Symantec Information Centric Tagging
Data Classification to Identify and Protect Sensitive Data
Empower users to determine what data is truly sensitive and protect it.
Symantec Information Centric Tagging (ICT) allows employees to apply different levels of data classification. This leverages the knowledge and context that users inherently have to identify data that is truly sensitive in turn enhancing existing data protection solutions such as Data Loss Prevention. Data Classification is seamlessly integrated into the user interface of leading productivity applications, enabling employees to effortlessly apply a classification tag. Symantec ICT delivers more accurate data discovery outcomes, increases detection of structured and unstructured data, drives decisions on data protection, and improves user awareness and compliance with enterprise data protection policies.
Symantec Data Classification integrates with the industry-leading Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) to automatically detect sensitive data as well as automate remediation controls. ICT enables user-based data classification thus augmenting Symantec DLP capabilities of labeling and protecting your organization’s valuable information based on user’s data classification in addition to content. ICT with DLP can automatically trigger the appropriate protection response based on the level of data classification, including watermarking and encryption.
