Titus and Boldon James are popular solutions for classifying and protectively labeling files and emails. McAfee DLP can integrate with these applications by calling the third-party API to identify tagged files and determine the tags. Classifications created with third-party tags can be applied email and to all protection and discovery rules that inspect files.
