Acaveo Simplifies Auto-Classification and Data Privacy Compliance for Unstructured Data with an Affordable Extension to Microsoft SharePoint.


“DataClassifier is very easy to use and it is simple to install in just a few minutes,” says Greg Campbell, Chief Architect, Acaveo.

Today, at ARMA Live! Conference 2013, Acaveo, the pioneer and innovator of a new category of information governance solution, announced it has launched DataClassifier, a low-cost data privacy and classification software for unstructured data. With Microsoft SharePoint search already running in an environment, DataClassifier is the most simple, affordable way to execute regular expression searches and apply classification policies to any data indexed by SharePoint.

“Classification of unstructured data is increasingly understood as a foundational element in successful information governance, yet the technology has not been tangible for most organizations,” says Geoff Bourgeois, CTO, Acaveo. “If you’ve already made the investment in SharePoint, then DataClassifier is a small incremental addition that unlocks exponential value from what you already have. As a seamless extension to an existing SharePoint investment, DataClassifier is a unique approach that avoids redundant processing of files and it doesn’t require you to generate another full text index while it enables your SharePoint search to achieve comparable results to the more expensive and complex auto-classification approaches.”

In addition to dozens of regular expression templates and a powerful policy engine, DataClassifier keeps record of policy history and includes an advanced search interface for auditing and reporting. Advanced search queries can be easily constructed and the search results format is highly customizable with the ability to generate reports or output a results summary to an Excel or CSV file.

“DataClassifier is very easy to use and it is simple to install in just a few minutes,” says Greg Campbell, Chief Architect, Acaveo. “We’ve published a resources page on our website specifically for DataClassifier where you can find instructional videos and all the documentation necessary to deploy and use this on your own.”

DataClassifier can be purchased as a standalone product while Acaveo is also including it in software assurance subscriptions for Smart Information Server. Companies using Acaveo’s Smart Information Server for next-generation information governance can leverage DataClassifier’s policies for advanced insights, tracking and remediation of data through Managed Properties.

“DataClassifier offers incredible value on its own,” says Geoff Bourgeois, CTO, Acaveo. “However, in combination with Smart Information Server, the value of classifications is exponentially increased for our customers. With DataClassifier identifying and tagging data, Smart Information Server can leverage the classification tags and policies to provide precise visualizations of the data while also making the data actionable for things like preservation, migration, monitoring and retention management.

DataClassifier works with SharePoint Server 2013 Standard and Enterprise and FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint and can be downloaded immediately for a 30-day free trial from DataClassifier is licensed per SharePoint indexing server at an introductory price of $4,995 per license.
