The Power of Information Rights Management

With the continued need to share information outside of the perimeter, and the methods for sharing that information growing exponentially, the shift to file-centric security is a critical strategy for organizations.

The Number one way to Protect Information
That Leaves Your Organization

Whether you call it Digital Rights Management (DRM), Information Rights Management (IRM) or Enterprise DRM (EDRM), the goal is the same: to protect your files wherever they travel. If you are outsourcing statement printing, collaborating with board members, sharing technical specifications with sub-contractors, or sending price lists to distributors, you should be looking at Information Rights Management.

Three Rights Management Innovations

Information Rights Management has a ‘checkered’ past. Seclore obliterates the previous drawbacks of IRM in four ways:

  1. Greater Ease of Use: Recipients can use protected documents via their browser and senders can easily on-board new recipients and protect files with a single click.
  2. Support for Wider Number of File Formats & Devices: Enforce granular usage controls for any type of file using any type of device or desktop.
  3. Automation Speeds Adoption:  Pre-built connectors for DLP, EFSS, ECM and ERP systems provide automated ‘attachment’ of usage policies to documents as they are discovered, shared and downloaded.

Five Reasons Why the Time is Right for
Information Rights Management

  1. The Need to Collaborate Externally is Growing: TThe need to collaborate, and share information with third parties is increasing dramatically
  2. The Rise of the Borderless Enterprise: Outsourcing, BYOD, Cloud Computing, and the use of File Sharing services further blur the enterprise border, making information even more prone to leakage and misuse
  3. Current Solutions Aren’t Enough: DLP, file sharing, firewalls, basic encryption, and ECM secure information up to a point, but when these files leave the perimeter, they are unprotected and exposed to unauthorized users
  4. Granular Security puts You in Control: Attaching granular usage controls to your sensitive files enables you to enforce the recipient’s ability to view, edit, print, copy, run macros, and more
  5. Persistent File Security Stops Malware Attacks: These controls remain with the file wherever it goes, at rest, in transit, and at work. File-centric security is the last defense against malware and ransomware attacks.

Makes Perfect Sense (and Cents)

  1. Protecting policyholder and customer data wherever it is stored or shared
  2. Protecting technical specifications sent to sub-contractors and engineers
  3. Protecting roadmaps, proposals and bids sent to customers and prospects
  4. Protecting price lists sent to distributors
  5. Protecting board communications that are shared with members and advisors
