Titus Labs Introduces New Family of Solutions for the Microsoft SharePoint Platform

Solutions add information classification and enhanced security to SharePoint

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 10, 2009) - Titus Labs, a leading provider of email and document classification software, today announced the release of a new family of products for the Microsoft Office SharePoint Environment. The three products - Titus Labs PDF Control for SharePoint, Titus Labs Document Marking for SharePoint and Titus Labs Office Converter for SharePoint - offer customers enhanced classification and security solutions for the Microsoft SharePoint platform.

A growing number of customers have deployed Microsoft SharePoint as a critical platform for document and records management. In a 2007 survey conducted by AIIM, over 60% of the respondents indicated they planned to use SharePoint for document management. As critical documents and records are moved to SharePoint, there is a growing need for classification and increased security.

"Our customers are deploying SharePoint to handle their most critical document and records management requirements," said Curt Kolcun, Vice President, Microsoft US Public Sector. "Information classification is an important step in the complete lifecycle of document and record management. Titus Labs' experience in information classification and document security is important for enterprise organizations that rely on SharePoint in mission-critical environments."

A key challenge faced by organizations using SharePoint is that employees often forget to add classification markings to documents, or that they already have thousands of existing documents in SharePoint. Titus Labs Document Marking for SharePoint is designed to overcome these issues by automatically adding labels to Office documents as they are added to the SharePoint library. Furthermore, administrators can simply assign a label policy to documents in an existing document library. The new SharePoint product offerings serve to enhance existing SharePoint implementations by adding a new layer of document security and driving user awareness of how information should be handled.

Titus Labs is introducing the following products:

- Titus Labs Document Marking for SharePoint.- Automatically applies classification labels and watermarks to existing and new Microsoft Office documents in order to raise the awareness of sensitive information and achieve compliance.

- Titus Labs PDF Control for SharePoint - Automatically generates PDF versions of Office documents to facilitate sharing of information and to produce a document format appropriate for archiving.

- Titus Labs Document Converter for SharePoint - Automatically converts Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents in SharePoint to Office 2007, enabling standardization on a single file format and minimizing compatibility issues.

"As a provider of information classification solutions for the Microsoft Office platform over the past five years we have seen the large and growing acceptance of Microsoft SharePoint as a critical platform for managing information assets," said Charlie Pulfer, VP Product Management, Titus Labs. "Customers have a clear need for additional tools for classification and enhanced document security. Our new family of products for the SharePoint platform is designed to meet and exceed on these requirements."
