If you use McAfee’s data loss prevention (DLP) software, you might be happy to know that it now has a Canadian connection. Recently, the company announced that Ottawa, ON’s
security and data governance products are compatible with McAfee’s
ePolicy Orchestrator version 4.6.
Charlie Pulfer, vice president of marketing at TITUS, noted that his firm “provides classification for software, emails and files. You can classify them as they’re being created.” Classification determines whether information is sensitive and should have a limited readership or not. He explained that TITUS’ products are used by organizations which handle a great deal of sensitive information, such as banks, governments and militaries.
Pulfer explained that TITUS’ relationship with McAfee stretches back two years. The two companies began working together when they discovered they had a joint customer who used McAfee’s DLP software and TITUS’ classification product. “We found that we had complementary data loss prevention programs,” Pulfer said. TITUS’ solutions reduce the chance of information being erroneously classified as sensitive, and as a result, DLP programs will do a better job of protecting the data which requires a higher level of security. Because McAfee has a large customer base, TITUS aimed to integrate its software “seamlessly” into that platform.
TITUS is a member of McAfee’s Security Innovation Alliance. The program accelerates the development of interoperable security products. Ed Barry, vice president of McAfee’s Security Innovation Alliance, remarked, “TITUS is a vital partner when it comes to data protection.” Although McAfee possesses what Barry called “a pretty strong platform” to protect and classify, TITUS’ classification tools helps McAfee address more security threats than it would be able to do otherwise.
