Canadian government selects Titus for email classification platform

Canadian government selects Titus for email classification platform 

SSC has been looking for an email classification provider since August 2013, when it published a notice on Public Works stating it was looking for a supplier that would “drive best practices in the secure handling of information, prevention against data leakage, [and] enforcement of personal information privacy.”

EEMCSS is part of the government’s plan to get its more than 100 email servers across 43 departments and agencies consolidated under a single, government-wide email platform.

“This contract positions Titus products as the email classification standard for Shared Services Canada and its 44 federal department partners,” said Tim Upton, founder, president and CEO, Titus. “Shared Services Canada chose Titus because of our product capabilities and demonstrated ability to partner with the Government of Canada, as well as other large organizations throughout the world, to ensure success in meeting their information security needs. This is a strategic win for Titus here in our own backyard!”

A number of departments within the Canadian government already use Titus solutions. These include the Treasury Board, the Department of Finance, Public Safety Canada, and the Department of National Defence.

Titus Message Classification provides the user with labels that can be customized to meet internal and regulatory marking standards and can be used to mark information such as data sensitivity and department. The product’s interface can be seamlessly integrated into Microsoft Outlook for a more user-friendly experience.

Titus’s Message Classification for Outlook Web Access (OWA) brings many of Message Classification’s features to OWA, but it can additionally restrict the viewing of sensitive information in OWA to prevent data loss.
