Netwrix enhances Google Drive

IT security expert, Netwrix ( now delivers Data Classification for Google Drive and integrates with Microsoft information protection following the release of Netwrix Data Classification 5.5.2.

"New privacy laws are putting organizations under increasing pressure to find and secure the vast amounts of customer data they store and process," explains Steve Dickson, CEO, Netwrix.  "Information security professionals need simple yet powerful solutions that provide accurate information about the data they have, without introducing unnecessary complexity into the IT environment.  The new release of Netwrix Data Classification will help information security teams ensure that their security measures work as intended and ease the IT workload."


Enhancements to Netwrix Data Classification 5.5.2 include:

*  Data classification for Google Drive – Netwrix Data Classification now automatically identifies and classifies content stored on Google Drive so security and compliance teams can apply appropriate controls.  As a result, organizations can secure the sensitive data they store in the cloud and pass compliance audits with far less effort.

*  Integration with Microsoft Information Protection – Organizations can further reduce the risk of a breach by improving the effectiveness of their MIP controls.  Netwrix Data Classification enriches the data protection and rights management capabilities of MIP by accurately labelling data based on statistical analysis of corporate content. This enables organizations to reduce the risk of a data leak due to incorrect labelling and ensure that business processes are not disrupted because trivial files were falsely labelled as sensitive.

*  Predefined CCPA classification rules – Out-of-the-box classification rules make it easy to identify CCPA-regulated data, so organisations can ensure that the information they store about California residents is properly controlled and prove it during compliance audits.


The Netwrix Data Classification 5.5.2 enables customers to enrich Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) capabilities by accurately and consistently labelling documents; improve the security of sensitive content stored on their corporate Google Drive; and ease the burden of CCPA compliance.   More details about all the enhancements in Netwrix Data Classification can be found at
