Titus achieves tech partner status in McAfee programme

Titus, provider of security and compliance solutions for email and documents, has become a Technology Partner in the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance following successful compatibility testing of its document classification solution with McAfee’s Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution.

The combination enables organisations to further reduce the risk of regulatory sanctions, and loss of brand reputation and customer confidence, by adding desktop user-driven document classification to their McAfee DLP deployments.

TITUS’ document classification enables organisations to capture employees’ knowledge about the sensitivity of documents, and make it available to McAfee DLP in the form of metadata. The result is more accurate decisions resulting in fewer false positives and increased security.

“Across all industries, organisations are looking for ways to complement their existing investments in DLP solutions and further enhance the secure sharing of their documents,” explained Tim Upton, president and CEO of Titus. “We are excited to be working with McAfee to provide customers with a complete approach to DLP at all stages of the information lifecycle.”

”We are pleased to welcome Titus to the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance. By implementing products that are compatible with McAfee solutions, our customers experience faster deployment times and reduced costs,” said Ed Barry, vice president of the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance. “The Titus document classification solution complements McAfee DLP and the joint solution provides our mutual customers greater control over managing the movement of their sensitive documents.”

McAfee DLP protects data automatically, identifies and controls critical data, secures information sent to third parties, safeguards enterprises from the risk of data loss, and proves compliance with less effort, while saving time and money with centralised deployment, management, and reporting.
