Businesses thrive on collaboration. However security and collaboration are mutually exclusive goals. Collaboration increases security risks. This problem is obvious when information is unstructured and in form of documents, emails and drawings. Of course sacrificing collaboration at the altar of information security is no solution, since it would seriously curtail and confine business interests.
Traditionally security works by constraining people, computers, to whom information can flow. This is done by creating perimeters and constraining information to flow within perimeter and not flow across the perimeter. But clearly this will restrict collaboration.
Seclore FileSecure achieves twin goals of collaboration and security by allowing one to collaborate outside the perimeter while keeping information secure through usage rights.
