The agenda of this presentation includes introducing you to the Trusted Edge Information Classification Engine from Filetek. We will cover the following: Content Compliance and Governance at the Edge of the enterprise. 80% of the content is created on desktops, laptops and PDAs The Business Scenario and the challenges corporations face today The FileTek Trusted Edge ICE for Symantec EV The Customer Benefits Alternatives and Competitors
FileTek develops, markets, and supports integrated data storage and access management systems that enable companies and government agencies worldwide to manage high volumes of fixed content data (petabytes) more efficiently and at lower costs than traditional approaches. For over 20 years, FileTek has delivered proven and stable solutions for the following business drivers: information lifecycle management (ILM) initiatives, regulatory compliance, digital preservation, active archives, and database extension systems. In April 2007, FileTek purchased substantially all the assets, including the intellectual property, of www.Trusted Edge.com Inc., a provider of ECompliance/Discovery solutions. Deployed at the network's edge, where 80% of information is created, Trusted Edge is a desktop solution that classifies all types of data (e-mails, documents, and files) upon creation and works within policy parameters to help companies/organizations meet today's stringent regulatory requirements
Trusted Edge provides a desktop agent which monitors the Trusted Edge administrative policy engine and provides for user and roll based classification on all devices including laptops, desktops and file shares. Trusted Edge has expanded our support to both emails and all file types. The ability to automatically collect the content metadata and embed a unique tag within the document ensures chain of custody auditing of content. Trusted Edge enables all content to be proactively classifed and routed to the Symantec Enterprise Vault.
1) Administrators create policies on the Trusted Edge Administration Server and publish them to end-user workstations. 2) At asset creation, Trusted Edge enforces classification policies, brands assets with a unique identifier, and routes them to the proper retention category or archive in Symantec Enterprise Vault. Trusted Edge can also retain a convenience copy or a desktop shortcut for assets on a user workstation. In addition, the software can archive an asset shortcut to one repository and have that shortcut point to an asset in Symantec Enterprise Vault (for example, a shortcut in SharePoint can link to an asset in Enterprise Vault). 3) The Trusted Edge Administration Server stores unique asset identifiers and asset metadata to provide a complete audit trail.
Lets look at two use case scenarios. 1) A salesperson creates an email 2) Upon send the user is presented with a classification screen based on the users Active Directory Group 3) The user then selects the category which best describes the email “Promotional” 4) Trusted Edge will then route the content based on policy to EV and the content is archived with the proper retention for a promotional classification
As you can see once the content has been classified, the Trusted Edge Policy routes the content to the proper location within EV and you can see the proper Retention has been applied.
When a user creates a document, upon save they are once again presented with a classification list based on their active directory credentials and they can select the proper classification such as Financial Statement Trusted Edge then routes the content to the proper locations within Enterprise Vault.
Since a Financial Statement is a permanent records of the corporation, it placed within EV with permanent preservation and a stub can be provided for easy access.
