Content Classification Beauty Contest
Wednesday, November 14, 2007.
8:30 a.m. Pacific, 11:30 a.m. Eastern, 4:30 p.m. U.K., 5:30 p.m. CET. One hour.

Classifications are important for regulations and policy compliance, e-discovery, and information leak protection. Typically, when content falls within a category (such as "internal only" or "HR policy on minority-owned business"), specific actions are taken, such as blocking, third-party review, archiving, or encryption. Classifications may be performed manually or determined automatically, and many vendors provide solutions. In this webinar, we review classification approaches and implementation issues, and leading vendors present their solutions' competitive strengths. A Q&A session follows.
