Mr. Ram said, “Financial services companies like banks, insurance & broking are ‘opening up’ their information systems and processes for participation by customers, partners and vendors. This of course brings in a lot of value chain integration and lowers costs but comes with information security needs which cannot be fully met by solutions available now. Seclore’s technology for securing documents as they flow within and outside enterprises as well as securing data shared with outsourcing partners is extremely relevant to today’s needs.
