SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Verdasys, provider of Enterprise Information Protection (EIP) solutions for Global 2000 and mid-sized companies, and TITUS, a leading provider of information security and data governance software, today announced an extension of their successful partnership to deliver advanced user-based classification as a fully integrated service in the recently launched Verdasys Managed Service for Information Protection (MSIP).
Verdasys MSIP is the first cloud-based, turnkey managed service for complete IP and insider threat protection. TITUS user-based classification enables superior discretion over the identification and management of sensitive documents, while assuring end user accountability with real-time decision support and fully-auditable activity logs. The announcement is made at the RSA Conference 2013 at the Moscone Center Feb. 25-March 1.
Verdasys and TITUS announced a partnership in 2011 to add integrated user classification to the Verdasys Digital Guardian® EIP platform, used to secure some of the world’s most proprietary and valuable data. Today's announcement extends integration to Verdasys MSIP, a turnkey managed service built on Digital Guardian that allows organizations such as finance, manufacturing, technology, pharmaceutical and defense to quickly implement a best-of-breed data security program without costly investments in supporting infrastructure or staff. The TITUS-based MSIP "User Classification Module" extends Verdasys' content and context-based classification capabilities to include multiple user-driven and auditable metadata options from TITUS, including TITUS Message Classification (TMC), TITUS Classification for Microsoft Office(TCO) and TITUS Classification for Desktop (TCD).
According to Tim Upton, President and CEO of TITUS, "With MSIP, Verdasys brings over a decade of data loss prevention expertise to enable advanced, risk-based protection from both internal and external threats. We're very pleased to be partnering with them to again offer integration of our classification products in this innovative new service."
Verdasys President and CEO Jim Ricotta added, "With TITUS, we can offer our managed service customers powerful, user-driven information classification, metadata tagging and electronic data watermarking capabilities that are unequaled in providing discretion over the identification and management of sensitive documents." With the added capabilities of TITUS delivered through Verdasys MSIP, a team member can, for example, add a "trade secret" design feature to a file and re-classify it as “SECRET” by simply invoking User Classification, thus, instructing MSIP agents to enforce a more restrictive policy limiting file access to only the internal design team.
Verdasys MSIP with integrated TITUS user-based classification is deployed, configured and administered by Verdasys data security experts through the MSIP Secure Cloud, eliminating the need for substantial investments in infrastructure and specialized staff in order to put into action the type of data security and intellectual property protection previously accessible only by the world's largest companies.
Verdasys is at the RSA Security Conference Booth 2738; TITUS is at Booth 1017.
