Data Classification Services uses various components of Symantec Enterprise Vault and Symantec Data Loss Prevention to analyze Microsoft Exchange email content and help to determine the archiving and retention strategy for all messages.

Email content and metadata are automatically classified and assigned the appropriate archiving and retention policy. When users of applications like Symantec Compliance Accelerator and Symantec Discovery Accelerator conduct searches and reviews, they can filter messages according to the classification tags that Data Classification Services has applied to those messages.

The Implementation Guide provides instructions on how to do the following:

  • Download, install, and configure the various components.
  • Create classification policies to evaluate the content and metadata of each Exchange message.
  • Choose between a host of ready-made classification policies and policy templates.
  • Migrate from Automatic Classification Engine (ACE) to Data Classification Services, if you previously used ACE with Enterprise Vault 9.0 or earlier.

The Enterprise Vault Compatibility Charts provide more information on supported combinations of Enterprise Vault and Data Loss Prevention.
