and extended into the Box platform – in effect the data controls itself.
Box Classifier extends document classification into cloud-based content and sharing services, ensuring organisations of all sizes have a unified and seamless solution for classification-based data protection and control regardless of its location. Boldon James Box Classifier enhances the functionality of the Box Governance add-on service – allowing organisations to capitalise on Box services while preserving control over their data held in Box. Box Classifier builds upon the metadata framework provided by Box Governance – ensuring a unified approach to document classification and data safeguarding.
MANAGEMENT & MONITORING
Classification policies are often simple at the point of initial implementation, but need to evolve and grow as business and legislative needs change. As a core part of the Classifier Platform, Classifier Administration provides everything System Administrators need to manage your scheme with simplicity.
