How CAD Classifier works

New product designs need to be protected so that data does not leak into the wrong hands – or the right ones too soon. Managing data and IP can get complicated when sharing information with organisations across the supply chain.

CAD Classifier brings the benefits of data classification to key design documents and CAD applications. You can apply relevant visual and metadata labels to Autodesk® AutoCAD® documents and receive guidance on labelling policy. In conjunction with Email Classifier, CAD Classifier can also ensure that such documents are only sent to appropriate departments or external organisations.


  • Put an end to accidental data leaks

    Automated warnings or confirmation requests can remove the risk of accidental data leaks. You can concentrate on supply chain management without the distractions of data control concerns.

  • Helping you attain IS027001

    CAD Classifier sits seamlessly within Autodesk® AutoCAD®, providing a quick and easy classification process for data as it is created or shared, supporting the achievement of ISO27001.

  • Use your existing Classifier configuration to protect your CAD content

    CAD Classifier enables your other Classifier software to recognise CAD file formats including DWG and DXF and to apply your existing data security policy to CAD files, helping to control data use and distribution across your organisation.

  • Reap rewards from your data protection investments

    With classification metadata enabling the consistent and regular automatic application of third party software such as DLP, archiving and encryption to sensitive data, your data protection solution will be more effective, giving you a better return on investment.
