New Integration Part of NC Protect’s Bring Your Own Classification Model

archTIS is pleased to announce we have partnered with Janusnet, a global leader in data classification, to offer robust classification and dynamic data protection for joint Defence and industry customers looking to implement data-centric zero trust security to protect sensitive information.

With twenty years of experience as a pure-play data classification vendor, Janusnet solutions are trusted globally by government agencies, defense, and defense suppliers to reduce the risk of data loss, meet compliance requirements, improve information control, and enable more secure collaboration across supply and value chains.

Janusnet’s Janusseal product provides practical, cost-effective, reliable data classification solutions for government and industry. archTIS’ NC Protect solution offers dynamic attribute-based access control (ABAC) policies to control access and apply data protection to Microsoft application data. Joint customers can now use Janusseal’s robust classification capabilities and pair them with NC Protect’s dynamic access and data-centric protection policies to safeguard sensitive data.

Greg Colla, co-founder of Janusnet, says, “The partnership between Janusnet and archTIS is a great example of the whole solution being greater than the sum of its parts. Combining the rich metadata embedded by Janusnet technology with archTIS’s exceptional ABAC capabilities delivers customers an outstanding solution to meet complex regulatory and security requirements for appropriately handling unstructured data. The experience and expertise across the archTIS team and the alignment of values and mutual trust between the two companies make this an exciting collaboration to solve the complex challenge of protecting sensitive data for customers.”

Leverage Janusseal Documents Classifications in NC Protect’s Dynamic Policies

Unique among data classification solutions, Janusnet simplifies classification in complex multi-jurisdictional environments with differing requirements by adding both visible and metadata markings to unstructured data according to organisation policy. Janusnet’s data classification solutions enforce the consistent embedding of metadata with human-readable markings across a broad range of file types. The classification metadata identifies a file’s sensitivity, handling restrictions, export controls, and codewords.

When combined with user and endpoint information, a file’s classification metadata enables NC Protect to seamlessly apply attribute-based access controls (ABAC) to prevent unauthorized access to information on a per-file basis as well as apply unique data protection capabilities including dynamic watermarks, CUI designation indicator labels, secure-read only access, and more.

The Janusseal integration is part of NC Protect’s ‘bring your own classification’ model which allows customers to use NC Protect’s classification engine or leverage existing classifications as one of the attributes used by the product’s dynamic ABAC policies. The ABAC model evaluates attributes including document, user and environment values against defined policies to control who can access information and under what conditions. NC Protect supports fine-grain ABAC-enabled access and data protection capabilities across Microsoft 365 applications, SharePoint on-premises and file shares.

Kurt Mueffelmann, Global COO and US President, archTIS stated, “Customers are looking for ways to add ABAC protection without sacrificing existing technology investments and classification processes. This new integration allows Janusseal customers to use their existing classifications with NC Protect policies to enhance sensitive data labelling capabilities with dynamic protection to meet government, defence and enterprise needs.”
