ClassifyIt, means CLASSIFY IT, in other words give it a classification, and suggests that you should classify and mark your documents. Knowing the classificaiton of your emails documents is the first and most important steps to protect your information.

ClassifyIt supports any layout and wording of your classifications.


What - Example: Information classification according to ISO 27001

ISO 27001 does not prescribe the levels of classification – this is something you should develop on your own, based on what is common in your country or in your industry. The bigger and more complex your organization is, the more levels of confidentiality you will have – for example, for a mid-size organization you may use this kind of information classification levels with three confidential levels and one public level:

  • Confidential (top confidentiality level)
  • Restricted (medium confidentiality level)
  • Internal use (lowest level of confidentiality)
  • Public (everyone can see the information



Utilize ClassifyIt to designate security classification labels for word documents or emails, enabling the marking of content with either a security classification or a sensitivity label. This feature facilitates the clear indication of the information's sensitivity level within the document or email.



Information classification is a vital part for ISO 27001 certifications. Without classifying your information by enforcing a classification marking to all emails, documents, presentations and sheets, there will be no common handing and protection by those having access.

Documents and emails are the main media to transfer information with others. Start with data leak prevention by using the ClassifyIt tool, providing awareness to your users/personnel with readable, not changable security classification markings. Further technical security measures are also important, but will follow on the basis of your classification markings.

ClassifyIt supports the security classification markings of documents (for example OPEN, RESTRICTED or SECRET) and markings indicating or authorising the releasae of the document (for example PUBLIC, INTERNAL, MANAGEMENT). With such markings all of your users know how to handle the document and on boundaries to external networks your guarding technology (e.g. mailguard) could verify that a recipient is allowed to receive such classified documents.


ClassifyIt supports 3 encryption schema - each schema uses AES-256 encryption:

     1. Standard Encryption: encrypts with build in keys and can be decrypted by any user of ClassifyIt

     2. Pin Encryption: encrypts with a key which is based on a PIN the user provides. Only recipients who are given the PIN (for example by phone) can decrypt.

     3. Public Key Encryption: encrypts by using the public key of the recipient(s). Only recipients who have the corresponding Private key can decrypt.


If you have a security marking policy for your company and use ClassifyIt to support and enforce this security marking policy. If you don't have a security marking policy you should create a simple one and then use ClassifyIt to support and enforce it - a great starter is the Traffic Light Protocol which is widely used by governmental organisations (see for instance the following WIKI link:
