Alphawest said Classify for Microsoft Office allows users to track and audit intellectual property and documents.
The application will help Alphawest raise its profile against competitors in IT security for business and government, according to the company.
Mark Towers, national manager for information management at Alphawest, said information audit and tracking was increasing in importance. “Classify will work with existing information management technologies to deliver an unsurpassed level of functionality,” he claimed.
Business information and knowledge increasingly relies on IT, which opened greater opportunities for misappropriation which could directly or indirectly cause financial loss. However, Classify auditing did not require additional client-based software and could be integrated with document and records management packages, Alphawest said.
Anthony Turco, managing director at Sydney-based ISV Panareef, said Alphawest was chosen for its leadership in the information management market and specialised security-focused staff.
“This opportunity will enable Panareef to focus on continued development of Classify to provide similar functionality across a number of application platforms,” he said.
Alphawest is an Australian-owned IT services integrator, operating across Asia-Pacific. The company claims its main focus to be information management, infrastructure and business continuity. It has about 425 staff in Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide, Perth, Bunbury and Singapore offices.
