Automated Classification
Of Data At Rest

Knowledge Classifier Diagram
Companies have an enormous amount of data stored on drives or in the Cloud that has not been classified. DLP or other security programs may not protect this data from data breaches unless the data is first classified Boldon James, the leader in user-centric data classification, has expanded its range of products with the introduction of Knowledge Classifier which allows customers to classify data at rest with a data classification service. Data that is stored either locally, on a network or in the cloud can be scanned with the data classification service and the files will be classified according to your company’s policy. Applying Knowledge Classifier to data at rest meets multiple objectives: firstly it addresses the problem of classifying older files, and secondly confirms the classification value previously applied by end-users. Only once data is classified can further tools be used to protect and manage this data. Knowledge Classifier uses AI techniques to take information from different sources in order to identify and classify data files at rest. Input data can either be from Boldon James, content and concept, file scanning or third-party discovery and search tools.
