Classification tool for SharePoint Online

Data security company Boldon James has announced the launch of SharePoint Classifier 3.10. This latest version of the product offers enhanced functionality and extends classification support to organisations using SharePoint Online as part of their Office 365 strategy.

According to a recent study of SharePoint users, cloud-based collaboration has become increasingly popular, with 61% of organisations running either a full cloud or hybrid SharePoint environment.

However, of those surveyed, the primary reason still preventing organisations moving their on-premise SharePoint environment to the Cloud was the associated security concerns (36%). SharePoint Classifier 3.10 ensures the persistent application of data protection measures based on classification, facilitating safer sharing and collaboration with a Cloud environment.

SharePoint Classifier 3.10 delivers the following features:

  • Supports SharePoint Online (Office 365) and on-premise SharePoint
  • Fosters user awareness of data sensitivity
  • Ensures document libraries contain only permitted files
  • Enables safer collaboration and sharing of sensitive documents
  • Quarantines prohibited documents using relocation or change of permissions
  • Simplifies classification of multiple files
  • Applies persistent metadata classification labels to drive other security and data management solutions
  • Shares a common classification user experience with all other Classifier products
  • Employs unified administration alongside other Classifier products
