Enterprise Vault Data Classification Services - Implementation Guides


Note: Data Classification Services automates the classification of Microsoft Exchange email content. The new Enterprise Vault 12 Classification feature uses the Windows File Classification Infrastructure and a choice of classification engines to classify any content. For more information about Enterprise Vault 12 Classification, see http://www.veritas.com/docs/000100828.

Data Classification Services uses various components of Enterprise Vault and Symantec Data Loss Prevention to analyze Microsoft Exchange email content and help to determine the archiving and retention strategy for all messages.

Email content and metadata are automatically classified and assigned the appropriate archiving and retention policy. When users of applications like Compliance Accelerator and Discovery Accelerator conduct searches and reviews, they can filter messages according to the classification tags that Data Classification Services has applied to those messages.

The Implementation Guide provides instructions on how to do the following:

  • Download, install, and configure the various components.
  • Create classification policies to evaluate the content and metadata of each Exchange message.
  • Choose between a host of ready-made classification policies and policy templates.
