Cost effective solutions for agencies and their contractors
Whether at state or national level, government bodies have always understood the need to maintain high standards and controls around information flow. As documents and communication become increasingly electronic, these agencies continue to recognise the intrinsic value in effective marking to classify the sensitivity of data and information being handled.
Once information is classified and marked, access control to sensitive information can be efficiently and effectively managed, minimising the potential impact of government data breach.
It follows that any contractors to these agencies must comply with the same set of rules and regulations applied by the agency they are contracted to.
As well as being reliable, information security and compliance solutions available to government agencies and their contractors must also be cost-effective.
Identifying and classifying sensitive information allows you to focus control measures on the information that needs protecting – making it easier and more affordable to enforce information security policy.
Reducing Risk, Minimising Costs
By providing a quick and easy mechanism for distinguishing between public information and sensitive material, information classification can reduce overall costs by allowing security efforts to target only the most sensitive material. Sensitive information can be manually classifed by the author or automatically classified using e-discovery tools.
Janusnet has a long history in the electronic marking of government information. Janusseal classification solutions support a whole range of government classifications and classification schemas that comply with the numerous government compliance standards now in operation worldwide. What's more, our solutions provide seamless integration with exising It security systems for fast deployment and implementation.
Information classification can be a valuable tool across all areas of government data handling, including:
- IP protection
- National security requirements
- Government information security compliance

USING CLASSIFICATION TO SUPPORT COMPLIANCE
When you need to ensure contractors are complying with information security regulations, information classification provides an effective, straightforward and affordable solution.
By allowing all people engaged in information handling to categorise sensitive information in emails, documents, and other files, easy-to-use products such as Janusseal for Outlook and Janusseal Documents help to improve information security, while making it simple to enable contractor compliance and to minimise supply chain risk.
If government contractors use the same classification schema as the contracting agency, they can ensure material is controlled and marked to the same degree of diligence that the government would apply to its own processes.
