Titus Labs Announces Message Classification 3.1

Now Providing Inbound Email Labeling and Portion Marking for Email

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 23, 2009) - Titus Labs today announced a new release of its flagship offering, Titus Labs Message Classification (TMC). The latest version of the TMC software, version 3.1, delivers the power to label both inbound and outbound messages as well as classify portions of an email. TMC 3.1 enables users to label incoming mail to enable better records management. In addition, military organizations can now benefit from the new capability to classify portions of an email. These new features help organizations understand the value of what needs to be protected and to better find, manage and control sensitive data.

"E-mail management is a top priority at Bechtel," said Jerry Barnes, Corporate Records Manager. Bechtel."We have recently started to roll out the Titus Labs Message Classification product, which will help our efforts in the areas of security awareness and records management."

Organizations must protect information assets while promoting information sharing. The first step in solving this challenge is to classify emails at the time of creation, so that the organization can identify the information's value, and manage it according to the impact of its discovery to the public. This is also imperative to achieving compliance to the many data protection and privacy regulations that currently exist.

Titus Labs Message Classification for Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Web Access enables users to apply a business value with classification markings to emails before saving or sending. The people in an organization are the closest to the critical data and with TMC users can easily apply a business value to the content before it is sent. Titus Labs Message Classification easily integrates into existing IT and defense environments. Classifications are saved as metadata enhancing other infrastructure solutions, providing strong ROI and immediate compliance and information protection impact.

"Data classification helps prevent the inadvertent exposure of sensitive data while enabling more information access," said Tim Bloechl, Microsoft's Managing Director for Worldwide Public Safety and National Security. "Titus Labs Message Classification solution extends Microsoft Office and helps Military, Intelligence and other organizations using classified data: raises awareness of information sensitivity; helps ensure secure information sharing; and prevents data leakage to unauthorized recipients."

New features in of the TMC 3.1 release today include:

- Inbound message classification: Users can now classify inbox emails that have no existing classification. This enables users to better manage their inbox. For example, an organization may want to categorize emails as "Record" or "Non-record". With the inbound message classification feature, users can apply a record/non-record label to individual emails or groups of emails.

- Portion marking: Users can now classify individual sections of an email, including paragraphs, lists, and the subject line. These markings help to identify particularly sensitive portions of an email. The markings are compliant with government and military portion marking standards, and can also be used by any organization that wants to apply more granular markings to their emails.

"Time and time again, there are high profile cases of email slips that have a major impact on the organization's reputation and business," said Charlie Pulfer, Vice President Product Marketing, Titus Labs. "Organizations that take an integrated approach to email security which includes classification of inbound and outbound messages, as well as labelling, are able to create user awareness and strengthen overall email security. TMC's tight integration into Microsoft Outlook enables public and private sector organizations to seamlessly include classification and labelling as part of their strategy."
