Data classification involves tagging data with the ease of searchability and tractability. It also eliminates multiple duplications of data, which can reduce storage and backup costs while speeding up the search process. Though the classification process may sound highly technical, it is a topic that should be understood by an organization’s leadership.

Major vendors of data classification include IBM (US), Google (US), Microsoft (US), AWS (US), Symantec (US), OpenText (Canada), Covata (Australia), Boldon James (England), Varonis (US), Innovative Routines International (IRI), Informatica (US), Dataguise (US), Spirion (US), Digital Guardian (US), Titus (Canada), Netwrix Corporation (US), PKWARE (US), GTB Technologies (US), Forcepoint (US), Sienna Group (US), MinerEye (Israel), SoftWorks AI (US), Expert TechSource (India), Clearswift (UK), Seclore (US), and Janusnet (Australia). These players have adopted various growth strategies, such as partnerships, agreements, and collaborations; and new product launches, to further expand their presence in the global data classification market. Key players have adopted partnerships and new product launches strategies majorly from 2016 to 2018, which helped them to innovate on their offerings and broaden their customer base.

IBM is a leader in delivering efficient data classification solutions to various industry verticals. IBM’s solutions use Watson’s capability for various applications.
