We just released our new Windows Server 2008 R2 File Classification Infrastructure (FCI) solutions earlier this week. These solutions enhance FCI capabilities to classify and add metadata to files stored on Windows Server 2008 R2 file shares. This is a great way to get metadata on files before transferring them into SharePoint.
One of our new offerings, Owner Based Classification for FCI, allows organizations to assign metadata to files based on the role of the person that created the file. File classification is the critical first step in managing the sheer volume of unstructured data on file servers. To simplify the classification process, it is useful to start with an intelligent default based on file attributes such as the document's owner's role within the organization.
FCI provides out-of-the-box functionality to classify files based on location and content. Organizations can extend FCI's capabilities by using Titus Labs Owner-based Classification to classify files based on user role. For example, organizations can automatically classify Executive users' files as "High Sensitivity", or HR staff files as "HR Restricted".
Some of the Benefits of Owner Based Classification
- Enables automatic file classification based on the document owner’s role. This ensures that all documents start with an intelligent default.
- Applies classifications to thousands of documents at once. If the classification labels change, there is no need for users to manually re-classify the files because the updates occur automatically.
- Once assigned to files, the file and metadata can be transferred to SharePoint.
- Interoperates with Titus Labs Document Classification to enable users to change classifications applied by FCI.
- Generates classification metadata that can be used by other solutions to prevent data leakage. For example, the metadata can be used by Titus Labs Message Classification to prevent internal documents from slipping out in external emails.
