TITUS and Virtru partner for data protection

TITUS, a leading provider of data classification and protection solutions, has formed a partnership with Virtru to simplify data protection.

The strategic partnership with Virtru, a provider of encryption and data privacy solutions, will deliver integrated data security and compliance offerings for enterprises of all sizes according to TITUS.

To address the current issues around classifying and protecting regulated and corporate data, TITUS has integrated its flexible data classification capabilities with encryption and access control technologies from Virtru.

The first TITUS/Virtru integrations protect email and attachments, delivering data classification and encryption for Google G Suite, Microsoft Office 365 and Microsoft Outlook/Exchange.

Based on the open-standard Trusted Data Format (TDF), the pair aim to simplify the process of identifying, classifying, and protecting sensitive information. An organisation can set a policy that emails containing personal data from an European Union resident would always be encrypted before it reaches the cloud provider to help meet General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance requirements.

The partnership will help meet compliance regulations and standards such as the EU’s GDPR, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Export Administration Regulation (EAR), and many others, by accurately classifying and automatically applying encryption and access controls to emails and files.

It will ensure intellectual property and other corporate confidential information is only accessible to authorized parties. Together they will also allow security and risk professionals to connect and extend TITUS and Virtru to other security solutions of their choice, such as Data Loss Prevention and Cloud Access Security Brokers.

TITUS enables organisations to meet regulatory compliance requirements by identifying and securing unstructured data – on the desktop, on mobile devices, and in the cloud. The company helps with data classification, data loss prevention, data discovery, IP protection, insider threat prevention, privacy protection, mobile data security, and cloud data security, among other challenges. TITUS solutions are used by financial services organizations to help comply with regulations and standards such as PCI, SOX, FINRA, GLBA, and ISO 27001 and 27002.

“Organisations need to have the ability to protect data on their terms with the flexibility to set policies and actions that keep information flowing freely and securely,” said Jim Barkdoll, CEO of TITUS. “Virtru shares the same philosophy that data protection must be a seamless experience for end users that gives them the confidence to make the right decisions to keep valuable data secure.”

More than 8,000 organisations trust the Virtru Data Protection platform to protect and control sensitive information regardless of where it’s been created, stored or shared. Only Virtru combines the open standard Trusted Data Format (TDF) with patented Secure User-First Technology, which allows users anywhere, on any device to work the way they do today—without requiring a separate log-in, user interface or application.
