Data Classification in CloudLock’s Collaboration Security allows our customers to tag any files within their Google Apps environment that violate a policy. Administrators can configure their policies to tag identified files with a per-policy configurable tag value, allowing them and their end users to easily find any file that potentially violates a policy, understand which policy the file potentially violates, and then take action to remediate the policy violation.
Configuring the data classification feature in CloudLock requires administrators to specify an account that owns the tags within their Google Apps environment. This account should be a non-user system account that is dedicated to owning the tag folders for data classification. Administrators can find the configuration option within the policy engine settings:
Once the system account is configured, administrators can then configure custom tags in the policy actions area of policy configuration:
When the CloudLock policy engine identifies a file that violates a policy, it will tag the file with the configured tag, and the end user will be able to see the tags within their Google Drive environment:
As always, we welcome feedback from our customers, and would especially like to hear any stories about how data classification allows our customers to identify and protect sensitive data. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
