Cabinet Office is driving a series of programmes with a view to making government ICT more streamlined, more cost effective, and less complex.
One of these programmes is End User Device Strategy: Security Framework and Controls (EUD Security Framework). EUD Security Framework represents a simple set of guidelines for the security architecture for devices that will connect to government services. At its highest level, EUD Security Framework is about the use of transparent and open industry, standards, along with a good deal of common sense.
At a strategic and tactical level, McAfee assists customers in achieving these standards and guidelines with its portfolio of products and implementation methodology included in the Security Connected platform.

TITUS® is a leading provider of security and compliance software that helps organizations share information securely while meeting policy and compliance requirements. TITUS solutions raise awareness and meet regulatory compliance by visually alerting end users to the sensitivity of information. Products include TITUS Classification, a leading message, document, and file classification and labeling solution; TITUS Aware, products that enhance data loss prevention by detecting sensitive information at the desktop; and the TITUS family of security solutions for Microsoft SharePoint. TITUS solutions are deployed to more than 1.5 million users within more than 300 military, government, and enterprise customers worldwide.

It does this by capturing end users' inherent knowledge about the sensitivity of documents and making that information available to McAfee host- and network-based DLP in the form of metadata for more accurate decisions and reduced false positives.
