The Mac Classifier product meets the enterprise market need to extend classification coverage to Mac desktop and laptop devices, which are more frequently used by senior executives where sensitive data protection is paramount, in addition to the traditional dominance of Mac in the creative and media industries. According to analyst firm IDC, Mac market share has grown to a record 8% compared to other operating systems, with Mac usage replacing PCs at an unprecedented rate, partly fuelled by lower running costs and increased security.
In summary, Mac Classifier delivers the following:
- Covers all key Office for Mac applications, including Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint
- Engages Mac users in process of preventing data loss
- Shares a common classification user-experience with all other Classifier products
- Employs unified administration alongside other Classifier products
- Applies metadata classification labels to drive other security and data management solutions
Commenting on the launch, Martin Sugden, CEO at Boldon James, said "The launch of Mac Classifier extends our data classification capabilities to cover the widest range of productivity applications and operating systems of any vendor.
