)-- dataglobal, an industry leading provider of Information Archiving/Governance and Unified Data Classification solutions, today announced it is presenting at the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in the Windows Server 2012 Innovations Showcase at the invitation of Microsoft. Having recently announced its new dg classification 2.0 product at the Microsoft TechEd show in Orlando, Microsoft invited dataglobal to highlight its new technology in the Windows Server 2012 Data Governance Solution Wall at the Worldwide Partner Conference. Dataglobal’s unique use of the Dynamic Access Control features are expected to significantly contribute to the adoption of Windows Server 2012 to be announced this year.
dg Classification 2.0 is a comprehensive enterprise-wide data classification platform that enables security, GRC, eDiscovery and storage management applications to manage data and files with higher precision and more efficiency. Its unique integration of both external attribute- and content-based data classification technologies enable organizations to get more value from its unstructured data while reducing the company’s overall risk profile.
By working with Microsoft Windows Server 2012, dg classification 2.0 takes advantage of the unique ability of Microsoft’s Dynamic Access Control (DAC) infrastructure to attach metadata to files as they are being classified. In addition, working with Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows Server 2003, dg classification 2.0 can offer powerful enterprise-wide auto-classification capabilities to more fully protect corporates assets.
“dg classification provides a powerful value-based information management® platform that allows today’s organizations to mine the value of their unstructured data while being able to meet the complex needs of today’s expanding regulations and growing security requirements,” said Wolfgang Munz, dataglobal CEO. “Its ability to unify fragmented data operations with a centralized management platform that continuously categorizes new and changed data files in real-time ensures corporate assets are protected while reducing total cost of ownership simultaneously.”
dg Classification 2.0 is able to automate the data classification of millions of documents at a much more granular level by analyzing its content and assigning business-related Document Types (e.g., invoice, contract or proprietary research document). Organizations can define their own Document Types and assign properties and classification rules to fit their individual business needs. This dramatically reduces the complexity of enterprise-wide data classification by leveraging Windows Server 2012 ability to automatically tag information objects within the system, replacing the need for dedicated and separate repositories
"The security and records management communities have proven and defined the practice of data classification as an essential front-end service for efficient, successful, and robust governance, risk management, security and records management, litigation support, eDiscovery, archive, and compliance practices," said Michael Peterson, CEO of Strategic Research Corporation. "dataglobal’s approach adds profound capabilities and efficiencies to the management of information and risk in the enterprise and especially brings new levels of efficiency and cost reduction to IT. "
dg Classification 2.0 is a major upgrade to dg Classification 1.0 and will be available with the release of Microsoft Windows Server 2012.
