TITUS adds Machine Learning Capabilities to Identify and Protect Critical Data

TITUS, a provider of data protection solutions, has announced TITUS Intelligent Protection, which adds machine learning advances to its TITUS Classification Suite for Windows and TITUS Illuminate solutions.

TITUS Intelligent Protection enables TITUS users to train their solutions to add an element of automation to the identification and classification of documents and emails. 

"As much as we want people to be our strongest security link, they can benefit from the assistance machine learning provides," said Mark Cassetta , senior vice president, product management and strategy for TITUS.

"Machine learning is the first technology that actually scales and produces a repeatable way for expert views and definitions, in any enterprise, to be made available to every employee. By enabling organizations to harness the power of machine learning in concert with their current information security policies, TITUS Intelligent Protection offers the ability to scale their existing data protection strategy efficiently and effectively, without placing an additional burden on their employees."

TITUS provides a data-driven workflow that is designed to build valuable information from which knowledge can be derived. This methodology enables organizations to create a data protection strategy that best suits their unique needs.

Capabilities immediately available include:

  • Confident automation and protection of sensitive information: TITUS Intelligent Protection offers organizations the ability to build and train models that reflect the sensitive information unique to their organization. This enables the organization to confidently apply automation to the detection, classification and protection of their sensitive data.
  • Machine learning-assisted classification: With the integration of TITUS Intelligent Protection capabilities, users will see a recommended classification for content they've created based on the recommendation of their machine learning model. This lifts the burden from end users, who then only need to simply confirm the classification as opposed to determining the category on their own.
  • Extend intelligence to the ecosystem: After TITUS applies intelligence to identify sensitive information, that identity travels with the data. This helps optimize an organization's security strategy by bringing a rich set of context to rights management and/or data loss prevention solutions, including cloud access security brokers (CASBs) and/or next-generation firewalls (NGFWs).
